About Us:

Jordan’s Launch is the only public launch servicing Marblehead Harbor. Our launch boats services the entire length of the main harbor. We run from all public docks including docks at State Street, Commercial Street, Cliff Street, and Parker’s Boatyard. To request a ride, simply hail Jordan’s Launch on a VHF CH. 71 and provide the driver with your location. Launch service is available to the general public for use between public docks and moored boating vessels. Both season passes and single trip passes are available for purchase. Please note that we can only provide service within the main mooring field of Marblehead Harbor.

We currently operate two launches made by Fortier boats, Finn and Huck. They are named after our two black labs!


Rich Jordan started Jordan’s Marine in 1989. Since then, he has been servicing moorings in Marblehead, Salem, and Swampscott harbors. In his over 30 years running Jordan’s Marine, he has noticed the lack of public access to Marblehead Harbor. After many years of planning, Rich started Jordan’s Launch to provide residents and visitors with a public launch service. Jordan’s Launch’s first vessel, Finn, completed construction by Fortier Boats in Somerset, MA in late 2021 and began operations in Marblehead Harbor Spring of 2022. Our second boat, Huck, will be in operation during the 2024 season.
