Bill Morong’s Yachting Solutions has a modern 15,000-square-foot storage-and-repair facility in Rockport, in addition to dock space in Camden on the American Boathouse dock at the head of the harbor and the Harborside West dock, and a new marina in Rockland with berths for 50 yachts.
Yachting Solutions restores, repairs and maintains all types of yachts. Current projects include restoring an 80-foot classic commuter yacht and a Trumpy motoryacht. The firm also provides crew management and yacht services and is a dealer for Hunt powerboats.
