Make a change for the better and dock at the Morehead City Yacht Basin. With BoatUS the rate is $1.80 per foot. The two dock hands take care of everything, even putting a carpet over your power cord so you don’t trip. Then go to Floyd’s Restaurant, two blocks away, with GREAT food. Bring a signed business card from the dock master and they will give you a FREE desert. To food is the BEST. We found this place because the Sanitary Restaurant put in a new floating dock, charges $25.00 per night, must eat there, customers eating at the new outdoor dining keep you up at night, lots of wakes and we almost got hit by an old sport fish boat coming into dock. Never Again. Go to Morehead City Yacht Basin, you will have a great time.

This is the first class facility in the area. Far, far above others for miles around. Protected harbor; large, concrete, secure floating docks; knowledgeable, friendly, helpful staff; great fuel prices; huge, beautiful captains’ lounge; commercial washer and dryer; courtesy car ($10); and an attitude to please the customer are among the features that make this marina enjoyable. It is a few pennies more per foot than some other close-by marinas, but the value ratio of price/features is outstanding.

We stayed there on our way south last fall and it was great. The dock hands were courteous and the rates were way less than Beaufort City docks. It was well protected from winds and wakes.They even give a discount on fuel if you stay the night. We will definitely stay there when we head North.

We dined there [at the Ruddy Duck] when we stopped at Morehead City Yacht Basin on our way South Fall 2012. Great food, especially the fish tacos and margarita pizza. Drinks were reasonable, especially during happy hour. Would recommend this restaurant in a heartbeat!

Spent 5/9/13 there. Marina is still first class. Great help from employees. One of half dozen cruisers on transient face dock. Good facilities, kept clean. Floating docks. Easy walk to several good restaurants. Courtesy car for shopping. Most boats in marina are sport fish. The sport fish boat across the dock had two mid-aged guys planning to go out in the morning. They were loud until after midnight and got up at 0500 and were loud again. Started engines at 0500 and didn’t leave until 0600. But before leaving they turned off our shore power which was on the same post as theirs ( we never said a word to them). We’ll stop there again.

We like this one. It’s modern with good staff. Although not in the middle of the other marinas, there is a high end restaurant a very short walk away and another that delivers good pizza and sandwiches.
The faculty has a loaner car ($10/ 2 hours) to take you to any and all supermarkets, West Marine and hardware. We believe the better one are all on the Morehead City side.

Moved to Morehead City Yacht Basin which was perhaps one of the best marinas we have encountered. This is a first class facility. Rented a car for 2 hours for $10. Staff Diana and Tom were great – gave us restaurant advice which couldn’t have been better. Ruddy Duck and Beach Bumz – worth a visit.

Our previous stop was Morehead City Yacht Basin. We chose this marina based on your guide recommendations as well as first hand recommendations from a cruiser we met in Myrtle Beach, SC. We heard more than one negative comment regarding a marina in Beaufort, so decided to stay at MHYB. We spent a week both going north and returning south. Using the courtesy car from MCYB, we visited Beaufort, but enjoyed docking in Morehead.
Mike and the other folks working there made our stay more than enjoyable. Such friendly people. The laundry facilities are great. The courtesy car, even though not free (10.00), was most helpful to drive to the newly opened Harris Teeter. We re-stocked our larder during both stays.
On our trip up, we enjoyed lunch and dinner on the 4th at Floyd’s, just a few steps away from the Marina. Great food and friendly service. The restuarant offered access to the 2nd floor porch during dinner so we could view the fireworks, hence our eating two meals on the same day at the location. It was great to watch firework displays from both Atlantic Beach and Morehead City from such a position.
If anyone is looking for a true NY deli, sample the New York Deli in Atlantic Beach. Small place, but great food. They also offer pasta and other italian dishes for lunch as well as a Friday night dinner. Very nice people. The Admiral stated this rueben had the “right stuff!”

Took fuel and stayed at Morehead City next night – good spot, helpful staff & reasonable prices. Plenty of restuarants to choose from with easy walking distance. Also one Mini-Mart type store for basics but real groceries or hardware, etc are not in walking distance.

Just a quick note to support one of your sponsors: I recently stayed at Morehead City Yacht Basin for 3 nights, and I found the place to be top notch! Clean, professional and friendly. The marina is absolutely protected from any winds & wake, and the docks are like new. Spotless restrooms and laundry. They loaned me a 50amp-30amp adaptor, and have a car available for $10. The South’s greatest marine hardware store is only 2 blocks away (Ace Marine Hardware). Morehead City Yacht Basin is perhaps not the very cheapest (but they do offer a Boat/US discount), but definately worth the price.

MOREHEAD CITY (9/3 – 9/8, TS Hanna). We went to the MC Yacht Basin there because it is on the north side of US 70 and better protected than the marinas along the waterfront. They took us in with a warning that we might have to evacuate, but were very friendly and helpful. Many of the slip owners were taking their boats up to Core Creek for haul out, while some others (like us) were coming in for refuge! The town was semi-closed, but we enjoyed suppers at Floyd’s, Sanitary Seafood, and the Ice House. There is a courtesy car available (for $10 rental) for grocery and other shopping. About 0600 Saturday morning we had gusts to better that 60 mph. Several of us had canvas casualties, but no serious damage.
