Default Hmmm......any guesses?

Belknap County.....8 acres......being offered by ROI Corporation Rockland MA. No price listed I think you have to verify you are qualified to get the details.

Fays Boat Yard ?

Not Fays, Fays was established 1966.
The place on the market was established 197?

Sounds like Thurston's and the retirement piece would fit with the current generation of the family.

From the Thurston's website: https://www.thurstonsmarina.com/about-1

The marina has grown to encompass over 8 acres and 15 modern buildings. All this is now situated on 800+ft. of Lake Winnipesaukee frontage with docks, dry racks, and boathouses.

I believe that Fay's Boat Yard was founded by Wilbur Fay in 1944. We have been there since July, 1963. ��

Those are all mid/larger sized sailboats. Photo most likely from an ocean location. Wooden tidal breakwater points to this also. The Onion at work.

My parents bought our first and second boat there. Sad that no one in the family is going to keep it going.

If the photo is accurate it certainly doesnít look like Thurstonís. I donít think there are many other boat yards than Fays that has so many sail boats.

Looks like the ocean to me....think it's deliberate and not a photo from Belknap County.

My folks had a trailer in Two Pines trailer park in Glendale starting around 1960 and Fays was a fixture already back then.

Looking for the listing on the Bean Group web page I noticed that, right around the corner, Beans and Greens is for sale also.
