WOOD & FIBERGLASS BOAT BUILDING & BOAT RESTORATION

Like many of our customers, our relationship with boats and the joy they bring is deeply rooted in family. As a third generation boat builder, owner & master craftsman Bob Fuller understands that boats provide a beautiful new way of experiencing and enjoying the world, and for the marine businesses we work with, they are a source of income and business opportunities.

Since 1990, South Shore Boatworks has built, designed, restored and renovated many boats and yachts, producing one-of-a-kind results for customers. Our staff members are traditional as well as innovative, professional as well as personal, possessing a deep appreciation for craftsmanship, quality and performance.​

Our expert craftspeople work with both wood and fiberglass boats.  We would love to work with you on your next project and help to make your dream boat a reality, preserve the beauty of your current boat, or restore your boat to its former glory.
