Reviews for Lewisetta Marina
very nice marina and village, 2017-07-29
Captain: , Bucks Harbor, Maine (10)

Helen and Mark are on the ball and answer the phone. The diesel price is competitive and every effort was made to accommodate myself my trawler and most importantly my canine companion. The anchorage is simple and quiet. The tiny village is peaceful and a great place to wander with a terrific little church. The dinghy dock is also simple. Helen particularly was very kind.

Friendly, interesting, 2016-04-30
Captain: , Norfolk, VA (160)

Stopped for fuel and ice. Helen, one of the owners, apologized for not being able to help tie up our boat, but the marina had their own dock lines so there was no problem tying up. The store had a good supply of items including things made by Helen. Helen's cheerfulness itself made this stop worthwhile.

Outstanding owners, 2015-08-31

I came in early Mar and had a sick crewmember. The staff waited for me to arrive, helped me get squared away and went out of their way to get supplies needed for my crewmember. I wish I could've stayed slightly longer and got to meet them. We put out the following day with ease.

Great Work , 2014-08-29
Captain: , Yeocomico River (336)

I have had Mark do a short haul for a pressure wash and cleaning of the running gear twice now, last August and two weeks ago. Both times were great experiences. He was ready when we arrived and we pulled directly into the travel lift well and were on the hard in about 5 min. He did an excellent job of scraping and pressure washing the boat. The amount of time and effort was well worth the reasonable price charged.

A Fine Marina for Boat Work, 2014-05-19
Captain: , Williamstown, MA (335)

We just were launched back in the water at Lewisetta Marina and we could not be happier. Our Hunter 35.5 needed new bottom paint and we wanted to switch to Trinadad SR after hearing very good things about this hard bottom paint. We also needed to raise our water line. Mark and his crew were efficent, thorough and did a wonderful job. They hauled our boat immediately upon our arrival and had the bottom completely powerwashed an hour after getting us in the field. They blocked us using a bow stand and 4 stands on each side of the boat. The nine stands were chained together while the keel sat on two heavy duty wood blocks. We continued to live on our boat during the time the work was being completed and we never felt uncomfortable even during a windy rain storm with 25+ knots of wind nor were we made to feel our living abaord got in the way of any of the work. The second day of our stay the crew came and sanded off the ablative paint right down to our barrier coat and then got the first of two coats of Trinadad SR on the bottom. The thrid day was a wash. It poured all day! The fourth day the second coat was applied and the followind day the stand patches and keel were double coated. In addition, we replaced the prop zinc, a thru-hull cap, did an oil change, refilled our propane tanks and waxed the entire hull. There is a small general store and gift shop on site which is definately worth a visit.
Through out our stay both Helen and Mark could not have been more helpful and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Everyone we met was friendly, took time to chat and gave us great local knowledge on the whole area known as the Northern Neck. One last thing, the price for all this work was very reasonable. When we need haul-out maintenance, this is where we will come. This is a wonderful gem of a working boat yard and marina with friendly, knowledgeble people.

Great Yard, 2013-10-09
Captain: , Quantico, VA (261)

If you have a vessel 40' or less this is an excellent yard with a great staff. They have a small store and offer gas and diesel. Tricky approach but an honest, reasonable and trustworthy owner.

Good Honest People, 2011-04-27
Captain: , Washington DC (152)

Lewisetta Marina is basically a storage facility, boat yard, and launch for power boats but it does offer fuel, showers, and a few uncovered slips for sail boats. It has a small store on site with limited supplies. The water is shallow in the marina. We have a 4.4 draft and were resting on the bottom at low tide when in the slip.

We had our boat off loaded here after trucking it up from Florida. We kept it in their yard for about 3 months before launching a few weeks ago. The charges were more than reasonable. Mark and Helen were very helpful and easy going. There were no issues with crab pots when leaving.

good work for haulout or winter storage, 2010-05-02
Captain: , callao, va (41)

helen and mark offer good work for a fair price. Sail or power. SMall store on site. Easy access

Local User, 2008-10-29
Captain: , Cod Creek, Potomac River (27)

Not as difficult as MOXIE says. Owners are very hospitable and will bend over backwards to help you. They live on site so are available just about 24x7. Not much to do here although they have a few things in the "store". A travel lift is available, along with a good hard surface ramp. The area for the lift and ramp is very sheltered.

Local knowledge a must, 2008-09-05
Captain: , Alexandria VA (59)

This is a place where local knowledge is helpful. The fuel dock
while convenient to the mouth of the river is very exposed.
We found it difficult to dock with the heavy wake from channel traffic mixing with waves off the Potomac.
Another concern is the many crab pots and oyster bed markers.
They are everywhere crowding and within in the main channels,
in the fairways and even closely surrounding the fuel dock. So go in here only with great visibility and calm seas.
There are limited facilities here and it is not inviting to the transient boater.
