Boat Storage & Winterization

With transportation from the boat yard to the ferry or mainland provided, we make your boat storage convenient, hassle-free and secure.

Our seven storage buildings each have different qualities, giving us the optimum storage conditions for all kinds of boats. We have the dry storage for fiberglass boats or a moist environment perfect for wooden boats. Our crew members are experienced and dedicated to giving you problem-free boating. We have an extensive dry-stack storage area for small powerboats, sailboats and dinghies; while the larger yachts are hauled on a railway and stored under cover.


Proper winterization and storage for your boat is essential in harsh Maine winters. When you store your boat in Dark Harbor Boat Yard’s indoor storage facility, we’ll have your boat ready and in peak condition the day you’re ready to launch.


We’re located on a private island making our indoor storage facility the safest place around to store you boat through the winter months.


We’re just a short boat ride away from with Islesboro and Lincolnville. Store your boat with us and and we’ll be happy to pick you up or take you back. Just give us a call and we’ll make the arrangements!
