Boatworks Yacht Sales

Boatworks Yacht Sales has long been guided by a simple principal: the passionate and dogged pursuit of just getting the boat right. We care about our customers with over seventy five percent of our sales represented by repeat business or referral by existing clients. It is this attention to the needs of the customer which has buoyed our long standing record of success… “Happy boat: happy customer.”

R. Grosvenor Ely bought a long established boat yard in 1971 and founded Boatworks Yacht Sales. It has been a family owned and run business for over forty five years. Today Grove’s son, Clute, is owner and operator of Boatworks Yacht Sales continuing the family tradition. It is with the many Top Salesman and Dealership awards that earned Clute a position on the newly formed customer-direct Grand Banks team. This elite team was formed to help customers sell their existing boat efficiently and favorably to make it easier to purchase their new Grand Banks, Eastbay or Palm Beach Yacht. He is proud to represent these exceptional boat builders.

The original facility on Five Mile River in Rowayton, CT continues to provide customers with new and brokerage boat sales as a customer-direct Grand Banks team, service, slips and maintenance. The facility has expanded to include ownership of the full service Wilson Cove Marina.

Please consider our offer to help you in buying and/or selling your next boat. We will follow up for you!
