Padebco is a custom boat builder and a full service boatyard serving Mid-Coast Maine for over 50-years. Our boat building process combines modern production methods with traditional craftsmanship resulting in a stunning custom vessel. From Walkarounds, Center Consoles to Cruisers, Padebco will custom build the boat of your dreams.

Each of Padebco’s distinctive, Downeast-style, fiberglass cruising vessels combine excellent design, quality materials, masterful construction, and beautiful joinery. All interiors are crafted of domestic and exotic woods. Our designs include a beautiful 17-foot skiff and luxury cruising vessels from 21 to 32 feet as well as custom finished hulls up to 50 feet.

map In addition to new construction, our facilities and skilled marine craftsmen enable Padebco to undertake all types of marine projects, providing quality workmanship on sail and power boats. Padebco has been building and maintain boats for over 55-years, making us uniquely qualified to care for your boat.

Padebco offers heated indoor, indoor and outside storage. As a full service and year-round yard we will complete requested service work, maintain our boat, and ensure your boat is commissioned, launched, and ready when you need it.

Have our USCG licensed Captain deliver your boat, or have Padebco haul your boat at our yard.

We maintain transient and seasonal moorings in well-protected Round Pond Harbor, the gateway to the Penobscot Bay cruising grounds. Round Pond Harbor is the perfect home port or stop on your cruise!

Growing up on the water, with a love of boats influenced Padebco’s owners, Leon and Sara MacCorkle, to join the vibrant boat building industry in Mid-Coast Maine.
