LeBlanc Brothers Boatbuilders

Based in the Acadian village of Lower Wedgeport, Nova Scotia (not far from Yarmouth), the LeBlanc Brothers Boatbuilders prided themselves in building excellent work and pleasure boats based on fishing boat hulls.  Brothers Leo, Neil and Kevin brought together a talented group of builders with strength, seaworthiness, fuel efficiency, fit and finish the hallmarks of their boats.  The company was bought by nearby Wedgeport Boats in 2012 and the quality of both shops continues in the combined one.  Here are a few samples of the work I’ve completed with them:

- the workhorse of their yard.  Able to head    out into the worst weather: seakindly, efficient and strong

- a fast jet lobsterboat for Cape Cod
