Facilities are run down but functional. Staff is very helpful. Location is good - restaurants, groceries, and public transport all close by.

Launch guided me to my mooring. Friendly people on the dock. Tons of eating options nearby, and the neighborhood felt safe after dark. Best boating value in the NY City area by far!

Great harbor. Dave the manager, the folks we met and the Launch captains were very helpful and friendly. Location is right in the middle of restaurants, groceries and beverage shops. Perfect stop before going offshore around NJ and beyond.

UPDATE: we enjoyed our stay in the spring so much that we returned in the fall! They treat you like family here!
Not enough stars to rate this Club!!
We picked up a ball on short notice (we were too big for the docks) and could not have been more pleased with the warm reception from the Club. The commodore himself, along with two other members, stopped their task of moving a boat through the yard and met us on the dock to help tie up for check in. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful; we felt like family and kinda hated to leave so we stayed an extra night. There is launch service included, which runs on demand between the mooring field and the docks. Showers are very clean; sailors lounge is roomy & comfortably furnished. Nothing fancy here but everything you need. Only disadvantage is that the subway station is about a mile away. Not a problem for us since we have bikes and there’s a well defined bike lane plus we like to walk the neighborhoods. I mention this as it may be an issue for those w mobility concerns. Looking forward to returning in the fall.

This place is a perfect stop while visiting or passing through NYC. The yacht club members are lovely and welcoming. Showers are decent. The little grocery store right across the street is surprisingly well-equipped. It’s a reasonable walk to the Sheepshead Bay train station to take the Q directly to Time Square. And you can’t beat the price! This is definitely our place going forward, whenever we take our boat through New York.

Super friendly, super casual, with launch service. Could not be better!

We decided to stay in this marina on our way to Fire Island. We dock our boat in NYC but wanted to leave Thursday evening and sleep somewhere before making long trip on Friday. The marina is protected from the ocean, and only a 1-3 hour sail from the city. Beautiful to see so many sailboats all lined up. Great place to stop by whether you’re sailing to Long Island, coming from Long Island, or going up or down the East River or Hudson.

This place is amazing! Everyone is so nice and friendly!
Great location about 25 min walk to the subway at sheepshead bay station.
Awesome small store across the street and an Aldi market about 15 min walk or so. Mooring was great! we will be back!

Very friendly people—staff and members. Free launch service was very helpful. Great place to stay for access to Manhattan and Coney Island using the MYA bus and subway passes.

Wonderful people, we felt welcomed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Really like the yacht club, the mooring was well spaced and with a double line very secured. Launch service easy and rapid. Josh is responsive and with nearby public transportation you can explore Brooklyn and Manhattan. For pumpout you will need to go to Shell Bank Creek where there is a state of NY free self service pumpout station.

Arrived for one day, stayed 4 in total. Great staff and very helpfull. Protected bay with close access to nice restaurants in walking distance. Take the bus/train and visit anywhere in New York. Had a great time, will be back on our way south.

Nicest people in the world but you pay a fee that is higher then it should be based on the overall condition of the docks

Very convenient location, we were guided to a slip and welcomed by club members. Friendly people and nice facilities, can't wait to find a reason to return!

David and all the people at the yacht club were very friendly. They make us feel like a member of the yacht club. The club is 15 min walk from the Subway.

A place for sailors by sailors! This club is a gem! After a few minutes talking with the members of that club, you will feel like one of the gang. For us, it was home away from home. We stayed at this club for 1 week. Take time to discuss with the members, they will make you discover New York from a new perspective, they will give you a lot of information on Brooklyn and all other boroughs of New York. You will easily feel the friendship between them. Thank you for your hospitality! Johanne and Daniel SV Vivere 1

Very nice and affordable Yacht Club with helpfull members. We stayed here for 4 nights to visit the area. Subway station at only 20 minutes.

Just awful. Arrived 5:30 pm. Led me to mooring. Single word mumbled answers on the VHF. After going to mooring I asked when launch would end, and was told 445. Inflated a dinghy and went to shore. I asked the guy questions and he walked away while I was talking to him. I asked him what time the bathroom closed and he said 8 PM. I asked him about a key and he walked away and told me there would be no facilities for us after 8 PM. It was probably a single incident due to a bad employee, as I am sure that the yacht club is populated by generally nice and gracious people. However, this was a terrible experience. given that we did not receive any launch and we did not receive use of any facilities, it is questionable that we received the services that were advertised on Dockwa. We could have just dropped an anchor for free. Obviously, I am not amused.
I am sorry to hear about your experience with us. We do not make excuses for what happened but we will do our best to rectify all the points you made in your review and hope that you will give us a second chance in the near future.

David and everyone at the Miramar Yacht Club are amazing. Easily the warmest welcome we've received since we departed Maine and started cruising south. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone passing through NYC. Their Ensign fleet races on Wednesdays and there's fireworks off Coney Island on Fridays all summer. Check out Roll N Roaster for good food right up the street. As others have said, be sure to check the tides if you draw more than 4 feet. It's quite shallow around Green Buoy #7.

Very nice place to take a mooring. Just some trouble with the launch service. Launch does not run until 9:00 am on Sunday.

It was such a pleasure to stay in Miramar Yacht Club. David is a nice man, always available to help whenever needed. All the people in the Yacht Club were nice and helpful. We felt like home there. The tender service, always available, is really easy and useful.

The staff was great, the price can’t be beat.
The shoaling in the channel is real, I arrived at low tide and followed a big charter fishing boat in. No problem.
by Andrew M. - Verified user on May 19, 2022
The weather turned foggy and wet, so we were socked in for a 36 hours. Miramar ended up being our home base for two nights rather than just one. Honestly, these are the nicest, friendliest fellow boaters I've met in all my travels. Everyone is super outgoing and I've lost count of the number of people who just come up to me and introduced themselves.
Moorings here are a bargain, especially compared to anywhere else this close to New York, but there is as much expertise and available help here as any of the most expensive transient slips in the area.

A simple overnight but Tom rolled out the red carpet. Best option near/in NYC.

Tight mooring field. Well protected. Charter fishing boats wake through the channel all day and evening.

What an amazing stay at Miramar Yacht Club. True corinthian sailors. As we pulled in, we hailed the club, and the launch immediately met us and escorted us to our mooring ball. A couple of members sailed by and welcomed us. Every time we walked into the clubhouse, members offered us advice/support, and they invited us to their Labor Day party. Kids had a blast doing activities with members’ kids. A great bunch of people. Mooring was well protected and quiet. Thank you MYC members, and we’ll be back!

Stay best summed up by my wife’s comment on our trip home after we left. “I wish we had a sailing club near us that had people like that”. I agreed. What a warm friendly membership who we enjoyed meeting and sharing a beverage with. In addition, their local knowledge was very helpful. We look forward to staying here again.

What a great place! Huge value for a NYC location. It's a no frills club that makes you feel like part of the family. The harbor provides a safe anchorage. The management is super helpful, flexible, and they'll share what's in the fridge. Would highly recommend.

Easy launch service. You use their lines on mooring balls and ours was crusted with barnacles and slime. Facilities were adequate.

Friendly club, mooring convenient and secure, launch service fine. Club's pool (if you care) is shared with a neighboring apartment building. Facilities could use a face-lift, but the showers were a heck of a lot better than the one on board!
