When it comes to designing, installing and servicing mooring systems, Pioneer is the name most often mentioned within SouthCoast MA and nearby RI boating communities. Why Pioneer? It’s because our mooring systems have established an excellent reputation for quality components and worry-free, reliable performance… along with our unmatched customer service.

CUSTOM BOAT MOORINGS is what you can expect from the design and installation professionals at Pioneer. We take the time to carefully evaluate both your vessel’s mooring requirements as well as the marine conditions associated with your designated site. This helps ensure your boat’s mooring system will withstand the heaviest of New England’s stormy weather conditions.

Pioneer is the authorized dealer and town certified installers for the best mooring components available worldwide including Hazelett systems; Anne’s Mushroom, Helix, Pyramid and Dead Weight anchors. We also custom fabricate mooring gear specifically designed to meet and exceed local mooring field requirements. Let Pioneer professionally advise you on related mooring system gear (buoys, pendants, chains, cordage, shackles, swivels, thimbles, etc.) that provide maximum security, performance and durability for your boat.

ANNE’S MUSHROOM ANCHORS provide superior stability, performance reliability and worry-free safety for boaters wanting an ultra-quality mooring system. Their American made, all-steel construction sets them apart from imported cast iron mushroom anchors with design features that include 400% higher psi tensile strength, longer eyelet wear, heavy counter weight and bell reparability. Refer to our Anne’s Mushroom Anchors page for details and informative graphics.

HAZELETT MOORING SYSTEMS feature elastic rode technology that along with a Pioneer buoy, offers a unique solution that can greatly reduce pennant loads during stormy conditions. The Hazelett system’s elastic properties absorb peak loads by maintaining a lower steady pull which also reduces yawing. Please refer to our dedicated Hazelett Moorings page for details and illustrations that further explain how Pioneer can customize a system for your boat.

For more information on mooring anchors and gear, please refer to our website’s Products tab.

PROFESSIONAL MOORING INSTALLATION is not only expected, but guaranteed with Pioneer! We’ll professionally install your custom designed mooring system securely and accurately in full compliance with local Harbor Commission requirements.

Our Sub Meter GPS location device (area’s only mooring service firm so equipped) enables us to perform installations at the exact coordinates specified in your mooring permit. Such location precision is especially critical as harbor towns continue to increase their boat populations within more confined moorings fields. As an added benefit to utilizing Pioneer Mooring, our comprehensive services also encompass helping you navigate the involved approval process of obtaining a mooring site.
