Our reader selection for May 2013 is Newport Shipyard, in Newport, Rhode Island.
Newport Shipyard plays host to some of the biggest yachts and fastest sailboats on the East Coast due to its ability to haul and store large yachts and its top-notch facilities. In June of this year, its new 500-ton Marine Travelift, the largest in New England, will be fully operational.
John Clayman, Power & Motoryacht reader and president of Seaton Yachts, writes:
“The yard’s motto is: We are in the business of saying yes. Year after year, the same yachts return for their haulouts, because of the talented professionals in the yard.”
