Maine Built Boats
MBB, a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization, was established in 2005 to strengthen and expand Maine’s boat building industry. The organization is creating a unified brand that presents Maine as a worldwide leader in boat building quality, technology, and craftsmanship. MBB will use unique and aggressive initiatives to promote the brand and increase demand for Maine built boats in regional, national and international markets and strengthen the boat building community.
MBB partners with the state and federal government to leverage resources and develop a favorable business environment for the Maine boat building industry. In addition, the organization is dedicated to supporting marine industry training and the development of technologies that enhance industry products and performance.
We produce top quality vessels built with Maine pride. Maine built boats – from luxury yachts to workboats and canoes – exemplify the finest craftsmanship and latest technology available today. Our strong support industry, ranging from sail makers and yacht interior designers to boat-related software developers, has also established Maine as a leader in custom upgrades, restorations, and outfitting.
An experienced workforce, augmented by some of the finest boat building education facilities in the country, provides access to the best manufacturing talent available. This level of knowledge, in addition to substantial investment in facilities and equipment and access to deep water, makes Maine an ideal location for yacht design and construction.
