Sag Harbor Yacht Yard was first established in 1797 as Rysam's Boat Yard. The owner's first job was to build the 200 ton brigantine, "Merchant". The yard went on to build many more ships for the trades. As the Whaling industry came into its own, Capt. Rysam was right there building and outfitting his own whalers as well as those of other Sag Harbor captains and companies. These whalers took advantage of the whaling grounds off of Brazil.
The Yard continued to play an important part of the maritime industry of the day. It built the cutter USS Spark (1813). A 103', 310 ton brig, that eventually found its way to the Mediterranean to fight the Barbary Pirates. Afterward, it sailed back to the Caribbean to supress the pirates there, where she was successful in capturing a number of pirate ships and their crews.
The Yard continued on through the 1800's building coastal cruisers and maintaining the same. As WWI and WWII came about the yard was pressed into service for the Navy, outfitting minesweepers and helping in the development of torpedoes.
My favorite place to catch the MOST beautiful sunset! Sag Harbor is so fun in the summer and we always look forward to docking at SHYY. Perfect spot to also catch the Fireworks. Improvements are always being made and last season they added dock cameras and better wifi which was a breeze to connect to. Our boys love it too bc there is a bait store on the property and they love fishing.
Loved this location! My husband and I came for the Sag Harbor American Music Festival and we had a wonderful stay. The staff was lovely and very helpful. There was a ship store with everything we needed and a very funny chandler to help you find what your looking for. The village was just 5 minute walk with a great selection of restaurants. We look forward to coming back Summer 2020!
We Stayed there the evening of the Sag Harbor Fireworks. A charming,quiet small spot with fantastic views. Help was very friendly . They provide parking!! A huge plus in Sag Harbor. We will be back again ASAP!! We are back again for 2019. Grest improvements this season. Internet is all new and fabulous. What a pleasure to have a car here with an assigned parking space! We are thinking we would like to make this our new home base. Just arrived back for Labor Day weekend. The place is still looking better than ever before. Courteous and helpful staff assisted us with a rental car and a minor repair including sending for a part. What a lovely spot.
What a treat! A cozy small spot with a short walk to the center of the best town in thr Hamptons. Friendly staff, fabulous views and a place to park which allowed us to rent a car and explore a bit. The Floating docks are a pleasure. We had a small mechanical difficulty. They dropped everything to get us back in service. How lucky we aew to have found this jewel! As we head North, we already have reservations to return STILL LOVE IT! we are back for 2019. New WiFi and assigned parking are fabulous upgrades this season. Dock staff is wonderful. The ships store was utilized this time. All in ,it makes Sag Harbor the best destination Thanks to the Yacht Yard! Back again!! Our favorite spot on the east end
Very accommodating staff. Good location close, but not too close to town.
Low key, great and quiet location in sag, staff is great although not always around, needs to have internet for the price they charge.
Be wary of the manager/original owner He has a local reputation for unscrupulous dealings, overcharging, padding bills, unsatisfactory service, and on and on. There are new owners, yes, but the old owner still manages the marina so, unfortunately, my warning remains. [Edited review 7/2018]
What a great spot right in Sag Harbor. New floating docks with good power and wifi make this a nice place to dock.
