About Guilford Boat Yards:

Guilford Boat Yards is located on the West River at Route 146, 230 Water St. Guilford. North of the railroad bridge and well protected from the west by the knoll, Guilford Boat Yards is a friendly place to keep your boat with beautiful views of the salt marsh and the West River. The Yard is an easy and level half-mile walk from downtown Guilford and the historic Guilford Green.


Our History:

Starting about 1733, shipyards and wooden-boat building began on the knoll. Shipbuilding continued through the late 1950s.

Today GBY is a Platinum Mercury Dealer, providing and repairing outboard and I/O engines. We are also an Alumacraft Dealer providing boats like jon boats and aluminum boats with outboard motors.


So please stop by and take a look at all we have to offer. We have a full service repair shop, fixing boats up to 35 feet long. We haul, winterize, store and launch. Come in and see the tradition of customer service and satisfaction at work.
