Over the past 40 years, Darling’s Boatworks of Charlotte, Vermont, has acquired a reputation for doing the best boat work on “the west coast of New England”.
We are pleased and proud of the reputation, and frankly, won’t deny it for a minute.
Whether your boat is wood or fiberglass, power or sail, and needs a minor repair or a complete restoration, we’re confident you’ll be impressed with our professionalism and the superb quality of our work.
We bring more to the table than our skills and experience. We bring our minds.
We love working with customers to solve problems: creating more storage space, finding a solution to a structural problem, improving hardware, adding more ventilation, or finding that pesky leak.
With our hydraulic trailer, we can pick up almost any power or sailboat, bring it to our yard in Charlotte if necessary, and return or launch it after the work is complete.
Our boat shop right on Lake Champlain, at Point Bay Marina, makes us convenient to enthusiasts in both Vermont, New York, and Canada.
