Reviews for Severn River Marina
Emergency Stop, 2016-04-18
Captain: , King George (107)

We were headed south against a 30 to 40 knot south wind and could not make way at all. We ducked in here and stayed over night. The bath house was okay and heated. The stay was a little rocky as the wind buffeded us all night.

We had the boat hauled and the hull compounded and waxed. The boat was hauled and back in the water exactly when we were told it would be. They did an excellend job at a very competitive price.

Best marina we visited from Florida to Maryland, 2015-07-28
Captain: , Delaware (90)

Price wise=great. But the best is all employees with smile and competancies. If you have a mechanic problem go there they are very honest. They work with you and assist you to order parts to do it your self or they can perform a quality job for a reasonable price. It is a quiet marina very well protected from all wind directions. We are spending 4 months before heading back south. Thanks to Mike and his team! ps if you want ot sell your boat talk to Mike about "Flat Fee"

Nice convenient stop, 2015-07-13

Easy stop off Chesapeake. Good depths. Able to face dock. Fixed docks. Laundry facility with new front load machines and honor system payment

Outstanding Service!, 2014-06-26
Captain: , Gloucester (10)

Mark and I want to thank Dana, Mike, Shawn and Jack for the most competent service we have ever received at any marina. Your whole staff is so very excellent. Mark got the boat home under all the electric lines and our wonderful neighbors helped him situate the trailer in the perfect place out back, nestled cozily between 2 pines and 2 apple trees. Seeing her out there is a bittersweet sight for us but very prudent, but we had 15 years of fabulous sailing experience and have many, many photos of everything.

Please thank everyone who assisted, you are very fortunate to have the caliber of folks working for you. HURRAH!!! God bless each and every one of you.

Excellent Service Again, 2013-10-31
Captain: , Yorktown, VA (972)

We were at Severn the end of August through October 22 provisioning for the winter, travelling, and having maintenance and upgrades on the boat. We had posted in April about the excellent service and work.
They did not disappoint again. This marina is very scenic, peaceful, with friendly boaters and an incredible staff. We cannot praise them enough for the work they have done for us and all done with a positive, pleasant attitude.
Dana and Liz in the store will make your stay enjoyable and make you feel welcomed and like family. Mike and Shawn, owners/managers, are very customer service oriented; making sure the work is complete and correct. There is not anything that Kevin, Jack, and Shawn cannot fix or figure out. Work is complete, timely, and correct. Todd is an amazing painter and craftsman. We had several dings, scratches, etc. repaired on our Awl Grip Paint. Knowing the location of these spots, we cannot find them. We observed his work on speed and fishing boats with fancy paint jobs, trawlers like ours, and sailboats. He is certainly a gifted, talented craftsman. If you need work done, no matter if it is large or small, have Todd do those repairs.
There travel lift can pull large boats. We were hauled, bottom painted, rudder shafts re- packed, shift cable replaced, line cutters repaired, water maker installed, and repairs and upgrades to our electronics.
This is a great place to be hauled, have work done and stay on the boat or leave it in a very safe environment. Newport News airport is 30 minutes away and Richmond is 1 hours. In addition, Yorktown, Williamsburg, and Jamestown are within minutes with free bus service running between the three locations.
The marina is upgrading; adding new floating docks and have plans for a new ship%u2019s store, pool, etc. The slip rates are very reasonable and the ship%u2019s store is great. They also receive any parts needed the next day.

Our 48 Hatteras LRC was hauled on April 1 with customer service has been A+ since our initial contact.
They have a positive, can-do attitude and are willing to discuss the problems, troubleshoot or talk through solutions.
Shawn Gordon coordinated our service and along with Shawn, Jack, Kevin, and all of the staff we are extremely pleased with the results.
We had 2 coats of bottom paint, holding tank repair, and upgraded electronics. Even though there were issues with new Garmin products, their continued troubleshooting, with positive attitudes dedication and hard work to get the issues resolved. They went far beyond expectations of a normal service yards.
We highly recommend anyone needing service or hauling. The marina is quite pleasant with friendly people and a lovely view. It is very quiet and we enjoyed our several weeks there.
They are in the process of many upgrades to the marina including floating docks, new ship%u2019s store, and a pool.

Good service, friendly staff, 2013-07-19
Captain: , East Falmouth, MA (1583)

I bought my boat thru this marina. They were very helpful with the survey, hauling, and accomodating my needs. They allowed me to leave the boat there for a very reasonable rate. The rest rooms were clean, our slip was good but we were so busy provisioning we didn't have much of an opportunity to explore. A car is a must here as the closest stores are about 5 miles away. I don't think we could have had a better experience.

Incredible Service Yard, 2013-06-19
Captain: , Virginia Beach (10)

Just a quick note to say that I am most appreciative of the cheerful, competent and timely service you gave us under trying circumstances for us. THANK YOU one and all. You definitely have the an incredible Service Team!

Great marina in a country setting. Staff very friendly and helpful. No frills but good water , new floating docks and very clean head and showers! Loaner car is currently out of service and was not given a time frame for it being in service.

Captain: , Pelican Marina, Elizabeth City, NC (131)

As usual while moving down the Chesapeake's western shore, this facility was about 7 miles off the bay. It's docks are pilings where we needed help from a dinghy to secure the stern. Facilities are nice, folks are helpful, and there's a courtesy car because no shopping is close by.

Tranquillity on a budget! UPDATE: new management, 2011-11-13
Captain: , East Haddam, CT (315)

Update: We stayed again this past summer for a couple of months after the management change here. We were pleasantly surprised. Mike and the staff are extremely helpful and are really trying to make the place better. They have even updated the water system (R/O).

Previous post:
Dan, Richard and the team at Servern River Marina are all great. They know their stuff and are as or more competative on prices than any around.
This isnt a place with a lot of frills, in fact, if you are looking for a posh place with a pool look elswhere. But, if you are looking for a place with great, knowledgable staff, basic but clean facilities, and a beautuiful quiet setting, then this is it!
If we are in the area again we will definitiely be staying here again.

Beautiful Setting, 2011-10-24
Captain: , Smith Mountain Lake, VA (266)

The Severn River is a beautiful, remote spot and I stayed at the marina when sailing around Mobjack Bay this fall. Nice staff and facilities for transients (but bathrooms could use a good cleaning). The marina appears to have an extensive maintenance business as noted by other raters. Several sailors live at the marina.
