Fairhaven Shipyard Companies is located on Buzzards Bay, in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, which is in the harbor of the historic working port of New Bedford. Protected by a hurricane barrier, we provide safe, convenient dockage for all of our customers. In addition to transient or seasonal dockage, we offer a full-range of shipyard services. On property, we have our own machine shop, comprehensive paint facility, multi-brand engine shop with factory trained mechanics, electrical department, welding/metal fabrication department, service and parts, and travel-lifts to haul your vessel. We are also partnered with East Coast Boat Carpenters to meet any joinery needs. Furthermore, Fairhaven Shipyard has the capability to build your next new workboat.
Our customers' vessels include some of the most sophisticated yachts and commercial boats in the world, along with classic wooden schooners and commercial fishing boats. This broad range gives us the experience and expertise to make our company well versed in handling all your boating needs.
Two young men waved us on for docking....halfway tied us up and left. Turns out we needed to be in the spot backwards in order to hook up to shore power. My wife and I spun the boat, tied it up and hooked up to shore power ourselves.
Fairhaven Shipyard makes it easy...good communication, help waiting for us on the dock upon arrival, and a clean, welcoming facility. We enjoy walking to Fort Phoenix State Park where there is a nice beach and you can watch the boats come and go from the harbor. We enjoyed a superb meal at nearby Elisabeth's Restaurant.
Beautiful marina! Quick walk to restaurants. The Marina is immaculate and the Staff is very welcoming! We will be back next year!
Easy slips to get into & out of, dock hands couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, smooth water in the harbor even when it was blowing in Buzzards Bay. Doughnuts in the morning were a great touch too.
Friendly and helpful staff. Good directions and help upon arrival. Facilities were a little rustic.
