About First Light Boatworks

First Light Boatworks is located in Mill Pond, Chatham. Mill Pond is a well protected anchorage connected to Stage Harbor and Nantucket Sound through the Mitchell River Bridge. The Mitchell River Bridge underwent a multi million dollar renovation and can be opened with 1 hours notice from 8am to 5:30pm. This has opened up Chatham as a destination spot for lunch, drinks, and even a weekend away.

Our boatyard is no more than a 7 min walk to Main Street, Chatham - and only a 5 min walk to the Chatham Light and Lighthouse Beach.

FLBW has moorings available in Mill Pond for boats up to 55' and 2 moorings in the outer harbor that can moor boats up to 70'. First Light Boatworks is also a full service boatyard with a Marine Railway.

First Light Boatworks is a destination in itself. We are a custom wooden boat builder housed by an old dirigible hanger from the historic North Chatham Naval Station. Take a step back in time and see how wooden boats are built plank on frame.

We hope to see you soon!
