Located in the historic Manatee Pocket, a yachting destination renowned for its sport fishing and “old Florida” feel, our Stuart boatyard has been serving the needs of discriminating Hinckley and non-Hinckley boat owners for decades. Over its years of operation and service, it has developed a reputation for superior marine carpentry, fiberglass, hull, and engine repair work.


A recent recommendation posted on the website ActiveCaptain reads “Excellent service yard. Good stop heading to the Bahamas and back. Nice docks. Good for major and minor projects. Big travel lift. Ask for Tony or Brian.” We agree. And we would add this: Hinckley Stuart is close enough to Ft. Lauderdale, but far enough off the beaten path that our high quality work can be delivered at a very competitive price.
