Scheduling your Spring Commissioning and Launch in 2018

The days are getting longer and some of you are getting itchy to cast off the winter covers.  We will be mailing information to all current marina and boatyard customers in early March to obtain your service and launch date request.  You can review the likely items that will need attention on our Spring Service Order page, or e-mail, or call the office with your questions; 781-925-0044.  New customers welcome.   Also, if you've stored your boat in your yard or at another site, ask us about hauling your boat to Steamboat for service and launching here at the marina.

Slips Layout and Pricing for 2018

New Dockage rates are set for 2018.  We are again offering discounts for early and timely payment.  Current slip customers in good standing will be receiving slip cost estimates and 2018 licenses during the first week of December.  Deposits are due by January 15, 2018.  After that we'll be able to consider requests from new customers.

We were sold out for the 2017 season and expect a high rate of renewal.  We keep a waiting list and if you'd like to be on our contact list for openings in the future, please submit our request using our web form



2017-18 Winter projects

We're hauling, winterizing, and shrink wrapping, but it won't be long before the snow flies and we're busy completing winter projects indoors.  With two large service bays that can handle boats up to 40 feet we are able to complete a wide range of maintenance and upgrades that you won't want to put off until it is time to launch next spring.  Call (781-925-0044), e-mail, or stop by now to tell us about your needs, get an estimate, and get your work scheduled so that your boat is ready for 2018!
