Located at the east end of Long Island, Gurney's Star Island Resort in Montauk, NY, is a picturesque scene within a charming coastal hamlet.
Formerly known as Montauk Yacht Club, the marina is reintroducing itself as a deluxe travel destination with renovations catered to guest satisfaction. With a $13 million full-property upgrade, boaters have a lot to look forward to at this gorgeous island resort.
The spacious marina has 232 wet slips with 10 floating slips for boats 30 feet or less. Accommodating boats up to 300 feet with a 12 feet max draft, the marina offers six superyacht berths. Most slips are geared for boats ranging from 30 feet to 100 feet. If you're visiting this summer, land storage is available for boats on their own trailer up to 30 feet.
Safety is assured with security and boat repair on-site, and mechanics are available by request. Pump-out service is complimentary and can be reached on VHF CH. 9. Restrooms and laundry are provided, and even though there is no fueling station on-site, three are located only 1,000 to 3,000 yards from the docks.
Just minutes from the island's main attractions, the 107-room resort overlooking Lake Montauk offers activities for all ages. You can chill at one of the beautiful sandy white beaches or get adventurous and hike along coastal state parks such as Camp Hero or Hither Hills. However, with three luxurious pools, three restaurants, two bars, a spa and fitness center, picnic areas and a private beach, you may never want to leave.
The sister property, Gurney's Montauk Resort & Marina, is just a few miles across the island with a complimentary shuttle that travels hourly between the two. A major benefit is the upgraded Wi-Fi that has improved coverage and increased bandwidth.
The variety of restaurants provided on-site is sure to satisfy. Showfish is a fine, yet engaging seafood restaurant open for dinner and brunch, The Pool Club is a poolside restaurant to sip, swim and relax, and Il Forno Market features specialty gourmet pizzas and freshly baked goods as well as an array of salads and sandwiches, says George Filopoulos, owner of Gurney's Resorts.
"Montauk boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, great restaurants, outdoor activities such as surfing and paddle boarding, and a lively nightlife scene," he adds. You don't want to miss the new action on the island.
