Default Deep water ramp on Neuse River close to New Bern

Can anyone point me to a deep water ramp either NC wildlife or a private marina that can handel a triaxle trailer and 27' boat near New Bern? Appreciate the help guys.

Any of the ramps at Lawson Creek would work fine the majority of the time. Only a hard SW will limit you. 3 ramps in back all should work and past experience with the 2 ramps under the bridge I preferred the one furthest away from the bridge for the larger boat.

I used to launch a 25 footer here all of the time without issue.

i have used that ramp before but i found the ramp rather short and the leading axle was off the ramp. I will try the one closer to the bridge. Thanks for the help

You can also try Merchants ramp on Brices Creek. Call the store and ask them if it would work for you.

I splashed a 28' houseboat at Seagate. I heard it's a short ramp but we didn't have any problems.

Jeff, do you still have that boat? Sea Camper it is, right?

Big Duck is a 1972 Land-n-Sea. And yes, we still have her. The pic was at Lake Russel a couple weeks ago.
A few years ago we splashed at Seagate to revisit Cape Lookout for an overnight on the hook...it brought back many memories from when we lived aboard for 3 years anchored in the Beaufort cut.

I launched and retrieved a 26’ at the ramps by the bridge many, many times with a tandem axle. Have certainly seen larger boats being launched and retrieved there as well. Union Point ramp would probably work, just tougher to do solo without the long dock.

Oh yes, I know Big Duck! I've read your blog.

Like he said above, the ramps near the bridge should be good to go, the ramps off to the left when you first come into the park are a bit short (even for smaller boats when the tide is out some)
