Reviews for Smith's Marina
Great Customer Service, 2013-09-05
Captain: , Crownsville, MD (10)

We've been with Smith's Marina for 4 years and have loved every minute there. The entire staff is very accomodating, and Rick is very knowledgeable about all aspects of boats.



Haul-out and service, 2012-05-18
Captain: , Crownsville, MD (90)

I hauled out our 39' Dehler here for the first time this past winter. Rick and his crew did an excellent job in bringing the hull down to gelcoat and applying barrier coat and anti-fouling paint. Price was reasonable, also.
Our boat carries a 6.5' draft. You can get in the channel here but you have to stay to the right side when entering. Travel-lift ramp must be at least at mid-water to get our boat out of water. Best to enter/exit/haul out close to high tide.

An out-of-the way marina with helpful, friendly people. Not near any land transportation and/or restaurants except if access to a car is available. Fuel prices are lower than anywhere else in Annapolis area and many subcontractors working in yard can perform most repairs . Owner is on-site almost all of the time. Follow private markers carefully on entering and can carry 6' all the way. Many repeat customers store boats here every winter.



Super service, 2012-05-08
Captain: , Findlay, OH (206)

Needed a thru hull and 10 fried batteries replaced. They fit me in to the schedule, hauled it, and got the work done reasonably. Back in the same day! Kudo's to Rick, John, Brian, and the rest of the crew.



Great prices on fuel, 2011-07-07
Captain: , Annapolis, MD (1090)

Update 7/7/2011: See the updated navigation notes - shoaling around the channel markers.

We have been using Smith's for our boating needs for more than 12 years. Rick (owner) is very personable and highly knowledgable about all things related to boating. The yard is well equipped for most repairs and does a great job with bottom paint, hull waxing, and fiberglass repair. They don't hestitate to recommend others for engine and electrical service.

The pump out can be a bit tempermental, but can usually be made to function.

We like it here.



Poorly marked chanel, uninformed attendent on phone,, 2011-06-28
Captain: , Key Largo (5457)

Called them twice to insure I could get in with 4 ft. draft, I din't get in. The person on the phone told me to go in on the red side of center. i did and ran aground.
Luckily, nothing happend to the boat, but it could have been $$ due to bad informatin given on the phone.
I do not recomend this marina for any but the smallest boats.



Great Workmanship!, 2010-10-13
Captain: , Annapolis (1465)

Just had a new Bow Thruster and tunnel installed. Rick did a great job on the installation, wiring and fiberglassing. Very fair price, too.



Nice marina but tricky entrance, 2009-10-31
Captain: , Buffalo (1154)

We were there only for a couple of hours while a crane set a new generator into the engine room, but the facilities were good, and the docks are very sheltered. It is a bit out of the way unless you have some other reason to go up the Severn River.
