Voted the 2010 ‘Best Transient Marina’ in the U.S.A by Marinalife, this world class and pristine facility is ideally located in the heart of picturesque historic Nantucket Village.  Top notch restaurants, shops and grocery stores are a delightful stroll away, making this marina an absolute favorite of many owners, guests and crews of all yacht sizes!  Upon arrival, all visiting yachts are greeted with the same warm welcome and professionalism, from line handling to the receipt of information/welcome packages.  The marina is one the greenest in the world:  only biodegradable cleaning products are permitted, no dishwashers or washing machines discharge in the harbor and house waste has to be disposed of in transparent biodegradable bags.  The other asset of the Boat Basin is Certified Marina Manager George Bassett, onsite for 26 years.  He is a former US Coast Guard Officer, and over the years, this exceptional gentleman known for his friendliness and professionalism, has become a highly respected local figure.  He has been awarded US Coast Guard Officer of the Year, Interstate Hotel Corporation Manager of the Year and Nantucket Island’s Mr. Hospitality of the Year, among others.  He is proud to be proactive and a real pioneer in environmental issues.  He is assisted by his lovely daughter Christy, who is in charge of communications and is the friendly voice greeting arriving yachts on the VHF.  The marina hosts many events yearly, such as fishing tournaments and sailboat regattas.  (See ‘Events’ category below.)  They encourage visitors to enjoy off season sailing by offering excellent discounted rates in May/June and after Labor Day.
