The crowds are gone, and the services remain outstanding.
As always, probably...nah, definitely, the premiere marina in the northeast. friendly, prompt and professional staff. facilities maintained to the highest order....already planning weekends next season. oh...the only negative about this marina is the local charters who seem to delight in STEAMING up the fairways at four am. they know exactly what they're doing and their intention is to be as disruptive to visitors as possible....there is no other explanation for >10kts inside the basin.
Staff was very helpful!!!!
Love it here. Clean bathrooms/showers. Nice staff. We will be back next Summer. Prefer early in season and Sept. Less crowded and better rates.
Nice marina in the middle of the town. I could live with the 7.50 a foot but paying $57.00 per 50A is highway robbery. My boat takes two 50's so $114.00 per night takes all the fun away. Wonder if we could run the generator all night?
Unfortunately I had to camel due to storm. I got a courtesy call to check on our arrival. I hope to go soon and get credit for the reservation i paid for
We had a lovely stay. We were on Straight Wharf which is convenient, but a bit noisy and the showers are far away. Next time, I would prefer to stay on Old South Wharf. The showers are on this wharf and there are no restaurants or ferries arriving -- just quiet stores.
My family and I just returned from a week on Nantucket staying at the Boat Basin. While this was out first stay at the Basin, we have been to the island a number of times. Nantucket as an island never disappoints. Its a great place to visit with beautiful beaches. As for the Boat Basin it is fine as a marina but comes up well short for value. I have been to all the surrounding islands and ports and no one charges 7.50 a foot. This is very high given that the accommodation is just average. The docks a fine, the staff is very nice , the showers, at least on our dock, are just ok. On the plus side, the location is great and the wifi was very strong. Oh, and gas was$5.25 /gal. On my return from Nantucket, I stopped at Martha's Vineyard and paid $3.25, competitive with mainland prices. Being run by the same organization that runs the premium hotels on the island, I can only guess that they are not interested in boaters in the 30-40 ft range and believe owners of large yachts can pay their premium price. Being the only marina on Nantucket with transient docks makes this an issue. Perhaps the town should offer space on their large dock. I plan on visiting the island again but not with out boat. It just is not worth it.
Very nice and protected facility. However, dock attendant was not particularly helpful and skilled
NBB has been a five star destination for as long as I can recall. No so anymore. Maybe it's the change in management or maybe they just decided they didn't need to be so great, being the only game in town.
Don't get me wrong, they are still top notch, just not what they used to be. And that's disappointing to long time customers like us.
Beautiful island terrible marina. After paying so much money for a slip I was put right smack in the middle of all the fishing boats the smell all night and day was horrendous. Bathrooms they are beyond outdated and dirty. Also my power was disconnected for my slip mid night because a fisherman wanted to charge his fishing equipment and all the marina said with out a care was "no worries we won't charge you for the power". Was never helped geting into my slip. Wasn't given the wifi password or map to find the amenities around the marina. I could not wait to just wake up and rush out of that marina. Next time will definitely stay away from NBB.
I'm still a big Dockwa fan (and a big NBB fan), but something went wrong between Dockwa and NBB with this reservation. When I arrived Friday evening and hailed NBB on the VHF, they had no idea about my reservation. NBB did eventually find an email from Dockwa about my reservation, but said they never got whatever confirmation they usually get from Dockwa. Anyway - NBB found a great last minute slip for me and it was a great weekend, but not seamless from the reservation perspective. Also - we didn't get the 'swag' from NBB that they usually give us at checkin with a clean reservation. Thanks.
We just love NBB!! The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. The location is perfect, the grocery store is right there as well as so many places to eat, drink and shop steps away. Looking forward to coming back soon.
The Boat Basin did a great job as always. ACK is always a fun place to visit and The Boat Basin makes it so easy for boaters. Brian T
First-timers at Nantucket Boat Basin, and may give it five stars after we've had time to check out other marinas in the MA/CT/RI waters. Our experience was excellent - helpful guidance on the approach & docking, easy access to power & water, close proximity to public restrooms/showers & cocktail reception on our second day. Friendly staff and incredibly convenient access to the hustle & bustle of the island. We'll be back!
Always 1st class service from the Dock Master to the dock hands. Thanks again!
There is probably no finer marina on the east coast of the US. The docks are an extension of the main street in the town, services are plentiful and nearby and the staff is as welcoming as a 5 star hotel. Sure its expensive, but not as much as Newport, with which it shares the best megayacht viewing in the area. Make reservations easy for key weekends and be sure to save a few nickels for some of the great Nantucket restaurants,
Very expensive and not really worth it IMHO. Better to stay on a mourning if you can. Service is ok. Ridiculous price for electric as well ($50 a day I think for 50a). Bathrooms and showers ok but not great. Generally early/late in season pricing becomes reasonable - recommend staying then - less crowded on island overall too. Great location. Helpful staff.
