Reviews for Cape Breton Boatyard
A small and quite place to be, 2014-11-16
Captain: , Marion, ma (103)

Just outside of town but a very short walk. Great mechanic. Great service.




Many years as a guest, 2011-09-07
Captain: , Brooklin, ME (32)

Henry has always been a gracious and helpful host and we have left our boat there for seven (non consecutive) winters. Great local cruising.



Simple but friendly and clean, 2011-08-13
Captain: , Cruising (3259)

There are several moorings available for bigger (50'+) boats, and the distance to town is only a few more blocks. The people are extremely friendly and helpful, and they have all the basics and a safe and secure place to keep your boat while you venture off to explore the Cabot Trail, Highlands National Park, Louisbourg, etc.



Quiet Storage Yard, 2010-07-27
Captain: , Portland, Maine (326)

Moorings, marina, maintenance, head ashore showers, washing machines, Good place to stop, not a lot going on. Easy walk to town.
No fuel. The yard apears to be looking for just a few good customers and focuses on them and so if a lot of things aren't working it may not be the place to stop... althought the advice is good.... VALUABLE and unpretentious. The Grovners "White Mist" makes t's home here.
