Updated: Feb 13
As a lifelong resident of the Connecticut Shoreline, it comes with great pleasure to shine light on a hidden gem within our local community. Growing up in and around the boating & fishing world, I have always been drawn to marinas and all that comes with that space. The distinct sights, sounds and smells are truly part of the lifestyle that is enjoyed by many, including myself. As a commercial real estate professional, it comes as no surprise that a large area of focus and specialization in my business is the acquisition and disposition of marina properties. With that in mind, I’d like to share with you Riverside Basin Marina located at 41-49 Riverside Drive in Clinton, Connecticut.
Riverside Basin Marina (RBM) is a 9.7 acre marine opportunity located on the New England Coastline that has been a family-owned and operated business for many years. The marina is located about halfway between New York City and Boston, 30 minutes from New Haven and just under an hour from Hartford. The marina is ideally situated in a weather-protected inlet with access near the mouth of the Hammonasset River. The geographic position of the marina offers unequal protection from hurricanes and major storms, as well as the distinct, natural beauty of the Hammonasset area that is quite hard to duplicate.
Whether powerboat or sailboat, Riverside Basin Marina is a great place to call “home”. The marina offers a total of 160 wet slips, accommodating vessels ranging from roughly 18’ to 40’ in length. At approximately 3,400 square feet of commercial space, the property also includes clean restrooms, an office, parts store, bait shop, repair shop & garage, along with additional storage areas. RBM provides services such as launching, hauling, winterization, shrink wrapping, storing, repair & maintenance work, etc.
Departing from Riverside Basin Marina offers easy access to many popular boating destinations, whether day trips or longer voyages. The Thimble Islands, Norwalk Islands, Long Island, Old Saybrook, Essex, Hamburg Cove, Mystic, Stonington, Fishers Island, Block Island, Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Cape Cod are among the top destinations, just to name a few. Fuel is accessed off-site; however, it is conveniently located while making the trip in or out of Clinton Harbor. Whether going out for a day on the water or relaxing dockside with a copy of The Old Man and the Sea and a Dark ‘N’ Stormy, Riverside Basin Marina offers a wonderful culture and atmosphere that keeps its customers coming back year after year.
I am a Commercial & Investment Real Estate Certified professional with the Seaport Commercial brokerage firm and specialize in the purchase and sale of marina properties. My partner, Tim Bray, and I listed Riverside Basin Marina for sale earlier this year, priced at $1,850,000 and received multiple offers within a very short time after the property went on the market. We are happy to announce that the property is currently in the contract phase with the future owner. Our firm is representing both buyer and seller in the transaction as designated agents. We have grown a large buyer pool for marinas and we look forward to working with many more marina owners in the future.
