Welcome to Handy Boat, one of Maine’s premier boat yards, located in the heart of Casco Bay.

We have been building, reparing, maintaining and storing boats of various sizes and shapes. Our crew is made up of people who love boats and boating and are enthusiastic about taking care of your vessel. Our mission is to provide quality work at an affordable price to our customers. Located on some of the best east coast cruising coastline, Handy Boat is a logical destination for an overnight stay or an extended layover. See this 12 minute video and see what we mean.

Our year round crew of skilled mechanics, riggers, fiberglass technicians, painters and carpenters are ready to meet your needs and expectations. We are dealers for Westerbeke, Universal and Yanmar engines and are members of the Maine Marine Trades Association and the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association.

During the summer months our staff of dock attendants and launch drivers keep the waterfront operations running smoothly. Transient moorings, ice, water, gas and diesel fuel are available at the dock. You can enjoy a lunch or dinner at the Dockside Grill located at the head of the pier. Near by the Falmouth Village offers: grocery stores, movie theaters, book stores and department stores as well as the usual fleet of fast food restaurants. Located only 5 miles north of Portland (Maine’s largest City) we are close to busses, trains, rental cars and the Portland Jetport.
