Boat Features
We like to say that we look at the coast of Maine from the deck of a boat. For more than 22 years, we've been covering Maine boats and boating, from sweet little peapods to custom power, lobster, and sailing yachts and everything in between. This section will satisfy your boat lust with photos and videos of gorgeous custom builds and funky one-designs, and also point you to fine cruising areas, report on regattas and events, and keep you in touch with the waters of the Gulf of Maine all year long.

    Out of a handful of sailboats currently under construction along the Maine coast, two of the prettiest may be a pair of yachts at Rockport Marine designed by Ted Fontaine in his Friendship series. Cari Ali, which was launched last fall but came back to the yard for the winter, is a Friendship 36. The new boat, nearing completion, is a Friendship 50, the largest in the Friendship series so far.
