Maine Yacht Center's dedicated staff caters to the needs of ocean-bound travelers within the safe, loving arms of its 990-foot breakwater. Once inside the calm, glassy waters of the Casco Bay harbor, boats of almost any size can repose on one of the marina's 80 slips ($3 per ft. per day for yachts 50' and under or $3.75 per foot per day for yachts more than 50'). Hungry vessels are fueled up with ValvTect fuel, specially calibrated and seasoned to cater to the fussy palates of marine engines. Maine Yacht Center's qualified craftspeople and carpenters carry out a range of repairs such as rigging ($65/hour), varnishing ($60/hour), or affixing scrimshaw hood ornaments with professional aplomb.
In addition to supplying ships with attention, Maine Yacht Center lavishes boaters with guest facilities that swaddle travelers in hospitable comfort. As their ship is refitted, refueled, varnished, and manicured, skippers enjoy the convenience of the large-capacity washers and dryers; the refreshment of the brand-new baths and showers; snacks, ice, and drinks, such as beer and wine; and the off-color jokes of the resident whaler ghost.
