The Keyport Yacht Club is located on beautiful Raritan Bay, only a mile from the Garden State Parkway. The bay is a boater’s dream: Open to Atlantic Ocean breezes, but guarded by a natural breakwater, Sandy Hook State Park. Raritan Bay offers many great destinations including New York City and shoreside towns and villages — Perth Amboy, Atlantic Highlands, and Great Kills, as well as charming Keyport itself, only a two-block stroll from the club.
Our clubhouse has a bar, game room, cozy fireplace and an elegant Ward Room where we hold our meetings and many of our events and a fantastic large kitchen. We also provide the usual club amenities like showers, fresh water, and ice.
During the summer season, members and guests may also enjoy a cocktail on the upper deck overlooking the fleet.
Our classic, bristol condition launches are available to transport you to and from your boat. While KYC does not have an on-site restaurant, there are a number of quality restaurants available within walking distance or a short cab ride from the clubhouse.
