It is worth the very short boat ride from the Boldt Castle (you can also drive to it). Beautiful boathouse and boats. While you get a quick highlight about the Yacht House by the staff, it is a self-guided tour that takes ~15-20 minutes.

Epic boat preservation. It’s a glimpse into the past with the one of a kind boat collection and the massive 100 year old structure that houses them. It’s worth the trip from the castle and will only take half an hour or so.

The Yacht house is lovely and the architecture is remarkable. Im not sure whether there are specific tours that stop at Boltd's Yacht house or not, my tour only stopped at the castle. Great view from the boat and from Boldt's castle.

You don't have to be into boats to appreciate this attraction. Building itself is stunning. Very much enjoyed as part of the castle tour.

The yacht house is just a great place to see. Unfortunately the day we visited we were unable to go in due to the flooding in the area. I hope to get back up to see the inside. We drove our boat over to the...More

The entire island is pretty cool. But to explore the different building was a real treat. Most you can go into but the water was too high when we visited. Great spot for photos.
