About Us

We are proud to provide all of the amenities of a full-service marina combined with a boat building heritage established on Cape Cod way back in 1850. In continuous operation for over 165 years, we are one of the oldest and widely recognized boat yards on the Eastern seaboard. Our modern 35,000-square-foot climate controlled repair and storage facility offers a year round environment for excellence in all manner of service, repair, maintenance and restorations. In addition to being an authorized dealer for Southport Boats, Crosby Yacht Yard specializes in both wooden and fiberglass vessel repair and maintenance. Building vessels of quality and distinction for the multiple generations since the Yard’s inception, we are proud to have modern day craftsmen continue this tradition with our line of custom built craft including the Crosby Striper, Crosby Yacht Club, Crosby Wianno Senior, Crosby Canyon 30 and the Hawk 29. 

As a marina, we maintain dockage and mooring accommodations for both seasonal and transient rentals, a ship store, our fuel dock offering Valve-Tec products which is open seven days a week in season, and more.  Whether you’re on the Cape for a weekend or an entire summer, we would be honored to have you pay us a visit.
