Opened in 1843, the Mystic Shipyard has evolved over the past few centuries from building schooners to a recreational marina that offers yacht space to 165 summer residents.

Jeff Marshall typically starts his days early at the Mystic Shipyard, a 169-year old marina with a history steeped in the construction of schooners and iron-clad ships to sail the waterways of New England.

Marshall, along with Robert Helbig, are co-owners of the shipyard located in Mystic, Conn. Opened in 1843, the marina was home to several ships, including the Jennie R. Dubois, constructed in 1902 and the largest sailing ship ever built in Mystic, Marshall said. At a cost of almost $100,000, it was designed to carry 3,000 tons of coal or two million board feet of lumber.
