Construction Manager David Luckman recently snapped some shots of Front Street Shipyard’s newest building as Maine Coast Construction’s workers added the final touches.

According to Maine Coast Construction President John Davee; “Building #1 is the northerly building, and actually the sixth of six buildings built, renovated and/or supplied by Maine Coast Construction just in the last year. This is a phenomenal accomplishment by Maine Coast Construction’s steel crews and management. “

Building #1 is a 15,600-square-foot steel building on Belfast’s working waterfront. Not only will it house boats, it also contains facilities for boaters who are renting space in the marina and includes a laundry room, showers and a lounge with free Wi-fi.

Earlier, Maine Coast Construction finished construction of building #5, a 22,000-square-foot boat repair shop. Building #5 can accommodate boats over 100 feet in length. Maine Coast Construction also renovated building #3, which is used as Front Street Shipyard’s woodshop.

Front Street Shipyard also has a new wooden boardwalk. According to the project manager, Randy Boyer, the boardwalk is roughly 300 feet long and goes around building #1 for the enjoyment of visitors.

Front Street’s additions are being completed just in time for the summer season. The property was formerly the home of a sardine cannery, and has since been transformed by a group of investors into a premier shipyard for large vessels. This has created more than 100 new jobs for the Belfast area. For more information about Front Street Shipyard, visit www.frontstreetshipyard.com.
