Donovan's Shady Harbor Marina & Boathouse Grille

Shady Harbor takes the term full-service marina to a whole new level. Easy approach slips, brand new docks, ValvTect gas and diesel, and a convenience store are just the tip of the nonexistent iceberg at Shady Harbor.

Boasting a unique Ship's Store and Gift Shop, outdoor riverfront dining (theĀ Boathouse Grille), a 30 foot in-ground pool, an air conditioned bath house, and on-site laundry, Shady Harbor is more than a's an experience. In addition to these great amenities, Shady Harbor offers nearby walking trails, and a bonfire pit. For those less-adventurous dockers, Shady Harbor offers free WiFi and cable TV.

Shady Harbor Marina is one of the few full service marinas on the Hudson River, offering full mechanical services and an extensive parts-inventory located right on site. An on-site dive service isĀ available for under-water retrieval and inspection, as well as a 35-ton lift is available for any out-of-the-water repairs. Shady Harbor Marina offers waxing, cleaning, and wood refinishing to keep your boat in tip-top shape.
