About Front Street Shipyard


Established 2011

Welcome to the most capable and versatile boatyard in northern New England. Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, is a yacht yard, marina and storage facility on Penobscot Bay with an expansive facility and broad capabilities. We cater to the needs of every type of vessel ranging from small recreational boats to commercial vessels and superyachts.

We founded Front Street Shipyard to create a place in Maine where yachts of all sizes from all over the world can get the best possible service and attention. Maine has long been a renowned boatbuilding mecca where some of the best talent internationally is located. Those craftspeople now have a facility large enough and capable enough to accommodate some of the greatest yachts currently sailing. Front Street Shipyard is an expansive, thriving yard with deep-water frontage, state-of-the-art equipment and a forward-thinking workforce.

The cornerstone of Front Street Shipyard is our depth and breadth of experience in boatbuilding, restoration and refits. We take on new sophisticated projects for yachts as large as 200 feet. Our construction and systems teams uphold the highest of standards for service and craftsmanship on all types of yachts. They maintain extensive dealer networks, ensuring their expertise with a range of engines, electronics and systems.

Front Street Shipyard is a collaboration of expertise and insight. From classic wood techniques to progressive composite solutions, the capabilities span decades of boatbuilding experience and research. To our team at Front Street Shipyard, each yacht is unique and ripe with possibility. There is only one consistency maintained throughout each build and refit: the exceptionally high quality of the end product, both aesthetically and functionally.
