Basic facility. Very good people who were very good at meeting our boating needs. Harbor is choppy with NE winds.

The launch driver was very friendly and very accommodating. The location was very nice, but with a strong SW wind and opposite direction tide, the mooring kept bumping the boat all night.

This is not our first stay at The Clark Boat Yard. The company run by the family and all people there are very helpful and friendly. The location and views are perfect,

Nice location and convenient launch service but significant turbulence from normal tide and waves as well as boat traffic.

Clark Boat yard is my new favorite spot in Jamestown. Friendly staff, calm, quiet harbor, price makes a huge difference, we will be back!
Marina Response:
Thank you Kristen!

Launch drivers were extremely attentive and helpful. Mooring field can get rough and uncomfortable when there is a SE wind and outgoing current swirling. Should be much better with SW breeze.
Marina Response:
Thank you Robert, come visit us again sometime.....Sarah Clark

Beautiful spot across from Newport. Newport skyline and Jamestown bridge lit up like a Christmas tree. Bathrooms and shower are rustic but charming. Walk to town.

Our boats awlgrip paint was damaged by their mooring equipment. Owners of the yard have not answered my email complaint which provided detailed photos and description of the incident. Please contact me regarding this issue. M Myette

Clarks has become my go to stop in the Newport area. The mooring is sheltered and the price is right. Staff are always helpful in person or on the radio.

The best places on Conanicut. The only locally owned place left. Sandwiches between Sage Harbor’s Jamestown Boat Yard and the shit show the Toilet Paper Group has made of Conanicut Marina is this gem of a boat yard with moorings. The launch is run by pleasant and competent operators (occasionally even Clarks). The facilities are minimal yet adequate and well maintained. The location is incredible. If you cannot get in here, try Safe Harbor JBY. The Toilet Paper Group is best avoided.

Affordable and convenient location for an overnight near Newport. We moored here on our trip south and appreciated the launch service so we could explore Jamestown, which would have been a long trip for our dinghy.

Great place. Friendly and kind. Prompt launch service. Classic boat yard, family owned and they treat you like family.

Nice location, friendly staff and a classic boat yard. Some rolling from the river. About a mile walk into town but pleasant.

Clark Boat Yard is family owned. The location provides the most beautiful views on the island! Customer service is outstanding.

A gem in Narragansett Bay. I’ve rented a mooring here several times when busy Newport Harbor can’t accommodate and I’ve loved it every time. Beautiful views of Newport, Clingstone house on the rock and the east passage. Staff are all very friendly and welcoming. If I could add a 6th star I would!!

by Rebecca L. - Verified user on Dec 29, 2019
Charmed! Original, family operated, low-key vibe. Sweeping views of lower Narragansett Bay, nice and helpful staff, and quiet beach. A little rolly during a north breeze, but otherwise well protected from the usual southwest conditions.
Marina Response:
Thank you. Come visit us again this summer! The Clark Family

by Peter G. - Verified user on Sep 22, 2019
Friendly and helpful staff, Jamestown is a great destination, however, the Anchorage is quite exposed to the traffic and currents, which make it a "rolly" stay on board.

by Jeffery R. - Verified user on Aug 11, 2019
The Mooring field is in a terrible location, especially when there is a South East Wind. We left immediately in our 43’ Trawler.

by John L. - Verified user on Jul 29, 2019
we had a very nice stay as usual. CBY staff are friendly and always eager to help. One of our new favorite locations.

by chris c. - Verified user on Jul 14, 2019
place was great people were very nice and quick

by Susan M. - Verified user on Jul 05, 2019
We tried to stop here every year around the 4th of July and we are never disappointed. Everyone is very nice and helpful. The yard is very low key and not in the center of town, but the walk is welcome after being on a sailboat for days! Given its scale, there is only one shower and one head so if they are very busy you might have to get in line. But the wait is usually in a shady spot with a nice breeze and a chance to read or catch up on emails.

by Jeff G. - Verified user on Jul 04, 2019
Great views to Newport. Always a pleasure staying here. Recommended

by Jamie L. - Verified user on Aug 03, 2018
Great mooring, plenty of swing for a beamy catamaran. Great service too, launch picked up and dropped off friends. Very nice people, definitely recommend instead of Newport's busy harbor.

by Elizabeth M. on Mar 20, 2012
Project management, budget management, communications with me and the results of workmanship to help restore my Midnight Lace were superb. They greatly exceeded my expectations.
