I have kept my boat at Constitution Marina since 2019. It is a special place. The best thing about it is the community. It feels like a real neighborhood because of the large share of year-round liveaboards. The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed, fun, as well as safe. You never have to worry about your boat while you’re away. What’s more, the community is especially generous. If you have a problem, or want advice, you can be sure to find someone will gladly help you out. I’ve lost count of how many times a neighbor has dropped everything to assist me in big and small ways when I didn’t even ask. It’s a diverse and inclusive scene and people like to mix; you’ll see impromptu parties on the docks all the time in the summer, and the marina organizes social events as well. As for boats, it’s a nice mix of sail and power, including many unique vessels. I find it to be a perfect location in Boston Harbor: USS Constitution is our venerable neighbor; it’s conveniently walkable, with close by shopping and dining right there in Charlestown, and in 15 minutes walking you can be in the North End, where you’ll find the North Station rail transit hub, TDI Garden, and much else. The marina connects by foot path to a lovely landscaped park along the Charles River, which you can follow as far as the Museum of Science. The marina building has first-rate amenities, including four hotel-quality private bathrooms with showers, ample pay laundry machines that accept all forms of payment, a big deck with a pool, grills, and shaded seating. There’s a pumpout boat that comes around on request. Seasonal contract holders get a pass to park in a dedicated marina lot. Many excellent marine services professionals are available to work in the marina and since it does not have a boat yard, working with outside contractors is hassle-free and they are welcome. The docks are gated and accessed by electronic key fob. There is a Marriott Hotel right on top of the marina which is often convenient.

They were terrific. Everyone was kind and helpful. The bathrooms were clean and nice. The laundry is great and reasonably priced. The newly renovated pool is terrific! It’s like an extended Marina family. Overall we love it here and will miss our Marina family over the winter!

Excellent as usual. Although we arrived very late, we were met at the slip and helped to tie up. We got our key fob and helpful guidance about restaurants, etc. in the area. This really is a superior facility.

Another great stay. Excellent facilities and their knowledgeable friendly crew keep us coming back. This is THE place to stop when transiting the Boston Harbor area. It’s an easy walk to the North End for the best Italian food and bakery after a cooling dip in the Marina’s pool, so get there early! Enjoy views of Boston and tour historic Charlestown. There is too much to do in one stop which is why we keep returning!

What a great marina in the heart of Historical Charlestown, Boston. Sebastian and his team are professional, knowledgeable, welcoming and friendly. The marina is spotlessly clean - we used the washing machines which looked brand new. There's a Whole Foods a 10 minute walk away and easy access to all of Boston. If you have a dog there's a great dog park and large green grassy area a few minutes walk away.

So so would be my review. Really crammed in next to a rather dilapidated boat that was poorly tied up at the way end of the Marina away from all the people we were cruising with. Had to wait while boats that called in after us were placed.

We had a great weekend there! Staff was very accommodating, facilities are nice, pool is so much fun for the kids (and adults) - we had friends in town with us and they stayed at the Residence Inn next door, so had the nice outdoor pool at Constitution and an indoor pool at Residence Inn we could use. Our 4 kids had a ball.

