Henry R. Abel is a family-owned, full-service yacht yard. They are located at the end of Somes Sound in Mount Desert, Maine. They have been around since 1975 providing the highest quality marine and specialty technical services to pleasure boats and commercial vessels.
Abel’s was started in a retired stone quarry in 1975 by Dave Beal. What began with a simple marine railway system has evolved into two marine travel lifts and nine buildings worth of inside storage, a large mooring field and multiple slips for lease, as well as a on-site restaurant.
