WELCOME—Watkins Yacht owners and buyers


JOIN THE 2016 Watkins RAFT-UP

at Deltaville, VA

June 3-5

Our 2016 Raft-Up plans are just starting to come together.  Rick has posted a sign-up sheet on the Yahoo  message site.  Weather permitting, and based on early RSVPs, it should be our best attended Raft-Up to date.  The official dates are June 3-5, but some members are arriving early and/or staying later.  The event will, once again, be held at Regatta Point, Dozier's Marina, Deltaville, VA.  Based on the location, amenities and great friendly service, last year's

 attending members voted to return this year. 


Tentative schedule of events so far....


Friday evening - Welcome reception (bring a bottle of wine, beer, munchies, etc. to share

Saturday morning - Group Sail

Saturday evening  - Annual banquet (either at a restaurant or catered on-site like last year)

Sunday - Relaxation and listening to Paul's "sea stories"


Each member attending should bring enough fun and/or useful (cheap) items for inclusion in the goody bags.  Each boat represented will get a bag.

Everyone is also encouraged to search through their boat lockers, garages and attics and bring along no-longer-used-or needed boat-related items to donate or trade.

We need to your help to locate more of the over 1,200 boats manufactured by Watkins Yacht and Marine.

Currently we have a little over 400 boats in the “Owners Log”.  You can look at the current log by clicking on the link in the lower left corner of this page.  Please submit your boat for addition to the list or tell us if any of the information has changed.    Email the information to jdmyers@watkinsowners.com



We are always looking for Watkins literature, factory photos, and history tidbits.  Your boat brochure, pricelist or photo may be unique or just better preserved than one we have available for download.  Please consider donating a copy to us.  If you have found a source for spare parts that we do not have listed please consider sharing that also.  Also we are collecting names of Dealers and their staff’s and factory employees.  We are looking for people “who were there” to help clarify, correct and expand our History section.
