We Help You Run a Tight Ship

A boat is safe in harbor, but that’s not what boats are built for, as the saying goes. We understand this, as seasoned boaters and avid boating enthusiasts ourselves, here in Minnesott Beach, NC. We have the same passion for running a tight ship, just like you.

At Wayfarers Cove Marina & Boatyard, we believe the key to smooth sailing is assuring that maintenance is done correctly and efficiently at our complex.
