A History Of Raritan Yacht Club

A History Of Raritan Yacht ClubThe Raritan Yacht Club, for sale one of the oldest in our nation, has a rich and colorful history. In pre and post Civil War years, Perth Amboy became a resort - fine hotels drew visitors for their summer vacations from Newark and New York. The bay full of deep, clear water and its access to the ocean made Perth Amboy a natural site for boating enthusiasts.
