EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF LONG ISLAND'S
HISTORIC GOLD COAST
Situated in the heart of Long Island's Gold Coast, just 30 miles from Manhattan, Oyster Bay Harbor's natural beauty affords visitors a temporary respite from bustling city life. Oyster Bay is known for its spectacular sunsets, diverse wildlife, and the impressive estates that line the bay.
Oyster Bay is home to former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and is currently the only source of traditionally farmed oysters from Long Island, providing up to 90% of all the oysters harvested in New York State!
SAIL IN COMFORT
You'll sail aboard the sailing yacht WINDSWEPT, a meticulously kept Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 36i featuring a spacious shaded cockpit and a secured deck. WINDSWEPT is professionally maintained and equipped with modern electronics and USCG approved safety gear. Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, interested in learning to sail, or planning a client outing, your time aboard WINDSWEPT will be both memorable and enjoyable!
GETTING TO THE BOAT
WINDSWEPT is moored in Oyster Bay Harbor, on the North Shore of Long Island. Upon booking, directions to the boat will provided in your confirmation e-mail. For those traveling from New York City, the marina is steps away from the Oyster Bay LIRR station or a 20-minute Uber ride from the Hicksville LIRR station.
Oyster Bay has quite a few local attractions, restaurants, and bars that you may want to consider before or after your charter, many of which are in walking distance of the marina!

“My husband and I booked a 3 hour sunset charter while on vacation in NY and were blown away by the natural beauty of Oyster Bay Harbor. Jonathan was a great captain - attentive and welcoming - he even taught us the basics of how to sail! The boat was beautiful - luxurious and comfortable. This experience was the highlight of our vacation and we would not hesitate to book again!
