Welcome to Watch Hill Yacht Services
We sail and motor about nine months a year on Block Island, Fisher's Island and Long Island Sounds. Our lineage goes back five generations on the same location on the Pawcatuck River, including the past three generations as a full service boat yard and marina facility. We know these "waters" well and we know what types of boats will provide you with the enjoyment you deserve - whether you are sailing by the shoals off the Connecticut River, boating in the swift currents of Fisher's Island Sound or anchoring in the quietude of Narragansett Bay.
Unlike many other yacht brokers, we rely almost exclusively upon a local network of veteran sailors, area yacht clubs and boatyard operators to keep us abreast of the inventory of sailing craft and powerboats that are available in Rhode Island and southeastern Connecticut. We can turn on the Internet as well as any other broker. But it is the "local knowledge" from our trusted network that enables us to uncover that special craft that is perfect for you.
We are also the exclusive manufacturers and dealers of the Watch Hill 15, a 24'6" open cockpit sloop that is raced by the Watch Hill Yacht Club.
We would enjoy working with you as either a buyer or seller and we thank you for stopping by and "rafting-up".

"Azure" is in immpecable condition and has received proper care by her knowledgeable and meticulous original owner. She has been appointed with multiple options that make her an exemplary example of this highly regarded yacht including her twin Raymarine E120 Multifunchion displays (Color GPS, Chartplotter, Radar), Airconditioner / Heater below deck, twin Cummins QSB5.9 380 HP diesels with a mere 425 hours, Onan 9.0Kw EQD generator with nominal hours, complimentary designer upholstery through-out, a handcrafted cherry interior and much more. She cruises efficiently at 22 knots (2,300rpms) with a max speed of about 28 - 30 knots depending on weight (2,800 - 3,000 rpm).
Of note, the 500 hour service for the twin Cummins diesels has been completed. In addition, all belts were replaced Spring 2013 and all house and engine/genset batteries (at a cost of $3,000) were replaced in 2012.
"Azure" has received the best of care and shows better than new. She is available to be seen at your convenience. Our highest recommendation. Inquiries are invited.
