Marina, boat repairs and dockage

Welcome to the Island Boatyard

The Island Boatyard & Marina is located on Shelter Island, New York, between the north and south forks of Long Island. We are located in West Neck Harbor which is well known for its natural buffers that limit wave and wind action for your boat's protection as well as your comfort. The Marina has 80 slips that can accommodate power or sail boats from 15 feet to 60 feet. Seasonal transient slips are available as is our pool, restaurant, Shipwreck bar and free shuttle van that you can use to explore the Island. Gas and diesel from our newly installed tanks and fuel delivery system are available 7 days a week at our fuel dock as well the sanitation pump out.

Peter has done several small and large projects for my old Victorian home on Grove Street. He’s always incredibly professional and accommodating. I know I can trust him to work diligently even when I’m away on vacation.
People have been complimenting my bathroom nonstop since Peter remodeled it three years ago. Everything’s still got that new sheen and the tilework is just awesome.
I’ve been hiring the Sweeneys since I first moved into my house over 70 years ago. They did my kitchen cabinets, fixed my drains, and even rewired the lights in my bedroom into a single switch! There’s nothing the Sweeney’s can’t do.
I had this toilet that always had a problem. Either it was a leak or a plug. It was always giving me a headache. I’d hired other plumbers in the neighborhood, but problems would always come back. Since Peter worked on it last year, it’s been working perfectly. I’m so grateful!

About the Boatyard


I started apprenticing for my dad, Peter Sweeney, Jr. when I was twelve, but even before that I was watching him work all the time. My grandpa established our company in 1918, back when we specialized in carpentry and woodwork. Dad picked up new trades and expanded our business. I’ve been servicing the greater Wichita area for over 15 years and am about to bring my oldest son in as an assistant.
