The Restoration of BEN is nearing its end! She is launched for her intial swell and will return for finish and paint. We expect to have her ready to sail in the Stuart Kncokabout Regatta in July, 2013.
What We Do:
We are a full service yard meticulously maintaining and caring for boats ranging from 16ft to 58ft.
We upgrade and refine both wooden and fiberglass yachts to mint condition and classic aesthetics.
COME FOR A VISIT & TOUR
Ballentine’s Boat Shop (BBS), established in 1974, is tucked away in Cataumet, Massachusetts. We front not a harbor or bay, but a cranberry bog. BBS has grown, at this same location, from a one-man shop with one small building to a facility with 5 large efficient buildings and a 10 to 13 person staff skilled in woodworking, yacht finishing, rigging, and bronze fabrication.
Ballentine's now fully maintains boats ranging from Herreshoff 12 1/2 footers to a 58-foot ketch. Our emphasis has always been to provide quality service, maintenance and restoration of vintage wooden yachts. The Ballentine's crew is meticulous in their carpentry and finish work. They have restored and continue to maintain an impressive and varied fleet. See our Restorations Page to look at our past and current restoration projects.
BBS is probably best known for restoring and maintaining the original Herreshoff 12 1/2 footers. Because we service so many of this design, we also fabricate their hardware. Our high quality Bronze Hardware is also available for purchase.
