Welcome to Burger Buoy
All small business' start with an idea to provide a type of service
to clients. Burger Buoy has done just that, designed and developed a
new way of providing high quality food and service to boaters on the
South Shore of Long Island.
As local boaters we have spent many
hours cruising the beautiful South Shore and countless times stayed
out longer than initially planned. Just like all boaters, we would
spent 20-30 minutes in line at a deli and went out with a cold egg
sandwich and a cold cup of coffee.
Now later in the day we would try
to decide where we could get a sandwich, more ice or maybe an ice
cream or Italian ice. Fuel docks were busy and we didn't feel like
docking and sitting at a restaurant. That is how Burger Buoy was
born. We continued to research the idea for five years before we
purchased the BB1 houseboat and started the design process. We now
have another 38' Coastal Cruiser that will be BB2 and BB Express
that will replenish the houseboats with supplies as needed.
It has taken 100's of hours planning and designing the houseboat
conversion to a floating deli that would provide a safe and easy way
to deliver high quality products to fellow boaters.
Our houseboat/deli design has many features that are truly unique in
the industry. The Galley is equipped with fire retardant walls,
exhaust hood with a fire suppression system, electronic fume
monitors that will automatically cutoff the flow of propane to the
galley, manual cutoff valves and inline gas pressure monitors that
will automatically cutoff gas supply at the equipment in addition
fire extinguishers located through out the vessel. Our cooking
equipment is of commercial grade stainless steel units. Electrical
system has been replaced and a commercial power generator supplies
the vessel with electricity. We have met or exceeded the Coast Guard
regulations as well as the Nassau County Board of Health
We have designed a one of a kind portable floating dock system that
provides our staff a safe way to hand food orders off to your boat.
You simply pull along side our dock system just like you would at a
fuel dock or your slip. We then hand you your order.
Raise us on channel 73 where we will provide another channel to
switch to and take your order. We will provide you a order # and
expected wait time. When your order is ready we will get back to you
via the same channel you ordered on and tell you which side to come
along for order pickup. It's that simple. Just like a drive thru!
If you prefer, you can text us or phone in your order as well.
On our floating docks we will also provide trash and recycling
Do to Insurance and license restrictions, no one is allowed to board
After all this work we can't just sell frozen fried food now can we!
Burger Buoy will only sell fresh, high quality products. We believe
in sharing our product line with you. Offering the best bagels in
Nassau County A&S bagels of Franklin Square is our bagel supplier.
Picked up daily on our way to Freeport these bagels will be fresh
and warm for your sandwich. Due to limited storage we will only
carry three types of bagels, plain, sesame and everything bagel.
Tulip Caterers of Franklin Square will provide their famous Cole
Slaw and salads made specifically for BB. Cold cuts and
Hot Dogs will complement our sandwich menu. Breakfast will be served
all day. Ice cream is provided by Circus Man and Rita Italian Ices
will finish off the deserts. Nuzoless Ice is sold in 10 lbs bags. We

brew the finest products with polar springs water and a special
blend of teas and coffee.

It is very important to us to hear what you would like us to carry
on our boats, please visit our "what you want" section to post your
recommendations. We will offer a voting system so everyone can vote
on what want you would like us to carry. Hey you're the client, so

bandages etc. We offer this free of charge. Severe or life
threatening injuries should be called into Coast Guard or Marine
