Want to be at the center of the Cape and Islands' boating scene without having to deal with Cape traffic, and more importantly, Cape slip rental rates and dockage fees? Make South Wharf Yacht Yard & Marina your new home port.

One of New England's best kept secrets, South Wharf is a full-service yard and marina in the historic village of Padanaram, South Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Offering deep-water slips up to 130 feet, we're just across Buzzards Bay from Cuttyhunk, in the middle of New England's prime sailing and cruising grounds of Martha's Vineyard, the Elisabeth Islands and Nantucket. On the land side, South Wharf is only an hour from Boston and 30 minutes from Cape Cod, Newport and Providence.

South Wharf boasts the muscle and know-how for hauling and launching just about any kind of yacht you can think of. Our state-of-the-art facilities include a 55-ton travel lift as well as winter storage making us the go-to location for boaters who care about how their boats are treated. South Wharf's factory-trained and certified technicians are experts in the installation and repair of marine electronics, inboard and outboard engines, electrical, heating, plumbing and A/C. We're also the authorized servicing dealer of Yamaha, Volvo, Yanmar, Raymarine, Simrad, Garmin, B&G, Cummings, AB Inflatables and offer complete outfitting/repair and customization of sail and power vessels.
