About Our Waterfront

With over 2 1/2 acres of waterfront property, The Apprenticeshop community has access to the waterfront via our 400-foot fixed pier and over 400 feet of seasonal floats. Our launch ramp gives The Apprenticeshop and the greater community the ability to haul and launch vessels up to 60 feet. Our float system allows easy and accessible vessel tie-up. The Apprenticeshop also owns and manages a number of moorings to accommodate larger vessels during the summer season.

Dinghy Dockage

We offer dinghy tie-up and seasonal space at our 400’ pier and float system. Seasonal dinghy rental includes parking, access to fresh water and electricity, trash and recycling, use of our porta-potty, and use of our carts to help shuttle gear to and from the floats. We ask that all outboards be left down to prevent damaging other tenders.

Season pass: $315
1-week tie up: $115 (We have limited space and time so please contact the office to confirm your desired dates are available)

You can register online here or contact the office at (207) 594-1800 or by email at info@apprenticeshop.org.
