Created by the Van Dam family, Boyne Boat Yard is a sister company to Van Dam Custom Boats - a trusted partner of their custom boat building business. Boyne Boat Yard carries itself with a quiet confidence; moving past extraordinary to provide unmatched service to all things marine related in the northern Great Lakes region. Located in beautiful Boyne City, Michigan on the shores of Lake Charlevoix, Boyne Boat Yard continues to acquire and surround its ABYC certified team members with like-minded individuals who have a passion for all things boating. A 20 year affiliation with Van Dam Custom Boats also brings a high level of experience to the table when it comes to marine construction and repair.
Boyne Boat Yard prides itself on its people; a staff of technicians with decades of combined experience. It is easy to promote our facilities, our offerings and our service abilities – all things that customers expect and deserve in the boating industry – but it is our staff and their commitment, their attitude and their character that sets us apart. Without people who are driven to help others, tools and barns and parts mean nothing. Boyne Boat Yard is a TEAM of individuals with a ‘how may we help you?’ persona.
A core value of family first means Boyne Boat Yard
clients are part of our family. You can expect to be
treated as such.
Be assured we are a full service marine yard with capabilities in all things cosmetic, mechanical and marine systems related. Our team is available all year long to manage the service needs of our clients - general boat maintenance, retrofits and rebuilds, mechanical work, marine electrical service, boat repairs, carpentry, rigging, painting, gelcoat and more. For client convenience we offer a 35-ton travel lift at the water’s edge and pride ourselves on year round oversight of the safety of on-site watercraft during storage.
Be it power boats or sailboats, BBY looks forward to each project…large or small. Our crew is up-to-date on the latest products, techniques, and standards. Our technicians are certified by the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC). We specialize in the unexpected and welcome all unique requests.
We are truly at the service of the
people shaping our success.
