About the Area

In 1642, Samuel Gorton founded Shawhommet, when Narragansett Indian Chief Sachem Miantonomi agreed to accept 144 fathoms of Wampumpeague for the state’s fourth settlement. However, the purchase was not without dispute, and after several years, in 1648, the 2nd Earl of Warwick finally granted a charter. The settlement was named ‘Warwick’ in his honor. Today, Warwick is Rhode Island’s second largest city. It’s natural beauty, historical significance and metropolitan climate attract visitors—by water and land. Sitting midpoint between Boston, Martha's Vineyard, Cape Cod, Hartford, and Newport, Warwick is positioned at the "Crossroads of Southern New England." T.F. Green Airport is a short drive from our yard and the nearby train station provides easy access to Boston & New York City. Warwick is home to the Warwick Arts Consortium & Warwick Museum, which are wonderful places to explore while visiting. Nearby Providence offers a wide variety of cultural, musical, touring and dining opportunities. The sheltered waters of Greenwich Bay are a great place for families to play and explore. An entire summer can be spent exploring Narragansett Bay, with the local attractions of Bristol, Potter’s Cove, Dutch Island, Allen’s Harbor, Wickford Cove and Mackerel Cove all within easy sailing distance. Some of the best cruising grounds in New England, including Newport, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, Cape Cod, the Elizabeth Islands, and Block Island, are all within easy access to Safe Harbor's Greenwich Bay Marina.

  • ABBRA—American Boat Builders & Repairers Association
  • ABYC—American Boat & Yacht Council
  • Rhode Island Marine Trade Association

Cowesett Marina is a full-service boat yard and marina. While capable of addressing almost any marine repair or modification, we have a long, successful record of re-powering, custom yacht interiors structural fiberglass repair, and high quality hull finishes. We are also credited for being friendly and very customer service oriented.

For those with work to do on their boats, our staff of mechanics, riggers, carpenters and painters can accomplish just about any project you propose—or we can just advise you on your do-it-yourself projects.


The buildings are carefully maintained and climate-controlled, allowing us to efficiently and comfortably service boats year-round. We manage and maintain over 400 yachts, with assistance from our 40 and 50-ton travel lifts and jib crane, a 35-ton hydraulic trailer, a forklift, and mobile crane.

Our four man mechanical team is very experienced and enjoys an excellent reputation. This fully certified crew has demonstrated strength for engine repowers, but is also well versed in running gear service, sanitation systems upgrades, fuel system replacement, and bow thruster and windlass installations. In addition, this crew attends service schools and in-house seminars annually, thus staying up-to-date on ever evolving and increasingly complex marine technologies.

Throughout the region, our finish department constantly receives high recommendations, even by local surveyors and insurance adjusters. For this reason, Safe Harbor’s Cowesett Marina has become the place to go for major structural repairs and Awlgrip paint jobs. This crew is also fully capable of fabricating parts and molds, replacing bulkheads, and tackling most projects or challenges that come our way.

ABYC-certified electrical technicians can install navigational packages, update wiring systems, or supply power to bow and stern thrusters. We always adhere to the highest industry standards.

Our talented, two man crew manages projects that include everything from teak deck installations to built-in custom cabinetry.

Offering a full spectrum of services, our riggers can clean and service winches, replace lifelines and running rigging, rewire masts, and dye testing shrouds. We also offer rack storage for masts in the off-season.
