New England's most experienced multi-hull builders can be found at Greene Marine in Yarmouth, Maine, where Walter Greene has been creating cutting-edge racing and cruising multi-hull designs for almost 40 years. He has also built boats by designers including Ted Hood, Ed Dubois, Jim Antrim, and Jim Taylor.

Greene has worked with many prominent trans-Atlantic sailors and has also done his share of trans-Atlantic and open ocean racing. Walter Greene is a multihull sailor who loves boats. He currently sails a 1926 Alden schooner.

Wife and co-skipper Joan Greene, sister Esther Greene, longtime shop manager Charlie Smith, and a capable crew make up Greene Marine's special blend of excellence. Greene Marine is known for designing & building anything: power/sail, wood/composites, USCG-certified, test tank models, shoe boats, mega-globes, and "space shuttles".

Greene Marine has also done extensive work on classic boats including a Q boat, a Herreschoff Rozinante, and a 62' William Hand motorsailor. With their extensive knowledge, they perform major repairs on cruising multihulls.

Greene Marine also provides storage, haul & launch, repairs & refits, and other services specialized for the mono- or multi-hull owner.


"Whether he will admit it or not, Walter Greene is one of the premier boatbuilders on the coast of Maine, especially in the use of high tech materials. He is also one of the most practical builders, knowing exactly what it takes to do the job for the least amount of time and money. He is a wealth of knowledge, which he loves to pass on to anyone interested. So when you are looking to build, especially a multihull, make sure you consult with Walter Greene, the newest member of the Maine Boatbuilder's Hall of Fame."
