Oyster Bay Harbour and Yachtclub is royally spread over a 900 acre peninsula across the Amelia River from Fernandina Beach.
All effort has been given to maintain the atmosphere of the entire peninsula in the style of the Southern Plantation it once was. There is only one access road into the gated community where a limited number of beautiful tracts are available to complement more than 150 attractive single family dwellings and luxurious homes already in use.
Closer to the marina stretches an exclusive Townhome Park currently receiving its final infrastructural coating before construction starts and the Yachtclub and Marina neighbors to luxurious, exclusive and very spacious Island Villas. Our real estate offering also includes Marina Slips up to 76ft LOA and a limited number of previously owned resales.
Cherished for its supreme location and natural resources, the Fernandina Beach area of Florida’s First Coast was one of the most fought over pieces of real estate in the new world. So bitter were these skirmishes that the original land owner Henry O’Neill, founder of New Hope Plantation, was mortally wounded defending Spanish Florida against an attack by invaders from Georgia. For bravery and service to the crown, the King of Spain granted Henry’s widow, Margaret, additional lands and a monthly pension.
The legacy that began with Henry and Margaret remained in the family throughout the years, surviving occupations by the English Red Coats, Buccaneers, Union troops and the devastating effects of the Great Depression until the beginning of World War II.
The former plantation was broken into large tracts of land and sold, with the prized peninsula becoming the foundation for Oyster Bay Harbour many years later. The original plantation house is long gone but the history, the beautiful trees, old rice fields and deep waterways remain valuable heirlooms that future generations are sure to enjoy.
