The Newport Yacht Club & Marina, a marina on New York harbor operated by Island Global Yachting, has closed until further notice over safety concerns of the pier that allows access and egress for the marina.

According to marina owner Newport Associates Development Co., there is no time frame set for reopening the marina. The marina offered 12 of its 154 slips for yachts up to 200 feet (61m).

Marina guests and tenants are encouraged to call the Newport Yacht Club & Marina hotline at 201-626-5550, or visit www.igy-newport.com.
