A Generational Endeavor

“Lady X” Circa 1945 Built & Captained by Ed & Len
(This boat was sold for $300 which was used to found Maryland Marine Manufacturing, Co.)

Maryland Marina, located in Middle River on the Chesapeake Bay, started its operation in May of 1946. It was founded by Edward J. Miskiewicz*, his brother, Leonard J. Myskiewicz*, and their father, Felix F. Myskiewicz*. It began as a small boat manufacturing plant under the name of Maryland Marine Manufacturing Company which built small rowboats for Montgomery Wards, Sears & Roebuck as well as the general public. The business also produced Lightning class sailboats. Throughout the 1950’s and 1960’s manufacturing was scaled back in favor of the development of the marina and its ancillary uses. In 1967 the final rowboat rolled off the assembly line.

Maryland Marina boasts over 72 years of continuous operation and looks forward to many more years of serving the community and the boating public.

Meet Our Crew

The facilities of a marina are important; however, equally important is the staff. A boat owner should ask, “Are the marina personnel experienced enough to meet my needs?” This can become a crucial factor in the enjoyment of your boat.

Besides our facilities, our greatest asset is our crew. The average tenure of our employees is over 25 years with some of our third generation family members being here over 45 years. If you have a boating question of any type, whether it is, “Where is a good place to cruise?” or, “What do I have to do to make my trailer road worthy?”, or, “How do I properly tune my mast?”, please don’t hesitate to ask us. We are here to serve you and make your boating experience the best that it can be.

This is a great marina. All the slip holders are great and the folks running the place are outstanding. There is also a store on premises that is well stocked with very competitive prices. Well protected in bad weather.

John Hughes

Love my marina! Easy to get in and out. Great ramp!

Aj Wesolowski

We have had several boats at Maryland Marina and have one on the hard there now. Wayne, Brian, Martin, and the entire staff are a pleasure to work with. They always work with us to get everything we need done on our time schedule. The yard is great for DIY, prices are reasonable, and the facilities are good. We’ve never had any complaints and it’s always the place we go back to.

Becky Williams

We have been going to Maryland Marina for most of the 15 years we have had the boat. They are unequaled in friendliness, service, facility and personnel. We will go back until we can no longer walk from parking area to launch ramp (I am sure that they will provide assistance when cannot make the short hike any more). Thanks for a great program.

Ted Gannutz

We bought our boat in October of last year . Our boat has been at Maryland Marina for close to 15 years. The Staff couldn’t have been any more friendly, knowledgeable, and very professional. Wayne, Martin, Brian and Russell have all taken their time to show me what I need to care for my boat. When I needed a repair done on my slip I brought it to their attention and my next visit it was repaired. The store always has what you need at good prices. The ladies in the office are wonderful and know just what and who you need to take care of a problem. The whole place makes you feel at home.

Bryant Gorrell

We put the boat in there every spring, they have a double ramp, one of which is quite long for sailboats. That’s helpful so the power boat guys don’t have to wait while we extend the tongue on the trailer, etc. The guys in the yard are helpful and knowledgeable, and there ship’s store has everything. And there’s the great bar and restaurant. If the boat ever needs repair beyond my capabilities, I’m going there.

Ned Dexter

This is my 3rd year at the Marina. I am here more than I am home. Nice Launch Ramps and very nice people who work at the Marina make this location a great choice.

Chuck Hill

I have loved the time spent at the Maryland Marina and think of the staff as extended family. Always have been knowledgeable and willing to go the extra distance for the slip holders.

Marty Lampner

If you’re looking for friendliness and competence this is the place to keep your boat. Excellent service.

Paul Macom

Great marina that they are investing in, such as a new pier. The staff are super friendly and accommodating! And hey, you can walk to Sunset Cove from your boat!

Rich Stuhmer

Been coming from central Pa for the last 14 yrs to launch our boat …with the last few years keeping boat on property during boating season. Also winterize our 24′ sport cruiser before hauling home. Great group!
