About the Boat Yard

Dutch Harbor Boatyard was purchased in January of 2014 by Eric Presbrey and Joe McGrady. The life long friends grew up sailing the waters of Cape Cod. After graduation from college, Eric and Joe went their separate ways until the formation of their partnership in 2010. Their vision was to make DHBY a beautiful destination for both their seasonal and transient customers. They focused on strategic renovations and increased service capabilities to offer their customers a great boating experience. They have turned Dutch Harbor into a full service boatyard with a spectacular mooring field, full maintenance and service capabilities, hauling and launching and convenient and safe winter storage. Most importantly, Dutch Harbor has amazing personnel. Dutch Harbor would not be where it is today without its talented, award winning staff. Please contact us to see what we are all about. We would love to show you our beautiful boatyard.
