About Cranberry Island Boatyard

Cranberry Island Boatyard was founded in 1985, when David and Barbara Stainton moved from Vermont. David had been an architect, and decided to pursue boatbuilding and naval architecture.

In 1989, he designed and built the Western Way 19, (length 19 1/2', beam 7'3") fiberglass power boat. It has 2 berths and a porta potty below, and then can be customized to 4 different deck layouts. You can choose from a bass boat, open launch, classic launch or lobster yacht design. Most other details can be customized as well, from seats to trim.

Barbara Stainton worked with her husband David since the yard was founded, and today manages the business since his death in 2006. Cranberry Island Boatyard maintains approximately 35 boats a year, besides building the Western Ways and their 10' dingy.
