New Boat Construction

Since opening in 1962, Rockport Marine has grown in reputation to become a premier builder of wooden boats.

Our projects are varied, and sometimes a modern wood composite racing boat will be built in a bay next to a 16th century carvel-planked square-rigger. We like this work, and the varied challenges it presents.

Please take a look at our projects, or visit us at the shop.

The creative planning and building of Lynx [were the] happiest couple of years of my life! You, your family and staff are outstanding!
