New Marina Makes Big Splash on Boston Harbor

The Marina at Admiral’s Hill announced this week that a brand new multi-million-dollar waterfront development project is underway to bring a state-of-the-art marina to a desirable neighborhood on Boston Harbor in Chelsea.

Designed to accommodate power boats and sailboats for a broad range of boaters, the brand new Marina at Admiral’s Hill will provide a dramatically different type of boating experience in the harbor.

The docks can accommodate boats up to 70 feet, while the majority of boats are between 20 and 40 feet in length.

In collaboration with The Army Corps of Engineers, the marina development has been mindful of environmental concerns. The new pilings (the large posts docks attach to) are 7 feet taller than before to account for potential rising water levels in the coming decades. In addition, the construction schedule was created to ensure the project is completed in the coldest months of February and March with enough time to allow space for an annual flounder run in the Island End River, the fish’s mating season.

Boating services include both wet and dry dockage and storage; a fifty-ton travel lift; winter and summer commissioning; shrink-wrapping; boat washing; cosmetic and mechanical work.

The project will be completed this spring.

There are a few slips still available for rental.

The new marina features a leading-edge dockage system, state-of-the-art electric and high-speed wifi, free parking, on-shore amenities, and, best of all, a wake-free experience.

 “This is an extraordinary opportunity for passionate boaters seeking quality, value, amenities and convenience, to get an outstanding marina experience, in a brand new marina, at a price they will love,” said developer Kevin Saba.

Just 15 minutes by boat to the bustling new Seaport District and 20 minutes to open water and the Boston Harbor Islands, the marina provides a safe-harbor to open water experience at a fraction of the cost of other harbor marinas.

The marina is also designed to make it easy to meet new friends and reconnect with old friends, Saba said.

The docks are designed to allow a visit to any slip from either gang-way. Boaters can expect a welcome BBQ every Friday night during the summer in the BYOB tiki hut. Landside event space is available, complete with a kitchen, to accommodate special events. The on-site space can be used for get-togethers, game nights, and socializing inside during inclement weather.

Common Cove, a co-working space located beside the marina office provides on demand desk space and reliable wi-fi for remote workers; residential Microlofts above provide a place to stay after a long time at sea; and Mary O’Malley harbor view park offers walking/jogging trails, tennis courts, and places to picnic. For commuting, there are Zip Car’s on site, or you can take a short Uber ride to downtown Boston.
