About


Welcome to the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club!

Since its founding in 1953, the mission of the AHYC has been to attract and bring together dedicated individuals who share a mutual respect for the sea, and to encourage and advance all aspects of boating, yacht racing, and on-water activities, including offering a welcome and safe haven to yachtsmen and yachtswoman who visit the harbor.

Located within the protected Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor in Atlantic Highlands, NJ, AHYC maintains the reputation of being a convenient and popular stopover for boaters cruising or in transit as we are close to Sandy Hook and New York Harbor. We offer save and secure moorings and launch service to transiting sailboats, up to 50' in length, from mid-May to early November.

Our facilities include the moorings and launch service and a second story club house with spectacular views of Sandy Hook Bay and the New York City sky line. All our mooring guests are invited to visit our club, meet our members, enjoy a meal and cocktail, and partake in the friendship that is the AHYC. The inviting bar is well stocked, and the galley offers varied food menus.

Shower and bathroom facilities are provided by the Atlantic Municipal Harbor, not the AHYC; access keys are available from the Launch Drivers during normal operating hours. Check our website, www.ahyc.net, for the daily launch schedule.

Visitors should be aware that we can not accommodate power vessels of any length, or sailboats greater than 50' in length, on our moorings due to Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor policy; dock slips for these vessels may be obtained by contacting the harbor office on Ch 09.

I never give bad reviews but I in this case I must. I made a reservation on Docwa before heading out from Manhattan on my way south but when I arrived the the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club radioed me a mooring location but then radioed over VHS to let someone they knew who was 100 yards behind me take my mooring, and then retracted my reservation and mooring. It was clear from the radio exchange that it was a favor to a friend of the club. Then they just cancelled out my three day reservation, washed their hands of me. Some guy motored out on the launch to shout that they had some confusion and I should just anchor. Wouldn’t have been a problem because I like the anchor area nearby but I wasn’t anchoring there because I have to leave my boat for a couple days. I had a three day reservation and they just tossed me off for some relationship with the club. I am on a fixed income so that hurts as I now have to pay for an expensive slip nearby with the unrelated marina. My advice is to hammer call multiple times as you approach and badger them to make sure they don’t drop your reservation.

We're a trawler so were anchored rather than on a mooring ball but used their great launch service. Easy, responsive and very professional! We'll be back as it's a good stop.

People are friendly and helpful, good restaurant at the marina. Everything you need is a short distance from the marina. Is very easy to get in and out. The marina a mooring fields are protected from waves and wins. I'll definitely stop there if in that area again.

This is a great place to stop. We fueled at the Municipal Marina (with unfortunately a rather unhelpful young man), then picked up a mooring ball at Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. This is a huge mooring field, but we were very comfortable on U2 during strong NW winds. The Launch service is stellar, and this is a rare instance where we did not need to put our dinghy in the water. We were able to stay on the mooring ball a little longer than checkout time as long as we kept our radio on 9 and monitored for the next guest. The mooring fee is now $55 (Active Captain still shows $50), but well worth it with the shower facilities and the launch service.

This is a tough one - we really like it here and while we normally anchor out, we’ll usually take a mooring for at least a few nights whenever we pass through. Good supermarket, liquor stores, hardware store (propane), Library, post office & restaurants all under a mile away! Great dinghy dock, great launch service and exceptional launch captains - friendly, courteous & professional! So why 3 stars? The showers are abysmal! Now, I normally shower aboard Rocinante, but decided to check them out. Again, Abysmal! This is a yacht club, not a public park... Please upgrade your facilities to match the rest of your exceptional service!

Marina Response:
Thanks for the positive comments but, as far as the showers/rest rooms, as pointed out in our summary page, those facilities are the property of the town harbor marina, not the Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club. Our total involvement with the facilities is handing out keys to transients in the mooring field so they wont have to go to the harbor office. AHYC Launch Committee

Facilities available by key only while launch operates and are poorly laid out. Showers on the hallway to the commodes, rediculous! Yacht Club has extended a single row string of moorings 200 yards into what used to be anchorage. Message received, $50 per night mooring makes this an as needed stop only. Otherwise a great place for dinner and a few brews. Why do towns have to ruin it for travelers.

Our stay was awesome and the launch driver/check in person was very friendly. One important note: If searching for Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club on Dockwa, it does not appear, under that name, initials, or a search of the area. Strangely after the launch driver told us that they used Dockwa, I searched under "Highlands" and by chance found it??
