about us


First Harbor Capital is a diversified holdings company set out to acquire emerging companies in key industries where rapid revenue growth and market share penetration are poised for significant gains. Our ancestors launched Marblehead’s golden age with boat building and sail design and we are continuing Marblehead’s innovative future by acquiring, investing and partnering with companies that we believe are either undervalued, undeveloped or whose growth potential is significant and possibly under appreciated, to deliver sustainable value for all our shareholders.

In the 75 years from the American Revolution to the middle of the nineteenth century, Marblehead experienced a golden age of fishing and one small anchorage made itself proud.

From boat building to sail design, First Harbor produced creative individuals whose innovations helped shape maritime history. Now, First Harbor Capital invites you to anchor with us.
— Kevin Charles Baer, Corporate Strategy Advisor

We acquire, invest and partner with companies that have competent management teams with provable experience in their industry and have developed products or services that have a unique edge and strong growth in their marketplace.

Today, the waters of First Harbor, protected by Trustees of Reservations-owned Crowninshield Island and Priest Island, provide a mecca for human-powered water sports, kayaking and kayak fishing. Located in Old Town, First Harbor is surrounded by Fort Sewell, Burial Hill and Peaches Point.

Lighthouses symbolize the way forward and have helped in navigating our way through rough waters, whether those waters be financial, personal, business or spiritual in nature, our symbol as a lighthouse illustrates adversity, challenge and vigilance — while harbors provide protection from wind, waves and currents; a place of security and comfort.
