There are no strangers here, just friends you haven't met yet.

Mattapoisett Boatyard, 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.

Understanding the short New England boating season, we're dedicated to maximizing your time on the water. Our proactive approach aims to minimize downtime, ensuring your vessel is ready when you are. Recognizing the inevitable need for maintenance and repairs, we focus on delivering an efficient, cost-effective service experience.

Our client relationships, some spanning over four decades, speak volumes about the trust and satisfaction we foster. At MBY, every customer is special, receiving the same level of dedication and attention.

Our exceptional team, many with over two decades in the industry, forms the backbone of our operations. From meticulous painters to skilled mechanics, each member is a professional in their field, ensuring every task is executed with precision and courtesy.

We operate three storage and maintenance locations allowing us to haul and store up to 325 boats during the off-season. We do allow owners to perform much of their own work. Of course, we offer full service, maintenance and repair and can perform as much or as little as you request.
