Available Services

Cape Yachts’ brand of unmatched service is available at our South Wharf Yacht Yard. Our full-service boatyard and marina offer extensive capabilities in commissioning, customization, repair, and repowering for everything from a simple tender to large complex sail and power yachts. 

The technologies that go into a new yacht these days are not something you can familiarize yourself with just by thumbing through the manual. This is why our staff is composed only of the most competent, highly trained, and experienced mechanics, technicians, and artisans in the country. In most cases, they have received special factory training so you can keep your best girl that way for years to come. 

Our team is experienced in supporting our North/South clients that move their boats annually from the beautiful cruising grounds of the Northeast down to the southern climates of Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. 

Cape Yachts Service

Boat Service

We are capable of addressing most marine repair or modification and are best known for providing prompt, friendly and customer centric services. We manage and care for boats and yachts from a simple tender rigged with an outboard to complex 80’+ sailing and power vessels. We are always interested in making our services available to new clients and welcome you to stop by for a visit to discuss your needs.


South Wharf’s certified mechanical team loves what they do. And that enthusiasm shows through with their impeccable reputation in both inboard and outboard systems. They are also experts in running gear service, systems upgrades, fuel systems, bow thruster and windlass installations. Our mechanical team stays up to date with the ever-evolving marine technologies through annual service schools and constant technical reading on Volvo IPS systems and the latest in Cummins and Yanmar technology. Plus, we’ve obtained our 5-Star Master Class Yamaha Certification.

Electronics & Electrical

A sophisticated electrical and electronic system is as much a part of today’s yacht as a diesel engine or a sail. The electrical technicians at South Wharf are all ABYC certified and adhere to the highest industry standards whether they are installing custom navigational packages, updating wiring systems, or supplying power to systems throughout the vessel. We are a Master Raymarine, SIMRAD, B&G and Garmin dealer in addition to our electronic technicians being factory trained and certified in warranty service for all our brands.


There is nothing like the feel of a well-loved boat – but the years can and do take their toll. The finish department at South Wharf is just what you need to add extra years to your well-loved boat. We can give your vessel a new lease on life by fabricating parts and molds, replacing bulkheads and, in general, providing a thorough sprucing-up. For more information or an estimate, please call us today or stop by for a visit. We’ll be happy to make our services available and more than happy to take you on a tour of our facilities.


From cleaning and servicing winches to replacing lifelines, from running rigging to rewiring masts and testing shrouds, the rigging masters at South Wharf know all the finer points of the trade to make your boat or yacht as shipshape as she can be. We also offer indoor rack storage for masts and booms throughout the year in our dedicated spar sheds. For more information, or an estimate, please call us today or stop by for a visit. If you’re lucky, you might even see one of our expert riggers in action.
