Doucette’s Boat Building is a family-owned business established in 1990 by Jimmie Doucette. The company’s early business consisted of major repairs, refits and restorations to many different types of boats – in wood and fibreglass.
The first new boats they built were of wood and wood-epoxy construction before the company developed a new fibreglass design – the Doucette 45. This design features a Northumberland Strait-style hull which has proven itself as a leader in the commercial fishing industry in the rough seas off Eastern Canada’s rugged coastline.
After building 40 commercial fishing boats from these new moulds, the Doucette family worked on adapting their proven commercial design for the pleasure boat market. This meant a completely new design for the topsides, which would have to be practical, spacious, and suit the boat’s unique Northumberland-style hull lines. Once the topsides design has been finalized, the Doucette’s began designing a luxury yacht interior – which they believe can compete with any yacht in its class today.
The Doucette 45 can be finished as a simple lobster boat, sport fisherman, or as a luxury trawler yacht.
The company offers custom interiors to meet all of their customers’ needs and dreams.
