Shelter Cove Yacht Basin

Shelter Cove Yacht Basin

To our valued customers and guests,
During this difficult time, we will be forced to comply with the Governor’s order to furlough all non-essential staff.

We will have limited staff resources on duty in the service and operations departments at each location in order to fulfill all open customer commitments and ensure safe operations. 

Unfortunately will be forced to press pause on our spring activities including boat launches. We will be splashing a limited number of units from storage as time allows. 

Thank you for your patience as we navigate these difficult waters.


Shelter Cove Yacht Basin is located on 17 acres and offers 150 wet slips, 28 of which are covered, 9 are reserved for transients.  The marina can accommodate boats with a max LOA of 50 feet, with a max beam of 12 feet.  High/dry rack storage capacity for 100 boats with year around forklift service is also available.
