About Us

We welcome you to the Yacht Club of Stone harbor in 2019 for our 90th season!

Situated on the bay, the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor is home to one of the best sunsets in South Jersey. Members take advantage of this picturesque scene while having a cocktail on our deck, or dining in one of our two bayfront dining rooms. Throughout the summer, our families enjoy a wide range of sailing, power boating and other sport activities, as well as social and community service events. Our Youth Activities Program (YAP) provides seven weeks of instruction and fun for the children of our members. Additionally, the Club is available for weddings and special events. Our on-site coordinator will assist in menu planning, décor, vendors and more to ensure you special day is stylish, sophisticated and fun.

Come aboard and enjoy our scenic views, calm waters and delectable menu selections year-round!
  • History
    • In 1911 The Stone Harbor Yacht Club was built for Stone Harbor Realty Company by John Larsen, grandfather of recently deceased Fleet Historian, Jane Scott. The Club failed during the Depression. But in 1929, Jane's father, Clarence O. Letzkus, along with a small group of men, reorganized the club as The Yacht Club of Stone Harbor by selling proprietary memberships. The 1911 building is used to this day by members and their guests. An exhibit including Club history can be seen at the Stone Harbor Museum. Now you will see an exhibit on the Club's history installed at the Club.
