Chesapeake Marine Railway is a Massachusetts shipyard that has served the fishing fleet of
New England since before the Civil War. We pride ourselves on being the oldest continuously
operating railways in the United States.
In service to the modern commercial fleet, Chesapeake Marine Railway drydocks and performs
repairs and maintenance for fishing boats, tugboats, ferries, excursion vessels, the
schooner fleet as well as smaller commercial and pleasure craft. With two marine railways
and an 85 ton Travelift, we have the ability to address the needs of vessels of all sizes.
Our highly skilled crew is very capable and experienced with all vessel construction
materials. Our signature service is a commonsense approach to maintenance and repair needs.
