Boothbay Harbor Navigation Project

Boothbay Harbor

Boothbay Harbor is located in the community of Boothbay Harbor, about 11 miles southeast of Bath and 35 miles northeast of Portland Harbor. The harbor is a popular summer resort and one of New England’s major yachting centers. A large fishing fleet, a number of boat construction firms, and charter and windjammer cruise boats utilize the harbor.

The project, completed in 1913, involved dredging along the wharves and the upper end of the inner harbor to a depth of 12 feet.
