The Greenport Marinas make visiting Long Island’s North Fork by boat a real pleasure. They’re clean, safe, and many of them have swimming pools and restaurants. Here’s everything you need to know to have fun in Greenport with your boat.
The first three Greenport marinas I list here, Brewer Stirling Harbor Marina, Brewer Yacht Yard, and Townsend Manor Inn Marina are located in Stirling Harbor, a well sheltered, and reasonably private area.
These are where you want to stay if you’re visiting for more than a day.
Claudio’s Marina and Mitchell Park are exposed to Greenport Harbor and can get a bit rough when boat traffic is high or the wind kicks up.
Noise, especially late night noise, is another factor to consider as these two Greenport marinas are near the center of town.
This guide is as complete as I could make, but please don’t make your reservations based solely on what I’ve written here. Do your homework. Call the Greenport marinas and ask questions.
This is a full service marina / boatyard with plenty of amenities for the vacationer including as full length side piers on all fixed and floating docks that make boarding safe and convenient.

This marina maintains facilities for diesel and gas engine repairs and is especially skilled in fiberglass repair and marine carpentry. Emergency repair services are available 7 days a week.
The on site restaurant, Stirling Harbor Trattoria run by Frank & Jeanne Murphy offers simply outstanding Spanish and Italian cuisine. Seafood, steaks and a wide array of other Spanish and Italian delicacies are served in a casual setting overlooking the beautiful harbor. Their wine list is extensive and the mozzarella is made fresh right in the restaurant.
I’ve stayed here many times and until recently my father kept his boat here. Of all the Greenport marinas Stirling Harbor is my personal favorite.
Brewer Stirling Harbor Marina
1410 Manhanset Ave
Lat / Long: 41° 06.667' N / 72° 21.600' W
This is another first class, full service marina / boatyard. Owned by the same company and literally right next door to Stirling Harbor Marina, Brewer Yacht Yard is probably best known for it’s skilled carpenters and diesel mechanics.
But there’s no shortage of amenities for the vacationing boater either and what I like best about this place is the on-site restaurant, Antares.
Antares is not some greasy spoon snack bar run by a boatyard. Under separate ownership, Antares is a fine restaurant serving new American cuisine. I’ve dined here myself and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The food was great and the service was outstanding.
Brewer Yacht Yard
500 Beach Road
Lat / Long: 41° 06.566' N / 72° 20.667' W
This Greenport Marina is part of the Townsend Manor Inn. Located on the Northwestern shore of Stirling Basin the marina is well protected from weather and boat traffic.
Grounds feature swimming pool, picnic area, and restaurant & lounge. Unlike Brewer Stirling Harbor and Brewer Yacht Yard, the Townsend Manor Inn marina is within walking distance of town. You won’t feel as isolated and your feet are all the transportation you need at Townsend Manor Inn.
Townsend Manor Inn
714 Main Street
Lat / Long: 41° 06.567' N / 72° 21.690' W
Located at the end of Front Street, at Claudio’s you step off your boat and into the heart of Greenport. For convenience you can’t beat it, but this marina is not meant for more than a day trip or possibly an overnighter.
The docks at Claudio’s marina are exposed in Greenport Harbor, which means you’re going to get bounced around a lot and there’s a lot of noise from Claudio’s Clam Bar. There’s also a lack of privacy from the endless stream of tourists walking the docks.
Having said that, the cost of docking at Claudio’s is less expensive than docking at some of the other Greenport marinas and that is worth considering.
Main Street Wharf

Lat / Long: 41° 06.050' N / 72° 21.533' W
As the name implies this is the public marina at Mitchell Park. Located on Greenport Harbor this marina is a little bouncy like the marina at Claudio’s. It’s great for the day tripper.
Mitchell Park Marina
631-477-2200 - Mitchell Park
631-702-4381 - Greenport Harbor Master
Lat / Long: 41° 06.033' N / 72° 21.617' W
Definitely the smallest of the Greenport marinas, this is a small floating dock just west of Mitchell Park and at the foot of 3rd avenue. Good for smaller boats that draw 4' and under.
