#8.  Greenport Yacht & Shipbuilding, 201 Carpenter Street  c. 1860

The configuration of the marine railway in this yacht yard has remained relatively unchanged since its installation in the 1850s. Boats of up to 1000 tons can be hauled on it. In the early 1900s, members of the New York Yacht Club had their boats overhauled here and America Cup contenders recruited crew from the yard. During World War II, the yard employed 1200 employees who worked on the construction of minesweepers and landing craft.
