George C. Boldt Yacht House is an historic yacht house located on the northeast shore of Wellesley Island near Alexandria Bay in Jefferson County, New York. It was designed by the Philadelphia architects G. W. & W. D. Hewitt, built in 1903, and is a massive eclectic Shingle style structure composed of five elements. They are a circular tower containing reception rooms; a central group of three yacht service bays; a large east service bay; a combination office and storage wing with a crenelated tower; and a large caretaker's residence.

The yacht house was built by George Boldt as a principal dependency of Boldt Castle.[2] The steam yacht Kestrel is located in the yacht house.[3]

The yacht house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
