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.
