Great cove boat club

Great Cove Boat Club is a small association of sail and power boat enthusiasts who dock their vessels at our marina along the Piscataqua River in Eliot, Maine. Founded in 1988, we have approximately 70 members occupying 89 slips and 14 moorings.

The Club's main goal is to provide a safe and sociable home port for its members. The Club hosts a variety of social gatherings, offers opportunities to develop good seamanship skills through classes and workshops, and provides facilities for berthing, maintaining and storing its members' vessels. The Club also strives to foster an appreciation of the marine environment and maritime interests, as well as the seafaring heritage of the Maine and New Hampshire region.


Due to our unique location, we are able to offer a number of services to the boating public, including:

  • Winter storage, in water or upland
  • Shrink wrap
  • Haul out rail system into a heated boat house


The Great Cove Clubhouse provides a spacious meeting room where members enjoy chatting over morning coffee and hold frequent potluck dinners. The Clubhouse features:

  • Full kitchen facilities
  • Restrooms and showers
  • Laundry facilities
  • Ice machine
  • Meeting space
  • Internet access

During summer, a large tented area with picnic tables and gas grills serves as a popular evening gathering place for cook-outs and the telling of tall tales.


Among the amenities that Great Cove members enjoy dockside are:

  • Electricity
  • Fresh water
  • Convenient fuel dock for members

We are one of only a few marinas on the Piscataqua River. We are located across from Portsmouth on the Maine side of the river. We have a full time marina manager and staff to take care of you and all your needs during our summer season. We also offer off season storage, both in and out of the water. Your boat never has to leave.
