We enjoyed it, but collection is quite small and not of interest to everyone. But you can take shuttle to Heart Island from boathouse.

We toured it but be advised, this is NOT Included in the regular Uncle Sam's Boat tour price that Include admission to Boldt Castle. There are a few nice boats in there, but I was kind of left with "That's It?" type of feeling. i...More

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.

I think it only costs $3 more with Castle admission. Get to see some old boats and also the living quarters.
