The Hudson River Maritime Museum has been awarded the 2017 Boaters' Choice award, given to the top two percent of marinas in the nation. Selected out 8,000 participants, HRMM was one of 152 marinas in the country to win the annual award. The Boaters’ Choice Award is given to marinas that receive an average of four-star reviews given by boating customers.

In 2017, the Museum welcomed approximately 6,000 visitors to Kingston onboard private vessels, tall ships, cruise ships, and tour boats by way of the Hudson River. The museum waterfront was also one of the last major stops for the Spanish Galleon replica, El Galeon Andalucia, which attracted an additional 5,000 visitors to the Rondout.

The Maritime Museum’s waterfront boasts over 500 feet of transient dock space on the protected waters of the Rondout Creek, located in the heart of Kingston’s Historic Rondout District. All of the volunteer-built docks are constructed to commercial vessel standards and can accommodate ships up to 270 feet long. With a depth of 16 feet and no height restriction at the docks, it is the perfect location for large vessels traveling on the Hudson River.

Overnight visitors have access to many amenities including shore power, water, wifi, showers, restrooms, and free admission to the Maritime Museum and Riverport Wooden Boat School. Future plans for the waterfront include; new washer/dryer and shower facilities for boaters, more powerful wifi, ADA access to docks, continued Kingston Point Lighthouse Tours, and all online booking for reservations. The museum’s location also provides prime access for visitors to shops, restaurants, outdoor recreation, and cultural experiences all within walking distance
