Newport Shipyard

Boatyard / Haul Out

Newport Shipyard is a local institution in Newport, year after year we continue to receive high accolades for the services and facility found at NSY. Known as New England's 'yachting hub', Newport Shipyard is located in the heart of the action, and is within walking distance to great restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Known to many as ‘The Shipyard’, it is a first-class boatyard and haul-out facility with the ability to accommodate monohulls & multihulls with its 500 MT and 100 MT lifts. In 2016, Newport Shipyard will become the host and organizer for the Newport Charter Yacht Show, which will be held in June 21-24. Newport Shipyard, in partnership with David Ray and his team at Bannister’s Wharf, have also become the organizers, and will host the 1st Annual Candy Store Cup (carrying forward the Newport Bucket tradition) in late July. 

Newport Shipyard is trusted within the marine industry to provide premier services with personal attention and responsiveness to visiting yachts and their crew. They have a team of qualified technicians, carpenters and dock staff on hand to offer you one of the very best and most dedicated services available in the industry. The marina can accommodate yachts up to 350’, with a maximum draft 22ft, equipped with 3-phase power up to 400 amps and 480v. Numerous Captains we spoke with, rated Newport Shipyard as a “Five Star World-Class” facility with a great reputation.

The Shipyard sits on 14 acres and features a paint shed and workshops fitted out with the latest technology and machinery. Local onsite craftsmen offer talent and experience in carpentry, paint refinishing, welding / fabrication, mechanical and electrical works. Onsite amenities include: fitness center, Belle’s Café, ship's store, courtesy golf carts, crew housing, ample parking for marina guests and free Shipyard-wide Wi-Fi.

The ship's store carries everything from Awlgrip, cleaning products, filters, sailing gear, sunglasses and sundries. It also provides access to an extensive list of chandlery items through a large directory of marine vendors. Adjacent to the ship’s store, is the ever popular Belle’s Café, featuring an open air grill serving breakfast & lunch daily. Crew favorites include the ‘Slammin' Shipyard Sandwich’ and the ‘Twin Lobster Rolls’… which are always popular in the summer months with outdoor seating overlooking the waterfront.

Since coming into his ownership, Charlie Dana – a charismatic and passionate sailor himself - has been a major influence behind the amazing transformation of an old shipyard into the world renowned Superyacht facility that it is today… enjoyed by the growing list of visiting yachts and year-round residents. Charlie and his son – General Manager Eli - oversee the yard with the assistance of their friendly and helpful dock staff, providing efficient services to all their customers, no matter the type or size of the vessel. Newport Shipyard is worthy of the numerous enthusiastic reviews we received from many Captains and crew again last season, including: “The Shipyard is home, with an awesome staff and friendly environment” “Newport Shipyard - fantastic all-round service” “Excellent Shipyard for all one’s needs” “Newport Shipyard - very good to work with - superb!” “Efficient, great customer service."


We received many high recommendations for Newport Shipyard’s in-house carpentry department. These experienced carpenters are familiar with the widest range of material including wood or composite, joinery methods and new technologies, do excellent work on-site. They can handle any size job, from refit works to restoration and repairs.

Mechanical Engineering

The Newport Shipyard’s in-house mech. engineering shop have been serving the needs of the yachts for years and came well recommended for the quality of their work. They are capable of complete complex installations of power generators and electrical equipment, shore power and converters. Complete electrical surveys that determine any necessary repairs, modifications, rewiring or upgrades, are one of the many professional services they provide.

Paint Refinishing

The Newport Shipyard Paint Shop came extremely well recommended by another round of Captains this past year. Experienced in all types of products and applications of paint finishes, as well as all surface preparation techniques; the paint crew is equipped to work on large or small projects using Interlux, Awlgrip, Interspray and Sterling paint products. They are also capable of topside blends, buff outs, varnishing, corrosion repairs / fairing, which are all part of the paint / refinishing services they offer.

Bottom preparation and anti-fouling to ‘race-ready’ levels are also available upon request. Their fiberglass specialists are also experts in ‘vacuum bagging’ and fiberglass repairs and touch ups. As one Captain told us: “The Newport Shipyard painting department provides high quality work and excellent skills.”
