East Boothbay

11355582_821467266304_1298132786_n.jpgEast Boothbay is well-known world-wide in the boat building communities. This age old craft is thriving throughout the region as well. Five generations of Hodgdons, 411 Yachts and Shipsexplains the amazing story of Hodgdon Yachts headquartered in East Boothbay.  

Their goal is to build the world's best sailing or motor yacht. And to them, building a world-class yacht is measured in how well design and aesthetics are balanced with practical issues of engineering and performance. Hodgdon vessels have earned the reputation of "heirloom boat" for more than their extraordinary looks.

They also stand the test of time. At the foundation of every sailing and motor vessel they build, you'll find a consummate team of craftsmen, the industry's most advanced construction technology and a passion for excellence. It's the way they have built boats for nearly two centuries.

When it comes to the "big guys," Washburn & Doughty builds on. In the days of WWII, the yard was known for constructing mine sweepers, today they continue to build steel and aluminum vessels and offer dockside repair and design services and tug boats. 
In December 2012, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences officially opened a brand new Ocean Science and Education campus in East Boothbay, after having spent nearly 40 years in West Boothbay Harbor. It is the first science laboratory in Maine to receive LEED® Platinum designation and houses the nation's official repository of marine phytoplankton. 

The Internationally renowned Laboratory was established by Drs. Charles and Clarice Yentsch in 1974 as a private, non-profit research institution named for the oceanographer Henry Bryant Bigelow, founding Director of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Since its founding, the Laboratory has attracted over $100 million in federal grants for research projects, winning competitive, peer reviewed awards from all of the principal federal research granting agencies. East Boothbay's Ocean Point area offers excellent rocky Maine coastline for walking, tide pool exploration, and the perfect vantage point for taking in the islands, lighthouses, boat traffic, sea birds, and salt air. Discover the Boothbay Region Land Trust’s Ocean Point Preserve and see for yourself why visitors keep coming back to this magical place.
