Doucette’s Boat Building is a family-owned and operated business. The company was started in 1990 by Jimmie Doucette who already had many years of experience at sea, and in the boatbuilding industy.
In the early years, business consisted mostly of major repairs, refits and restorations to many different types of boats in both wood and fibreglass. The first new boats built by the company were of wood and wood-epoxy construction. After years of building wood boats and undertaking many major boat repairs and refits, the company set out to build what they believe to be their best and last wooden boat. A mould was crafted from this boat for future fibreglass designs.
A lot of time was spent planning the construction of the new fibreglass design which is known today as the Doucette 45. The hull features a Northumberland Strait-style design which has proven itself in the commercial fishing industry in the rough seas off Eastern Canada’s rugged coastline.
After building a number of commercial fishing boats and earning a reputation for excellent workmanship with a keen eye for detail, and quality customer service, the Doucette family adapted their proven commercial design for the pleasure boat market. In developing the pleasure boat design, the family’s expertise in knowing what works and what doesn’t was key.
It can be finished as a simple lobster boat, sport fisherman, or as a luxury trawler yacht. The company offers a custom interior to meet all their customers needs and dreams.
