Young Brothers Boats shop in Corea
Arvid Young's 45-footer Tenaru River awaits another lobster season outside the Young Brothers boat shop in Corea. The buildings were demolished last week to make way for a house, but Young Brothers lobster boats, including the 45-footer, will still be built by SW Boatworks in Lamoine. - JACQUELINE WEAVER
LAMOINE - It's a long ride from Lamoine to Corea, but the Downeast town seems much closer since the Young Brothers, or at least the molds for their handsome, rugged boats, came to town.

Founded in 1976, Young Brothers was famous for its fast, sea-kindly boats that could handle the rigors of lobster fishing in the Bay of Fundy, take a couple cruising on the Chesapeake or ferry hotel guests in the islands.

With Colby Young and his younger brothers, twins Arvin and Arvid, at the helm the company built more than 550 hulls ranging in size from 30 to 45 feet before closing the doors of its Corea boat shop a few months after Arvin's death in 2008. Eventually, the land and boatbuilding business went up for sale.
