SWAIN BOATBUILDERS has been building, restoring and repairing wooden vessels since 1966. At our Eastern Shore location near Chestertown, Md., we combine traditional methods and modern technology to construct sound, seaworthy craft.
  • We specialize in historic reproductions, as well as classic yachts, Chesapeake Bay working craft, power or sail, large or small. Working with your design, or our own, we’ll construct a new boat that meets your unique requirements.
  • Swain BoatBuilders will work with you to develop effective solutions for repair or restoration projects that stay within your budget and schedule.
