The Cape Charles Yacht Center

Cape Charles Yacht Center is designed to exceed all expectations for yacht builders, yachtsmen, captains, and crews. Though its primary purpose is to provide full service for superyachts, the shipyard will be able to accommodate vessels of all sizes.

The Cape Charles channel is just inside the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, and has an 18-foot draft. The harbor easily accommodates mega yachts, and the Mid-Atlantic location and year-round temperate climate are ideal for all types of ship service or boat manufacturing.

There are an array of lodging options near the harbor, which Cape Charles Yacht Center can help arrange, for more information on available options visit Bay Creek Resort or Cape Charles by the Bay.
