Finestkind Boatyard History

In 1981, with the summer cruising season ever extending, the owners of Finestkind Scenic Cruises, in Ogunquit, Maine, decided to expand the realm of their operation. A trusted name in coastal Maine cruises since 1956, business was booming and more business meant less time to maintain their four wooden cruise boats.

The search began for an ample, shorefront parcel that afforded enough room for outdoor boat storage and a large workshop to facilitate custom repairs and renovations to the Finestkind boats. After careful inspection of numerous properties and much deliberation, they selected the ideal location, along the shores of Basin Cove in South Harpswell.

More than thirty-five years have passed and Finestkind Boatyard has flourished. In addition to providing a winter home for the Finestkind cruise boats, the yard now cares for more than 120 boats.
