Okay, they apparently fired their dock master and it was Labor Day, but no one was there. No one. So, we tied up briefly but because we had no idea where we were supposed to be we felt like trespassers and moved to the town dock. Still trying to get a refund. They are hard to communicate with. I get it’s COVID but we have been waiting for a response and refund for two weeks now.

The mooring was so far away from the dock to get into Belfast, approximately 1/2 mile out. It was also quite a way past the No Wake Zone, so boats were flying past us rocking the boat like crazy.

Helpful staff. Interesting town. Grocery and good restaurants nearby. Clean showers.

Call ahead and ask if your on the inner harbor or the outside edge. Our mooring was along the channel but past the 5 mph markers so we got rocked steadily by boat traffic at high speed and it was a very long dinghy ride in.

Jonathan at Front Street Marina was an outstanding dock master and was more than happy to accommodate my needs. He is also a wealth of knowledge of large wooden sailing vessels and their history. A most enjoyable stay!

Great Experience. Helpful, knowledgeable staff. Cute town in walking distance. Courtesy car for provisioning and it is located at a significant shipyard. Very interesting. Easy in and out.

We had an excellent stay at FSS, with friendly and helpful staff and a convenient location to town. I would give it 5 stars except for the most expensive load of laundry I have ever done in a coin-op. Dryers took 2.5 cycles @ $2.25 each, so over $7 for not a huge load. The lint screen was clean, so it’s something else that needs adjusting. We will be back, but will plan better for laundry.

Great customer service. Great location. Walking distance to downtown and restaurants. Restrooms, showers, laundry. Special shout out to Mark Tubbs for helping us get a great spot to tie up to and Brandon in the woodworking area for taking extra special care of us. We needed a few small pieces of teak to repair a damaged spot in our boat and Brandon gave them to us and asked us just to pay it forward. All the people are extremely nice and helpful. The boats that they are working on are amazing. A very well run yard.

We were without an anchor (they installed a new windlass) a dinghy (cradle they installed failed) and had a bad cutlass bearing - due to services provided at Front Street Shipyard. These are life-safety issue that left us hostage at their dock for 3 weeks, then the A team took over and we were underway in 3 days. They have an A team and a not quite B team, guess which team did the majority of our work. Last year we spent 1 day at a dock for fuel, this year we missed the annual Nova Scotia trip with the Nordhavn group due to their negligence.
If your not there every day to verify the job, your more likely going to be chasing leaks, repairing odd items like direction pads for a windlass or replacing small parts that are misplaced or damaged. They left 3 batteries connected over winter.
Of course after we paid the full price they only seemed to charge 1/2 price for repairing this fiasco. Considering each window caulked took them 2 hours and the ones I did of the same size only took me 1 hour each... that breaks down to paying a f#@k ton of money.
Hope you have a better experience than ours, fair winds and following seas.

Very accommodating. Excellent services. Availability of loaner car for trips to local grocery for reprovisioning is a great plus to offer users of the marina.

Nice protected port, decent quality docks, good facilities. Easy walk to downtown shops and good restaurants. Staff was generally helpful and friendly. Will stay here again.

This was my second stay. It's a full service shipyard with helpful and friendly staff. I've also had work done there and found all to be high quality.

It was nice to be informed ahead of time that we would be on a float instead of a mooring. We appreciate the use of the truck for provisions. Sorry we missed the tour of the shipyard.
by rogerf on Aug 09, 2017
Staff was great, facilities clean, location to town and pubs/dining is great. A lot of changes to this location since our last stay in Belfast many years ago.

Very nice mooring field and superior shipyard. Very helpful mechanic sorted out an alternator issue. Great laundry, showers, "yachtspersons" facility. Very convenient to Town.
