Owner’s Message

My father started Dutch Wharf back in 1955 as a small boat repair facility on the Branford River. I’ve operated the business since 1986 and have faithfully followed his credo of offering discriminating boat owners high quality repairs and restorations at a fair price.

Our crew of full time professionals now spans every discipline providing exceptional carpentry and joinery, fiberglass repair, engine & mechanical replacement or repair, gel coat maintenance, painting and AWLGRIP service, electronics, refinishing and rigging repairs. Many of our team of professionals have been in the industry for over 20 years.

We take pride in our work and can provide references for those considering our service.

Call me personally for a free consultation and estimate. Once you do, I’m sure we’ll count you as another of our satisfied, return customers and a friend of the yard.

Our Marina

Dutch Wharf maintains 65 slips for vessels of varying lengths and beam widths. Maximum length is 55′ and maximum beam is 17′.

Please call for availability and pricing – (203) 488-9000 or email us at

Due to space limitations on our docks, customers who store with us have priority when applying for a slip rental. Winter storage customers receive a 4% discount on slip rental rates.


Dutch Wharf offers outdoor winter storage for vessels having a beam width 17′ or less. For current contract form, rates, and yard rules please contact us.

Storage rates include, hauling boat, blocking and shoring in yard and re-launch in spring. Additional charges include pressure washing bottom, un-stepping masts and re-stepping in spring, winterizing engines and covering boat. (Both shrink-wrapping and canvas covers are available at customer’s option.) Note that a 5% discount is available to customers paying their winter storage bill within 10 days of presentment.

Winter storage season is from November 1 through June 30. Wet storage is also available if desired. All boats wet stored will be served by “bubblers” during the coldest weather.
