Reviews for Shennecossett Yacht Club
A quiet, friendly place to spend a few nights, 2016-10-09
Captain: , Avondale, PA (448)

(9/17/2016 to 9/22/2016) We stopped here again on our way south and remain convinced this is one of the best kept secrets in the area. The price is right, the staff is helpful, the facilities in excellent condition and the club members are very, very friendly. Several club members helped us move into our narrow slip which required a stern entry in an opposing wind and current.

We used to live in the area and had friends to visit, one of whom loaned us a car which made it possible to visit Defender, grocery stores, Mystic Seaport and the USS Nautilus Museum. It was a very relaxing stay.

On the other hand, if you don't have a car, it's a long walk to any services that a boater might need. It might be worth it to rent a car at the Groton airport if you'll be here for a few days.

Wi-fi service was excellent on all the docks.

We'll stop here whenever we pass Groton.

(9/26/2014) The dockmaster led us in to a slip on a quiet dock just across from a UCONN facility at Avery Point. The very short finger piers required a stern tie and the dockmaster handled the bow lines to the outer pilings from his boat. The club members are quite friendly and invited us to join them in their activities on a Friday and Saturday night. The heads and showers are immaculate. There are no shopping facilities near the yacht club but if you can find a car, almost anything is within reach - including Defender in Waterford where I felt like I'd arrived in Mecca to be there in person after ordering so much online.



Very Nice YC., 2015-06-15
Captain: , SYC Pine Island Bay Ct. (20)

Pine Island bay location makes this a very good place for a stop over. The Club is well kept, and has bathroom and shower facilities, a fuel dock, ice and water, the members are quite friendly.



Save a three mile trip, 2011-02-04
Captain: , New London CT (121)

Considering that nearest fuel is up the Thames River, this is a fine spot to know about. Besides FIP (Fuel Ice and Pumpout) the gunk hole at Pine Island with town moorings gives you a break form the chop of the Sound on a breesy day.




Handy fuel, water and ice, 2010-03-06
Captain: , Old Lyme, CT (33)

Small and efficient fuel dock that offers gas and diesel fuel. Convenient water fill up and block ice complement the great service. Breakwater shelters the dock from the New London approach. Open to the public.
