Marinas & Yacht Clubs

  • Boston Waterboat Marina on Historic Boston Harbor. Located on historic Long Wharf in Boston Harbor, Boston Waterboat Marina is just steps away from Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market, New England Aquarium, Old Ironsides, and countless world class restaurants. Charm and spectacular views punctuate this quiet and safe marina. Accommodating vessels from 30 ft. up to 150 ft. long. 66 Long Warf (North Side), Boston, MA 02110. Ph: (617) 523-1027, Fax: (617) 523-1215. VHF 09. Website, Email, 42º21.67N, 70º03.01W.


  • FREE ANCHORAGE: Just outside the charted general anchorage B in Hull, MA 42.17.463N 70.53.375W. There's a public dock with a posted half hour limit but no one (official) minds if you leave your dinghy longer. The docks are highly used for swimming by the local kids and teens so locking your dinghy up to the key is advisable. There's water key side that no one minds if you use and a local pub just up the street Steve's Place, great local spot. There's a Tedeschi's convenient store and a liquore store on the same corner. It's about a mile and a half alk to the nearest small grocery and there is no major shopping nearby but if you get a local bus schedule busses do run hourly and there is also a local commuter ferry that will take you into Boston several times a day in about an hour for $12 round trip.