Mixed review. These days a 3 star is viewed as negative, but in this case middle of the road (grade C).
Dockhands - B - pleasant and helpful
Dockhands skill - B - some trainees, but good effort. Good with hookups and pump out.
Office staff - C - pleasant, didn’t offer much advice even upon asking.
Facilities - D - functional, but underwhelming. Docks are old, splintered and rickety, pool was under renovation so not open.
Location - B - Charlestown is great, easy walk to North End and TD Garden
Neighbors on docks - A - pleasant people, some living on boats. All friendly and helpful with advice and social.
So mixed review, great location for purpose, but not planning to return.
Adam, thank you for your review. We take all reviews very seriously and endeavor to learn from each and every one. I took the liberty to share your review with our staff at our regular Monday meeting. It met with "mixed reviews" as you might imagine. Your grading system was helpful and led to some lively discussion from which we all learned a lot. I personally would like to have heard more about your interaction with our "pleasant", but unwilling to "offer much advice", office staff. Perhaps if you have time you could call me directly or email me at [email protected]
to add a little context. I must take exception to your "facilities" grade. Granted our pool was under construction, but we just completed a major rebuild of our clubhouse, and our laundry and shower facilities are among the best in marina world and always receive rave reviews. Our docks are well maintained and being replaced over the next few years. In fact the dock you were on was just replaced last year, and has the same ipe decking and enhanced steel framing that we used to replace most of our outer docks with over the past few years. Granted the remainder of D dock where you found yourself has not yet been replaced, but it is on schedule for new state of the art docks. The pool will be open this weekend, I hope you will try us again. I think you will find it to be to your liking.
by Ben C. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2023
Can't beat the location. Pool was closed which was a bummer. Docks were a little rough but everyone was friendly.
Thanks for the review Ben. Having the only pool in town is a mixed blessing - our contractor has run into multiple problems since work commenced last winter, but it looks like it should be open soon. Our docks are in the process of being replaced - if you had been on G or E dock you would have noticed our new ipe floating docks. Thanks again, hope to see you again.
by Joseph R. - Verified user on Jul 12, 2023
They didn't advertise that their pool was closed and it was 90° and they don't open till 9am so there is no help getting a push off.
We are sorry that the pool project that started last winter has interrupted our summer, our contractor ran into multiple problems with weather, supply chain issues, etc. this past winter and spring that kept pushing the end date out. We are proud to be the only marina in Boston with a pool, and have been assured that it will be ready soon. (By the way, there is a municipal Olympic size pool a few blocks from us if you are looking for the exercise.)
We would have been very happy to give you a hand leaving the dock before we opened in the morning if you had let us know. In fact our asst. dockmaster lives on his boat just twenty feet from where you were docked. We are fortunate to have staff living at the marina year-round and take pride in assisting boaters as they come and go at all times - it is not unusual for our staff to be assisting boaters at 3 o'clock in the morning as long as we have proper notice. Hopefully you will come back again soon.

What a gem! Right in the heart of Boston Harbor. We were surprised to catch the turning around of the USS Constitution as we were coming into the marina. Dock hands and staff were helpful and friendly. Transient dock easily accessed. Restrooms and laundry very clean. Bring your credit card or LaundryConnection app — no quarters needed for these new machines. Easy walk to Whole Foods through Charlestown’s Bunker Hill neighborhoods. Enchanting! Bridge construction going on and commercial boats passing nearby posed no noise or wake discomfort. We would have stayed longer, but a weather window invited us to continue our passage north. Looking forward to a longer return visit.

We had a great 2 night stay Thursday-Saturday with our family of 4 (including 2 children). Dock hands were extremely helpful with lines and pump out. The pool was a great bonus for the kids after walking around the city. The location can’t be beat so close to a lot of Boston attractions (we walked to the Science Museum, North End, carousel by the aquarium, etc). Neighboring boats were very friendly and we can’t say enough nice things about all the staff we came into contact with. We will definitely be back.

First they told me port side tie up but it was starboard. Being solo, it matters. Then over the course of the next 3 days and nights, my boat changed slips on 4 separate occasions. 2 of which I wasn’t present for and I’m pretty sure they dinged my hull in the process.
Very snarky staff as well. I was snapped at and given attitude for just about everything. Once was when I was asking for wifi, which does not actually exist. The main office told me to go across the street to the hotel lobby. The only working wifi was inside the office but they made it clear they didn’t want me sitting there quietly on my phone. And on one occasion, I was returning from a day trip with friends and I called in asking for assistance at my slip because I’m still working on my docking skills. The one guy working there the weekend gave some attitude when I told him which specific slip was mine and all he could respond with was “yeah you’ve been here, you know where it is.” Well I get to my slip to find another boat in it. The guy working is visibly confused on the docks running back and forth, he’s climbing into the boat looking for god knows what before he runs back to the main office to figure it out. I’m doing circles in front of the marine for 25 min, avoiding the traffic from the locks before he gets me ANOTHER slip. Fun.
2 stars for great location

We really liked Constitution Marina. Professional and friendly at a great location. They selected a berth well suited to the size and maneuvering capabilities of our boat and were ready with 3 crew at the dock when we arrived in high winds. These guys get it. You could tell by the way the dock master was handling and training the crew that they are serious about providing great service. Great facility and easy walking to the North End.

