    After a 46-year run, the Cabrals no longer own Cabral's Wharf.

    The Provincetown landmark, also known as Fisherman's Wharf, has been purchased by a couple known for redeveloping marinas in the Newburyport and Boston area. The $3.5 million sale to Provincetown Marina LLC closed on Friday and was formally filed Monday morning.

    ...

    Over the longer term, the Lagasses plan to expand the marina to 200 slips, making it a “go-to” destination for yachts up to 300 feet. They’d also like to look into possibly adding a boutique hotel and additional restaurant in the future.

    I think the sellers decided to take it for the time is now... deals for higher had both fallen through and been rejected in the past... climbing rose on the wall, pluck it now before the petals fall...

    Cee Jay is moored at MacMillan pier, the one on the left. Fisherman's Wharf is the one in the center of the photo.

    MacMillan is the town pier. Fisherman's as noted in the Cape Cod Online article, is privately owned.

    this is very very good news for us all...my life long friend whose family built and owned the marina will be retained as the manager...I have worked in the marina for the past 10 years as a dock master and launch boat driver and I am very excited at the changes these proven owners will bring to the marina....we heard 30 million bucks is earmarked for it....plus he is doing retail there and guess who will be very involved with that part of it??...LOL..fun times ahead ...cant wait...

    and yes CeeJay is a completely separate and apart from marina..same owner(s) but completely apart

    A new 'go-to' destination in Provincetown?


    The owners of Fisherman's Wharf in Provincetown want to build a 10-foot-wide walkway along the pier. Steve Haines/Cape Cod Times file

    PROVINCETOWN — Pedestrians strolling Commercial Street could soon find a walkway to the end of Fisherman’s Wharf if the wharf’s new owner receives all the necessary permits.

    In his first presentation to selectmen Monday, Chuck Lagasse said he is trying to receive local, state and federal permits to build a 10-foot-wide walkway that would run along the west side and add to the width of the pier. It would go around the end of the 1,025-foot pier, then cross over the beach to the square by the Knights of Columbus across the street from Town Hall.

    Lagasse purchased Fisherman’s Wharf in February for $3.5 million. The wharf runs parallel to the town-owned MacMillan Pier and includes 187 parking spaces, several buildings, a restaurant, 110 moorings and 50 boat slips.

    The proposed walkway, or harbor walk, would enhance the downtown access to the water, Lagasse said.



    “It would be from this square to the waterfront ... at our expense totally,” Lagasse told selectmen. "It’s enlightened self-interest.”

    More people directed to the marina helps businesses along the marina, he added.

    In the future, Chuck and his wife, Ann Lagasse, plan to make the wharf a “go-to” destination for yachts up to 300 feet with restaurant and hotel amenities.

    “It’s very, very exciting for Provincetown,” Selectman Cheryl Andrews said.

    For this summer, a new concrete dock and floating docks will be added to the east side, Ann Lagasse said. Next year, they hope to get permits for the harbor walk.

    Construction is already underway to convert a former ice house on the wharf into employee housing, with four apartments and a shared kitchen, he said Monday night. He hopes to add more employee housing in the future.

    Lagasse's staff is upgrading bathroom and shower facilities for boaters to use and he has ordered 17,223 square feet of new wave attenuator docks and floats to add to the west side, pending permits. This will create a wave barrier and help accommodate the large yachts in excess of 200 feet, he said. The docks will be delivered in the fall and be able to stay in the water year-round.

    I'm surprised at your response. I would have thought this would be the beginning of the end of charm and quaintness of the area.

    not the way they re doing it ....they need to get the blessing of key town folk to do all this, many town folk who think and value things exactly like me ..it's safe ...it will be done the right way ......plus I toured their other two marinas and stayed at their five tar hotel last night....they have a real knack for upscaling without being ridiculously foo foo....I'm totally on board ....

    What about the addition of yachts and boutiques? Or are they already there?

    the mega yachts still cannot get into the inner harbor .....it's too small...so that will never change ...we re gonna put them on the western side of the outer harbor which is where they go now anyway, only we re gong to be able to service them now, which is something previous owners had no Interest in .....retail shops are fine.......it will enhance the pier ....they will be built in the spirit of the town look
