Authorized Caterpillar Service Center

The Dickerson Harbor Boatyard marine service department operates out of our Trappe, MD yard. The large buildings allow us to take on large boat repairs and projects no matter the time of year or weather. Our service department can tackle any kind of retrofit or rebuild with a staff consisting of marine mechanics, yacht carpenters, electricians, fiberglass technicians and detailers.

We can do a complete re-fit your current yacht or, a pre-owned yacht that you are considering for purchase. We can add the features and amenities you are looking for to make the boat your dream. Customizing a yacht to your specifications is usually a fraction of the cost and time of building or purchasing a new one.


We are going Green! Our bottom paint of choice is Pettit Hydrocoat ECO – the copper-free multi-season ablative.

Our service department has vast experience working with Grand Banks yachts but make no mistake, we are very knowledgeable about all yachts and regularly service Hinckley Yachts, Pearson, Fleming, Legacy to mention a few. From raw water pumps to head systems, we have done it all. Give us a call with your particular problem and we can help.

If your boat is here for indoor winter storage there is no better time to have those large installations completed during the winter to avoid losing time during the boating season! See our tips section for details of projects you may wish to consider.
