Higgins Yacht Yard & Marina is the only full-service boat yard located in Saint Michaels, Maryland. 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. Although the name has changed over the years, the property of Higgins Yacht Yard has continuously been a working boat yard since 1790.
In 2017, Jonathan Clarke took over ownership of Higgins Yacht Yard, where today he continues to provide a wide range of marine services including mechanical, carpentry, painting, winterizing, and more.
Jon Clarke 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 honors in 2016.
