“We’re incredibly fortunate to add New England Boatworks to our network of marinas,” Jason Hogg, senior vice president of investments for Safe Harbor Marinas, said in a statement. “We already had a robust presence in Narragansett Bay with five locations; NEB gives us a 6. NEB is one of the most renowned boatyards in the country and it will be a cornerstone for our boaters in Narragansett Bay. We’re also very excited about growth projects already permitted and expansion opportunities we intend to pursue at this unique property.”
