• At Donovan’s Shady Harbor Marina,
    It’s All About Our Customers

    Being boaters all of our married lives, we understand the importance of being treated right wherever our boat takes us. The way we see it, a positive attitude, and a strong desire to create a fun environment are most important. We hope to see you regularly as we continually improve upon our facilities. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions.

    —Brian and Kathy Donovan

  • What's New for 2020

    To protect both our team and all of you, as well as follow local, state and federal guidelines; we have established the following plan for April as we gear up for the season.

    2020 Season Set to Begin May 1st

    As we gear up for the 2020 season and practice social distancing, we will continue to be available by phone and email. Please note: All marina buildings will remain CLOSED until May 1st, in line with local, state and federal recommendations to Slow the Spread. This includes the Ship Store, Shop, Restaurant and Bath House.

    Accepting Service and Launch Requests Now

    As we prepare to open for the 2020 Season beginning May 1st, we will be scheduling service work and boat launch slots on a first come, first served basis. As always, we are limited by tides and weather...and now by social distancing limitations to keep our team safe.


    Please note, priority will be given to boaters based on date contract was received, combined with requested launch date.
