Year-Round Attractions and Services
A year-round spot awaits you, your family, and your vessel at EIM. Join the EIM family when you tuck into your
slip and meet your neighbors at the annual Seasonal Party held in early June.
During the late Spring, Summer, and Fall you can enjoy the best of the Connecticut River and Shoreline in the slip
of your choice first come, first serve. Every season promises something special to remember.
May Market, Burning of the Ships Parade, Memorial Day Parade, Rotary Club Shad Bake.
Hot Steamed Jazz Festival, Ivoryton Playhouse, Concert in the Park on Wednesday nights, Lions Club Lobster and Steak Bake, Hamburg and Chester Fairs.
Foliage trips up and down the river, Festifall, Ivoryton Pumpkin Festival, Halloween Parade on Main Street, Trees in the Rigging
Holiday Boat Parade.
And there is fine dining (dozens of award-winning restaurants within a 20 minute drive), the Goodspeed Opera House and
Goodspeed at Chester, arts and antiques, picturesque landscapes, and so much more no matter what the season may be.
Our permanent Guests are extended the courtesy of first right of refusal for their slip from year to year. We also offer
a storage/dockage package please contact our main office for details.
When it comes time to put the fleet to bed for the winter, our Guests then entrust Lenny and the crew of
Sea Bound Marine to decommission and shore up for a few months. Whether the owner
chooses to have the yard maintain the vessel or prefers to tinker in his (or her) spare time, your yacht will be safe
and secure while the fury of the New England winter knocks on our door. Please feel free to cross the bridge and visit
your boat during the winter a hot lunch at the “Gris” or the “Seal” will warm you up again.
Holiday shopping, Essex Ed on Groundhog’s Day, and the Winter Festival and Eagle Watch keep Main Street hopping
even when there’s a chill in the air.
