No onshore facilities. The launch was timely and friendly.

We moor here and love it. Family-run, friendly, and very attentive. Clean bathrooms and showers. They're a first-rate boatyard, and I have had many friends who've had great work done there. Plus... City Island is amazing!

Nice people, full service boatyard. Great place to stop before or after running the East River.

Great easy mooring before trip down east river

They were very helpful. The moorings are protected on three sides and once the launch drop us at the dock, City Island is a few blocks with great restaurants. It is a great starting point to travel into the Sound or down into NYC.

There’s not much to this marina. The moorings are solid but the field is easily rolled by powerboat wakes and the wind. It did quiet down at night. The showers and heads are adequate.
The best thing about Barron’s is the launch service. They responded promptly to phone calls (the marina doesn’t monitor any VHF channels). The launch operator came out as I approached the mooring field to circle around my assigned mooring which made it easy to find. The launch operator on duty was friendly and helpful and made the stay pleasant.

Boatyard staff were very responsive during Dockwa reservation process. Approach to mooring field was easy. Marina staff were very helpful as we approached - we spoke with them on the phone and then they circled our mooring ball in the launch and ensured the bridle was okay. Very calm mooring with winds from the west - would also be calm with winds from east or north. Only exposed from the south. Launch service was good - just had to call using cell phones. Boatyard did not have a lot of amenities, but that was known when we made our reservation and was fine with us. We did not use showers, but they were available. We would definitely return!
