Carbon Ocean Yachts Joins Front Street Shipyard

Front Street Shipyard welcomes Carbon Ocean Yachts to its Belfast, Maine, facility. Carbon Ocean Yachts of Bristol, Rhode Island, is relocating its operations to Front Street Shipyard’s extensive new facility on the waterfront of Penobscot Bay. The two builders will work together on the construction of lightweight, performance-driven yachts combining award-winning construction techniques with state-of-the art amenities. 

 

“We’re excited by the new possibilities that will exist by integrating Carbon Ocean Yachts into Front Street Shipyard,” says JB Turner, president of Front Street Shipyard. “Carbon Ocean Yachts is leading the way in composite construction technology. Coupled with our versatility in materials and systems, we expect to have some remarkable projects.” 

 

Carbon Ocean Yachts remains an independent company, but will contribute to the existing expertise at Front Street Shipyard. Carbon Ocean Yachts founders, Brian Benjamin, Britt Colombo and Toby Mueller, retain ownership and will continue to manage the company. 

 

“By relocating to Front Street Shipyard’s facility, we expect to enhance our capabilities for our clients,” explains Colombo. “Our current facilities won’t be able to accommodate our future projects. Front Street Shipyard was our first choice for a new facility because it is already making its mark as the premier yard for big boats on the East Coast. The fusion of their superb team with our prowess in carbon fiber construction is the main reason for the partnership.”
