Calderwood Yacht Yard, Manchester MA

(now Manchester Marine)

Most recent update: November 2, 2014.


W. B. Calderwood started Calderwood Yacht Yard in 1899, on the site of an existing haul-out and, in the 40 years before WWII, built many fine yachts and racing boats.  After the war, he sold the yard and it was renamed Manchester Marine.   It has been resold several times since then but continues in business today.  See the shipyard from the air on Google here.  If anyone can provide any additional information, please e-mail me at timcolton@aol.com
