I was in the Newburyport Boat Basin last season and have already paid for this season. It's owned by the company that owns 3 other marinas in Newburyport. It's pretty a pretty basic no frills marina.

The pricing should be listed on their website, but for Newburyport the prices start around $110/ft and go up from there. Also most marinas are pretty full and usually waitlisted so I would start calling around sooner rather than later. You can find a mooring a lot easier and at a fraction of the price, just a thought.

I doubt you will find a slip in Gloucester. I called every marina and could not get a slip. I ended up posting a slip wanted ad on craigslist and got lucky. Someone was looking to get out of their contract and the marina allowed me to take his place.

Beverly Port Marina might have some availability.

Most of the marinas are minimally staffed right now. You probably won’t get many to answer the phone or return messages very quickly.

Saw in the newspaper a Marina in Amesbury with open slips. I honestly can't remember the name.

They are most likely working reduced hours this time of year. Send them an email, they will get back to you.

Newburyport Yacht Club is great!! Not cheap at all though. You save money going farther up river if that's a concern but then you have to No Wake a lot of the way out to the inlet. My friends have been at Rings Island for years and like it a lot. The best "bargain" is the North End Boat Club but there's a long wait to get in there. Don't forget you will have to pay excise tax on your boat in Nbpt & get a waterways sticker to moor there.

Hatters Point was a great place to stay. we were there about 5 years ago. Very quiet, but the ride out to the mouth was a PITa. But very close to the sand bar which was fun to hang around.

Is the "No-Wake" pretty much from the Inlet all the way up the river? I also was thinking of around newburyport this year but starting to think different. How long is the trip from say Hatteras point marina to the inlet? I knew about the water way permit, but what is the excise tax? Ive always been up in the Portland area and last year had a mooring at great bay, but that ride out I hated haha.

I am a member and keep my boat at the Newburyport yacht club. Depending on what seasonal non-member package you take a 25ft boat will cost you between 3300-3500 for the season. Takes 20-30 minutes to get to the mouth of the river from there. Just depends on river traffic. The no wake starts inside the river near where the jetties begin, but it opens up for a stretch coming towards Newburyport to almost the ice breaker before the harbor, then from there on in it is pretty much no wake from there. There is a small stretch on the “back” of the river by a spot called high rock that you can bypass the river/no wake and open up some, but even back there a lot of people anchor and I have seen the harbor masters bust chops due to speed and safety. I’m also a member at North End and you have to be a member for I think 5 years before you can even get on the dock/mooring list.

If you are thinking of the Amesbury marinas, and I think that there are three of them, it's about 3 miles (one way) on the river (all No Wake) just to get to the Newburyport marinas. That distance takes you about 40 minutes each way. For me it was not worth the the $10/ft I would save by going up river.

If I recall correctly - Hatters point to the mouth was about 35- 40 minutes each way. No wake for 90% of the way.

Is there a big advantage to Amesbury being Fresh Water?
