Located within Danversport’s naturally protected harbor are several private marinas including the Danversport Yacht Club, Bunky's Marina, Liberty Marina and Pope's Landing Marina. The Crane River Marina is the Town’s only public marina and provides dockage for 68 vessels up to 25' in length. The harbor is made up of four rivers; the Danvers River, Waters River, Cranes River and Porter River. Collectively, the harbor is homeport to more than 1,000 vessels. Fuel is available at the Danversport Yacht Club as well as pumpout service station.

Boat Launching
Pope's Landing is located less than ½ mile from Route 128 (exit 23). For a minimum charge of $5.00 ($75 for the season) you can launch your boat using our recently rebuilt boat launch ramp. The Landing also offers public restrooms, a lighted parking lot, scenic park, and picnic area. There is a thirty minute tie-up area at the public dock for boaters who want to enjoy the view and use the picnic area and facilities.
The Harbormaster's office oversees the placement and permitting of 125 moorings. Moorings are privately owned by boaters and homeowners. The Town of Danvers is not currently permitting new moorings, however, moorings being sold are offered to waiting list applicants.
Pumpout Services
The Town of Danvers, in partnership with the Danversport Yacht Club, is committed to improving the water quality of our rivers and streams. Our boaters can also help by utilizing our free pump out facilities and services. In June of 2009, the Harbormaster’s Office commissioned a new pumpout boat and launched an online pumpout registration program. In just three months, the program registered 112 vessels, performed 819 pumpouts and properly disposed of an estimated 10,885 gallons of sewage.  The pumpout boat will come to any marina or mooring in Danvers and pump out your vessel free of charge.
