Beautiful, friendly, quiet mooring and a safe harbor! Jason was very accommodating especially during these COVID times. We were not able to go ashore since we are from RI but thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay. Great inlets to explore by dingy too!
Holly, thank you so much for the kind words and 5 star review! It was a pleasure having you with us and I look forward to seeing you back in Kittery soon. Have a safe and happy boating season. Jason, Dockmaster

What a great, understated and hidden spot...our slip neighbors could not have been more friendly and Jason could not have been more helpful...this is definitely a spot that we will return to.

We had a great experience at KPYY. The mooring field is incredibly calm and quiet. Jason and the staff at the yard were friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend picking up a mooring at KPYY if you are in the Kittery/Portsmouth area. One recommendation for anyone wanting to visit Portsmouth from the mooring field, don’t bother running a dinghy over to Prescott park. Crossing the Piscataqua River in a small dinghy can be a little dicey and your reward is to pay $8/hr to dock your dinghy at the Prescott Park town docks. Much faster, more comfortable, safer, and likely cheaper to just Uber from the yard for $10-$15. We will definitely stop here again.
Garrett, thank you for the excellent review. It was our pleasure having you and your family with us for a couple of days. Hopefully you will be back soon! In addition to the review of our facility we also appreciate your recommendation regarding the Prescott Park docks. I can pass that info onto others that want to head over to Portsmouth. I hope you have a safe and happy rest of your summer and we can connect again soon. Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

Great facility, great people! We had engine problems in the middle of our trip, and Kittery Point Yacht Yard was able to work us into their service schedule, fix our engine, and be a very nice place to stop while we waited for repairs. The yard is just the right size--small enough for personalized service, but large enough to have specialized craftsmen who can do any job well.
We picked up one of their moorings in Back Channel and were pleased. The moorings are in good repair, and Back Channel is very sheltered from the weather. It is also sheltered from all the wake in the Piscataqua River, and the local fishing boats all passed through the mooring field at a slow bell, which is unusual in our experience in Maine waters.
We highly recommend KPYY, whether it's just for a mooring for the night, or for any kind of repair. Thank you so much, Jason, Mike, and all the crew!
Thank you for taking the time to give us such a great review! We love hearing all feedback and having it be so positive is the icing on the cake. We hope you have a safe and uneventful trip Downeast. Let me know if you need anything else from our end. Hopefully you will be able to get back to Kittery soon. Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

Used a mooring ball for two nights. Very easy pickup and secure during our stay. Visited the marina facilities and obtained a needed fuse for our generator. Took an easy and beautiful walk into Kittery and enjoyed lunch at the Beach Pea Bakery. Would recommend Kittery Point Yacht Yard.
Rob, thank you for the review! We love hearing feedback from our guests. I hope that the traffic is not as busy for you when you return. Please let me know if you have any questions or have any special requests for your next visit with us. Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

After a hiatus from sailing and I planned to return to the sea with a Catalina I purchased. KPYY in the back channel accepted my reservation request for several days of mooring. However, while I had checked out my outboard motors for the small sail boat and dinghy; after launching the 25 footer in the Piscataquis river far upstream from the KPYY mooring site both engines failed. Lucky for me KPYY has a service location in Elliot Maine a few 100 yards form my launch point. Dave at the Elliot KPYY extended the courtesies of a short tow to his service dock where I restored my engine.
I made my way to my Kittery KPYY, mooring. I found it to be a quiet accommodating location. There I found on shore crew accommodations well provisioned with ice, showers and convenient bicycle transportation.
I have stayed at several marina and rate KPYY at step above all.
Harold, thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review, we appreciate your feedback. I hope you're able to get out on the water as much as possible before it gets cold again. Let us know if you need any help with the boat! Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

Dingy down to the second bridge where there’s a dock and it’s a short walk to a local meat market and a produce store with local products and a decent wine selection. Nice Moorings with a swift current and shady lanes.
Jerry, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We always appreciate hearing how your stay was, and getting a 5 star review is the icing on the cake! I hope you have a safe and happy rest of your summer and you're able to return soon. Jason Tittle, Dockmaster

Moorings are fine, location is beautiful but nobody answered our inquiries and we were unable to access the facilities because we were not given information about how to get in, despite calling and messaging them on Dockwa.
We are of course disappointed that your experience with us was not what you expected. We strive to exceed expectations and more often than not we accomplish that goal.
As we discussed on the phone I am sorry for the miscommunication and not getting the information you needed for our facilities to you when you needed that info. I am hopeful that you will return for another try, if you do that mooring will be on us. I hope the rest of your trip goes well and you have a safe and happy rest of your summer.

Beautiful location. Quiet. Convenient and nice guest area by the shower, with a coffee machine. Trash and recycling convenient.
Walk to town with restaurants and shops 1.3 miles.

We had a nice stay. It was quiet. Jason was very helpful with information emailed to us while enroute. Our ETA was after the office closed.
Thank you for the kind words! Hopefully we will see you again soon. Jason Tittle Dockmaster

Great stay at KPYY Staff are very professional and friendly. Jason runs a great yard and is a pleasure to work with. Moorings and docks are in perfect condition and very protected from Wind and wakes. Internet was a little spotty sometimes. Only place in Portsmouth area I would stay.
Thank you for the review! I am happy you were able to stay with us and that you enjoyed yourself. Looking forward to seeing you again soon. Hopefully we can get the WiFi sorted out before you return. Jason Tittle Dockmaster

One of the smoothest stays we’ve ever had on a mooring. Can’t say enough about Jason. Emailed map and mooring assignment right away and was there to greet and help when we arrived. A definite go back to.

It was great, but we missed having a launch.

Reserved a night on a mooring to rest for the night on our trip from Noank CT to Portland Maine.
Very well maintained
Arrived at 6:00 PM on a Sunday and the facility was closed, but Manager Jason had reached out to via e-mail to ensure that I was familiar with his mooring field, the lay out of the facility, and the acces codes.
Only inconvenience was there being 1 bathroom w/shower. It took quite some time for the 5 of us to cycle thru and quite a wait the next morning.
Additionally l would note that we were unsuccessfull hailing a cab/Uber/Lyft when trying to go into town for dinner.
The one cab that would come out had a 45 minute lead time. We did however find a Chinese restaurant that delivers and feasted in the Yard Lounge
