Gamage Shipyard Restoration

“Over the years I have owned various boats and have worked with several Maine boatyards. While my experiences have generally been good, Gamage Shipyard stands out and has earned my loyalty. They have done great work on my boat when others were reluctant to even tackle the projects. They stand behind their work and their pricing. It’s like family when I’m up there. I don’t plan to go anywhere else.”
