Reviews for Frank Hall Boatyard
Sea Tiger - Leopard 48 Catamaran - Cruising - Peter Kent, 2017-07-29
Captain: , Cruising (51)

Great Marina. Very pretty area. The staff is professional and could not be more helpful. Navigation is straight forward. Beautiful anchorages just downriver at Napatree. Many fun restaurants in Westerly and Watch Hill. All a quick Uber ride away. WIFI is working very well from the mooring ball I am currently on in middle of river. Fuel dock located 300 meters downstream. A great stop do not pass it up.

Friendly and low-key, 2015-07-25
Captain: , Bristol, Rhode Island (2761)

We were a flotilla of 16 sailboats in our association's summer cruise. Got friendly service from staff.
One boat (6-ft draft) ran aground in north end of mooring field; was moved to dockside. Another boat (5-ft draft) rented a mooring (also at north end of mooring field) and woke up sideways, careened by a falling tide. In both cases the boatyard staff quickly fixed the situation.

I have docked and winter stored my boat here for several years and the owners and staff are all good people. All service work has been completed above my expectations. All the other boaters are friendly.

Great marina, beautiful location, 2011-05-18
Captain: , Boston (621)

I bought my sailboat through the brokerage at this marina and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Brigid and John are wonderful people, the boat yard staff are helpful, skilled, and attentive, and the location is beautiful. Only downside is that river/tidal currents run strong and perpendicular to slips at times, but you'll figure it out.

Well-equipped marina with CNG, 2011-01-14
Captain: , Mystic, CT (973)

This old school marina is readily accessible by boat or dinghy from the Napatree anchorage and Watch Hill and has a decent chandlery on site. This is one of the few local marinas that still handles CNG cylinders. The staff is friendly and helpful. You need to mind the speed limit, however, as this area is actively patrolled by the Westerly, RI, police.
