Our Story

Henry R Abel Boatyard is a family-owned, full-service yard. We have been around since 1975 providing the highest quality marine and specialty technical services to pleasure boats and commercial vessels. We are located on 6 acres nestled at the end of Somes Sound in Mount Desert, Maine.

Hr Abel was started in a retired stone quarry in 1975 by Dave Beal. What began with a simple marine railway system has evolved into two marine travel lifts and nine buildings worth of inside storage, a large mooring field and multiple slips for lease, as well as a on-site restaurant.
