Retrofitting Power and Sailing Boats Up to 200 feet
At Front Street Shipyard we’re well equipped to refit boats big and small. Our shop space accommodates vessels as long as 160 feet, and we’re currently planning construction of a sixth building on the waterfront where we’ll have the capacity to house even larger superyachts for major refits. We have one of the only facilities on the East Coast where boat building and service work on oversized yachts can be performed indoors.
Front Street Shipyard has the lifting capacity to match our shop space. In 2013 we invested in a 485-ton hoist, which complements our 165-ton Travelift and our 60-ton mobile trailer. Our success comes from more than just our facility and equipment, though; it’s derived from the talent of our exceptional in-house team that operates all of it.
Our staff of more than 100 professionals are adept in composites, carpentry, ABS-certified metalwork, coatings, finishes, systems, electronics and — most importantly — integration of everything throughout a yacht.Through our experience with superyachts, commercial yachts and racing sailboats, we’ve honed our abilities to marry metals, woods and composites in a single vessel to ensure integrity and strength in hulls, decks, hardware and key stress points. We fabricate custom parts for yachts when off-the-shelf items don’t fit the requirements, sizing or aesthetics of the vessel. Every part we produce matches the quality of the yacht for which it was custom crafted.
