Attentive, courteous dock assistance; great WiFi, spacious and super clean restroom/showers; flat calm waters. This dock abuts many great restaurants- one of the best stops you can make.

Felt like I was in a prison. Would only give one key fob to a boat. Crazy rule!

Close to some shopping and restaurants. Boat owners and staff very nice. One fob per boat made it difficult for us to do things separately. Even though there was a slip empty next to the boat we were traveling with they would not accommodate a move and the one fob we got did not work with the gate of the dock our friends were on.

We had an excellent experience here. The marina staff were very friendly, facilities were clean, and there are TON of amenities right off the marina including grocery, restaurants/bars, etc. We will absolutely stay here again!

Great location, nice wide slips and fairways. Good bars/restaurants nearby. Super convenient that they have a fuel dock right there as well. Staff were extremely helpful, and the canvas "welcome bag" was a very nice gesture!

Arrived at around 7pm, was trying to reach marina via cell phone and VHF for almost two hours prior, no response. No one called and gave me information about which slip to go to, had to dock on a fuel dock. Update: Hingham Shipyard Marina returned docking fee in full.
Marina Response:
Hello Vitaly, My apologies for our miscommunication. Someone should have been available to assist you with your slip assignment and key fob to our facilities. I have credited your account for the inconvenience. We hope you keep us in mind for a future visit. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions. Thank you again for your interest in Hingham Shipyard Marinas, Cherie Rudzinsky, Marina Manager

Great location - nice choice of restaurants and some outdoor entertainment while we were there made for a great trip. The facilities are spotless!

Excellent service by dock master, assisted with tie up and introduction to marina with a welcome bag. Head and showers first rate, tons of stores and restaurants within the marina itself. Watch the charts and buoys carefully on the way in, lots of turns, narrow, but plenty water. Mind the ferries going in and out.

We recently stayed 2 nights at Hingham Shipyard and we liked it a lot. The concrete floating docks were in like-new condition, everything was spotless, the heads & showers were very nice, modern and clean, and the "pod" system to get onto each dock provides good security. There's no pool, which we knew going in, but what kept me from giving them 5 stars is that there was no dock staff that we ever saw. There wasn't much current running when we arrived (although there is a significant tidal current a times) and my wife was able to get off the boat easily enough to get some lines over, but if there had been a wind and/or current situation or if the docks had been lower to the water we would have had a problem. The launch driver stopped by as soon as we were secured and checked us in, gave us a goody bag, etc., but I was very surprised at the lack of dock assistance. That said, once we got settled we had a great weekend, with shops and restaurants within a couple of hundred yards of the marina.

The staff were very responsive and helpful; we showed up and there was a boat in the spot designated for our stay and the staff quickly came out, identified the boat, and switched us up to another slip. Facilities are modern with newer bathrooms and showers. There are good restaurants, grocery for provisioning, and a pharmacy; all within a short walking distance to the marina.

Short notice trip for the evening to Hingham. We booked with Carol over the phone. All very friendly and efficient. Assigned a T head for our 56ft Azimut. We arrived and called on Ch.9 for some help docking. The dockmaster arrived with a welcome bag of goodies and a key fob for the secure gate and helped us with lines. Dinner at the brewery that evening and brunch at Trident the following morning were both within 100 yrds of the boat. My other half found an exercise class before brunch and we stocked up at the local Whole Foods type super market and Trader Joes. An exceptional experience with great facilities, easy access and terrific service. Met some regulars on the dock who gave us some drinks then helped us with our lines the next morning. We will be back.

Very unfriendly marina and disorganized. We were absolutely made to "check-in" at the gas dock before we were told our slip assignment. This meant picking a side to put out the lines and fenders on. Of course after we docked and received our assignment, we were then told our slip required the lines and fenders to be on the other side. We were assigned the work dock, which had old wood docks with nail heads sticking out ( ouch on the toes). Their was insufficient power available on this work dock, even though we told them our needs beforehand, including the day before when we received a call from the marina confirming our arrival. The work dock did not have any lockable gate, which apparently was the main reason to check in at the gas dock beforehand to get a "gate key fob". When we complained to the dockmaster, he said that they usually don't have transient slips and that we were lucky to get a spot. This left me thinking that this marina is somewhat confused and very unfriendly. Luckily the surrounding area ( a former shipyard turned into restaurants and shopping) was nice. I would not stay at this marina again.
