The Marina's.com award goes to top two percent of marinas in the nation.
KINGSTON, N.Y. – The Hudson River Maritime Museum has been awarded the 2017 Boater’s Choice award given to the top two percent of marinas in the nation. Selected out of 8,000 participants, HRMM was one of 152 marinas in the country to win the annual award. The Boater’s Choice award is given to marinas that receive an average of four star reviews given by boating customers.
In 2017, HRMM welcomed approximately 6,000 visitors to Kingston onboard private vessels, tall ships, cruise ships, and tour boats by way of the Hudson River. The museum waterfront was also one of the last major stops for the replica Spanish Galleon, El Galeon Andalucia, which attracted an additional 5,000 visitors to the Rondout.
HRMM’s waterfront boasts over 500 feet of dock space on the protected waters of the Rondout Creek, located in the heart of Kingston’s Historic Rondout District. All of the volunteer-built docks are constructed to commercial vessel standards and can accommodate ships up to 270 feet long. With a depth of 16 feet and no height restrictions at the docks, it is the perfect location for large vessels traveling on the Hudson River.
Overnight visitors have access to many amenities including shore power, water, wifi, showers, restrooms, and free admission to the Hudson River Maritime Museum and Riverport Wooden Boat School. Future plans include a new washer and dryer, new shower facilities, improved wifi, ADA access to docks, continued Rondout Lighthouse Tours, and all online booking. The museum’s location provides prime access to shops, restaurants, outdoor recreation, and cultural centers all within walking distance in the lovely historic Rondout Waterfront.