Constitution Wharf is a world class, first class operation. Conveniently located near all the historical and practical places you want, the marina has the first class service and amenities you need. I’ve been to marinas all over the world and Constitution has the nicest bathrooms, herb gardens, floral gardens, grille spaces and picnic gazebo I’ve ever seen. Sebatian and his team are hospitable and attentive with service and kindness. Do yourself and your First Mate a favor and stop for a week with the Constitution Marina community. You will enjoy the experience.
Be sure to check out the historical Constitution US warship next door. It’s an operating military ship /museum open to the public. Fascinating…

It's a good location with Whole Foods, Starbucks, Walgreens, Ace Hardware and multiple restaurants all just up the street. Very easy walking distance. The bathrooms and laundry are really nice. Laundry machines conveniently accept credit cards. Our slip was next to the pool and bbq grills. It can be noisy and the smoke from the grills blew into the open hatches of our boat. For a sailboat it was tricky to dock where they put us because a power boat was sticking out from the corner. Difficult both coming and going. Also be prepared for noise from the bridge construction.

A47 super protected from harbor swell, rock-n-roll, surge. Bill the dock master I think is a live aboard in the Marina and super on top of everything. Young dock attendants helpful & working hard to clean crap out of the water, bring carts back to gates, etc. Our location was REALLY tight/hard for us to get in/out but Bill's team helped make it easier. Quick walk across locks gets you great restaurants, a microbrewery, and supermarket. Our first stay was on Rowes wharf were the surge drove us crazy and the slip was super expensive, this location SO much better! Easy walk to the Navy shipyard/Constitution marina if that interests you....

Electric service is good but the dock planks in some areas need replacing. We can walk to Boston’s North End and great Italian restaurants only one mile away. Constitution Marina has deep water, a bit crowded but we have been inside with our 70’ trawler, well sheltered, and very convenient. We recommend Constitution Marina and look forward to our next visit.

Great location for restaurants and venues. Needs TLC ! No pool towels, ice machine one quarter mile away from boat, no one to help us with lines when we departed. Last year we received a packet with on-going events and historic information. Disappointing
Thank you for being a returning guest and for making sure your feedback reaches us. We’re always listening and working to improve our services.
I’m sorry that the pool was not open during the mid-September heat spell we had that week. After a busy summer we were doing some maintenance on the pool filter system to ensure water quality. I remember talking with you when you visited the office and the conversation we had about the restaurants. I’m sorry you didn’t get the VIP discount card till after you ate at some of the restaurants on the card. As you may recall, when I processed your Boat US discount through DOCKWA, I added an additional discount in consideration of savings you may have earned using the card.
Thank you again for your feedback and I hope you will come visit us again soon!

Awesome time. With 100’s of fish floating due to the algae bloom in the Charles the staff was quick to manage the overflow of floating fish. Great clean bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Front desk was very accommodating and friendly. We will be back

Can't say enough about how responsive Howie, Sebastian, and the entire staff have been. From finding a way for us to stay an extra day to providing a booster to overcome Boston electrical "brownout " issues, these folks can't do enough. Definitely coming back!

Great location for restaurants and bars. It was great to have a pool to cool off from the heat and to cook on their grills. The bathrooms are very clean. WE were a group of eight and this is our go to place.

Great location, very friendly staff, and wonderful amenities. Constitution Marina is a fantastic option to enjoy historic Charlestown and downtown Boston. I will absolutely be returning to this marina on my next visit to Boston.

