Newport Maritime Center
The waterside view of the Maritime Center and Ann Street Pier
The City of Newport Maritime Center was opened in May 2012 in the Armory building located at 365 Thames Street. The extensive rehabilitation was made possible through a Boating Infrastructure Grant funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, cash contribution from the City of Newport, Newport County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Newport Restoration Foundation and Bowen’s Wharf Company.
The Maritime Center offers a variety of amenities to boaters in Newport Harbor:
- Showers (coin operated, change machine available)
- Laundry (coin operated, change machine available)
- Ice and vending machines
- Transient Dockage at Ann Street Pier for vessels less than 40' LOA (first come, first serve)
Ann Street Pier offers a free dinghy dock for dinghies less than 14'.
