Welcome to the AZ Pondyachts!

AZ Pondyachts is a small shop in Scottsdale, Arizona where the emphasis is on the building of Pond Yachts to the design and construction techniques of vintage boats from the 30's, 40's and 50's and later. These remakable models are a reminder of the talent and workmanship of the builders, designers and sailors that built and sailed these boat. The primary focus of the builds will be Marbleheads and Star 45's. A stray IOM may be considered as well and if a A class or J Class may be in the works.
