About Us

Two full service yards, two great locations, one strong work ethic.


In 1962, Elmer Dion purchased a small boat yard in Kittery known as Stevenson’s Boat Yard.  Over the next four decades, Dion’s Yacht Yard was transformed into a first-class restoration, maintenance and repair facility.  In 1981, George Patten, a local boat builder and designer, established Patten’s Yacht Yard in Eliot, ME.  Patten’s reputation for custom boatbuilding, restoration, and finishing that was recognized throughout the Northeast.

Fast forward to today, Kittery Point Yacht Yard (KPYY) is the culmination of both of these former yards, representing Maine’s two southernmost yacht yards.  Located less than five miles apart, the combination of the two locations has enhanced the depth of our crew and services as well as greatly expanded our storage capacity.  From repair to maintenance to boatbuilding, we have the ability to meet the needs of both commercial and recreational boaters.  This merger reunited old friendships and created many new ones.

Mission:  KPYY’s mission is to grow our business on a foundation of exemplary service and the highest quality workmanship.

Guiding principles:

  • Integrity in business
  • Excellence in our skill sets
  • Exceeding expectations in service
  • Honesty and diligence in building relationships
  • Stewardship for our environment
