Host Club Info Boothbay Harbor RendezvousThe lead sponsor and host of the 2012 Boothbay Harbor Renezvous is Boothbay Harbor Shipyard.
Boothbay Harbor Shipyard, formerly Sample's Shipyard, was founded more than 135 years ago. Continuing a local shipbuilding tradition, the yard specializes in the maritime skills and trades that made New England famous. Its 700-ton marine railway has braced tall ships, superyachts, tugboats, fishing trawlers, Coast Guard vessels and other service craft such as passenger boats and ferries. The 150-ton railway has accommodated sailing yachts, workboats, schooners and motor vessels. Conveniently located at the head of Boothbay Harbor in mid-coast Maine, the shipyard offers a complete range of marine-related repairs and services for all vessel types.
Within walking distance of downtown Boothbay Harbor and minutes from local marinas and lodging facilities, Boothbay Harbor Shipyard is the perfect location to host the Rendez-vous’ pre and post festivities. The Shipyard also provides a panoramic view of the inner bay serving as the ideal back-drop for viewing the local youth sailor’s practice session on 420 class boats later that afternoon. The net proceeds de-rived from this Rendezvous will help keep our local youth on the water while promoting the amateur sport of sailing.
