WELCOME—Watkins Yacht owners and buyers

This site is dedicated to owners of Watkins boats, both sail and power.   Our purpose is to provide technical and historical information about the boats and the Watkins company to help owners enjoy and maintain their boats. 

This site contains no advertising and generates no revenue. 

This site has no “Groups” or email submissions.  The “Groups site” was on Yahoo until they stopped hosting “Groups”.  Below is the email from Mark Richardson on how to join the new group.  Note:  This website has no affiliation with the new groups site other than I am a user of it.

A new group has been created with Groups.io so please join in at our new home.

To join, go to
https://groups.io/g/watkins and click the blue "Join this Group" button on the home page.

Or send an email to
va3obo@icloud.com and I will send you an invitation to join.

Unfortunately we will lose the archive of past messages but lets get active building a new one.

If you have any questions or have any difficulty, contact me at
