Come see why sailors love to hide out here! :-) Voted best harbor in the United States 2019, runner up 2020 and 2021 usharbors.com

Staff and club all great and thanks to the launch driver who pointed out the local ice cream place but we had a miserable night on an outer mooring. With the strong south & southerwesterly the motion was really uncomfortable. Would not go back in other than settled conditions.

Great harbor. The fuel dock staff and launch service staff were great. Unfortunately the club was closed so we didn’t get to experience anything NBYC has to offer.

Good stay and great launch service. Only complaint is the mooring we are on was way in the outer harbor and being open to the East it was a tad rough.

Nice little harbor. I don’t think I’ll be back for an overnight. Extremely bouncy night. Really not much to do except pursue some basket shops. No beach. NBYC closed for Labor Day Sunday?

The staff was very helpful and welcoming. It turned out we had chosen to stop in the harbor when not only was the Club's restaurant closed but most restaurants in town were as well. Our bad luck, no one's fault. However, we were placed on a very distant mooring at the harbor's entrance and when the swells started rolling in, we decided to drop the mooring and head to a more comfortable stay elsewhere.

We arrived just after sunset and were thrilled that the launch greeted us and escorted us to our mooring. There was not a pick-up stick, but no problem threading the bow line through the eye on top of the mooring ball. We also filled our diesel tanks at their fuel dock in the morning. Plenty of room, great protection on the pilings and pleasant staff.

Greeted by a very knowledgeable launch driver with 21 years experience at NBYC. He informed us of all the amenities (numerous) and recommended several places for dinner but the yacht club was our choice and happily so. Padanaram is a lovely stop for an overnight and to stretch the legs around the village.

Stopped for the night en route to Mass from RI with our new to us 42 foot boat. Mark was amazing. He changed our mooring the day of to offer us better protection and came out on his motor boat to help us with the actual hookup. Highly recommendable location and very easy approach.

Each year for at least 5 years, we visit NBYC. Always pleasant. Lovely facility, excellent launch drivers as we typically are on a mooring. Also great home made ice cream near the bridge. See you next year.

The New Bedford YC provided a great visit to our yacht club cruising group. Safe, outdoor dining, and even meals delivered to your boat via launch, if preferred. A favorite harbor, as always

Dining room and staff isn’t being aware and following the governments laws for covid protocol. Staff isn’t washing hands, bartenders using phones, computers, etc and serving drinks food to patrons. Not taking countability in guests safety for out of state travelers. Kitchen staff not masked while prepping/cooking.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Facilities were clean and well stocked. Quaint New England surroundings. Authentic bells and cannon fire at sunset and flag raising. Would definitely stay there again but careful of the swell with strong SE winds.
