Reviews for Windward Yacht Yard
Pricey but OK, as long as you have no issues with their service., 2016-06-23
Captain: , Oriental, NC (26)

We had a difference of opinion. When I was unhappy with their service, I thought it was important. They thought I should A) like it, B) pay them to more or C) lump it. Lump it was they would put me back in the water and I could go somewhere else, as if that was an option. Not my kind of operation.Too much testosterone. Office manager was resonably nice but has no real power.



Marina and yard are both good., 2013-07-05
Captain: , Newburyport (10)

Home marina last three years. Newuryport is a wonderful town, Windward is in the heart of it. Channel is only a problem with an easterly wind against out going tide, which can create an ugly situation at the bar. Otherwise, stay close to the greens as you enter, then stick to the middle of the channel. Michaels Restaurant at head of dock. Newburyport Marinas monitor 71.



Decent and good food at Michaels, 2013-06-21
Captain: , Portsmouth, NH (279)

Pay close attention to the charts and the channel coming in from the open ocean along the river and stay in the channel. Can't stress that enough. But, this is a decent place with friendly people and an afternoon at Michaels on the deck is worth the time.
