Chesapeake boatyard has new name and location


Scandia Marine Services renamed itself Scandia Marine Center LLC and is relocating from Kentmorr Marina in Stevensville, Md., to Whitehall Marina in Annapolis.

The move is expected to be completed by July 1.

The Hinckley Co. has operated and managed the Whitehall Marina’s service yard for six years. Hinckley will consolidate its Annapolis operations to its Oxford, Md., location, effective June 30.

In addition to the services Scandia currently offers, the business will have the full operation of a 35-ton Travelift from the deep water of Whitehall Creek off Chesapeake Bay.

Scandia also will manage and have the ability to store more than 170 boats on land in the off season and will have two covered inside storage tents, complete mechanical, rigging and carpentry shops and a new ship's store.

“We feel extremely fortunate to have such a great opportunity to be a part of the Whitehall Marina community. As a past slip holder at this marina, we know it very well and feel we can offer a full range of quality marine services at reasonable competitive rates to not only our existing customers, but those throughout the Annapolis/Mid-Eastern Shore area.” Scandia co-owner Marty Lostrom said in a statement.

Scandia offers general maintenance and repair; marine systems; rigging; custom carpentry; electrical systems; electronics installation; fiberglass repair and modification; custom design and fabrication to sail and power boat owners in the Chesapeake and Mid-Atlantic region.

Scandia is co-owned by Martha (Marty) and Erik Lostrom.

Erik Lostrom is a master ABYC marine technician with more than 25 years of experience and is a 2010 winner of the Eastport Yacht Club’s Outstanding Marine Wizards Award.
