Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina is the only full-service boat yard located in Saint Michaels, Maryland. In 2017, Higgins was purchased by Jonathan Clarke, and he continues to provide a wide range of marine services including mechanical, carpentry, painting, winterizing, and more. A thirty ton travel lift is also available on-site for haul-outs, repairs and surveys.
Jon Clarke, owner and president of Higgins, was born and raised here on the eastern shore and comes from a family with a long history of boating. His family has owned Magic, one of the famous Chesapeake Bay log canoes, since 1923, with Jon skippering and racing her since he was fifteen years old. Jon is a graduate of The Landing School in Maine, where he received a diploma in Yacht Design in 2014. He then attended Southampton Solent University in England, where he earned a Bachelor of Engineering in Yacht and Powercraft Design, graduating with first division honours in 2016.
Famously known as the "Town that Fooled the British", Saint Michaels is constantly voted one of the best towns on the Eastern Shore. Take a stroll down the quiet streets of our charming haven, where restored homes and buildings take you back in time. Once a colonial village, the town is now home to historical sites, boutique shops, museums, parks, and many fabulous dining venues. From cafés to crab houses to fine dining restaurants, there are options to suite anyone!
We hope to see you soon!
Located at the end of Carpenter Street, Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina is only two short blocks from the main town road, Talbot Street, and is located in the Historic District, directly in the center of town.
