About Our Program

The Stay Local Boat MA transient referral program was established to encourage seasonal boaters to travel to various destination marinas along the beautiful coastline of Massachusetts and in return receive a discount for doing so. If you are a seasonal guest at one of the participating marinas you are eligible for a dockage/moorings discount at any of the other participating marinas. The program is also designed to encourage group travel by offering a larger discount based on the total amount of boats traveling.


When making your slip reservations simply indicate verbally or in writing that you are part of the Stay Local Boat MA program and specify your homeport marina. Upon arrival at the destination location please show your STAY LOCAL BOAT MA preferred card to obtain the dockage discount.


** Black out dates may apply and each marina is responsible for establishing their own rules and regulations. For specific questions regarding the program please contact the individual marina you are planning on traveling to.


The marinas that are currently involved in the program offer various services and amenities that a traveling vessel would expect. The amenities include but are not limited to the following: Fuel, Ice, Bait, Tackle, Ship Stores, Mechanical & Repair services, Internet, Phone, Cable, Electric, Restaurants, Hotels, Spas, shopping and various other services and amenities as well. Amenities vary by location.
