Bradford Marine’s commitment to excellence and impressive facilities give our customers the finest in quality and service for yacht repair and refit. With over forty years experience, this full service yacht yard has become one of the premier yacht service yards in the world. While Bradford Marine was still under development in 1967, the Company hauled out its first megayacht, the 130 foot Fontainebleau II. The haul out & lift department used our 300 ton Synchrolift marine elevator and has hauled out thousands of the world’s finest yachts of up to 150 feet in length since then. Using the side carriage transfer system, Bradford Marine can provide over 1,000 linear feet of drydock space.

In addition to its lifting capacity, Bradford Marine also has one of the world’s largest in-water, undercover repair and refit facilities. Our covered slips can handle vessels up to 180 feet. Our 11,000 linear feet of slips and service bays means that whatever the weather’s doing, Bradford Marine can always deliver its repairs on time, as well as provide customers covered storage while their vessels are being repaired. We also can provide long-term covered storage should you desire. Our Dockmaster’s department can arrange all your storage needs.

Bradford Marine’s shipyard work force is made up of the industry’s fully trained craftsmen and technicians. They work with top state-of-the-art equipment and tools to provide the very best in service. Our Machine Shop, for example, is equipped to make propeller shafts and possesses the latest in optical alignment gear to make sure they run true.
