Georgetown Yacht Basin hosts a wide variety of boaters. Generally speaking, our facility has around 40% sail and 60% power boats. We are proud to have a diverse group of friendly, family oriented customers, many of whom are 2nd generation boaters on the Sassafras River.
The Sassafras River is a naturally deep fresh water river. Within the channel you will encounter water no less than ten feet in depth. This is why GYB can offer superb deep-water dockage on the majority of our docks.
The mean tide for the Sassafras River is 2-3 feet.
The Sassafras River winds seven beautiful miles to the Chesapeake Bay.

GYB offers dinghy storage racks at several locations around the facility free of charge to annual slip holders. Dinghy storage operates on a first-come, first-served basis.
