Conveniently located at the head of Boothbay Harbor, Bristol Marine’s The SHIPYARD, formerly Sample’s Shipyard, was founded in 1869. Continuing local shipbuilding tradition, the yard specializes in the maritime skills and trades that made New England famous.

Its 700-ton & 150-ton marine railways have braced tall ships, superyachts, tugboats, fishing trawlers, Coast Guard vessels, sailing yachts, workboats, schooners, motor vessels and more. The 6,000-sf climate controlled service bay is equipped with a state-of-the-art humidification system for wooden boat storage. A low-dust environment is ideal for yacht-quality varnishing and painting.

Services include: Metalwork, Mechanical, Wooden Boat Building, Restoration Services, Hauling/Launching, Painting/Fiberglass, Winter Storage, 350’ dock with floats, and 25 moorings for seasonal & transient visitors.
