Dolf Haffenreffer IV
Partner / CPYB (Certified Professional Yacht Broker)
Cell: (401) 644-3005
Dolf is a founding Partner of Wellington Yacht Partners and a Certified Professional Yacht Broker. An active sailor out of Sakonnet Point since early childhood, he cruises and races any chance he gets. He learned to sail at Sakonnet Yacht Club in Little Compton, RI, and later coached its racing teams. Besides a successful racing career as skipper on both his nationally ranked high school and college sailing teams, he has also enjoyed sailing in several Newport-to-Bermuda, Marblehead-to-Halifax, and Annapolis-to-Newport races, including one double handed Bermuda 1-2 Race.
After graduating from Connecticut College with a degree in Economics and studying at the Tuck Business Bridge Program at Dartmouth, Dolf worked in finance in Boston. Before long, his dream of working with boats quickly brought him back to Rhode Island, where now specializes in the sale of high-quality yachts -- both power and sail.
When not assisting buyers and sellers with their yachting needs, he and his wife Meredith can be found skiing or on the water. They spend countless days cruising on their Bristol 35.5’ sailboat or racing out of Sakonnet Yacht Club on their family-owned 1954 Alden designed Sakonnet One Design. Dolf is a board member of the Yacht Brokers Association of America and a member of both the New York Yacht Club and the Cruising Club of America.
