Integrity, Knowledge and Skill

Our team, and the quality of their work is why our sail and power boat customers are so loyal to Gamage Shipyard. It’s why we hire people with the highest levels of personal integrity, knowledge and technical skill. We believe the quality of our staff is what keeps our customers coming back year after year. 

And, it doesn’t hurt to be in one of the most beautiful places on Maine’s coast, either. 

Quality Boat Service

Gamage Shipyard provides the highest level of quality service for all types of vessels. Our refit and restoration team understands the special relationship boat owners have with their boats. General Manager, Mike Tatro and his specialists have a well earned reputation for being superb craftsmen; creating beautiful work that is to be admired. Whether it’s engines, electronics, mechanical systems, carpentry or finish, you can be assured the work on your boat will be completed to the highest standard.

A Beautiful Location

Gamage Shipyard is perfectly located in a protected cove, the Gut, in South Bristol Maine. The terrain is spectacularly beautiful and the cove is ideally positioned for an easy jaunt to Monhegan, Boothbay, or Penobscot Bay.  

Whatever You Need

We boast complete waterfront facilities, full service seasonal slips and moorings, gas & diesel, a marina with all the amenities including showers, laundry and wi-fi. We're a Yanmar dealership and we have experienced mechanics, electronics and electricians on staff.

Be Where You Want To Be - On The Water

By making Gamage Shipyard your home port, you are where you want to be - on the water.  Our staff will make your time on land enjoyable and comfortable with the goal of giving you as much time on the water as possible. 


We are very proud of ‘our’ boat yard.

You may be sure that I will make my recommendations regarding “Harvey’s” (Gamage’s) Shipyard. I have had horror stories with other yards but total satisfaction with “Harvey” and his yard/people. Another boat and back to Gamage’s.

By the way, both my dad and I are very pleased with Gamage’s service – thanks again for making boat ownership so easy.

The boat looks great…The cabin sole, reefer, and wiring jobs are all first rate.

Over the years I have owned various boats and have worked with several Maine boatyards.  While my experiences have generally been good, Gamage Shipyard stands out and has earned my loyalty. They have done great work on my boat when others were reluctant to even tackle the projects. They stand behind their work and their pricing.  It's like family when I'm up there. I don't plan to go anywhere else.


We’ve been taking our boat here for a couple years. Gamage has been everything we’ve hoped for – friendly and prompt customer service, timely and professional work, easy invoicing, and even seasonal commission checklists in the mail. It’s been a great experience. We trust our boats will run well and plan on taking them here for many years to come.
