Dock & Mooring Accommodations

Transient vessel tie up at the Waterfront Docks is available from Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend. 

Vessels coming into Newburyport Harbor looking to tie up should contact the Newburyport Dockmaster via VHF Channel 12 to check space availability and for docking assistance. The dockmaster will also manage collecting fees from vessels. 

Hourly and nightly docking fees can be found below. Please note that our lowest rate for hourly docking is for up to 3 hours. Every vessel on our docks will have access to water and electricity for the duration of their stay. In addition to our dock space we also have three guest moorings available for overnight booking at a rate of $50.00 per night.
