I just wanted to thank you and the crew at Front Street for being so patient with us as we got the Shearwater ready for another fishing year! Without your understanding we could of never done the job we did on my boat, I'm sure that the hard work will save a lot of problems down the road for us! Thanks again for all!

Most pleased

With a six-month refit at FSS, I was most pleased with the work, responsiveness and communication. Work was completed as promised and within the agreed-upon costs. A good experience.

Word of Mouth

I want to let you know how very satisfied I have been with the work done on the boat these past few winters. Although she is not a 150’ Feadship, she is my 52’ Feadship. I always received the kind of service that you can be proud of and that your customers expect...I will always be honored to pass on that recommendation.

Great Yard and Region

Great yard to work with. Competent staff and great facility. Belfast is a great little town to hang out in. We did some major maintenance work here and would recommend this yard.
