New Transient Facilities in Newport

The Ann Street Pier offers public dockage for vessels up to 40 feet, a dinghy dock, pump-out facility, trash disposal and a stop for the harbor shuttle.

The Maritime Center will be administered by Newport Harbormaster Tim Mills, a Portsmouth resident, and managed by his assistant, Sara Schroeder. Hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. Boaters can contact the center on VHF Channel 09, by phone at 401/845-5870 or e-mail at sschroeder@cityofnewport.com.


Newport’s new Maritime Center is scheduled to open in late May. Located in the Newport Armory, the $1.46 million facility is owned by the City of Newport and the project has been in the planning stages since 2008.

Re: New Transient Facilities in Newport

Soundbounder,

Glad you posted that. Was reading about this last night.
Nice to have something at the end of the town / dingy dock. Used to always go in that beautiful building to look at antiques . May impact the Seamen’s institute though, which offers the same kind of amenities.

I was thinking the same thing, but there is definitely a need for more showers
