MARBLEHEAD WATERFRONT CRIME WATCH
Marblehead Harbor, an established yachting and fishing community, has seen an increase in water activity. It is one of the busiest harbors on the North Shore, with over 2,000 moorings located within its waters. Situated 17 miles from Boston and east of Salem, it contains 14.2 miles of tidal shoreline.
The Harbormaster Department is the law enforcement authority for the harbor and also maintains the public piers, floats, launching ramps and sewer pump-out facilities. Visiting yachts are always welcome. When needing float space, mooring provisions, medical services or any other assistance, they should call the "Marblehead Harbormaster" on VHF Channel 16, or the Harbormaster Office (617)631-2386.
