Finest Family Run Marina Around, 2014-07-24
Captain: , Huntington Harbor (60)

Jeff, Dick, Dave and Todd along with their top knotch group of loyal employees make this the best marina in the Huntington area.



Good No-Frills Mooring, 2013-09-13
Captain: , Rye Boat Basin (407)

We stayed overnight at their guest mooring. Launch service runs until 10pm, then again from 8am. Restrooms available in the yard; 20 mins walk from the city center.
Cheaper than other guest moorings in the area.

I bought a used brokerage sailboat here from David Willis in the fall, kept it there till spring on the hard. Great boat yard, had them do some work and they did an excellent job. Dave Willis went the extra mile on a maintenance problem to get me on my way on time.

I bought my Beneteau 393 here from Dave Willis. The entire team at Willis Marine has made my entire first season of boat ownership very rewarding.

Full service marina, great access to downtown, great staff.

The staff is friendly and knowledgable, many are sailors themselves, and are quick with urgent repairs so everyone can be on the water.
