Padebco Custom Boats, a full service boatyard, has been building custom boats in Round Pond, Maine for over 50-years. Our boat building process combines modern production methods with traditional craftsmanship resulting in a stunning custom vessel.

Each of Padebco’s distinctive, deep V, fiberglass cruising vessels combine excellent design, top-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.

In addition to new construction, our highly experienced and skilled staff is capable of refits, repowers, refurbishing, repairs, restoration and custom work on wooden or fiberglass vessels. We maintain transient and seasonal moorings in the well-protected harbor of Round Pond and provide hauling and indoor or outside storage.

Growing up on the water, with a love of boats influenced both Padebco Custom Boat’s founder and designer, S. Bruce Cunningham, and current owners, Leon and Sara MacCorkle, to join the vibrant boat building industry in midcoast Maine.
