Expanded Capabilities, Additional Craftsman

Feb 28, 2011 07:52PM ● Published by Anonymous

Sarles Boatyard & Marina, Annapolis’ oldest boatyard, is hosting a Maritime Village Open House. The open house serves to show off its expanded woodworking shop, introduces the Sarles team and features several boat building workshops.  It’s scheduled for Sunday March 13, 2-5 p.m. at Sarles, 808 Boucher Ave.  It is free and open to the public.

“We’ve expanded our capabilities, brought in new business and hired more craftsmen with an emphasis on preserving and reinforcing our rich maritime heritage,” said owner, Debra A. Smith.  “Responding to market demand, our expanded work space now to more than 15,000 sq. ft., will be devoted exclusively to wooden boat restoration, cabinetry and custom boat building.”

Smith purchased Sarles in November 2005.  For more than 100 years it has served the boating community providing the following onsite services: yacht brokerage, electronic services, inboard gas/diesel repair, wooden yacht restoration, custom shrink wrapping and power boat and kayak rentals.  Tom Weaver, who also owns Eastport Yacht Company which designed and developed the Eastport 32, continues to serve as boatyard manager.

For information on the Maritime Village Open House, call Ms. Smith, 410-263-3661 or write Debra.Smith@Sarlesboatyardandmarina.com.
