I had been a customer of this marina for twenty years, and I have watched the yearly decline of a poorly run establishment. The absentee owner runs this marina for a single reason, which is to make as much money as possible, while providing sub par services. Most marinas are run by owner operators, and in those cases, there exists a level of pride and concern. Sadly, this is not the case with Haverstraw marina. It once had great attributes, and could be so much better, if only the owner cared. I would like to see this marina get bought out and then maybe it could become a full service marina. - My heartfelt advice is to find another place to visit and or seasonally stay at, unless you don't care about customer service.
The staff is always so kind, courteous, and ameniable. Love the location. We staff here almost every fall.
Old, completely worn-out rickety, hot metal docks that our golden retriever could not tolerate walking on. Was quite an extremely long walk to land. Only thing there, is a super far walk to an overpriced restaurant that has anot endless variety of smokers. NO docklands were available to us , and we called on the phone as well as VHF in advance. Only 2 , VERY loose and severly undersized cleats in our 40 foot slip. Adjacent boat to our left, was only one foot away and hardly enough room for bumpers! Frustrating as all get out! We originally decided that this would be an ideal location based on the glowing description that was written on this site by Haverstraw marina itself. To sum up, It did NOT live up to much if anything at all that was written.
Great facility, good restaurant
Arrived at Haverstraw marina, thinking it might be a good spot to wait out an impending storm, but we got wedged into a dilapidated, very warped, and rusty old metal dock that was too tight. Our dog burned her feet on the super hot aluminum docks. No wooden docks anywhere and no where to walk our dog!
If that weren't enough, there were only 3 extremely small cleats to use to tie up our 50 foot boat, and our stern cleat came loose from the dock after only a few hours.
The haverstraw marina in inside an industrial park and is surrounded by a huge industrial parks with NOTHING around whatsoever unless you take a VERY expensive cab to a run down Shop Rite that isn't all that big. Not even anything to do in the town, and we spoke with several regulars there. Regulars aren't all that fond of transient boaters. Docks are too noisy, and place needs a makeover. Won't stop here on way back south.
Very nice marina on the Hudson river. It's a huge marina so it's a bit of a walk from your boat to land. The grounds are pretty and the facilities are clean.
We stayed here for a big weekend and it was great, staff very helpful. We loved the view from the pool along the Hudson. The bar next to the pool was great, awesome bands (dj's well they are dj's) the bartenders were always trying to get you something. We never at at the Hudson Water Club (the restaurant at the marina) prices were as high as NYC, but the bar menu was great. Sorry to say I can not comment on anything outside of the marina except if you went by boat, great bay and beach directly across the river to swim in, ran up to West Point which was great also. Just the run up the Palasades was awesome, this is not a big boat marina we met a lot of people from S.I. N.Y. with 25 footers
