Reviews for Riverside Marina
Don't even think about it..., 2016-06-26
Captain: , Titusville (10)

There are actually 2 Riversides; the good one, run by a lady named Sally, and the Bad One, run by a crooked scammer named Tim Concannon. I made the mistake of buying an engine from this con artist which turned out to be a complete piece of junk. This guy will promise you the moon and never delivers. Don't believe a word from Tim. I had my boat here for 18 months and it seemed like forever; primitive facilities, water undrinkable and power supplied by a 400 foot string of Romex (!) that you are responsible for. Bathrooms are choked with mosquitoes and there are never any paper towels or soap. Truly a place "where boats go to die." Deal with Sally and you should be alright; deal with Tim at your own risk. I was very happy to finally leave this place.

Cheap and Dirty, a Working Yard, 2016-04-11
Captain: , Vero Beach, FL (907)

Cheap by local standards. Location within the yard can have a big effect on the experience. If you are near the entrance in dry weather, you get most of the traffic, which raises clouds of dust. We hauled out there for a few winter months, at a monthly cost less than a mooring in Vero. Haul and launch were efficient. A yard policy that sanding, painting etc must be contained was stated when we went in. They placed us in front of the paint shed, where workers sporadically sanded all the topsides paint off two large commercial boats in a row, with no attempt to control the dust other than a fan to keep it off the worker: green dust everywhere, inside and out. We asked at the office if they could move us, and the sanding stopped.
Soon after, a bottom stripping/sanding job got going next to us. They made an effort, setting up tenting, exhaust fan and a filter system, which occasionally clogged up. This added gray bottom paint dust to the green. We asked again to be moved and Sally, the owner said "I'll see what I can do." A week or so later, we finally gave up and launched, going elsewhere to finish our project, clean the boat and paint the bottom.
Our experience seemed to be strongly affected by where we were placed in the yard. It would almost certainly have been much different in the quieter areas toward the back.

Worked with dad in yards like this, 2015-05-25
Captain: , Neversink NY (260)

Hauled out here for quick bottom job and clean up yard worked well. Hauled us a day later than appointment but after that all went smooth. My cat is 1' narrower than there well but staff lined us in and out very effeciently. We do all our own work and staff was very accomadating when we needed. Place is tight, dusty with lots of people around had no theft and we left our tools out and trailer unlocked during the nights. Brought back thoughts of good times learning about boats with dad.

worked well for us, 2015-04-05
Captain: , Lakeside, Montana (442)

We stored our boat there for 9 months and had the bottom painted. It worked well for us. Rates are great compared to other yards, but the storage area is sand and dirt. they can tie boats down for storm protection. Dealing with them by email was occasionally hit and miss. the staff is friendly but busy.

Very crowded working yard, 2015-01-13
Captain: , Wilmington DE (792)

As others said, this is a working yard and my rating is for just that. I'm having some fiberglass and paint work done by an outside contractor . Charges are $35/day with electric (48' Hatteras MY). I noted a couple of boats with liveaboards, but they too may be in for repairs.

One caution, the bulkhead is exposed to the river currents and the flow can be deceptively strong. Ditto for north or south winds.

No Frills Yard, but Good Place to DIY, 2015-01-05
Captain: , bahia honda state park (70)

Spent 3 months on the hard at Riverside Marina doing much repair/upgrades to my sailboat. They hauled my Leopard 38' catamaran and let me work on it with no interference. This is a working marina and as such offers little in the way of amenities, but has a good staff that can help you with any issues or source outside assistance. I had the outsides of my hull regelcoated and did a lot of the repair/prep myself. They can do custom welding on site. Although the yard looks a little sketchy I left tools and supplies outside most of time with no issues. There were a couple of other long time boaters there with their boats and I was able to borrow needed tools from them with no issues. Most everyone there seemed to get along well. The staff works hard to get the work done. Sally the owner was very helpful and is easy going as long as you treat her with respect due. For DIY work I would go,there again.

Good folks, 2014-05-31
Captain: , Middle River, MD (90)

28 May 2014 I used the yard's travelift to haul and place my trimaran in its trailer and they arraigned a crane for de-rigging. Very helpful DIY yard. Worth the cost savings and time to sail from Biscayne Bay to Ft Pierce.

No frills here. There is a 50 ton travelift with a crew who knows what they are doing. Pay attention to your expenses as they will add up quick. Good ole fashioned DIY yard with pleanty of support. Get the work done quick and get out.

Affordable, but you get what you pay for, 2009-09-26
Captain: , Stuart Florida (21)

Stay on the south side as you enter and exit for those of us with a deeper draft. This is definitly the cheapest marina in the area, but you get what you pay for if you leave it out it will dissapear. There is spotty internet access from the office that doesnt travel very far but it works as long as they pay it. Bathrooms are rough I'd say about european hostel quality, they aren't filthy, but privacy is almost non existant . Overlooking these downfalls this is a good marina to work on your boat as the people here are full of knowledge, and nobody gets mad when you start doing repairs
