Phase II of the Montauk (N.Y.) Yacht Club Resort and Marina renovation has started, according to the owner, Island Global Yachting.

Phase II of the multimillion-dollar renovation, which began during the offseason last year, coincides with the resort’s 80th anniversary and includes enhancements to the Montauk Yacht Club’s guest rooms and suites, public spaces, and meeting and conference facilities.

IGY said all construction/renovation activities for Phase II will be completed prior to the reopening of the resort in April 2009. All of the resort’s old furniture is being donated to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Program.

The Montauk Yacht Club Resort and Marina was founded in 1929 and is situated along a 22-acre parcel on Long Island's South Fork. The club's original membership included Vincent Astor, J.P. Morgan, Nelson Doubleday, Edsel Ford, Harry Payne Whitney, Thomas Eastman, John Wanamaker and Harold S. Vanderbilt.

Today, the resort offers 107 guest rooms with views of Lake Montauk and a 232-slip marina.
