Incredible Service

We have 2 service vessels: 27’ Converted U.S. Army Bridge erection vessel, equipped with twin diesel engines, capable of setting up to 6000 lb blocks and able to reach shallow areas. Our second and main service vessel is a 23’ Pacific Skiff equipped with several capabilities to provide a wide array of services. Aquidneck Mooring Company (AMC) services over 600 moorings throughout Narragansett Bay including Newport, Middletown, Portsmouth, Jamestown, Bristol, Tiverton, Little Compton and more. We have the solution to your mooring problems and needs. Our number one priority is making sure your mooring is safe. When AMC services your mooring, it is checked, measured and recorded on a regular basis. As a family run business since 1995, AMC has built a distinguished reputation for honesty and customer satisfaction. We offer traditional Mushroom anchors, Ferro-cement block systems and newer technologies such as Helix Embedment Anchors and the Hazelett Elastic Conservation Mooring System. AMC also offers custom designed and in-house manufactured mooring pennants and other products.
