    Duxbury Bay Maritime School (DBMS) offers a wrap-around porch and function room overlooking Duxbury Harbor as well as a beautiful grassy lawn. What a fabulous venue for a reception if you are looking for a classic location in New England. The shingle style building with walls of glass just can't be beat. The event planner was extremely helpful, loaded with suggestions and very flexible. DBMS offer options for caterers and provide full liquor service. There is plenty of parking and the ambience just can't be beat. My daughter's wedding was on a beautiful evening in early June. She was able to arrive by boat and tie up at the DBMS dock. Cocktails and a raw bar were on the lawn and were followed by dinner and dancing in the Clifford Room. There simply was nothing lacking. Don't take too long to consider this venue however as they book up fast.
