We welcome transient boaters with reservations at this time. However, due to COVID concerns we have restricted all access to our transient facilities including; showers, laundry, ice and restaurant dining. Boaters may place take-out orders which can be delivered to the dock. We have limited dockhand service at this time.
The charming historic village of Stonington is a popular destination, especially for boaters. The Stonington Harbor Yacht Club, located at the mouth of Stonington Harbor offers an idyllic seaside setting with quick and easy access to Fishers and Long Island Sounds. From our docks, take a stroll to many historical sites dating back to the 18th century as well as a variety of restaurants and boutique shops. Dubois Beach, where you can experience the unique view of three different states from one spot while relaxing on the beach, is only a few steps away.
Out transient dockage is located on the western face of the marina boasting beautiful sunset views and easy tie-ups. Boats up to 15’ draft and 175’ LOA can be accommodated. Fuel and marine services are available within the harbor at Dodson’s Boat Yard.
As a guest of the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club, you have 24-hour access to our showers and laundry facilities. WIFI is available in the clubhouse. You are welcomed to enjoy our restaurant and bar where lunch and dinner are served in both our beautiful dining room or outside on the terrace. The restaurant and bar are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays although the Clubhouse remains open from 8:30am-5:00pm.
Our location is ideal for taking in the local sites, visiting nearby attractions such as Mystic Seaport and the Watch Hill seaside community. It is also a convenient waypoint for those traveling to Block Island or Long Island.
It was a pleasant overnight stop overall. Club is located just inside breakwater in Stonington Harbor. Somewhat less protected from prevailing SW winds than locations further into the harbor, but spacious outside transient slips quite easy to negotiate. Staff friendly & helpful.Clubhouse restaurant, normally open to overnight guests, was regrettably closed to us due to Covid policy, but they allowed me to use the bathrooms. Short walk to everything in Stonington Borough.
no staff present at all, dock and cast off with help of members on the dock, on the contrary of other locations that are COVID compliant and allow access to bathrooms/facilities , we had no access to anything beyond the dock!
Always a pleasure. Take-out dinner was great.
Beautiful stay! Kris was very helpful with docking and getting us set up. Will certainly return!
Dockhand friendly and helpful. Unable to use facilities due to COVID. Nice restaurant next door (Breakwaters) where we got takeout.
Great location and view. Very relaxing. We weren't allowed to utilize the SHYC club due to Covid. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It did look like a very nice facility and bar/restaurant. We will be BACK!
Beautiful place! Very clean and staff very friendly. Will stay again.
Friendly staff from manager to front desk to dinning room to dock. Highly recommend a stay!
The staff is amazing one of the friendliest destinations on our voyage. The facilities are very clean and beautiful. Can’t say enough about the staff though!
Beautiful spot in a gorgeous harbor. Love it.
We stayed at SHYC twice on our way to and from Martha’s Vineyard. The dock was easy to access and well maintained. It was a perfect place for us from a convenience perspective. The clubhouse was a short walk from the dock, which was fine with us. The clubhouse is very new and the shower facilities were top notch. Really great. The restaurant and bar were welcoming, and the food was good. The service was a little slow, but that was ok with us. The dock is a few block walk to Stonington, which was a terrific little town. We had a great time and will definitely be back. Update for 2020: the staff helping on the dock were courteous but were not really dock staff. It was ok as we could handle the docking ourselves, but do not expect a pro dock staff this year. Seems like they are doing their best in the tough COVID-19 summer
SHYC is simply the best. Great facilities, restaurant, people are very helpful. The town is terrific too!
Very nice and quite
Nice, helpful people. Very good stay and excellent location. Thanks!
Stayed once before a couple years ago. Had power issues then. Had power issues again during this stay, as did other boats we were traveling with. Have stayed at over 50 marinas with our current boat in the past couple years and only had issue at one other marina where they had a known electrical issue. Also, got shocked when turning off the breaker when we were departing. It was very humid so don't know if that played a role but wish the power issues would be fixed on the dock... the 50 amp connection looked rusty so corrosion inside the shore power pedestal may have played a role but switched to a completely different pedestal with twin 30 amps to 50 amp via an adapter. The breaker itself is what shocked me when I went to turn it off to disconnect.
Very helpful and pleasant Harbor Master. The other people we met on the docks were also very friendly. A wonderful experience! We'll be back
Great stop off at Stonington Harbor Yacht Club. People were so friendly and helpful. Nice facilities and Stonington is such a quaint town with so much history. We highly recommend it.
Nice spot with easy access
Clean facilities. Excellent staff. Great town to visit.
The club's hospitality and facility was wonderful. We enjoyed three days visiting with friends and walking this friendly village. The club has limited transient dockage available but we highly recommend this location - plan ahead.
Could not access toilet/shower facilities after hours. Pass code did not work.
A wonderful place. Lovely facility. Great showers, laundry. perfect walk to fun places and the quiet village of Stonington. We will be back
Beautiful views, nice staff Clean bathrooms
Great location, easy in and out with nice facilities.
Excellent! Been here before as its always on out list.
The location is nice. Had trouble communicating with dock staff on the VHF prior to docking. There is power and water on the docks. Everyone is friendly Restaurant looked nice but could not get in due to private event.
Excellent staff and YC. However I think their Dockwa overview should mention that the YC is closed on Mondays. Other than that - a great spot, walk to town. Easy in and out from the Sound
Dockhands and associated employees great.... Yacht Club facilities are second to none...Great stay. View from dock great. Restaurants near by and great as well
Great staff, very accommodating
We were able to stay on the T Dock. Attendant was terrific and super helpful. The club is beautiful. We were given a tour by Diane (I think), a wonderful woman who works in the office. Showers were Great. Easy walk to beach, adorable town and great restaurants. Highly recommend.
Nice floating docks. Easy in and out. Warm welcome. Nice shower & laundry. Yacht Club has a great restaurant and bar. Highly recommend.
Very nice quiet club. Great bathroom and shower a short walk away.
Great time. Club was closed but you can request a passcode to enter to use bathroom and laundry. Beautiful town. Local restaurant are great
Yacht club was very accommodating and also prepared an excellent dinner for our yacht club
A very convenient along-side berth in Stonington. Just a bit bumpy during the night with a fresh SW wind. Showers clean but a good walk, not very large. Dock stgaff ran us by their car to get propane. VERY nice!
Very organized and great accommodation for showers and decking. Beautiful building with restaurant and bar and it’s location there serene Main Street.
Lovely location, nice facilities, friendly helpful staff!
Beautiful location and facilities - professional and friendly staff - an absolutely lovely destination!
Katie was very helpful taking the initiative to call me and offer recommendations for dinner. Had a great dinner at Water St cafe thanks to Katie! However, it was offseason and 3.50ft is too expensive. Could not even plug into the dock since all pedestals are 30amp and we need 50amp. So $3.50ft without electricity!
