This place has got it all, beautiful, protected setting, very professional operation, delicious and healthy food at the Chart House, and a lively but not rowdy night scene. Highly recommended!!!

Scott and his family were spectacular on our ‘extended’ stay at Kingman. Needing to stay a few extra days due to both weather and mechanical issues, the team at Kingman made it effortless and relaxing. Deb and Jim in service were rock stars, not only finding me a part for my boat that would have been otherwise hard to find, Deb negotiated a much lower price saving me hundreds. It’s possible we made up the difference in mudslides. Within two hours of the part being delivered, we were untied and on our way.

We hope be back next year, but also hope to see Scott and team at the MBYCA Invasion next summer.

Thanks again for your hospitality and professionalism.

John and Carol and the WYC Castaways.

Not a fun experience. Had to hail the marina multiple times just to get a slip assignment when pulling into the harbor. An email or call in advance would be much easier. Then I return to the boat to find that it has been moved without my permission because they double booked my slip and gave it away to another customer and left mine on the fuel dock. Only way I found this out was because the guy who my slip was given too told me. A simple phone call or email notifying me that they needed to move it or put it in another slip would have been the bare minimum I would have expected. Instead I go down to where my boat was parked and it was just gone.

Marina Response:
We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced during your arrival. Not that it should make any difference, but all of our slips are privately owned and I believe that the owner of your assigned slip decided to come back a day earlier than he had told us. You arrived back at your boat while we were waiting to move it to a new assignment which was not yet vacant. We would certainly have called to tell you of the new location once you were all tucked in. If you will email me at [email protected] with your contact information and boat name, I will see that we refund your dockage for the evening. I trust that the rest of your stay was enjoyable and hope that we'll have a chance to show you a better time upon a return visit.

Easy end slip. Dock help indicated we should check in and get a tote bag. When we went to the office they didn't offer us anything. Protected marina. Some waves from the launch but they end early. Suggest making reservations for the restaurant since it gets really busy. Bathrooms were clean but a short walk away. Had hoped to visit Bassetts island but the weather didn't cooperate. Will return another time.

Marina Response:
Thank you for visiting Kingman Yacht Center, and for taking the time to share your review. If you didn't receive your complimentary tote bag, please email your address to [email protected] and I'll pop one in the mail to you. We hope to see you again soon!

Full service yard if you need it; launch drivers responsive and helpful. Young woman at desk in dockhouse seemed to be having a bad day...every day. Popular restaurant on site. "Hiking trails" are at county park about .5 mi up winding road with no sidewalk. "Private Beach" is at Barrett's Island across harbor.

Marina Response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. We hope you'll visit again so we can work to earn the rest of those stars.

by jrosen54 on Aug 09, 2018

Kingman and the Pocassett harbor are wonderful. Great facilities and service. One of the most beautiful place that I have ever sat and watch the sunset, the wind, the sea and the stars.

Marina Response:

Great staff, had a breakdown coming in at 2pm on a Saturday. They quickly helped us to the dock, got a mechanic on board who found the problem and had us on our way by 4. Very helpful, friendly, smart.

Marina Response:
Thank you for your kind words about Kingman Yacht Center. We hope that your next visit will be much less eventful!

by ultraccd on Jul 09, 2018

Staff was very confused about where we were going to dock. They did however do a nice job of helping us tie up, but then disappeared in a flash without mentioning a word ( i.e. nothing about their facility or layout). Surrounding area is nice, even if the marina is a long way down a winding, narrow and very shallow channel. We would consider staying here again.

Marina Response:
We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced upon arrival. Our difficulty in juggling multiple arrivals and departures should not have caused problems with your stay. We certainly hope that you were given a tote bag with contents that describe our facility and the surrounding areas, and that we'll have a chance to earn a better review on your next visit.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great location and facilities, we loved Bassett's island. We will return to KYC again soon.

Kingmans is a destination with the rustic charm of Cape Cod and the venerable Chart Room restaurant. People are kind and considerate and they strive for excellence which they achieved. Restrooms and showers are impeccable. A great stay and we would come back again.

Stay for one night was excellent. Was a great stop to make while making our way to Cuddyhunk the next day. The Chart Room for dinner was excellent we had 10 for dinner and the service was excellent! Would definitely stay at Kingman again and hope to get back that way next year!!

Bathroom facilities were great. Staff was very rude. They were not friendly at all. They all seemed to be unhappy with there jobs.

Marina Response:
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at Kingman Yacht Center - and quite surprised because our staff is praised in most all other reviews. We take customer care very seriously, and hope that you'll give us a chance to improve your experience here.

by johnenniss on Aug 20, 2017

The place is great- the only reason it's missing the fifth star is the docks are too crowded with moored boats for a large boat (46'x25' Cat) to maneuver without anxiety. For example, the fuel dock is accessible only from the north as the south side was blocked by 3 moored boats preventing a simple drive through. Add a strong westerly wind, limited wiggle-room, and you're in for a nail-biter. Fortunately, there is a fine bar on-site where you get to choose the right meds for the moment. This is a well-run, first-class operation; they even send a greeting email the day before to confirm your reservation which includes a complete sitemap of the mooring field and slip layout so you know exactly where to go when they provide your assignment.

Spectacular floating docks, cheerful and helpful staff (and cute), clean well-maintained everything, busy restaurant.


by psmith on Aug 09, 2017

Had a nice dock space on the outer edge. Very convenient to the Chart House.


by daysailj on Aug 07, 2017

Lovely harbor, and outstanding, smart launch drivers


by bill.littell on Aug 06, 2017

The staff is great. The bathroom/showers are a put off. The showers lack a dedicated stall which results in water all over the floor. Also the floors are "raw" concrete.


by dbbentley on Aug 02, 2017

We enjoyed our third visit at Kingman Marine and extended our stay by several days. Deb had the filter I needed for my Onan and the Chart Room is always a good stop. Uber was helpful (no rental company had an available car). Only drawback was some frustration in contacting someone to address my wife's questions, unfortunately she did not recall having been there before with this boat.


by margozink on Jul 29, 2017

Three days on mooring and really enjoyed our first time stay in Red Brook Harbor. Great, free launch service and marvelous restaurant, The Chart Room. Nice hiking trail and walk to local breakfast restaurant. Great time

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay! We're very happy that you enjoyed yourselves and hope to see you again soon.

Great place in it self! No stores or restaurants in walking distance. One restaurant in marina, no breakfast and a little pricey. Food is very good!

Marina Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Wanted you to know that we now serve coffee and other light breakfast fare to help get you started in the morning. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

by wrm on Jul 24, 2017

Friendly, capable staff. It's a busy place, but after winding our way around through a confusing channel, it was a very pleasant stay. If this is your first time in, I'd recommend entering near high tide.

Marina Response:
Thank you for sharing your experience at Kingman Yacht Center. Both entry channels have a controlling depth of at least 6' at MLW and tide range is about 4'. We're very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon!

Very pleasant stay. Staff is very pleasant and helpful. Free launch service. Free pump-out at Fuel Dock. Excellent dock-side restaurant. Bourne Pump-out (not related to Kingman Marina) is supposed to be available for boat side pump out...but was unresponsive for the 2 days we were there. They never answered out calls on VHF 9. Fortunately, the free fuel dock pump out was available. Would not hesitate to return.

Marina Response:
We're glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope to welcome you back soon!
