Welcome to Croswait.

We have a passion for boats.

Croswait Custom Composites and Marine Services are your East Coast and Outer Banks go-to for all of your custom-build and marine servicing needs. Built on a foundation of three generations, these custom boat-building and full-service yards specialize in a myriad of modern techniques and materials that will bring your wooden, fiberglass, or carbon fiber vessel back to a fully restored condition, conjuring envy on the water from other boaters.

The Croswait Team has extensive experience repairing and rebuilding both sport fishing M/Vs and catamaran sailboats, 48’ and greater. We will also work on smaller skiffs and dinghies, no boat too small or large for our shops.

­­­­We love talking about ourselves! Call us to discuss your project or to simply ask a question. We have a passion for boats and can help rouse you back on the water.

Croswait Marine Services exceeded our expectations! The guys were knowledgeable, responsive, and first class. They installed new electronics, new mezzanine, new entertainment center, new carpet, and much more. Aaron and Jordan have the knowledge and experience to make your boat anything you can dream of!
