Established in 1989, Pioneer Mooring has developed a first-class reputation among boat owners, harbor masters and marina managers within the SouthCoast MA and RI seafaring communities we serve. They appreciate and rely on the custom solutions, specialized experience and outstanding personalized service we consistently provide whatever the conditions or challenges.

Today, Pioneer Mooring and its related marine enterprises are owned and operated by Steve and Karen Gomes. Steve’s extensive technical marine knowledge, mooring systems design and dock construction expertise was derived from decades of practical hands-on, as well as, boat yard managerial experiences. He is extremely well-known, well-liked and highly-regarded by marine industry professionals throughout SouthCoast MA and nearby RI.

As testimony to our superior customer service, Pioneer is unique among marine service providers by being the only full-time, year-round dedicated mooring service firm in the region. Additionally, our seasoned mooring and dock service teams are comprised of permanent, full-time employees including three highly-qualified certified commercial divers. This allows us to respond immediately to your underwater inspection and repair needs without delay― no waiting for return phone calls or service availability from subcontractor divers.

Our commitment to providing the best in custom-crafted mooring systems, docks, swim floats and professional services is ongoing with investments in advanced equipment, operational facilities and new products. For example, Pioneer is the area’s only mooring service firm equipped with a Sub Meter GPS device for ultra-precise location positioning within one foot. (Such a device is now required by the New Bedford Harbor Commission… other towns to follow.) Other recent capability improvements include:

  • TWO fully-equipped barges for more lifting capacity on commercial projects
  • Knuckle Boom Crane: extended lifting from 20 ft. with spuds that hold exact position
  • Expanded facilities to accommodate mooring/gear/dock/float indoor winter storage
