Welcome to Philbrook’s Boatyard, the Pacific Northwest’s premier full-service boatyard, offering onsite facilities for custom design and construction, and complete boat repairs. Our shipyard has been in continuous operation since 1950 and has earned a reputation for quickly adapting to changing markets and responding to the sophisticated needs of our customers.

Philbrook’s is recognized for building elegant custom motor and sailing yachts, while steadfastly keeping abreast of new technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques in the ship building and repair industries.


The dedicated staff of Philbrook's Composite Department believes in attention to detail and quality workmanship. Our priority is ensuring our clients' best interests are taken care of. Delivering comfort, security, safety and value is our job and we take it seriously.

Our experienced staff repairs and makes custom fabrications on vessels from 20 to 120 ft. We refurbish existing structures and perform custom work - everything from grounding or collision damage to implementing your ideas on improving your vessel's comfort and usability. Reproducing classic vessel components in new composite material reduces maintenance while preserving the original character of your investment. Whether the project requires a simple practical solution or a luxurious, ornate creation, Philbrook's craftsmen have the necessary skills.
