About Cape Codder Marine
Cape Codder is owned and operated by commercial fisherman. We know how boats need to be built to withstand commercial use. We know why custom layouts are critical for anyone's build. And we know what it's like to take pride in a boat that is unique and unlike any of the "cookie-cutter" models in the harbor. If you're in the market for a boat or looking for a partner to do a rebuild - steer clear from cheesy mass production and start a project with Cape Codder. You'll get a solid, locally built custom boat and great value for your money.
Our history is really simple. In 1968, Sandy Urquhart designed a 19' work boat that has the best ride of any boat in its class. Then he built them the right way - with a focus on "commercial quality". Sandy knew that building boats that can withstand the use of commercial fisherman meant building boats that last longer, perform better, and look classic. Over 50 years have gone by since the first Cape Codder was laid up. New designs have been added and we've expanded our business to service finishing, repair and refit customers. One thing has remained the same though - complete dedication to "commercial quality". Whether you work on the water or are looking for a family boat, choosing a Cape Codder means you'll have a boat that's built to withstand a beating.
