The Boston Yacht Club is a great community for people interested in all aspects of boating to get together! It is a private club and we rely on the good sponsorship of friends to keep our standards of excellence in membership.
Currently, there are a couple of levels of membership: Regular and Social
Regular membership enables members to enjoy all aspects of the club from the restaurant to the launches and waterfront; to using the club's sailboats to go for an afternoon sail and have a place to park during any activity. There are also paddle boards for member use. Regular membership is divided into 3 age groups with differing dues for the younger folk! It carries a higher commitment with an entrance fee, annual dues, restaurant and bar minimums and an annual cap ex fee. Reciprocal dining agreements with other clubs is of course included.
Social membership is an
annual commitment with an entrance fee. There are no voting or waterfront
rights (i.e. use of launch or docks) associated with the membership. They
do have full access to the restaurant, parking and other non-waterfront related
activities. There are minimum amounts that will be assessed for the restaurant and bar and there is an annual cap ex fee. Social members do have reciprocal dining agreement's with other clubs, restricted parking and all other non-waterfront related activities.
The process of joining is to have current members sponsor and second you and also present several letters of recommendation. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to collect the letters and address any questions on the candidate’s behalf to the Membership chair.
