Reviews for Nyack Boat Club
Nice Spot to stop., 2016-06-12
Captain: , Cinnaminson (30)

We stopped on our way down the Hudson and enjoyed a night on a mooring. Great View of the bridge . Nice boat club and great town and restaurants in walking distance.

Good overnight, can't say more, 2016-06-06
Captain: , York, ME (1971)

We were unable to reach Hook Mountain YC or locate their guest moorings, but the NBC launch answered our hails and led us to one of their guest moorings. The mooring held our 22,000 lb boat well through a gusty thunderstorm, so no problems there.

The launch operator was friendly and told us a little about the town. He reported that the launch runs until 10 PM (this was on a Sunday). Unfortunately, due to the weather, we decided to remain on board.

I can't say this is a protected location, out at the SW corner of the mooring field, but we had no real problems with either wakes or waves, even during the storm.

A secure mooring with launch service for $20 seemed a pretty good deal, if not quite as good as the free moorings reportedly available at Hook Mountain.

Nice Facility, bumpyish night, 2015-07-13
Captain: , Norwalk Yacht Club (102)

Traveling down the Hudson River from Hyde Park we stopped here after our first 60 mile day. Called on VHF 09 and was greeted promptly and cordially. The launch attendant saw the lines on his first choice (just a little tired) and brought us to a second.

We were informed the launch runs from 8am until 10pm. Went ashore to pick up crew and explore the very nice clubhouse. The cafe was open and the baby rack of lamb looked and smelled delicious.

At stated in other reviews, the mooring field is open to the river. Our mooring was one of the furthest out. The wind was from the north which gave it a LONG fetch. With the tide coming in against the wind our boat did not know which way to go. We got bounced a bit that night.

That said, we will return on our trip back up the river in the fall.

The best marina on our trip so far, 2015-06-01
Captain: , Holland Michigan (60)

Our first experience with mooring and it was easy. The marina boat shuttle attendant was very helpful and we appreciated the ride to the dock so we could go out to eat. Very friendly members really made us welcome. Wish we lived close so we could join here. Great people, food, and facilities. Thanks to everyone there

Let me add my appreciation to the members of this club. We stopped looking for a transient mooring. The club manager was not around. We pulled up to the dock to see if a transient mooring was available. A member was also docked and readily helped us. He was working on storm repairs to his boat. When we couldn't locate the manager, he offered his mooring for the night. Seems like a great family club; facilities were nice and the town is wonderful. Great food. Check it out on Yelp or Open Table.

Friendly Yacht Club, 2014-04-17
Captain: , Belleville, On. Canada (122)

Wow, these people are awesome. We showed up after 66 hours off shore, the guest moorings wern't in yet, and the club wasn't open for another two weeks. One of the members allowed us his mooring for 5 nights, another took us to get propane, and everyone was so friendly. The facilities are improving greatly after Huricaine Sandy tortured the club. Laundry is a short walk up town, a couple of small grocery stores nearby. Just a great place. This is a self-help yacht club, and they enjoy the company of other like minded sailors. We will not miss this stop whenever we travel the Hudson.

Used the dinghy dock - nice club, 2013-06-25
Captain: , Key Biscayne FL (3103)

They are recovering from Sandy. Main facility is ok but they some boats on the moorings and the floats ended up on top of their dock. Lots on new wood shows how much damage there was. But they are up and running.
This was the only landing I could find. The small marina in basin to the south is no more. All floats are gone and it is fenced off. The floating dock further south in the public access area is new but there are no cleats on purpose. For kayaks launching.
Town was great. There are 5 barber shops within one block. Great Italian at Turiellos on Main St.

What a great Find!!!, 2012-09-14
Captain: , Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (366)

Pulled into the mooring field wanting to stay the night, ended up staying two and planning to stay a couple more. Very helpful members. Very neat little town with some great restaurants.

No bugs and quiet, 2012-08-20
Captain: , Lindenhurst, NY (316)

Spent one night on guest mooring. Club launch helped me get boat attached to mooring since I was alone. Easy trip across river next morning for 24/7 self serve refuel at Tarrytown Marina.

Really Nice Club, 2011-12-31
Captain: , Atlantic Highlands (58)

As noted, a do it yourself club. Lots of restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Sitting in a rocking chair on the club veranda as the sun sets is very relaxing after a day of dodging barges and ships along the Hudson.

Nyack Boat Club, 2011-01-23
Captain: , Stony Point, NY (852)

Do-it-yourself club with mostly sailboats. Active racing fleet and one-design boats. Guest moorings available. Tender on the weekends otherwise dinghy in to charming clubhouse and snack bar. Short walk to center of Nyack with many excellent restaurants, theater and antique shopping. Downside is the mooring field has no protection from wakes or the river, which can build up as it is very wide here. A nice stop with very friendly and helpful people.
