About Earl’s Marina of Fairhaven, MA

Earl’s Marina is a family owned and operated establishment that grew out of the pure love of boats and the sea. For over 40 years, Earl’s Marina has been providing full marina services, such as slips & mooring rentals, boat hauling & towing, boat repairs & maintenance, winter boat storage, and more.

In 1958, Earl H. Hebert began the marina in its original location on West Island in Fairhaven, Massachusetts. We are fortunate to be situated in one of the most beautiful and exclusive waterfront areas in southeastern MA.

Earl H. believed in this marina offering its patrons access to the boating destinations of Oak Bluffs & Martha’s Vineyard, Woods Hole, and Cuttyhunk with complete privacy and tranquilly.

He created the marina from scratch with his own two hands. During the summer months, he slept in the main building every night to insure its safety.

Earl H.’s son, Earl W. Hebert, worked along side his father every season and learned all aspects of the marina business.

In 1973, Earl W. assisted his father in upgrading and modernizing the docks and base of the marina. He knew that a quality marina was like operating a farm – it needed 24-hour care and a total commitment from its owners.

Earl W.’s love of boats and belief in providing the highest quality in customer satisfaction was carried over from his dad.

After 1983, when Earl W. took over as the owner of Earl’s Marina, constant upgrading and growth occurred every year.

The marina, incorporated in 1984, is fully hurricane ready with a detailed procedure in case of any warnings.

Earl’s son, Dave W., began working in the marina when he was 12 years old. He was trained for three years as the manager, and now owns the marina.

He protects every boat docked here, and runs the business as proudly as his father and grandfather.

In 2006, Earl’s transformed the Deli Deck into Down The Hatch, an outdoor bar and restaurant which has proved to be a popular destination for boaters and residents in Fairhaven, MA.

Earl’s Marina has continued to implement facility and equipment improvements. For example, in 2008, we upgraded a significant piece of equipment for boat hauling – a 2004 Mack truck, that when combined with a submersible Brownell hydraulic trailer, is capable of hauling your boat anywhere in southern New England.

With an expanded boat service department, we are always making more improvements to ensure that Earl’s Marina offers the finest marina services to our valued boating customers.

Earl’s Marina wishes to thank all of its patrons for the many years of trusting our family business to give you the very best in boat care and southeastern MA marina services.

When you’re at Earl’s Marina, you are a member of our family, and we offer our best wishes for a safe boating season.
