Setting — Just below the railroad bridge, on the western shore of Mystic Harbor, the docks of Mystic Shipyard fan out from the tip of pretty Willow Point. The distinctive all-glass, semi-circular dormers of the contemporary club house are easily visible as you approach.

Marina Notes — New riverfront pool with stone pavers on deck in 2001. South of all the bridges. The historic Mystic Shipyard first opened its doors in 1843, building schooners and iron-clad ships. At the turn of the century, after completing the last 5-masted 249/ft. coastal schooner, Jennie Dubois, it became a yacht building center. In the 1940's the Mystic Shipyard built sea sleds for recreational purposes and also as tenders for presidential yachts. Today, it's a full-service marina and boatyard providing complete shipwright, fiberglass, painting, mechanical and electrical services. Bought in 1997 by a consortium including Noank Village boatyard & Sailing Specialties, which embarked on a program of major upgrading. They also own former Mystic Cove, now renamed Mystic Shipyard East. The club house has a large & airy banquet facility with views of the marina and harbor and is also home to the Mystic River Yacht Club.. It accommodates up to 200; The Market provides catering.

Notable — A mile walk to the heart of Downtown Mystic, a 1.75 mi. trolley ride to the Mystic Seaport and 2 mi. to the Aquarium. Alternatively, dinghy up the River to downtown's Mystic River Park (on the east side just below the bascule bridge), and then farther up, to Mystic Seaport (near the North Gate). The galleries and studios of the Mystic Art Association - 11am-5pm - are an easy walk (they're also available for special events). Downtown Mystic offers a plethora of shops, eateries, and things to do. Trolley service to Amtrak, Downtown, the Seaport, Aquarium, Mistick Village, McQuade's Supermarket and West Marine.
