Maine Harbor Masters Association

The State of Maine Harbor Masters Association is a member driven organization numbering 200+ harbor masters and deputy harbor masters from the New Hampshire border to Canada, maintaining unobstructed navigation on one of Maine’s natural resources, the harbors and coastline. As the 4,568 miles of coastline is used for recreation, commercial fishing, transportation and wildlife habitat, Maine coastal waters require proper organization and regulation.
