Marinas.com has notified the City of Paducah that Paducah’s Transient Boat Dock is a recipient of the 2018 Boaters’ Choice Award. This is the second consecutive year for Paducah to receive the award which honors marinas and docks that consistently provide an excellent home for the boating community.
According to Marinas.com, 217 marinas/docking facilities are being honored for going the extra mile in 2018 for boaters. The Boaters’ Choice Award is based on reviews by boaters. To be recognized, each facility had to receive at least three reviews averaging a rating of four or more stars out of five stars.
City Manager Jim Arndt says, “I appreciate all of the boaters who took the time to submit their reviews. As we work each day to achieve our new mission statement of being the best city in the world, we value the information we receive from citizens and tourists about our amenities and services. The Transient Boat Dock is an amazing facility that is garnering much attention from boaters who look forward to stopping in Paducah. This recognition by marinas.com makes me proud of Paducah.”
Parks & Recreation Department Director Mark Thompson says, “I enjoy reading the reviews from boaters who visit Paducah’s Transient Boat Dock. They are explorers who enjoy not only the time they spend on the river but also their time in the various ports. Boaters truly enjoy visiting Paducah, walking downtown, and exploring our various businesses. We are giving them a destination that they want to visit time and time again. They also spread the word to their friends in the boating community about what Paducah has to offer.”
Below are a couple of the reviews posted by boaters who enjoyed Paducah’s amenities in 2018.

Paducah’s 340-foot long Transient Boat Dock is located downstream from the heart of historic downtown Paducah and provides space for transient boaters to enjoy Paducah by spending a few hours or several nights. Amenities include fuel (diesel and marine grade gasoline) and power pedestals. The availability of water and the sewer pumpout station are seasonal with both of those amenities currently drained and winterized to prevent the freezing of pipes.
