A mooring is a mooring is a mooring but Elizabeth is a pro and I appreciate how she went out of her way to make the stay go smoothly. I look forward to a return visit as I make my way back south

Olivia womanning the dock was great! NBPT is such a fantastic downtown to visit by boat, easy access, great boater visitors center, amazingly clean facilities - perhaps the best public boater facilities on the east coast.

The dock hands were there when we arrive and the staff was always helpful. Everything was clean. The only negative I would say is there was no wifi. The harbormaster's office was very helpful and accommodating when I increased our stay. Newburyport is very fun, lots of restaurants, walking areas and live music. Also lots of parking for guests to come.

Very easy to tie up and great helpful staff

Always an amazing stay here. Very accommodating with friendly staff. Docks are great. Not quite 240v power if you need it. We saw only 220v. Having a 60’ vessel, rarely seen in Newburyport, we were definitely in the spotlight to all the passerbys.

The staff here is very helpful and the facilities are clean. The town is a short walk.

Fantastic! Great facilities, and staff. Downtown is beautiful!

As mentioned in other reviews, the location of this marina is outstanding. It also looks like the restroom facilities are new. They are only open between 7a-7p so we were not able to use them. Also, we had an issue contacting the dockmaster on the radio for docking instructions. The range on her handheld radio is not very far. They put us at the very end of the linear dock and we found out that the current sucks your boat into the small cove at the end of the dock. We adjusted our approach to account for this and had no problems.

Stout mooring easily identifiable and located just off busy town dock. Facilities on shore at the Harbor Master office- showers and laundry- are very nice and clean. Quick access to town and many restaurants and shops from the nearby dinghy dock. Very busy waterway with commercial tour boats and private recreation boats.

Excellent support from the dock masters and clean baths/showers!!

Helpful dock staff. Great location for exploring downtown Newburyport. Marina restrooms are open but need passcode.

by debschradieck on Jun 14, 2021
Great spot in the heart of beautiful downtown Newburyport. The dock person who checked us in was friendly and helpful. She was there to take our lines and check us in upon arrival. You should be comfortable being sociable with passers-by as many will stop and chat about your boat. This is part of the fun of being there! Easy walking distance to many great restaurants and shops.

Harbor master very helpful. Excellent dock and facilities. Call early for pump out boat, it gets busy.

by plominja on Sep 14, 2020
Great location right down town and plenty of room to swing with the current.

by bschanning on Aug 27, 2020
Very friendly and helpful in guiding us to the mooring we reserved. They even called us on VHF to let us know we were approaching the wrong buoy.

by motleycrew on Aug 24, 2020
Always great. Great people and the ones running the docks are so accommodating

by jayfitz64 on Aug 22, 2020
The young lady managing the dock the days we stayed was pleasant and helpful.

by cielo on Aug 21, 2020
Great location and the dock well-maintained with the power. Great town with lots to do

by nickorem on Aug 15, 2020
Docks are new, everything works, staff is helpful, easy walk downtown.

by twinsisters on Aug 04, 2020
Actually we had planned for 6 nights, and ended up adding two more nights to enjoy the area and the comfort of air conditioning during a hot spell. All dock staff so helpful and friendly. Elizabeth helped us out when our son drove to visit from VT and needed safe parking. We stayed here several nights July 2018 with a flotilla of sister PDQs and were delighted to have an opportunity to return.

Very friendly receptionist. Great town.

Very accommodating.

beautiful port! Docks and staff are exceptionally professional and always available to answer any questions. I will definitely be back :)

Beautiful place, the absolute best staff in the business, great location.

by rjw35 on Sep 03, 2019
Great location, super clean (and I mean super clean) bathrooms and showers. Free pumpout, free laundry, water and electric included, and awesome staff. I hate to recommend it because they have limited space and want to make sure I get a spot next time I go! Staff was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable about navigating in and out as the Merrimack river is very challenging. The only downside is that there is no locked gate between the dock and shore, but there is a lot of activity which basically polices the place. Lots of things to walk to and do; steps away from the park and great restaurants.

by waburton on Aug 25, 2019
Clean, well run. Great town.

by tlaw on Aug 19, 2019

Slip was waiting for us along with a helpful dock hand. Docks and power posts are in perfect condition.
Status: Open

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, boater facility (this includes bathrooms, showers, and laundry) will be closed until further notice.
