Reviews for West River Yacht Harbor
The price is right, 2013-09-05
Captain: , Great Falls, VA (1092)

If you are looking for a long term slip for a reasonable price in a laid back marina, this is a good spot. No short term transients, but I was able to do a 3 month slip rental. It is a condo marina, but many owners rent out their slips. Dont let the "condo" thing throw you off, this isnt like the snobby condo marinas you see in FL, its older and laid back with a working boat yard. A slip here is a fraction of the cost of Annapolis and only 15min by car to Annapolis.

Downsides though (which I dont mind too much, the price levels it out). A lot of wake can get you rocking and rolling occationally, weekend speed limit is not well enforced. Tiny finger peirs, not any worse the most marinas on the Chesapeake Bay really, but I still find it annoying. No laundry facilities is probably my biggest complaint (but the bathroom/shower facilities are great). It does have a pool, but its ruined by the fact that it is "open to the public", they sell pool memberships to people in the surrounding neighborhoods, ensuring the pool is always full of screaming kids.

Even though I only gave it 3 stars, if I return to the area again for a long period I would gladly rent a slip here, being an easy drive to Annapolis while paying 1/4th of the slip rental makes up for all the downsides.



Good deals can be found here, 2012-05-30

If you are staying long term (usually a year) you can find some good deals assuming you fit into the slip. We have a 38 foot sailboat that we lived-aboard there twice. Our slip on C dock was tight and exposed to Northeasterlies. It can get pretty rough there. If you get a slip that is protected by A dock, you'd be fine. Restrooms are good as is the pool. Friendly atmosphere and close to two and sometimes three restaruants. (One place goes in and out of businss often.) Look at their web site or on search on craigslist.org for slip rentals or purchases.

This is an condo dock. There are plenty of slips for rent or sale. Contact the web site...westriveryachtharbour.org. Inquire at Galesville Yacht Yard for short term/long term slip rental. Harbourmaster is Billy Locke. He lives on E dock.
