Boat Services

Be it routine maintenance, emergency repair or a major refit, the drive for mechanical, glassing, painting and detailing excellence in our yard is second to none.

Mechanical Services
Our mechanical services staff has deep expertise across a variety of gas, diesel, inboard and outboard engines including but not limited to Yamaha, Yanmar, Mercury, Volvo, Westerbeke and Crusader marine engines.
Fiberglass Services
Whether dealing with a ding in your gelcoat, dock or grounding damage, wet core replacement or glassing in a refit, we have in-depth understanding of what it takes to get fiberglass work done right.
Painting Services
From preparation right through to completion, we understand the driving purposes of a marine paint job: vessel preservation and pride in appearance.
Detailing Services
Although many boat owners take pride and pleasure in performing most chores associated with vessel upkeep, rarely is detailing among these tasks.
Maintenance Services
We also provide complete seasonal and scheduled maintenance services.


Our safe, easily-accessed boat yard provides winter storage and storage services for boats up to 46′.
Trailered boats can be stored and launched in season as well.

About Brown’s Boatyard

Nestled among the salt marshes just inside the mouth of Guilford, CT’s West River, a visit to Brown’s Boat Yard can feel like a trip back in time.
It could be the location, situated between two state parks on the central north shore of Long Island Sound.

It could be the weather-worn buildings which imply an enduring quality and character.

Or it just might be the people at Brown’s Boat Yard, who favor conversation and connection over polished topsiders and starched button-down shirts. Whatever it is, our small marina and boatyard offers the visitor a rustic, practical and picturesque experience.
