not the best place to keep your boat. but it is a cheap.

This place is a dump! If there were a way to give NEGATIVE stars, I would be down around -5 or so. There are no shore side services, the rats and stray cats run the shore. The docks are build with hardware store parts and the service is a joke. The only thing going for this place is the price at mid 80's per foot it's the only thing the owner has done right. (went from $65 to $85 in 3 years though.) This is a very "fend for yourself" marina.

Stay at your own risk.

This funky but friendly marina between Sunset Marina and the Centerboard Yacht Club is easily overlooked. There is no sign and it appears to be part of Sunset. It is primarily seasonal slip rentals but vacant slips are made available to transients and short term renters. Rates have always been the lowest in the area.

The operation is very casual, no radio monitoring, office attended only during business hours. Boats have tied up for weeks without being noticed. The ice machine was broken for all of 2006. The free sewage pump out is one of the Portland waterfront’s best kept secrets. There is no fuel but power and water are available at most slips.

The site is an old shipyard with a huge derelict railway that should be on the register of historic places. The general atmosphere and landscaping shoreside is reminiscent of an abandoned Antarctic whaling station. It’s worth a stop just for the hoot of finding such a place in the middle of Maine’s largest city.

The excellent restaurant of the Sunset Marina is an easy walk next door and a full service supermarket is a pleasant but longish walk away, about the maximum distance that you would want to carry a couple bags of supplies.

There are a few spaces for boats in the 40 – 60 foot range but I wouldn’t plan on it unless you call ahead.

The one attempt at amenities are dock boys who drive golf carts back and forth. The docks are some of the longest in the area (the position shown on the chart really is the end of the dock) so these can be appreciated.

There is a large parking lot. If you are meeting crew and need to leave a car for a week or two, it would be hard to beat. The airport is a 15 minute cab ride away.

A northeast wind drives right into this marina over a long fetch so it is not a place to leave a boat unattended on one of the outer docks. The inside slips are well protected, however. The innermost slips almost dry out at low tide so check before accepting one if your boat does not ground out gracefully.
