The Taylor Point Marina built in 1984, is today the oldest aluminum marina in North America. The first generation of Structure 40, anchored with wooden stakes with green heat, this marina has the merit of having successfully survived Hurricane Hugo in 1989. The only up-to-date change is that the old treated southern yellow pine has been refurbished in 2005 with IPE decking.
Situated between the head of Buzzards Bay and the Cape Cod Canal, the marina provides a superb access point for boaters to explore. The site includes 148 slips, a fuel dock, a sanitary pumping station, seasonal public toilets, private bathrooms and showers throughout the year, and a marine store. Moorings and slips can accommodate vessels up to 50 feet.
The shoreline around Taylor Point Marina is widely developed, bordered by suburban neighborhoods and the Massachusetts Maritime Academy. The ramp at this facility is the only entirely public ramp in the Town of Bourne. It is in excellent condition and well-protected from wind and tide. It is definitely a place to discover.
