Welcoming Existing and New Friends to the Harbor

Summer at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard has always been a time to see old friends and make new ones. This year we were kept busy by a steady flow of owners looking to have tasks large and small completed while cruising through the delights available along Maine’s coastline.

August 3rd was the day! We transformed the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard into something as close to Camelot as possible. Pot O' Gold a 1929 Consolidated commuter and Ibis our 1904 New York 30 (once owned by J P Morgan) were rolled out as our two prize vessels and backdrops for the festivities. Old boats served as cocktail and serving tables. Our antique walls rang with drollery.The New York Yacht Club, with 100 vessels and 500 members came to the Boothbay Harbor Shipyard for the start of their 2007 annual cruise. The skipper's meeting, the cocktail party and the lights twinkling on the harbor from some of the most well known yachts in the world made the whole occasion-. . . well, like Camelot.
