Reviews for Yankee Boat Yard and Marina
Great place to store a boat., 2013-03-22
Captain: , Palm Coast, Florida (785)

Over 20 years I've kept boats (sail) over the winter at YBY. This yard is a DIY yard, but has contractors if you need them. Reb and Abe know how to run a marina. I live in Florida now, and brought the boat down but I haven't been able to find a marina that is run as well as this one.



Great for winter storage, 2011-09-19
Captain: , Mystic (909)

I have been storing my boat there on the hard for the winter for 4 years. Nice folks, very accomodating, easy to work with. Anything I have asked for in the way of special handling or blocking they have complied with. So for winter haulout, I recommend them highly.



Great place, 2011-08-03
Captain: , Fort Pierce, FL (84)

This is my second summer here and I like it. Easy, relaxed, and no hassles. The river is clean and we go swimming almost every day. The local resturants are great, and everything we need is close by. The crew is friendly and helpful.



Always Friendly, 2010-07-17
Captain: , Portland, CT (20)

I've used various services at Yankee, and they are a top notch crew. The are always friendly, always professional, and steer you in the right direction. Nice, easy ramp with plenty of room.
