The newly designated boat yard operator for Scituate Marine Park, announced today, that it has signed its lease agreement for two consecutive five-year terms with the City of Scituate, MA. to provide service and coordinate dockage and dry storage year-round at the much anticipated park facility.
President of Scituate Boat Works, Brian Curreri, commented on the commencement of the operation:
“We are pleased to be able to help preserve Scituate Harbor’s only working boatyard and to be part of its historical significance. Officially and appropriately we are starting today, a date that now signifies National Boating Day since passed in Congress last week. The park is still in the final stages of development, we plan to have the boatyard fully operational no later than Labor Day, September 7, 2009.”
Scituate Boat Works started providing all servicing needs including boat detailing, captain/mate services, emergency assistance, diesel and gas engine repair, electronics installation and repair, air conditioning service, marine plumbing and general boat repairs. This will be provided at select but limited on-site dockage or by four mobile marine service vans designated for Scituate and the surrounding area. This will continue until the grand opening near Labor Day. A new state-of-the-art 35 ton travel lift is currently in production at a facility in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin and will be delivered to meet the opening deadline.
“We will have full capability to haul sail and motorboats up to 60 feet. We are also currently taking orders for our fall service programs and reservations for our upgraded winter storage area which has already been met with much enthusiasm by the townspeople.”
In appreciation to the town for all of the hard work put forth to make this happen, Scituate Boat Works will be holding a kick-off celebration in September.
