The LONG BRANCH ICE BOAT AND YACHT CLUB maintains an active fleet on the Shrewsbury River in Long Branch, NJ. that enjoys fishing, cruising, sailing, ice boating, skiff and ice boat building and has a collection of historic ice boats, artifacts, and photographs. 

    The club is busiest during the summer season, but we have an active winter fleet that sails on home ice and travels to compete on “hard water".  We hold several events such as annual crab and clam feasts, fishing contest and the famous "Thunder on the The Shrewsbury" which attracts NJ. Speed Skiffs and other fast boats from around the country.
