A longtime, family-owned resort in Boothbay Harbor has changed hands.

The Linekin Bay Resort, which had been in the Branch family for 106 years, was sold recently to Scott Larson, owner of the Newagen Seaside Inn in Southport, and Stephen Malcolm, owner of Knickerbocker Group, a midcoast design and construction firm. Terms were not disclosed.

In a Dec. 31 letter to the public, Peter and Kristina Branch said a need for “significant investment” in the resort prompted them to look for buyers. The business has been in the Branch family for four generations and the couple said they are pleased Larson and Malcolm will be stewards of the resort’s “next phase.”

The resort is a well-known Maine wedding location and all-inclusive sailing resort.
