• 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.

  • Countdown to 2021 Boating...

    As we eagerly await the 2021 boating season at Shady Harbor, we are hopeful that the upcoming season will bring some normalcy back to our world. While the 2021 season officially begins on May 1st, we look forward to floating our docks as soon as the weather allows this Spring.


    It's not too late to join the Shady Harbor community for the upcoming season! Seasonal dockage contracts are available and transient dockage reservations open beginning February 1st. Whether you are looking for a new home port, passing through on the Loop or looking for a weekend getaway, Shady Harbor Marina is the place to be.


    Book your visit with us to explore the Majestic Hudson River and Capital Region of New York. Reserve your space now and get on the water early in the Spring of 2021. (We are not limited by the canals and lock schedules.)


    2021 Season officially begins May 1st...

    Seasonal contracts are available for the 2021 season. Contact us by email (marina@shadyharbormarina.com) or leave a message at the office (518-756-8001) to request a new contract if you would like to join the fun at Shady Harbor Marina this season.

    Book your Spring Commissioning and launch requests early...

    As always, the Shady Harbor team accepts Spring Commissioning, service work and launch requests on a first come, first served basis. To schedule your Spring Commissioning and preferred launch date, you must have a signed and paid dockage contract on file in the Ship Store. As always, we are limited by tides and weather to keep our team safe.

    The ship store and office are currently closed for the season. We are available throughout the off-season by appointment, by phone and by email to answer any questions or to place orders for boating supplies. Call us at 518-756-8001 for assistance or to make an appointment.
