New Bern Grand Marina acted on the very best values of seamanship by assisting these vessels in distress. Well Done New Bern Grand!
The New Bern Grand Marina lies in the heart of downtown New Bern, North Carolina, along Trent River’s northern banks between the low-level Trent River highway and railroad bridges.
The marina was proud to serve as safe harbor to nearly 230 boats during hurricane Matthew. In the midst of multiple stories of Matthew’s devastation, we thought you might enjoy sharing a positive story.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
NEW BERN GRAND MARINA YACHT CLUB WAS SAFE HARBOR TO NEARLY 230 BOATS
New Bern, NC (October 10, 2016) – ALL IS WELL AT THE NEW BERN GRAND MARINA! For over 30 years, the New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club has been blessed and fortunate in not experiencing any major damage during severe weather and this year was no different. This past week the marina served as a safe harbor to nearly 230 boats during hurricane Matthew.
“The marina is known as a deep water year-round marina, but when severe weather conditions exist, our occupancy rates have historically jumped. However, this year was much different. At one point, we had completely run out of large slips and had only three 40’ slips left to rent. The marina was nearly 100% occupied which meant that Matthew was a storm to be respected. The wave attenuator along with the fact that the marina offers floating docks aided in the safety and protection for the marina’s live-aboard community and nearly 230 boats; along with the preservation of the marina as a whole. When you see the damage that Matthew ravaged throughout the entire east coast, we were fortunate in that we experienced zero damage, but more importantly, that the tenants and guests felt safe.” states Millissa True, on-site consultant.
