Reviews for South Annapolis Yacht Centre
A barebones marina but it served our needs just fine..., 2015-09-18
Captain: , School of Hard Knocks (40)

We stopped here for an overnight during a three-day charter out of Rock Hall. We were on a 48' Beneteau and I was worried about the depths getting through the drawbridge, but we were fine. There's plenty of water all the way up to the docks. We were on the outside though, not sure about the slips on the inside. The marina is very basic. There was no one in the office when we arrived and we never spoke to anyone while we were there. My CC was charged the next day though, so they obviously knew we were there. There are, apparently, two sets of bathrooms on the property. A very small single near the office, and a men's and woman's on the western side of the property. We didn't know about the bathrooms on the western side when we were there, so I can't comment. The one near the main office is very small and seemed reasonably clean. The walk to Annapolis was doable, but we took a water taxi most of the time due to the heat. Water taxies go by very often, so it's easy to grab one. Overall, it's a little basic and a little far from the city, but as long as you're not expecting a five-star resort, you'll be fine.

Great Staff, 2014-10-29
Captain: , Dover, DE (101)

We stayed here for a few weeks over the 2014 Annapolis Sail Show. Excellent location and amazing staff. The staff is very focused on customer care. We are in our last two months of preparation of a 5 year globe trot and had many boxes sent including engines and other large palleted items, they stored and helped load them into the boat. The marina is in the process of a refit and very exciting things are in store according to those we spoke to. For now (late 2014) it is a fixed dock and while adiquate will be more than adequate with the new refit floating docks and planned facilities.

Big improvement, 2014-06-20
Captain: , Aventura, Florida (330)

I stayed here about 7 years ago and since then there has been big improvements made. They are still working on the marina but for a short stay it was ok. The staff was helpful and friendly and we had no power issues.

Captain: , Marco Island, FL (1145)

This is a combination of 2 marinas merged into one. The folks here are wonderful! We stayed for the whole month of July and we were charged $1,100 all in. The heads are adequate and clean. Each day we were there someone was working on improving something at the marina. Given a little more time, this could be a great marina. And a short walk to Eastport and Annapilis.

Marina undergoing changes, 2013-07-08
Captain: , Austin, TX (346)

South Annapolis Yacht Centre now includes Petirni Marina and Sarles Boatyard. Stayed here several days while working on boat. Some docks have been repaired but the one we were on needed some work. Water is good and at every slip. Could use some dock lights. WIFI near office and nice porch with table and chairs to use it, but WIFI did not reach boat. Restrooms and showers were clean but basic. Good location in Eastport part of Annapolis. Seems a little expensive at $3/ft but then it is Annapolis. Appears to still be a work in progress as the new management works on integrating the facilities and improving them.

Marina in Progress, 2013-05-11
Captain: , Marblehead MA (40)

Stayed here for a week on our trip north. Much work is going on to upgrade the facilities under the direction of new owners who are combining the old Sarles and Petrini yards and marinas. The location is great for accessing Annapolis and Eastport and I would expect that in another few months, my rating would be 5 stars
