Many boats built by NEB depart after launch never to be seen again when owners from around the world sail away to international home ports. Those remaining on the East Coast of the US often return while visiting Rhode Island for service, repairs, and refit or just to spend time at NEB while cruising in the area.

Return visits for the summer of 2013 include 4 notable custom yachts all based in New England during the summer season. NEBís most recent launch, the jet powered Zurn 50 is back at NEB for the addition of a heating system. The outboard powered Matt Smith 42 is based at NEB for summers and is once again headed south for the winter. Front and center in the marina recently, an S&S 68 originally launched in 2006 has returned to NEB for some paint touch ups and detail repairs before heading to Florida for the winter.

While the above mentioned yachts are still maintained in as new condition, there is another NEB built boat on the shop floor undergoing her first major refit after sixteen years of service in New England for summers and Florida each winter. The Hunt 65 was originally custom built as a wheelchair accessible yacht and is currently being lengthened to 74 feet with the addition of an NEB engineered hydraulic lifting system for the transom platform. The revised setup will allow the owner to board the boat by wheelchair from floating docks as well as fixed docks as high as 8 feet above a standard floating dock.
