The Shipyard is a major yachting facility for a very good reason. Everyone is skilled, pleasant and helpful. The facilities are spacious and well run. Highly recommend.

Crew there was great; very pleasant and helpful!!! bathroom facilities were less than expected...shared public, not marina men's and lady's...a bummer. docks and such were great. great protected location. hope to go again sometime this year! .... well, we went again for the 4th and again it was outstanding! 3 boats shared a finger dock (comfortably) which was unexpected and appreciated! Watched sunset from the marina, awesome. Breakfast at Belle's, awesome! can't wait to go back...

Dock and dock hands were good. Restaurant was good also. Slip was too small.. Person at the front desk did not know much and we had to ask about everything to get answers.. (Bathrooms, internet, showers). Terrible smell.. Internet was terrible.

dock staff was excellent, guard at entrance very nice and helpful and the food at Belle's was awesome. I would order from boat and prepay and take out since lines were long for tables. Great time and nice location!

We came in for a night. Marina staff were Rock Stars! I wish I caught their names but they brought us in promptly and were very friendly. Another two staff members even brought us a gift bag which was great because I was in need of a coozie. Marina was nice as well. Only issue was this older gentleman taking pictures of us and our friends children In front of the store front. At one point even hiding behind a bush w a camera taking pics while we were on the dock. He was staying on a sail boat there. When we told the staff he immediately confronted the other guest to stop takin pics which we appreciated. A+ job to the staff.

Our stay last weekend to Newport Shipyard was great break from 3 months at home. The yard was extremely professional during these C 19 times were all living in. Owen was waiting when we arrived, guided us to our assigned slip and and assisted with docking. The yard location is perfect for any stay in Newport. From its location it’s a short walk to anywhere in town.

We came into Newport Shipyard for a weekend stay recently. Great help finding our slip. Upon arrival we were helped to get secured to the dock, and all powered up. Facilities are top notch, and couldn’t ask for better experience. The fact they cater to larger vessels shows in their professional approach to everything they do! The dock was nice and quiet at night, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Dock hands were fantastic, bathrooms/showers were immaculate Free beer friday on the main dock A bit pricey, but you are in Newport Our 4th visit there, will be back

Always friendly, polite and has the most interesting boats to look at!

Not enough can be said about the hard work that every member of the NSY Team puts into making the Shipyard the yachting hub it is today. Great facilities, world class service department and ship store, great environment for families and crew, Belle's Cafe has great food, and the close location to Downtown and Broadway makes this place a must go, by land or by sea!

by manleyjw on Aug 11, 2018

Status: Open

Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard is working diligently and methodically under the guidelines and laws of our local and federal government during the COVID-19 scenario. We realize many boats will start their journeys north for the summer and our marina is open for business and we look forward to welcoming many yachts to Newport in the coming days and weeks. Our team has been working remotely and will continue to do so until it is safe for everyone to re-convene in our office. We encourage yachts needing dockage to contact our Dock Office via email ([email protected]) and we will respond in a timely manner with availability, rates, approach instructions, and we will do our best to answer questions related to: quarantine rules, provisioning, local available amenities, medical access, and more. We are remaining positive and hopeful that the actions taken by the Governor of RI and our residents to proactively minimize the spread of COVID-19 will pay dividends in the weeks and months ahead. We look forward to welcoming you to Newport and please contact us with any questions you may have.
