Reviews for Nu Plaza Yacht Club
Wonderful Place, Nice People, 2016-07-17
Captain: , Branson, MO (50)

John Mills, Seascape

Great Place, dockage a real bargain, but fuel prices were high. Very friendly people and nice facilities including laundry right at the dock.

Good stop without frills, 2016-06-24
Captain: , Rock Harbor Marina (30)

Stopped for fuel and spent the night.
Cooked our dinner at their party dock, gas grill and basic amenities. Being behind an island, we were well protected from tow wakes. They moved us back on the gasdock for the night, well away from the pumps.
Best to approach from downstream end of the island, the channel from the upstream end is very narrow and unmarked.

Basic marina but rustic. Diesel fuel pump is very slow. It was not yet in season but the man manning the marina was very helpful and even loaned us his car to provision at local Walmart. If you purchase at least 100 gal of fuel, you can spend the night free. Good electric and secure tieup.

Friendly staff and all you need, 2013-04-26
Captain: , Louisville KY (387)

Maybe not the most contemporary facility but everything the boater needs to moor overnight including showers and pumpout.

Awesome People and Marina, 2013-01-23
Captain: , new orleans,la. (206)

Stopped in this marina on the way to New Orleans from Louisville after buying a boat and hit a submerged log and bent my prop. Jim was absolutely amazing and went out of his way to help us. This place is great and I recommend it whole heartedly! It's hard to find this kind of hospitality these days so please pay this place a visit and I guaranty you will leave with a smile on your face. Also don't let the backwoods look throw you off!

Good dockage at a reasonable price, 2012-10-03
Captain: , Aquia Harbour, VA (1177)

Clean marina with good decking and secure cleats. Friendly, helpful staff and marina patrons. Not close to town. Need transportation which may be offered to you. Very reasonable rate which included electric.

Great Folks, Secure Strategic Full Service Marina out of channel, 2012-10-02
Captain: , Gulf Breeze, Fl (6909)

Last Marina going south for a long way. Thankfully it is a good one. Re-up water, fuel etc if needed. Along side Floating docks with good cleats.
These are really nice folks that can't seem to do enough for you. Solid power, pump out diesel and gas. Many offers to run you to town if supplies needed. $15 a night for our 37' boat power included. Softened Water for tanks at the fuel dock! The first I've ever experienced.

Good Service Helpful Staff, 2011-05-17
Captain: , St. Louis, MO (778)

The folks here were fantastic. We needed a ride to the airport in Evansville to get home for the week and they took care of us. The manager even ran to his home to get a pigtail for our electric connection. Self service fuel. No covered slips, but off the main channel.

Captain: , Evansville Indiana (46)

Small town marina, nice folks, multiple pump out stations, no covered slips. Area around marina very anchor friendly if you don't need to plug into electricity.

Good off channel site., 2010-09-20
