Front Street Shipyard, on the Belfast, Maine, waterfront, announced it has purchased its neighbor, Belfast Boatyard.

The owners of Front Street Shipyard are welcoming the employees and customers of Belfast Boatyard while maintaining existing operations. The addition of Belfast Boatyard adds 500 feet of deepwater frontage, 22 slips, 20 moorings and harbor floats, increasing the yard's service and storage capabilities.

"We purchased Belfast Boatyard as part of a strategic growth plan," Front Street Shipyard president J.B. Turner said in a release announcing the purchase. "Our initial goal was to create a yard equipped to service most any yacht that visits northern New England. We've reached that goal."

The Belfast Boatyard property will eventually house Front Street Shipyard's business office and possibly crew accommodations. Front Street now has 72,555 square feet of space for storage and 10,320 square feet of shop space on a 6-acre property with 1,500 feet of waterfront. There are five storage buildings and an additional 6.5 acres of off-site storage.
