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 suppress 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.

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! October 2021- My husband and I got a chance to swing through the harbor during the weekend of the music festival and since it was the end of the season we were lucky enough to get a slip at the Yacht Yard for 2 nights. Always a nice stay- quick walk into town- floating docks- helpful and friendly crew of guys!

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. Summer 2021---Another lovely stay at what I consider one of the best slips in the Harbor. Great staff, strong Wi-Fi, and a beautiful peaceful stay. Always sad to go...

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. Spent a good deal of May ,2021 back in our favorite spot . I wish the weather had been better. But the availability of assigned parking was a godsend. Its simple small and like living at your own waterfront estate. Staff got us out of a major mechanical jam with empathy and skill. Thanks guys!

Docked for a week summer 2019. Docks are new and beautiful. WiFi is professionally installed and great throughout the docks. Dockmaster helpful and parking is hard to beat. Right in central sag harbor. Lot of large yachts dock here. If you are on a smaller boat, and don't want to shower or use the head on your boat you will find the single shower / bathroom provided by the marina a bit underwhelming and a bit of a walk. With the price they are charging, another restroom+shower would be reasonable.

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.

Marina Response:
Thanks for the kind words. We look forward to seeing you again in the future, The next time you come please ask for the dock attendant's cell phone number as well as the VHF channel that he monitors personally . Also , We do have wifi internet coverage. Again, please don't hesitate to ask for assistance. Enjoy the rest of the season! SHYY

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]

Marina Response:
Hello everyone, I am the NEW managing partner of the Sag Harbor Yacht Yard. Me and one partner purchased the Yard in December., 2017 The new owner of the yard is Yacht Yard Acquisitions LLC We kept the DBA , Sag Harbor Yacht Yard as the name is over 200 years old! When signing up with Dockwa / , we noticed a quite old negative rating. It is not relevant to today’s operations or owners of the facility. I look forward to our new relationship with Dockwa. Since we have spent about a million dollars on the upgrade of the waterfront. Dredging, floating dock reconfiguration , and finally all new electric to accommodate the larger vessels that can now, for the first time, patronize us. We welcome your patronage and look forward to serving both the Sag Harbor Community and the traveling boater! Best wishes and Good boating to all !

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!
