The Essex Harbormaster rents out transient moorings during the boating season for a fee of $25.00 dollars (Check only) per day. Reservations can be made by contacting the Police Chief Peter Silva at 978-768-6628 ext 12.
We have two new moorings which are in very close proximity to the town dock at Conomo Point. We also have one near the back side of Crane's Beach near Hog Island (where the movie The Crucible was filmed).
Take a bike with you and you will have a short ride in to town where you have a large selection of fine restaurants, antique stores to peruse for treasures, or check out the history of shipbuilding at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum at the Town Landing.
These are excellent moorings which are in high demand during the season. Whether you are coming for the day, or you are looking to stay a week or two, you can't find a better location for beaching at Crane's Beach, fishing, or just relaxing on the mooring in paradise with the most incredible views that this area has to offer."
