Bannister’s Wharf Co

Bannister’s Wharf was one of the first marinas in Newport - once a host for the America’s Cup Campaign –and continues to host some of the world’s most famous yachts. Bannister’s Wharf is the most coveted deep-water marina located in the center of Newport Harbor.

David Ray, the owner and local figure of Newport has done an amazing job in masterfully restoring this charming place to its former glory and nostalgic atmosphere it enjoys today. Bannister’s Wharf continues to receive excellent feedback for its location and extremely friendly and helpful dock staff.

The dockmaster, Jim McCarthy, is very service oriented. John Bannister established the Wharf in 1742 as a commercial and social lifeline for Colonial Newport and continues to do just that.
