Tucker's Wharf is located perfectly at the center of Marblehead's Old Town which makes it a charming and delightful destination. The Landfall is great for dinner while the Driftwood is a local breakfast favorite. And you can't miss enjoying a spirit at Maddy's Sail Loft. There are plenty of shops and services to amuse and help. Mark and his team are gracious, welcoming, and helpful Harbormasters.
Harbormaster staff were great. Men's shower was filthy. Main issue is a 300% rate increase since the last active captain review with no advertised notice until getting to the dockwa reservation. More a reflection of what I have seen with dockwa and the use of it to justify ridiculous mooring rentals. I will use this site in the future to figure out which harbors to avoid and will gratefully thank the ones that have kept rate increases modest and do not require payment with my thumbs. Some of us still sail to distance ourselves from forced internet interaction.
Surprised and happy to get a virtually short notice reservation. Phone contact was pleasant and upbeat. On arrival, three professional staff made the approach and dockage on a very windy day stress free....made me look good at the helm. The docks are very stable and clean. Lots of interesting harbor boat traffic but the no wake enforcement makes it very comfortable even at busy times. We were right in the heart of historic Marblehead. Need I say more. Will put Marblehead on our cruising itinerary every year!
They were very helpful allowing me To move my boat to a mooring in a more protected location.
Very Helpful harbormaster and staff. Excellent location and adequate shoreside facilities.
Great little harbor (jam packed with boats on mooring balls).
Friendly staff and great facilities, including washer and dryer free to use. Only drawback is the price at $5/foot.
Courteous, pleasant, efficient. We came in after hours and found everything set up as promised. Easy access to amenities. Friendly , informative folks as we found our way to recommended watering holes. All good.
Wonderful stay in Marblehead. The Harbormaster and team set us up with a fantastic mooring that was very comfortable and so close to everything that we didn't even put the motor on our dinghy! We look forward to coming back again!
Great service from arrival to departure and we got to stay in a beautiful harbor. Will be back very soon.
The Harbormaster was great, very accommodating. It was a little inconvenient not to have a launch service, or showers. Fortunately we where able to finagle something with the help of the harbormaster. We had a nice stay.
Arrived late on a Friday night and had no trouble coming in and finding our mooring. Location is tucked away deep in the harbor, so well protected and calm water. Good spacing between moorings.
Tucker's Wharf does not have slips but linear floating docks, 5 guest moorings in our inner harbor and 2 at the mouth. We have 30/50 amp power and water on our docks. Shower and laundry facilities and a small galley providing a coffee pod system, toaster oven and microwave. We offer launch service through the Boston Yacht Club for our inner harbor moorings only for an additional $25.00 per night. Dinghy tie-up for our guests is included in the basic price for a mooring.
Located a short walk to Marblehead's "Old Town" historical sites, restaurants, grocery store, package store, boat supply and many other unique shops.
Marblehead is one of the most picturesque harbors in the country and is known as the "Sailing Capital of the World" and the "Birthplace of the American Navy".
Mooring reservations will automatically apply the $25 launch service fee that can be removed upon the boater's request.
Please do not allow your dinghies to hang from the stern of your vessel. They must be rafted securely to one side.
