Custom Boat Builders
The boat of your dreams, custom built for you.
Padebco has been building traditional Downeast-style recreational boats that lean toward luxury for almost 60-years. Padebco boats are revered for their classic lines, strength and longevity. Our custom boats range from 21 – 32 foot cruisers, center consoles and walkarounds to one off builds, 17 foot skiffs, and finished hulls.
The unique experience of designing your own cruising vessel is shared by a fortunate few. At Padebco, you are an integral part of the team. Using designs by Padebco founder S. Bruce Cunningham, each boat is customized to our client’s needs, vision, and desires. Our seasoned staff collaborate with each client to select the details of their boat and include them throughout the construction of building the boat of their dreams. The genuine craftsmanship and design that is part of each Padebco custom boat combined with ideas and input of its owners result in a distinctive vessel.
Padebco maintains a reputation for quality craftsmanship and attention to detail that are part of our well-built boats. We pride ourselves on maintaining high standards of quality and service while cultivating long-lasting relationships with our clients.
