• 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

  • Enjoy Fall 2020 Boating

    As the 2020 season winds down at Shady Harbor, it's not too late to enjoy some of the best boating in the Northeast!

    If you are just passing through or looking for a weekend getaway, Shady Harbor Marina is the place to stop.


    Book your visit with us to explore the Majestic Hudson River and Capital Region of New York.

    Or, reserve your space in our storage yard this winter to get on the water early in the Spring of 2021.

    We are not limited by the canals and lock schedules.


    2020 Season is winding down...

    As we enjoyed a beautiful summer and amazing weather the past several months, we hope the trend continues into the Fall to extend our boating season through to October. As always, we will continue to monitor and follow local, state and federal recommendations for social distancing on the property and kindly ask you to do the same out of respect for fellow boaters and guests. As we tell our children, "use your best judgement and make good choices!"

    Accepting Winter Storage Contracts and Haul-Out Requests Now

    Sadly, it's that time of year to plan for haul-out and winter storage. The Shady Harbor team is currently accepting haul-out and winterizing service requests on a first come, first served basis. To schedule your preferred haul-out date, you must have a signed and paid winter storage contract on file in the Ship Store. As always, we are limited by tides and weather...and now by social distancing limitations to keep our team safe.

    Ship Store is open daily

    The ship store is open daily for your convenience. Stop in for boating supplies, essential grocery items and some fun gift ideas.
