Protected by a breakwater, Stamford harbor is divided into two branches. Yacht Haven Marina can be found on the East branch, with over 350 slips.

Accomplishing a lot with a little is the hallmark of Safe Harbor's Yacht Haven Marina. In addition to storing over 200 boats year-round in water, the service staff includes mechanics, carpenters, and general maintenance experts who can accomplish just about anything from the waterline up. And, if your project requires hauling or specialized machinery, we will arrange for your boat to be transported to one of our neighboring facilities for care.

If you are looking for first-class amenities, just minutes from New York City, Yacht Haven Marina is an ideal location. Midtown Manhattan is only a 45-minute ride by train or car, and the train station is nearby.

Whether you are a casual cruiser, an ocean voyager, or a competitive sailboat racer, you will find a home for your boat at Yacht Haven Marina.

About the Area

Stamford, deeded in 1640, is the fourth-largest city in the state of CT, and the eighth largest throughout New England. Originally known as Rippowam by its early Native American inhabitants, the name was later changed to Stamford, after a town in England. By the Eighteenth century, one of the primary industries of the town was merchandising by water, which was possible due to Stamford's proximity to New York.

New York residents built summer homes on the shoreline, starting in the late 19th century, and even back then there were some who moved to Stamford permanently and started commuting to Manhattan by train. This practice became even more popular in later years, however.

Today, Yacht Haven Marina is a convenient and popular homeport for New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey boaters. Situated in close proximity to many well-known yacht clubs, Yacht Haven also serves as a hub for major sailboat racing on Long Island Sound. For those desiring a convenient port for cruising, some popular weekend destinations include Oyster Bay, Northport, the Norwalk Islands, and Port Jefferson. The Long Island Forks, Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket are also favorite destinations for boaters based here.
