Established in 1951.

Nelson Boat Yard was founded by Jimmy Nelson in 1951 in the sleepy coastal town of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Our close proximity to famous Bon Secour, Alabama gave us a stronghold in the boat yard and boat repair business that has continued for over 60 years and is now in its third generation of Nelson’s. One of the most enjoyable aspects of being in the boat and yacht repair business in Gulf Shores, Alabama, is the wonderful relationships that we have developed over the years. Our trusted staff and professional services have made Nelson Boat Yard one of the most trusted names along the entire Alabama Gulf Coast. We hope you enjoy reading our website and we hope that you will give us a call for your next haul out. Whether your in for a simple bottom job or a major repair or re-fit, we promise to take care of you like family. Your business is important to us and we aim to keep you happy.
