Boats, Boats, and More Boats in Bridgeport Harbor

Bridgeport Harbor Marina BRIDGEPORT’S NEW FULL SERVICE YACHTING DESTINATION

The centerpiece of Steelpointe Harbor is a first-class marina facility called Bridgeport Harbor Marina with state-of-the-art docks, underground utilities, award- winning engineering and full access for the public. It was built along an award-winning 1,500 linear foot bulkhead. Along that seawall is the Steelpointe Harbor

Walk, a public space adjacent to the water connecting to retail shops, restaurants, the marina, a future park, and most importantly it provides public waterfront access to a panoramic view of the harbor. All of which is accessible by land (I-95), air or sea. The 200-plus boat slips at Bridgeport Harbor Marina are used for both seasonal and transient vessels, including a complete menu of marine services including dockage, vessel repairs, provisioning, and winter storage. The Lighthouse at Steelpointe Harbor Building serves as an anchor to the waterfront. The 48,000 sq. ft. waterfront building houses the office for the Marina on the first floor along with the Boca Oyster Bar restaurant opening onto the Harbor Walk.

The waterfront lifestyle of Steelpointe, the maritime industrial positioning of the Bridgeport Boatyard, future helipads, and residential development all make Bridgeport Harbor Marina the area’s premiere yachting, boating and waterfront destination.

The developer, Bridgeport Landing Development is a part of the RCI Group which, since the 1970s has developed and managed 9,760 apartment units, 1.9 million square feet of retail, office and commercial buildings and developed 9 marina locations consisting of more than 1,285 marine slips together with the appropriate related ancillary services.

Steelpointe Harbor is a development on one of the East Coast’s most desirable and accessible locations, strategically located between Boston and New York. This Long Island Sound Harbor site is fully entitled to a 2.8 million square foot mixed-use waterfront development. The site sits on a peninsula, adjacent to Interstate 95, minutes from Metro North and Amtrak rail, an inter and intrastate bus terminal, the Bridgeport – Port Jefferson NY Long Island Sound Ferry, and a municipal airport for private, corporate, and general aviation air service. With its connections to major north-south routes including Rt. 8, Rt.25, and I-91, its proximity to transit makes Steelpointe Harbor one of the most accessible locations in the northeast.
