Nantucket Boat Basin: Our 50th Anniversary Celebration continues throughout 2019.It's been 50 years since the award-winning Nantucket Boat Basin officially opened for business in May 1968. Construction of the marina was completed in 1969. Today the full-service Nantucket Boat Basin pet-friendly docks offer a variety of amenities, including complimentary wi-fi, kid's fishing equipment, and pre-arrival concierge service. Named Sailing Today's "Best Overseas Marina," and recipient of Marinas.com's "Boaters' Choice Award," the Boat Basin is open year-round and hosts many seasonal events, including
Figawi Race Weekend (May 24-27, 2019) and Nantucket Race Week (August 10- August 18, 2019).
