Welcome to Star Island Yacht Club and Marina
Star Island Yacht Club attracts a wide variety of people year-round with a passion for cruising and fishing. Fishermen and boaters come from all over the Island and up and down the East Coast to enjoy the excitement of seasonal sport fishing and access to an extensive fleet of charter boats. Star Island is also host to many fishing tournaments, cruising club rendezvous, and catered events, as well as Star Island’s own planned tournaments, including its renown annual shark tournament.
With its unique resemblance of a star floating on the ocean, Star Island Yacht Club has come a long way from the boat yard it once was. Sam Gershowitz and his team have turned it into a great destination for boaters on the East Coast. “It’s a beautiful place,” Gershowitz says with pride. “It’s a yacht club and a marina, and we cater to people here. It's a very comfortable place to hang around.”
No marina in the area offers more facilities and services. The Ship’s Store is one of the largest tackle shops with bait of every type, an expert staff, marine supplies including electrical, polishes and waxes, cleaning materials, marine safety equipment, boat batteries, collectors’ items, groceries, and a full repair service. Visitors can sit down for a casual breakfast, lunch and dinner at Star Island Restaurant, serving fresh locally caught seafood. Spend Saturday nights at Star Island Restaurant for live poolside music and dancing overlooking Lake Montauk and the ocean. With all it has to offer, Star Island Yacht Club is an inviting club and marina for all. We invite you to consider the possibilities at Star Island.
