When it comes to friendly, knowledgeable staff, complete boating facilities, boating recreation and on-site dining no other marina is better than Bay Pointe Marina in Quincy, MA. Just a short distance from Boston or the Cape, Bay Pointe Marina offers a full array of yacht and boating services, coupled with an atmosphere of relaxation and hospitality.
Located at 64 Washington Court directly off of Rte 3A in Quincy, Bay Pointe Marina is remarkably convenient to reach regardless of which direction you are traveling from. This location offers the perfect balance of convenience and privacy. Personally, I’ve lived in the area for over twenty-five years and grew up near the ocean so I’ve spent my fair share of time on the water. In fact, as a South Shore native, there’s nothing I look forward to more than the season’s first boat ride and evenings docked up, enjoying a drink, good company and taking in the gorgeous views of the coast. Imagine my surprise (and delight!) when I took a right off of 3A onto Washington Court, drove through a quaint neighborhood and arrived at the impressive entrance of Bay Point Marina. I couldn’t believe that less than 10 minutes away from my house, on a street I drove by on almost a daily basis, this hidden treasure has been tucked away on the waterfront and expanding and I had no idea. Boy, had I been missing out!
Bay Pointe Marina is part of Suntex Marinas, which is a marina management company operating throughout the United States. “Bay Pointe Marina is truly a hidden jewel of the Northeast,” Chris Petty, President of Suntex Marinas, said. “It has proven to be a great addition to our growing portfolio of premier destination marinas.
