Magazine: Fairfield Harbour, New Bern among Top 10 boating towns

Posted: Updated:
NEW BERN, N.C. -

Fairfield Harbour and New Bern are among the communities recognized as two of the top 10 boating towns in the United States for retirement.

Boat U.S. magazine selected the colonial capital because of its ideal location with easy access to the Neuse River, Trent River and Pamlico Sound. It noted that New Bern offers retiring boaters ample recreational opportunities, picturesque historic homes and an involved community life.

Fairfield Harbour earned its mention in part due to its three marinas on the Intracoastal Waterway. It also offers boaters with some of the best access points for deep water on the east coast. The community has also completed extensive electrical and water renovations at its Shoreline and Birdland marinas to ensure they meet the needs of all users.

"It is no surprise that New Bern is named in the top 10 best boating towns in the United States," said Mystre' Van Horn, on-site community manager for Fairfield Harbour. "With easy access to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina, boaters flock to the area, including the marinas in Fairfield Harbour. We are proud to call New Bern our home, and we welcome all who want to enjoy the fantastic boating lifestyle the town has to offer."

"I'm not surprised that the New Bern and Fairfield Harbour area was named as a top 10 boating town," said Larry Knapp, president of the Fairfield Harbour board of directors. "The local boating and fishing was a major factor in my decision to move here. Having a boat in the backyard with easy access to the Neuse River, Trent River and Pamlico Sound in addition to New Bern's waterfront restaurants is a perk to living in this great community."
