History of Allen Harbor Marine Service
Allen Harbor Marine Service is one of three harbors in Harwich, with the other two being Wychmere and Saquatucket.
It is named after a man named John Allen who bought land on the harbor in the mid-1750s. It was originally a shallow pond with a narrow outlet out to the ocean. It was dredged over the years and became the harbor we know today. Prior to it being “Allen Harbor Marine Service”, it was previously named Oyster Pond, Gray’s Pond and Gray’s Harbor.
Our policy is to treat customers fairly and with integrity. We are committed to their confidentiality and best interest.
The goal of our organization is to operate in a professional manner on our customer’s behalf and be the authority on boating for the Cape & Islands.
