We are sheltered along the scenic shoreline of Tenthouse creek at the end of Woodfield Road, in the former Woodfield Fish & Oyster Company located in Galesville, Maryland.
Since moving in 2009 from the original family-owned property on Lerch creek, we've enjoyed the comfort and easy access at our newest location on the northern side of Galesville.
We are one of the oldest, still family-owned and operating boatyards in the United States.
We remain loyal to the quality craftsmanship and friendly service that has always embodied Hartge Yacht Yard.
If you're new to the area, we invite you to get to know us. Stop by and visit the yard. There's a beautiful view from our shoreline!
Artist, John Ruseau
For over 40 years, John has graced Hartge Yacht Yard with drawings and paintings of images of and around our boatyard. His artwork is featured on our annual calendar and is a daily reminder of the distinct beauty of our river and the Chesapeake Bay.
John enjoyed a long career as a Professor of Architecture at the University of Virginia, Alex's Alma Mater. With encouragement from Alex, John relocated his boat to the West River and has been sailing and painting from our shores ever since.
Please enjoy this small collection, they're just a few examples of the artwork that John has provided for us.
John Ruseau's paintings are featured at the Annapolis Marine Art Gallery on Dock Street. www.annapolismarineart.com
