Government Vessels

Essex Boat Works has been serving the marine industry since the War of 1812.

Over the last twenty years, Essex Boat Works has provided service and storage for several of the State of Connecticut’s Government Vessels; including but not limited to the ‘Cumberland’ and the ‘Hollister’. The ‘Cumberland’ is the nation’s oldest continuously operating ferry service crossing the Connecticut River between Rocky Hill and Glastonbury and we are proud to have her at our yard in her off season.

EBW also provides maintenance and storage on Government owned vessels including but not limited to ‘John H. Volk’ and the United States Department of Homeland Security ‘CG41’.

Our boat service yard is equipped for haul outs, winter storage, engine, transmission, and steering service and repairs, pressure washing, painting, winch service, fiberglass repairs, and more.
