The Marina at Brown & Howard Wharf, located in the heart of the historic district of Newport, Rhode Island, welcomes an international yachting community with exceptional hospitality. In March of 2016, we installed brand new state-of-the-art docks, making our docks among the best in the Northeast. We provide terrific accoutrements including cable TV, dedicated internet access via LAN connection, free guest parking, a concierge to please all of our guests, and a large area amid our immaculate grounds for private events. New this year, along with our docks, is metered electric service.
Our world-class marina has slips available for yachts, large sailboats, and power vessels and is capable of accommodating vessels of various capacities ranging from 20’ to 300’, with beams up to 50’ and draughts up to 14’.
The Marina at Brown & Howard Wharf is centrally located between upper and lower Thames Street. It is easily accessible to a wide variety of boutiques, shops, restaurants, and galleries. Legendary music festivals, international polo matches, tours of Newport’s famous mansions, symposiums, and sandy beaches guarantee that there is something special for everyone in the City by the Sea. And while there’s a vibrant nightlife in Newport, The Marina at Brown & Howard Wharf is tranquil and quiet at night.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of Newport as one of the ports of the Volvo Ocean Race in May 2015, the Volvo Ocean Race is embracing Newport as the site of a second consecutive stopover in 2018.
