A third-generation family-run business

Alex, Nancy, Kenny, and Carlee Bock

I have hauled my sailboat at this yard for 30 years

I have hauled my large sailboat at this outstanding yard for thirty years. This is a true family-run yard with expert supervision from Kenny and his son at every stage. Kenny Bock employs only the best workers and he treats them like family, so they thankfully stay with him seemingly forever. Everyone goes out of their way to help you in every respect, very personable and friendly service. The quality of their work is superb and the pricing is extremely reasonable. Most importantly, Kenny Bock can give you great advice on what is best for your boat, and he will insure that it is done timely and to perfection!

Morehead City Pilots Association is happy to be part of the “Bock Marine Family”

In the mid-90’s, Morehead City Pilots started calling on Bock Marine for the hauling and repair of their pilot boats (Halmatic 44′ “Rough Point” and ex CG hull “Able”). We were quickly impressed with their knowledge, expertise, and their commitment to make sure our boats were properly cared for. The family atmosphere that Carl and Kenny Bock instilled early on is still very evident today. Projects we have entrusted to Bock Marine include two repowers, several topside paint jobs, construction of a bow bumper system, plus our yearly maintenance. Morehead City Pilots Association is very happy to be a part of the “Bock Marine Family.”

This is the combination cruisers look for

This is the combination cruisers look for. A boatyard with professionals who can diagnose and fix anything, but one that will also allow you to do as much of your own work as possible while you are on the hard. We needed our shaft/coupling box adjusted, a new centerboard cable, rudder shaft repair, and a steering quadrant adjustment…The owner, Kenny, oversees and is directly involved in every job. He is honest and doesn’t bs his way around anything He has been doing boatwork for a long time and can quickly determine what steps need to be taken to address problems. His knowledgebank seems unlimited. One of the best things about the operation is the Ship’s Store…they have fasteners, varnishes and paints, hoses and clamps, zincs, thru-hulls, epoxies and glues, solvents, cleaners…basically anything you would find in a West Marine, and at a much lower cost.
