Full Service Boat Yard
Full/Half Hauls 25 Ton Travel Lift
Our newer and reliable travel lift effortlessly handles most boats up to 42-50′, making your boat hauling or launching experience as smooth as possible, leaving you with a worry-free mindset throughout the entire process. Our operators have a minimum of 5 years’ experience operating the lift in order to prepare boats to be hauled. We offer full haul-outs and half haul outs, depending on the need of our client. Our in-house travel lift symbiotically aids the entire process of our brokerage, making in that much easier, on you, to sell and list your boat with Essex Marina & Boat Sales.
Our one-stop-shop takes the hassle out bottom work; from zincs to bottom paint, we have it covered. The boatyard section of Essex Marina specializes in using Maryland Clean Marina Guidelines to give you the same impressively smooth and clean bottom while taking the necessary procedures to ensure that our #1 resource, the Chesapeake Bay, stays as clean as possible. We typically recommend, when redoing your bottom, to have it power washed, sanded smooth, and painted at least once per year, typically in the Spring. Unlike other Boatyards, we ensure that 100% of your bottom is painted and protected.
Essex Marina uses the most skilled and experienced fiberglass technicians, with over 30 years of experience in the field, to make the necessary structural and cosmetic repairs to leave your boat looking and feeling stronger than when it was new.
