Boaters' Choice 2021


Located on the coveted Northeast waterfront of Hoboken, the Shipyard Marina is a important part of this community. The marina boasts an exceptional location that is convenient to transportation as well as a wealth of businesses. Midtown or downtown New York City is a fast NY Waterway ferry ride from neighboring Pier 14. There is a New Jersey Transit 126 bus stop that whisks you into the heart of Times Square. Car share (Uber/Lyft) and the 24/7 PATH subway are also great option. The marina is attached to Pier 13 Hoboken cocktail lounge, and a short walk to breakfast, lunch and dinner restaurant options, nightlife, a supermarket, a liquor store and a parking garage. We can accommodate boats up to 60' in length and have seasonal, monthly, weekly, daily and hourly Dock & Dine rates. Come stay with us and enjoy all that Hoboken has to offer!

Stayed there for a couple days. The manager and his team were very helpful and accommodating. Definitely the best location in town - literally 15 minutes away from midtown by bus (~$3). The only downside is the wake from nearby ferry, not really an issue at night or if you’re there for a few days. Marina has plans to build a breaker, which will make this marina even better!

It's very rocky because it's directly exposed to traffic on the Hudson but there's always something going on and the marina staff can't be nicer or more accommodating. Will definitely return.

Marina Response:
Thank you for the kind words and being understandable about our exposure to the New York Harbor ferry wakes. We are continuously making improvements so please do come again soon.

The marina has a great location, however, my slip was too small for my boat. The marina does not have wake protection, consequently, we couldn't sleep because the boat was aggressively banging on both sides of the slip. Basically, there are no amenities. The bathroom does not have showers and is located in the busy food court area. Finally, the gate closed 9:30 PM and they didn't provide a key for us. One good thing is the internet, an excellent signal. I cannot recommend this marina.

Marina Response:
We are sorry that your visit was so difficult. We are working on wave attenuation solutions as we are exposed to the commuter ferry wakes. We do provide transient keys for 24/7 access when you are a guest and apologize that that key was not provided to you. We hope you will consider another visit especially after we install a wave attenuation wall.

This is a terrible location due to the lack of any protection from wakes that sweep through all day and well into late evening. You'll need all your fenders and then some. The place is minimally staffed. No one answered radio or telephone when we were approaching dock. No showers. No wifi.

Marina Response:
Hello, we are sorry that your experience was not exceptional. We are consistently making improvements and your feedback will be taken into account. We've completely replaced our Wifi system and we've been exploring wave attenuation solutions to protect us from the ferry wakes that roll through during daylight and evening hours.

As a 12 year seasonal customer I find the Shipyard crew and management helpful, pleasant and professional .

The Shipyard Marina is unique. It’s small and well contained. There’s an active sailing club on site as well as a group giving jet ski tours of the NY waterfront. The place was bustling all day. Pier 13, on which the marina is located, is home to an ongoing food truck festival as well as a busy and popular bar the occupies more than half the pier. The view of midtown Manhattan across the River is enough to occupy your interest for a long time. The lights at night are amazing. The next pier over (Pier 14) is home to a ferry terminal with routes to both Midtown and Downtown Manhattan. The main piers at the marina are modern floating concrete docks. Our boat was too big for their slips so we were tied up (with outstanding help from an eager dockhand) on a wooden extension of the concrete dock. It was parallel to Pier 13 and below the back of the bar buildings. The buildings kept the noise from the bar to a very low level. After the bar closed, all was very quiet. As is inevitable on the Hudson across from NYC, the water is busy and our boat moved around quite a bit. This too settled down after dark. There is a wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance of the marina if you’re not into food trucks. There is a decent market and a Walgreens drug store just 2 blocks away. The best thing about this stay was the attitude of the staff. Everybody we met was eager to help and just as eager to engage in long conversations. They were all wonderful! This will be our “go to” marina when passing through NYC.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the shipyard Marina. The staff was very helpful. The view is gorgeous. And the area is very convienint. Grocery and pharmacy close by a dog park, great restaurants. Everything you could ask for. This will be our stop when in the area again and again.

Had basics and no more. Incredible roll at the dock. Felt unsafe getting on and off the boat. Roll subsided 10-11 pm. We left 5:30 am the following day. Had trouble calling and booking. When I called the calls went to voicemail. Voice mail was full and could not take a message. Would not stay again.

At first glance this marina does not look impressive but as the old saying goes, do not judge a book by its cover. This will be our marina of choice when traveling the Hudson from now on. Dock hands were amazing, friendly, helpful AND respectful. There’s a great little dog park just in front of the marina which was very helpful. The BEST part of this marina was the unobstructed views of NYC we had, top notch and best we’ve ever had. The marina is central in Hoboken (town) and we were able to walk the town which had great shops and restaurants.

2016 Update. The docks at the Shipyard Marina are being replaced with heavy duty floating concrete docks for the upcoming 2016 season. There is new management and staff on board to give tenants the customer service they deserve. Regards, Shipyard Marina Management [email protected] 201-798-8080

My condos assoc has a few boats here in the summer and aside from the view, this is a really lame marina. Staff is NOT knowledgeable or even available half the time. Very corporate feel to it. I recommend Liberty Landing for anyone looking for a real boating community.
