About


Previously known as a Brewer Yacht Yard facility, Dauntless Shipyard is now proudly owned and operated by Safe Harbor Marinas after the two companies merged in 2017. The Shipyard is located in protected North Cove, just off the CT River. Along with the shipyard facility, there are also 100 floating docks that can accommodate recreational boats from 20’ to 100’, and are outfitted with 30 and 50 amp power, water, cable and free WiFi.

Dauntless Shipyard, c.1917, was named for the schooner Dauntless, one of the late-1800s America's Cup yachts. The shipyard developed a strong reputation building many wooden vessels until the late 1930s. The shipyard's focus then turned to yacht maintenance, which it continues to do today along with its marina operation.

Approach


Proceed up the Connecticut River past marker "R26" located in the vicinity of the Essex mooring field. On your port side, you will note two sets of yellow channel (local) markers, the northern pair marking the channel into Dauntless Shipyard. Proceed westward in the northern channel, past the two other marinas, and you will see Dauntless Shipyard directly ahead of you. Hail us on VHF channel 9, prior to entering the inner channel.

Had a great time At Dauntless Shipyard. Essex was fun to explore. The pool was quiet and comfortable. The restaurant had a great view of the yard and the food was great. The yard staff person did a great job.
