Since 1962...

Mattapoisett Boat Yard, located on scenic Mattapoisett Harbor, is a complete service facility with a friendly, informal atmosphere. Previously Burr Brothers Boats, we have been family owned and operated since 1962. We are the only true waterfront Yard in the harbor making this one of the most convenient places to store and moor your boat. Plus, our facility is far away from the Cape Cod traffic, about one hour driving distance from the greater Boston area.

Mattapoisett Boatyard provides all aspects of service and repairs to most types and sizes of recreational watercraft, from daysailers to 50' motoryachts. Our highly skilled and formally trained technicians are ready to tackle anything from basic maintenance and repair to extensive fiberglass work. We pride ourselves on getting the job done quickly and efficiently and in the most professional manner possible. All of our work is guaranteed to meet (and usually) exceed your expectations! Our estimates are fair and we stick to them.

At MBY, you are the customer. We fully realize that the boating season is short. Who doesn’t want another sunny weekend on the water? We will do everything we can to get you up and running to minimize any down time. We all realize that boats require maintenance and sometimes minor or major repairs. We are looking out for you, always working to make your experience as hassle free and cost effective as we can.

Most of our customers have been with us well over 10 years, many over 25 years! We have more than 30 boat owners who have stored and maintained their vessels for more than 40 years! If you have not already come to realize, our customers are the best! We treat everyone with the same level of respect and distinction, no matter what the size of their boat.

Our employees are the true backbone to our operation. Most have been in the business for over 20 years! All of them are professionals to the end. Whether it’s a painter doing the brightwork, the guy sanding the bottom, the mechanic tweaking the electrical system or the one in the Tyvek suit grinding fiberglass, you can be assured each will work and perform with the most courteous and expert manner.

Mattapoisett Boatyard's Inland Yard stores as many as 150 boats in a secure, 2.5 acre lot located at 52 Marion Rd, Rt. 6, about 3/4 mile from our waterfront facility. We acquired this second storage lot in 1999 to accommodate more of our seasonal mooring customers. We also store a number of boats here during the summer months that are for sale or not being used that year. We can store all of the trailers for smaller sail and powerboats to keep more room for parking at our main yard on Ned's Point Rd. We perform all of our regular services at both locations.

Most boats that are for sale are stored at our Inland Yard for better access and visibility. All listings are through Mattapoisett Yacht Sales, Tad Morse, broker. He can be reached at 508-243-8226, or by clicking this link to his website

There is easy access to water and electricity. There is a full service sail loft and canvas maker on the second floor of the main building, Eastern Sailmakers, who will be happy to take care of all of your sail, canvas, cover and cushion needs. Give Ron or Silvia White a call at 508-758-3741.
