Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Centerport Harbor, NY
Centerport is a hamlet in Suffolk County, New York, United States, on the North Shore of Long Island. Formerly known as Little Cow Harbor in about 1700, as Centreport in 1836, and as Centerport after 1895, the name refers to its geographic position midway between the east and west boundaries of the town of Huntington.
Huntington and its surrounding hamlets mark the east end of Long Island’s renowned “Gold Coast”, the name deriving from the traditional wealth and gentility associated with the area. The association dates back to the early twentieth century in which many affluent families built their homes along the north shore of the island. In Centerport, an example of this is the estate of William Kissam Vanderbilt II, otherwise known as Eagles Nest.
Centerport is highly residential, characterized by winding driveways and beachfront hills. As is common among the many beachfront locations on Long Island’s North Shore, Centerport has developed a large boating and sailing culture. An important part of this culture is the Centerport Yacht Club, which was founded in 1947 and has served as the social and athletic focal point for the boating community in both Centerport and its surrounding areas. The yacht club sponsors a variety of racing fleets and regattas every year generally beginning in the late spring and ending mid-autumn.
