Maine shipyard to expand facility

ADVERTISEMENT

Front Street Shipyard in Belfast, Maine, has secured financing to begin construction of a new facility adjacent to its existing yard on the Belfast waterfront. The shipyard intends to build a 22,500-square-foot building on the property to accommodate large yacht refits and commercial vessel construction projects.

Construction is expected to begin immediately on the facility, known as Building 6, according to a statement from the shipyard. Front Street Shipyard’s 485-ton hoist is the largest in northern New England, and Building 6 will be tall enough to allow the hoist to drive boats inside, maximizing space and reducing the need for additional support equipment, according to the shipyard. The facility is expected to be ready this fall.

Front Street Shipyard

The existing marina and workspaces at Front Street Shipyard will operate uninterrupted during the construction.

The yard currently provides dockage, repairs and storage for recreational and commercial vessels up to 200 feet, with hauling capacity for vessels up to 485 tons, There is deep-water access for power and sailing vessels, from small boats to superyachts. Services range from engine and systems maintenance to carpentry and advanced composite construction work,  For more information, visit frontstreetshipyard.com.