Great marina! Location is perfect for everything / short walk to North End, Fanuel Hall, Downtown Crossing, and beautiful harbor walk! Staff very welcoming, and helpful with all our need! I would highly recommend this marina for short or long term stays. They even have a diver Brian who was amazing bottom cleaned our boat and put on new zinc went above and beyond!

The location is prime and the price is reasonable, even over the 4th of July holiday while I was there. Far more important than that, however, is how accommodating the staff was. They helped me with too many little things to list here, so I’ll just say that if I could give 6 starts I would!

Great protected marina in very good location. Affordable and everyone was pleasant and helpful.

I recently spent 2 nights here on the outer dock and can recommend this marina. It has a great location in Charlestown but a short walk to downtown. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Bathroom facilities were very good but hanging by the pool in the late afternoon after a day walking downtown was better!

A very good berth with no roll.
by Normand F. - Verified user on Sep 16, 2018
Everytime I left for a couple of hours they gave my dock away. Double booking slips. Very annoying to return to dock with another boat docked there. Musical chairs moving me around to worst docks.
Thank you for staying with us for a second time this summer. I'm sorry to hear that your recent experience was not as pleasant as your first. Our transient dock is very busy, especially during the Labor Day holiday week. During your stay we did host several large vessels over 60ft that would only fit on the outside face dock or the long face dock and we needed to move your boat farther down the face dock. I remember that the outside face dock is your preference because you make frequent charter trips that return after 8pm, when the marina is closed, and docking your 40ft vessel single-handed is difficult, however that space was not available during your stay. This is the reason we opened up the D-dock face dock on the main fairway for you. The walk to the gate is farther than the transient dock, but for single-handed docking, this was the best space available.

Great destination! Beautiful clean bathroom facilities. We haven't stayed here in a few years. Wondering why we took so long going back. Looking forward to our next stay
Thanks for staying with us and please come back again soon!

Constitution Marina never disappoints. Great dock help tying up, beautiful rest rooms/showers; such a great neighborhood; pool for kids; deck with grills and picnic tables under cover; so close to North Station and the North End. And Dockwa makes making a reservation so quick and easy. This time, unexpected bad weather kept residents on their slips Friday, and the slip reserved for our friends was not available. They drove to tje marina to meet us instead, returned home on Friday evening and sailed in to a slip on Saturday. CM made the best for us under the circumstances. Thank you, Sebastian.
Thanks for your visit! There are also parks right near by for kids and dogs too!

Good location. Dock help available on arrival. Had us packed in with about 2' clearance to the boat astern. Windy the morning we left so I went to the office at 9am to ask for a hand with lines, no one around. Called but no response. WiFi just about non-existent. Not quite living up to the service they claim.
I'm happy you came to stay with us, but sorry to hear that you did not have the experience you were hoping for. Please email me directly: [email protected]
. I'd love to speak with you to hear more about your stay so we may improve our services where we can. I'm sorry our WiFi system was not functioning well. We have been working with the provider to try and improve the reception. It has proven difficult to get a clear signal when it is impeded by tall boats or masts, even with antennas placed on each dock. If you have any trouble with the wifi, please contact the office and we'll get you in touch with our wifi provider BEACON wireless to help resolve the issue.

Staff members were great, we had clean power, enjoyed the pool, and nice, private showers. Wooden docks and planking are showing age and some of the slips are a quarter-mile walk to the office/showers/pool. The location for exploring Boston was pretty good.

We live Constitution Marina.!!! The staff is so welcoming and accommodating. They will do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable, not to mention that you can’t beat the location. Close to all of the best restaurants and entertainment in Boston but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely return :).
Thanks for staying with us! I hope you can come back soon because fall boating and cooler weather is just ahead =).

Excellent crew and staff, clean onsite facilities including pool and gorgeous deck with grills (I counted 4 clean grills) and an awesome location convenient to North End and Charlestown. Anyone with a hint of interest in history will enjoy walking around Charlestown and seeing the sites such as Bunker Hill Monument and the historic naval yard and touring the USS Constitution. We just had a great time with our teenage boys and even stayed an extra night which they accommodated on short notice. Thanks Constitution Marina.. we will certainly be back.

