Anne and Jimmy Ryan
Harbour Yacht Club and Marina has been owned and operated by the Ryan family for over 36 years. Located on Route 35 South in Mantoloking, New Jersey, we offer summer slips, winter storage and new boat sales. We are N.J.'s #1 Bayliner dealer.
When Jimmy Ryan bought the site in 1980, there was just one dock with 25 slips. Over the next two decades, he expanded the property, adding four more docks, bathroom facilities, a garage and offices. With hard work, perseverance and the help of his nephew, Mark Schmidt, he developed it into Harbour Yacht Club and turned it into one of N.J.'s premier marinas.
Jimmy Ryan and Mark Schmidt
In 1999, on a trip to Ireland, Jimmy met Galway native, Anne and it was love at first sight. They married in 2001 and life was wonderful! But on October 29, 2012, Superstorm Sandy hit and the area was devastated. Houses were damaged, destroyed or washed away. HYC suffered tremendous losses. Anne and Jimmy were heartbroken to see the photo of their marina on national news reports, on the front pages of newspapers and in "National Geographic" magazine. In one night, a lifetime of work was wiped out.
Against all odds and with unrelenting determination, Jimmy began to rebuild. Friends rallied around and customers offered to assist in any way they could. Jimmy put together an incredible crew and they worked tirelessly in freezing temperatures, without electric, gas or running water. As often happens in times of trouble, it brought the HYC family even closer together. The marina reopened on Memorial Day, 2013. It was an amazing testament to all those who helped.
Today, Harbour Yacht Club is better than ever. Jimmy and Anne live at the marina, they work there side by side and they love to spend their summer evenings on the docks. They take great pride in the marina and are grateful to the wonderful crew and customers, their HYC family, who have made Harbour Yacht Club and Marina what it is today.
