About


Due to Covid-19 the pool will NOT be open this season, we are sorry for the inconvenience, Thank you. The Island Boatyard and Marina is located on Shelter Island, New York, which sits between the north and south forks of Long Island. Specifically, we are in West Neck Harbor, which is known for its natural buffers that limit wave and wind action for your boat's protection and your comfort. We have 75 slips that can accommodate power and sail boats from 15 feet to 60 feet. Overnight transient slips are also available and include access to our pool, restaurant, outdoor bar, and complimentary shuttle van, which can take you anywhere on the island. Similarly, we offer slips for SALT restaurant guests. Slips for the restaurant are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are $1.00 per foot for two hours. Gas, diesel, and ice are available 7 days a week at our fuel dock, as well as our newly installed sanitation pump out system.

Was the most enjoyable experience we had this summer. Big and crew are some of the most helpful people we have met. This is a great time to visit Shelter Island. We will be back next year.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Island Boatyard. With all that is going on in the world today, I was happy to see that everyone was being cautious. The bathrooms were clean and I felt perfectly safe using them. The only suggestion that my husband has is that it would be nice to have hooks and a shelf to use to hang your clothes towels and belongings on while using the bathroom.

The Marina and the restaurant Salt is doing a fantastic job even though Covid has not made things easy what so ever. Nothing is not that same during this time but both the marina and restaurant are doing what they can to make things easier for everyone. The dockhands are professional and informative, especially Juliet she drove us around town and showed us all the beaches we can go to. Wades beach is so relaxing. Looking froward to coming back next year!!!! :)

When we book the marina they did not tell us the pool was closed. It also did not indicate on their website that the pool was closed. Since it was one of the hottest weekends of the year we consider that extremely important. I Can only assume they wanted us to arrive and find out when it was to late. Other marinas did not use Covid as an excuse. For that reason I would probably never go back.

So much was excellent here, but we had to remove stars because we were not informed that the pool was closed this season before they took our reservation. It was a very big disappointment since no other marinas we have visited had closed their pools. We should have been informed before they took our money. Just be honest. Otherwise it was a nice stay - and the restaurant delivered right to the slip!

I was going back-and-forth on whether to leave three stars four stars or five stars. Let me tell you why I chose four stars. This marina has always been great to me and I’ve always enjoyed my stay there. The restaurant and food is fantastic. The whole feeling at this Marina is a positive one. The reason why I was going back-and-forth on whether to leave three stars four stars or five stars. Let me tell you why I chose five stars. This marina has always been great to me and I’ve always enjoyed my stay there. The restaurant and food is fantastic. The whole feeling at this marina is a positive one. The reason why I was it The reason why I was going back-and-forth was first their health is very inexperienced at the marina, they do not know how to tie your boat up and they really need to be taught. I had to do my own tie up because the young lady that was trying to do it was not doing it correctly. She also plugged in the electric wrong, to explain you need to turn the plug to the right to lock it in by not locking it in because arcing and damage to your line. I’m glad I caught it and corrected it. My brother-in-law who was next to me did not and had a severe arc and damage to his power cord. The next with Covid 19 their pool was not open. But many other Suffolk county pools at marinas were. I think they were afraid I didn’t want to spend the money to staff it and open it and they thought it was better to keep it closed. One of the main reasons I was going to this marina wise to relax in the pool and 90° days. So I’ll leave it at that I will definitely be back to this marina and hope they read this And take it as a positive review that they need to train their staff on how to tie up the boats as well as do the electric. Thank you

Great marina for dog owners very close to shore from slip. Complimentary shuttle is great for shopping or going to restaurants. On site restaurant and fun bar. Fuel and pump out right on dock. We really enjoyed the small beach next to dock. Also took our dingy to shell beach and down some of the canals.

A little difficult to get into at low tide, especially with traffic, but once we were docked, it was a pleasurable experience through and through. SALT was booked solid, so a warning to book ahead would be nice, but the Shipwreck bar was delicious, nice live music, great service. We will be back.

we have stayed here before, and have always been happy, however this time we took a day trip and upon returning as we were approaching our slip we were informed someone took our slip and the dockmasters allowed the person to stay so we were moved. (the boat was smaller than mine so it was not a slip size problem) not the end of the world however it would have been nice to keep our slip or be notified before i was committed to that alleyway. (we were next to our friends that we traveled there with) Garbage cans are no where to be found at the marina only a dumpster across the lot. The marina is protected and clean, shuttle service is nice feature.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dockhands were very attentive to arriving boats to help them dock. Many times they were getting on the boats that were already in slips to fend off when boats attempting to dock were having trouble. The stay was very peaceful and relaxing. There were a few maintenance issues, the bathroom/shower facility for the marina had no towel or clothing hooks so when you took a shower there was no place to hang your clothes and towel except to put them in the sink. It looked like there had been one there in the past as there were holes in the wall outside the shower stall. In the bathroom/ pool-house the urinal was broken for days. It was covered with a large black plastic bag. There was a fundraiser party on Friday for the Shelter Island Fireworks, so you had two to three hundred people using that bathroom and it had one working toilet in the men's room. Towel hooks and broken urinals shouldn't go unaddressed for four days. The restroom/ shower facility for the marina should be expanded, to have one toilet and one shower as a single use facility meant if one person was taking a shower there was no access to the toilet. A few minor issues but when you are paying top dollar for a transient slip you should expect the facilities to be top notch as well.
