Situated on Vineyard Sound in Vineyard Haven harbor is a small but flourishing boatyard whose mission–and passion–for 30 years has been designing, building, repairing, maintaining and sailing wooden boats.

Established in 1980 by Nat Benjamin and Ross Gannon, Gannon and Benjamin Marine Railway has built over 50 substantial vessels, mostly to Nat‘s designs.

With design inspiration from classic yachts and traditional boats, and built with the highest quality materials and meticulous craftsmanship, their boats are intended to take owners, family and friends sailing in a comfortable, safe and seamanlike fashion. Built in plank-on-frame construction (lapstrake or carvel, steam bent and sawn frames), their boats range in size from an 8 foot dinghy to a 65 foot schooner.
