Owning the Coast

Have you been dreaming of living on the ocean? Do you long to stroll out your door, with your morning coffee, to your boat? 

94% of Maine’s precious coastline is privately owned and most docks and piers are constructed for single family use. For example the Town of Yarmouth approved sixteen docks in five years and twelve of them were for private use.*

Private docks and piers are located all along Main’s coast and waterways and, though a single pier may have little to no impact on the environment and aesthetic of our shores, the cumulative effect of many piers can add up! 

Each county and town will have its own laws and guidelines, but we can help you get your dream home’s launch inspected. We can point you in the right direction to have one built on a property you are interested in purchasing!
