They did not get five stars because: when I made the reservation initially, I was waitlisted for some of the the nights I wanted. It turned out that the marina was not even half full while I was there. Why is that? It is disappointing that they could not/would not give me the nights I wanted.
Marina Response:
Good Afternoon - At the time of booking, we were carefully monitoring reservations since our staff are still in training and some arriving to the island for the first time. We like to make sure to have enough staff to accommodate the number of reservations/boats inside the marina, and to provide the highest level of service. It looks like we were able to add Friday night for you, so if there is something we missed please let the office know so we can improve your experience next time.

Excellent stay. World class crew helping us dock and prompt pump out service! Extremely pet friendly with a doggie amenity gift upon arrival (leash, toys, snacks, collapsible bowl…). Restrooms and showers seem brand new. The only gripe we can find (if you can believe it), is single-ply TP in the men’s!
Marina Response:
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you another time this year!

The staff at Nantucket Boat Basin are extraordinarily personable and professional. We had anticipated staying three nights, but due to foul weather had to extend our stay. The staff at the Boat Basin were beyond accommodating - going out of their way to ensure we still were able to enjoy our time in Nantucket between providing restaurant and activity recommendations to welcoming our pup with some gifts. We couldn’t recommend the Boat Basin more!
Marina Response:
Thank you so much for your kind review. It's always fun for us to share our favorite parts of Nantucket with our guests. We very much enjoyed having you stay with us and chatting in the office with you and Jagger! We look forward to welcoming you back for your next trip.

Fantastic staff and dock attendants and wonderful marina. We were able to pump out in slip which for us is a major convenience and time saver. Thanks for a terrific stay.
Marina Response:
We appreciate your review! We will be sure to pass along the compliment to our staff. Always happy to provide the free slip-side pump-out service as it contributes to the wellbeing of our harbor. We would love to have you visit again!

Started out another great season with some visits to Nantucket Boat Basin. The crew at the Basin provide the most professional and friendly service every time. They make coming in to a busy harbor/ basin very easy with great communication and can provide many services while staying at the Basin. Thank you John

" For over 40 years we've been visiting the Nantucket Boat Basin as we have travelled the world on the water. During the last 3 years there is a REMARKABLE and SIGNIFICANT improvement in both the services and the design enhancements at what has always been a global destination for thousands every summer. From the reservation system and new communications once reserved all the way to the special handling by the dock attendants and then the really special personal touches like the Saturday afternoon Wine and Cheese on the docks, the NANTUCKET BOAT BASIN makes every effort to engage, comfort and relate to every individual boater that comes there. It is truly a SEVEN (7) Star experience, and this year we noticed many many boaters from further away EXTENDING their stay (If they could retain their much 'in demand' slips) just BECAUSE of how they felt dockside every day. We'll certainly be there at least another 50 years (we hope)." Frank a. Stasiowski, Owner, Hinckley 44 SERENITY.

Jeremiah the electrician is the best! Saved our bacon and marriage! Took the time to diagnose why the shore power kept tripping when we hooked up. Turned out it was our port side outlets. Thank you again!
Marina Response:
We love to hear that our electrician was able to solve the problem! We appreciate the positive feedback. Hope to see you another time this summer.

by Chris M. on Dec 02, 2022
We are lucky enough to spend every summer in Nantucket; when we arrive at Nantucket Boat Basin in June, its like coming home! Everybody is welcoming & has a smile on their face. The facilities are great and they couldn't be more helpful or accommodating. Its so nice to see all familiar faces after so many years- the sign of a well run operation!
Marina Response:
Thank you! So great you are able to come each year - we love that we have return guests like you each summer. We appreciate the positive feedback and hope to meet your expectations again in 2023.
