Reviews for Crocker's Boatyard, Inc.
Decent services, well protected, 2015-08-19
Captain: , Jersey City, NJ (70)

Stayed there one night. Courteous staff; there is a pool, and wifi. Only downside is the noise of the train at night. Transient docking fee is reasonable but they also charge a 'utility' fee of $10 per night.



Sailfest 2014, 2014-07-14
Captain: , Brookhaven, NY (366)

Stayed at Crockers Sailfest 2014 weekend. Also had our own O'Day owner rOnDAYvous with most boats at Crockers. Nice place, clean throughout, and very close to downtown and Sailfest activities. Fireworks were awesome! Sat on our boats at the dock and really enjoyed them. Pricey for the weekend, but I feel it was worth it. One staffer there could use an attitude tweak, but I wouldn't avoid a return because of it.

No wakes, quiet at nite. Nice pool.



Worst Attitude, 2014-06-25
Captain: , Charleston SC (10)

After 25 years or cruising the east coast, bahamas, carribean I can truley say from top to bottom this marina has the worst attitude of any I have ever been to. We will never be back.



Best place in New London for the Fireworks Show, 2012-01-04
Captain: , NEW LONDON (36)

Very friendly staff, Nice Floating docks, Very Nice Pool and deck, Clean heads and shower all tile, All one needs in one spot. Firework barges right in front of you.



A VERY WELL PROTECTED MARINA, 2011-09-09
Captain: , Oriental, NC (1148)

This marina is a full service one that has the capacity to haulout and make repairs. They have a well stocked Marine Hardware Store and seem to be knowledgeable in all thing boating. The heads and showers are clean. There is a laundry. It is an expensive marina @ $2.25 per ft under 40' and $3.50 for 40' and over. Use it for heavy weather and repairs otherwise find some place else that's cheaper. It is very well maintained with good floating docks.



Nice Marina, 2011-09-06
Captain: , Marco Island, FL (1135)

The marina itself is just fine. Has a pool, facilities are clean, folks here are nice. The Amtrack line goes right past the marina. The trains run all night and can get noisy. Also, the town is a little sketchy. We went to the Mohegan Sun casino and took a cab home since we didn't want to take a bus back to the marina at night...



A well protected marina., 2009-08-09
Captain: , Chesapeake Bay, MD (311)

Decent floating docks, nice hands to help tie up, well stocked marine supply store on site. Close to town walk or taxi. There is a train that runs next door and blows the horn a couple times a night.. Not a bad place for a short term stop.



Crocker's Boatyard, 2007-11-12
Captain: , Newtown, CT (245)

I kept my boat here for one year and was totally screwed by this boatyard. They refused to communicate with me when I sold my boat and only used one weeks worth of annual dockage. I would never use them again. Not nice people!



Protected Marina, 2007-07-09
Captain: , Great Island, Maine (323)

Well supplied marina with friendly, helpful customers and staff. Limited space for transients, but the marina is very well protected.



Safe cove, 2007-06-08
