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.
