Long Branch, New Jersey
We are a friendly, family oriented, member operated private yacht club. Members work together on many projects for the benefit of all. Whether it's cleaning up the house in preparation for the season, bubbling the docks, trimming the hedges or just sprucing up the place, we all work together to make PPYC a better place. We have at least 10 scheduled social events during the year. Our 4th of July picnic often exceeds a turnout of over 300 members, family and guests. Spontaneous parties pop up regularly. Commissioning Day Ceremonies are complete in the Naval tradition, right down to the blast of a cannon.
Patten Point Yacht Club has 63 slips on three floating docks which can accommodate boats from 23 to 50 feet in length. Each slip is equipped with power, water and cable TV outlets. PPYC also has 18 small boat slips which can accomodate boats 22 feet or less in length for members who wish to keep a second boat at the club. There are also spaces for jet skis. The club also maintains a holding tank pump-out system which features several pumping outlets built right into the docks. There is no need to leave your slip, or to call a pump-out to empty your holding tank. We also have two power and water supplied T-docks which are reserved for guest and visiting boaters.
For members who wish to winter their vessels in the water at the club, our bubbler system for the docks and pilings is available at no charge. In addition, bubbler hoses for individual boats for may be purchased through the club.

The house is adorned with beautiful designs of Patten's day including turned post woodwork, garlanded medallion ceilings, a Victorian balustrade and several exquisite mantels.Our boating home features a large, modern kitchen, a fully equipped bar, a recently remodeled sitting room, a great room, and a wrap-a-around enclosed porch/dining area over-looking Pleasure Bay. The house is the focal point for our many activities, parties and meetings throughout the year.
