Enjoyed a phenomenal visit and stay this past weekend! Chuck, Carter and the team do an amazing job at a beautiful location in Newport Harbor. Great team, amenities and views. (And yes, the fresh baked cookies upon arrival are a nice touch).

Really helpful staff, great location in center of town yet surprisingly quiet, and the cookies they give you upon arrival are delicious.

Dockhands/staff were great and friendly! We had a great weekend. Beautiful marina, we will definitely come back ☺ Thank you! P.S. the fresh baked cookies in the office at check-in totally swayed our review 😉

Great place to stay with a friendly group to help you with anything during your stay. Fresh baked cookies and coffee everyday.

Newport Yachting Center is our favorite Marina to visit. All of the staff are very friendly and professional. The Dockmasters, Luke and Carter, are so accommodating and helpful. Each time we visit there is always someone on the dock to welcome us and assist with tying up. Their restrooms are very clean. They have a rooftop deck to relax on and watch the sun set. They are centrally located to great restaurants and bars. On many a weekend evening there is usually a wedding taking place which is always enjoyable to watch or listen to the music. Would definitely recommend NYC if visiting Newport.

Great marina, I would give it 5 stars but the Trafic in front of the marina rocks the boats a lot during the day. Harbormaster is definitely not doing his jobs. Some of the other marina docks are position boat E-W so boat don’t rock as much.

Floating dockss are long and designed for very large yachts. We were right on the outside on the harbor with great views but subject to wake, although for the most part, it was very calm. A 115 foot yacht bowthrusted in behind us. Our friends in a 36 sail boat were stuck well inside behind sky scaper yachts with no view and no air. The facility is right next to Bowens wharf so a short walk from the center of the action. There is nothing at the marina but clean bathrooms/showers, fuel dock/pumpout and a small area to sit on a raised deck. Staff are very nice and competent with the lines.

This was one of our best stops we made on this trip. The staff and marina focused on every little detail to insure we had a great stay. The marina is just about centered to all of the shops. stores, and restaurants. Definitely a marina to stay at when in Newport

Spontaneous visit to Newport, first time to Newport Yachting Center and couldn't be more pleased! Great staff, facilities, location....Clean, newer, even a cookie and a koozy at check-in...can't beat that!!

I got to say I have given some bad reviews of some of the marinas I've been too, the most recent in Montauk. However Newport Yachting center is really at the top of there game. It's super clean and the staff are on point at all times. In an effort to avoid harsh weather we decided we would come in a day early. I expected at best to get a Mooring or drop anchor in Harbor. To my surprise when I called ahead the marina was able to accommodate us without an issue at the dock. They even gave us the option of leaving a day early if we didn't want to pay for the extra day. When we arrived into the harbor we were able to communicate with plenty of time by radio. The dock master new exactly where we were to dock and which side so we can prepare fenders and lines ahead of time for a Port side tie up. We easily passed the other boats already tied up with around 10 feet on each side of our boat clearance. The dock hands also climbed on adjacent boats with massive round fenders just in case I lost control. I did not.... The dock hands not only tied the boat using a double spring line for our 51 foot boat but also setup the 50 Amp electric and water. Half way thru our stay we needed an emergency pump out and as luck would have it they pumped out the boat free of charge at the gas dock since it was too late at night for the pump out boat to come. We stayed a total of 6 nights and I am looking forward to the next time we come back. BTW the marina was dog friendly however the nearest grass is a couple minute walk to America's Cup Ave. We also Rented a car for while we stayed. Directly outside the marina we were able to park for $20 per night. This made going to the store or on the mansion tours + Cliff walk super convenient.

Caters to very large yachts. Not really looking for smaller (>40ft) sailboat. Extremely expensive. Large mega yacht shut down the fuel dock. Dock corners have no bumpers, and have exposed metal couplings. Dock hands were immature and uncoordinated, causing confusion.

This is our third stay at the Newport Yachting Center. We love the location, spotless bathrooms and the roof deck to watch the sun set over the harbor.
