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.
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.
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
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.
Spent several days at the newly renovated Yacht Yard. Great find in the heart of Sag Harbor! Easy walk into town and amazing views. Dockhands were right there to assist us and really good power. Will make this our stop every year!