Excellent marina. Friendly helpful people. Fantastic location. Clean showers and laundry. Fun being in Charlestown.
by Don B. - Verified user on Aug 04, 2018
Friendly, busy, marina. PACKED with vessels of all sorts. Maneuver cautiously‼️ Bathhouse adequate but long walk for us on D dock. No fuel as we learn only 2 fuel docks in all of Boston harbor‼️
Thank you for visiting us! Yes, we are a very busy marina and we love to have guests with all size boats for one night or even a month long stay. Our bathhouse, laundry facilities, and poolside grills are all here for you to enjoy. While we do not have a fuel dock on site, there is Harbor Fuels, in the middle of Boston Harbor as you come in, and another, Mystic Fuel Dock, farther down in the navy yard, just under the Tobin bridge. We hope to see you again soon!

We had a 2 day reservation. Half way in we were asked to relocate from our assigned slip to another slip because the "owner" of the slip we were in was returning prematurely. This was very inconvenient, and when it was time to move we had to track down the dock boys to assist with the move. Very unsatisfactory.
Thank you for staying with us in Boston. We're sorry that you were inconvenienced by having to move during your stay. We try to plan ahead to avoid moves, but it sometimes happens that the regular slip holder has to return early. I apologize for the wait while we were assisting several vessels who were arriving at the same time we had planned to move your slip. We hope to see you again.

Meh- The people (Sebastian - Dock Master) were GREAT. The slips are extremely tight. I had to move twice due to bean size. Finally ended up on T Dock. The location is EXCELLENT - we saw U2 in concert at TD Garden. So for TD Garden events this Marina is the BOMB!! The facilities are good (bathrooms clean - laundry). NO CABLE. NO Restaurant on site. One very close walking. Whole foods a easy walk. NO BAR on site. I'm lazy so I want food and drinks on sight. BUT A great stay and good people. My issues are minor and petty at best. Recommend!
Thank you for staying with us. I know you had a concert to go to but next time you stay with us I recommend exploring our neighborhood bars right near by. Blackmoor Bar and Kitchen right around the corner has an extensive beer and wine menu. You'll likely find our Marina Neighbors there or at Iron sides which is right across the intersection from our Marina. The North End-our little Italy- is a 5 minute walk across the bridge and you can eat great Italian food and pastries. Dino's Restaurant on the corner of Prince and Salem Streets is a small family owned place you can order plated pasta or yummy sub sandwiches that are big enough to share- though I rarely do. Across the street from that is another one of my favorites, Bova's Bakery which is open 24 hours so you could even go there after a show for snacks.
I hope to see you again soon!

Excellent marina. We were met by dock hands Aiden and John who very professionally assisted us in backing into our assigned slip.
The location is convenient to all things Boston........especially excellent dining in the North End and Charlestown.
Restrooms are among the cleanest we have ever seen.
Not our first visit and definitely will not be our last!

I had a reservation for a week that was made two weeks in advance with all specs on my boat including the length and width. They placed me in a slip that was way too small and we ended up scraping the boat adjacent to us and there was no place to tie our bow. We were extending at least 10 feet in front of all other boats on our dock. The dock hands did not seem to know what was going on.
The locals said that this was not unusual.
Great location to downtown is the only thing I can say was good about it.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your stay was not as enjoyable as it could be. The July 4th holiday is one of the busiest times of the year and we take care to have a full crew on to assist boaters when they arrive. I apologize if there seemed to be confusion about your slip assignment on your arrival day of July 3rd. I was the manager on the dock that welcomed you along with two other dock hands that assisted in docking your vessel. I agree that the slip you were in was a tight fit and I even commended you that day on a fine job docking. Although you did ask if there was another slip available, the other vessels that arrived with your party at the same time were of similar length and wide beam. Unfortunately this was one of only two similar sized slips that could accommodate your vessel. We want to make your stay as pleasant as possible and I hope that you will stay with us again so that we may provide you with a more positive experience. We value your comments and are always striving to improve our services.
