Great dock crew! Right there to help unload, dock and arrange for a mooring.

Exceptional. They put me on dock since the close moorings were taken and I had a dinner off the boat with friends.

The staff and service could not have been better. Extremely nice people. Had some mechanical work done due to engine problem. Andy, the mechanic, replaced a bad starter that was in an impossible place to service. In the past it took two mechanics a few hours. Andy was on top of it and completed the work in less time than in the past by some very good mechanics. Overall, a great experience and couldn’t be any happier with their service and attention.

A lovely spot on Casco Bay. Very prompt launch service to get you to and from your mooring. Great and convenient stop-over location.

Superb!!! A lovely facility, everything needed is provided there. Launch service to bring you to and from moorings was top notch, the yard services are very comprehensive and efficient. Hats off to staff and management for a great stay, both on the hard and once launched.

This was a wonderful place to stop. The crew there could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Everyone made us feel at home. They have a great little shop, very accessible fuel dock and great restaurant and bar all within minutes of the mooring field. We can't wait to go back!!!👍😀

Because of boat engine problems, we could not come for the stay. I called a week ahead of time to concel the reservation. I asked if I could get a credit for the deposit for coming another time but was refused.

It was a very busy afternoon with lots of boats coming in with many requests. Handy Boat services handles this very well and promptly got everyone to their moorings. This was our first visit so they guided us with a work boat to our mooring and made sure the pendant was clear for us to pick up. Very good service.

Helpful staff getting on/off the main dock; nice hot and clean showers (2) and bathrooms; two sets of washers & dryers, $1.50 each and change machine. Docks have fuel, water & Pumpout. You can use their water taxi for getting to & from the shore. Would stay again!

Great friendly service.

by HARRY V. - Verified user on Sep 25, 2022
Very professional and friendly operation. My only suggestion for improvement is to have better transportation available. Services, such as grocery store is just a bit too far to walk, particularly coming back. There are plenty of dock-hands available. Perhaps the could pick-up customers from nearby stores. Lyft or Uber is not available.

We tucked into Handy Boat last week due to heavy swells and higher winds than we are comfortable cruising in a 90 year old power cruiser. Very comfortable mooring. Not even the busy launches waked us. Marina and store staff incredibly friendly and helpful. Facilities are clean, and laundry doesn’t cost the usual arm and leg. The Dockside Grill inside or patio dining overlooks a HUGE mooring field and Casco Bay Islands. Highly recommend the food and service! We also needed help trouble-shooting a pinhole oil leak on our vintage 6-71 diesel engine. The service team was immediately responsive snd helpful. As we make our way between Marion, MA and Southwest Harbor in the future, we’ll make a point of picking up a mooring at Handy Boat!
