We are located in protected Hempstead Harbor on Long Island's ‘Gold Coast’. Earning its place in yachting history at the turn of the last century, Glen Cove was home to the original clubhouse of the New York Yacht Club. Surrounded by water on three sides, Glen Cove presently has over ten miles of waterfront including three public beaches, two nature preserves, a public golf course and a public park. The beautiful countryside, large harbor and short boat ride to New York City make it an ideal location and home port for your yacht.

About the Area

The history of Glen Cove, like many other settlements on the North Shore of Long Island, is closely associated with the history of its waterfront. For 250 years, Glen Cove was part of the Town of Oyster Bay. However, as the population grew to over 10,000 residents, it became evident that the existing machinery of government was no longer adequate. On June 8, 1917 the Governor signed into law a bill proclaiming Glen Cove to become its own City.

In the beginning of the 20th Century, Glen Cove began to see an influx of wealthy industrialists, bankers and business people who built lavish estates, many along the waterfront. Many of these estates are still standing and are in use today as schools, houses of worship and executive retreats.

Glen Cove and the fabled Gold Coast area was once a summer home to turn-of-the-century tycoons, such as the Vanderbilts, Phipps and Guggenheims. Many of the opulent mansions and gardens are open for visitors. Nearby are also historical museums, arboretums, two working gristmills, indoor shopping malls, and several picturesque nautical villages. The area's character dates back to President George Washington's days of travel along the shorelines' winding roads back in 1790. Today, the high speed ferry transports visitors across Long Island Sound from the Connecticut Coast to Glen Cove, while the "Thomas Jefferson," an elegant replica of the side-wheel paddle steamer, offers narrated history tours along the coast.

Whether keeping your boat at Safe Harbor's Glen Cove Yacht Yard to be near to New York City, but in a protected, safe and tranquil harbor; or if you are visiting while cruising Long Island Sound, you can expect the same dedication to serving you and your family as you find at all Safe Harbor Marinas.

In addition to wonderful waterfront activities, Glen Cove also boasts nature preserves, museums and wonderful restaurants. The Welwyn Nature Preserve consists of 204 beautiful acres along the coastline and is also home to the Holocaust Center of Nassau County.

Winter Storage

There are various choices for storage: boats can be stored in the water, on land (outside), or inside our secure storage buildings. We offer three travelifts, which can accommodate 25-60 tons. Our vigilant staff maintain a regular schedule during the winter storage season to regularly check and inspect boats. We want to make sure that every boat is properly supported and cradled all winter long.


Boat Servicing
Take advantage of your boat’s ‘down time’ to tune up and upgrade for the summer sailing season. Our service team is available to take care of almost every maintenance, repair, or improvement – whether mechanical, electrical, finish work, carpentry, or rigging.
