Kretzer Boat Works, City Island NY

Most recent update: December 7, 2014.


Kretzer Boat Works was started in 1906 by Walter Kretzer and was best known as a yacht finisher, i.e. for outfitting bare hulls built elsewhere: as a result, its construction record understates its actual performance.  It was sold in 1977 as a marina and was destroyed by fire in 1997: its site is now occupied by the Seafood City restaurant.  If anyone can add to the table below, please send your info to timcolton@aol.com.
