Rhode Island-based Bristol Marine has acquired Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, according to Andy Tyska, president of Bristol Marine. The shipyard joins Bristol Marine’s two other boat yards – one in Bristol, Rhode Island, and the other in Somerset, Massachusetts.

Boothbay Harbor Shipyard, founded in the late-1800s, has serviced all types of vessels throughout its history. Its 700-ton marine railway has braced tall ships, megayachts, tugboats, fishing trawlers, passenger boats, ferries, and Navy and Coast Guard vessels; while its 150-ton railway has accommodated sailing yachts, workboats, schooners and motor vessels. Ongoing projects at the yard include the restoration of the schooner Ernestina Morrissey, the official vessel of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and a National Historic Landmark with a sparred length of 156 feet; and the 171-foot, three-masted tall ship Friendship of Salem, owned by the U.S. National Park Service.

Operations will continue under the leadership of Boothbay Harbor Shipyard Vice President Eric Graves, according to a company statement.
