Wilmington Marine Centrer is a good stop….about three miles from down town by Taxi or a long Dink ride up the river.
Very sheltered and safe during bad weather.
In town…..lots of places to eat and drink.
Slainte for Irish a few doors down from Front Street Brewey.
A block or so away is Hell’s Kitchen….very much a two thumbs up place for food and drink….was my favorite hang out.
Stay in the channel as it gets shallow fast.

We kept our boat at the Wilmington Marine Center for the 8 months in 2010/2011 while we were back in Florida for the fall & winter. Skip and his staff were wonderful. I cannot say too much about the level of service we received while there. When we were looking for a place to leave our boat for this layup period that we felt was protected against storms and was convenient to a boat yard, and WMC fit for us.
Gregory Poole Marine repairs is located at the marina and DeMann Diesels, Tom DeMann and company, is located across the street. We had repairs done by both companies (bottom painting and misc other work at Poole and Cummins diesel maintenance at DeMann) and McConville Marine (Thrusters & HVAC).

Wilmington Marine Center, about 1/2 way to downtown up the Cape Fear is extremely safe both weatherwise and security, good prices, and it is a very good boat yard if you need any repairs/maintenance.

We stayed at Wilmington Marine Center on the Cape Fear River. It is a surge free hurricane hole at Buoy 59 about 12 miles from the ICW and a couple miles before Wilmington. (A cruise from the marina to downtown Wilmington for lunch is delightful especially when guests visit.) The facility is secure and remote. Are you planning to stay with the boat? There is nothing within walking distance.
Last year I paid $400/month plus metered electric. Call Chris (dockmaster) at 910 395 5055.
