Reviews for Bannisters Wharf Marina
Excellent location, but $$$, 2017-08-08
Captain: , Propriano, Corsica (20)

We stopped one night (July 7th) here on our way between NYC & Nantucket. Marina is very well located, easy access to all Newport can offer, allthough a bit tight to get in and out. $6.50 / ft. is excessive for the facilities offered ... Staff friendly and helpful.

Very nice marina, 2016-08-17
Captain: , Camden, Maine (100)

VEry tight docks (but so is every other one Newport), but great location and very capable deck crew. Easy access to all that Newport has to offer. We will be back.

Off season deal, 2016-05-30
Captain: , Brooklin, Me. (11)

Stopped here for a break on our trip back to maine and were pleasantly surprised by early, or off season price of 1.50/ ft over Mothers Day weekend. Electric on but no water, great location and staff

Visit by land, 2015-06-23
Captain: , Jacksonville Fl (1550)

I stopped in to inquire about docking there. Was told very short and quick "it's 5.50 per foot, others in the area are up to 7/ft". We decided to skip docking in Newport this trip.

Perfect Stop in Newport, 2014-06-23
Captain: , Poughkeepsie, NY (40)

Great facility with an even better location. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Would definitely reccomend to anyone looking to stay in Newport. Restaraunts and shops are alll right outside your doorstep.

Great Location, 2012-12-02
Captain: , Southport, CT (70)

Great location and very accomodating and helpful. Right in the middle of all the Newport action.

Superb stop, 2012-05-28
Captain: , Erie, Pa. (1896)

Great location, great town, everything you would want in a resort stop. This marina is a good facility and is in the center of everything. Less money than Sag Harbor and better. Was there on 5-27-12.

Best spot in Newport, 2011-12-23
Captain: , Huntington (465)

It is in the center of all the action. Busy place so need to plan in advance.

great location, friendly staff, 2010-08-02
Captain: , Miami, fl (3666)

probably one of the best locations in Newport as it is not as far down Thames St. as other marinas.

staff is very friendly and helpful.

Attentive care, 2009-06-09
Captain: , Fort Lauderdale (228)

Great dock hands, on-site owner, caring staff.
Wonderful place to enjoy the dining and nightlife of Newport

Right in the center of action, 2008-09-27
Captain: , Key Biscayne FL (3169)

We stayed here during a blow. It is right on an active tourist wharf with restaurants and shops. We did not use the showers that were available. Rate was $2.50/ft + 25 for 50 a electric in late september 2008.
