Marina & Shipyard

Marine Services at your fingertips

For over 70 years, Shearwater has been the Central Coast’s leader in a variety of premium marine services, storage, and moorage. We have the equipment and ability to safely handle your vessel, whether its for repair or storage. Our licensed mechanics and their team will quickly take care of you and your vessel to get you where you want to be: on the water. For more comprehensive work, our team can safely haul your vessel onto the hard and store it safely.

If you’re swinging into our marina for a short visit, we will generally be able to accommodate you. Our marina includes 1500 feet of moorage space, power, and water is available.  During the summer months, a reservation is typically required.

Mooring at Shearwater

Mooring at Shearwater couldn’t be easier. During the off-season, just check in with the hotel front desk to arrange payment. Our rates are competitive and based on the linear length of your vessel. If you need power, we will be happy to turn on a breaker for you. We offer 15, 30 and 50 amp service from multiple points on our dock.

During the summer season, our marina comes to life with all sorts of vessels and activities. It is highly recommended for you to reserve space well in advance. Potable water is available at our main pier throughout the summer months, near the harbour master float house. If you need water, please speak with a staff member at the float house. Our harbour master is also available on VHF Channel 66A or by sending an email here.
