The Boathouse: East End Waterfront Private Event Location
A true hidden gem, The Boathouse Shelter Island is a private event space featuring over 200 feet of waterfront overlooking West Neck Harbor offering incredible sunset views. The recently renovated 4,000 square foot space located at the Island Boatyard & Marina on Shelter Island, debuts a new look with versatility for any style event. The structure’s open ceiling features original wood beams, exposed stainless steel ducts and simple chandeliers creating a chic yet rustic style. The dark wood floors lead to the full accordion doors that open to the 1,600 square foot deck revealing the incredible water view. The deck extends the entertaining space with a classic blue and white striped awning, which also features flaps for colder evenings. Situated on 18 acres of land on picturesque Shelter Island, The Boathouse includes an additional five acres of outdoor event space.
The event space includes a large dining/event space as well as a prep area, comfortable sitting room, and three bathrooms. Additionally, a gorgeous 42-foot Grand Banks classic vessel is available for use for events hosted at The Boathouse as a bridal suite, arrival vessel or small group use. The Boathouse Shelter Island works with several preferred vendors for events - event planners, caterers, lighting, music, rentals, photography, florists, transportation, beauty services and accommodations.
