About The Marblehead Yacht Club

Marblehead Yacht Club was founded in 1878 and has been a landmark in Marblehead ever since. The MYC has a reputation of being a casual and friendly club with summer outdoor dining, great launch service (3 launches), and lots of social activities for its members.  


In 2019, Marblehead Yacht Club was named Massachusetts Bay's Yacht Club of the Year, in part due to its vibrant activities and lively boating community. Its members comprise a mix of sailors, power boaters, fishermen, and kayakers – along with non-boating associate members who enjoy friendship and activities offered at the club. The goal of the Flag Officers and Board of Directors is to maintain the "Best Small Yacht Club" in New England.

Membership is open to the public. We offer Active Memberships for those desiring launch service and Associate Memberships for those who want to use the clubhouse facilities and have access to kayak storage. MYC's annual dues are modest because many members volunteer their time and skills in the operation of the Club.


If you are considering membership, we welcome you to come visit our Club and speak to our members and our Club Manager Mike Mentuck. Email Mike at or call 781-631-9771 to make arrangements – or for any questions about joining the Club. You will find our Membership Application to be an easy process.


There is public parking between the clubhouse and the Marblehead Trading yard and street parking nearby. Please be respectful of our neighbors. There is a drop off space at the front entrance for loading and unloading gear and passengers. On weekends, the Marblehead Municipal Light Department allows public parking in the section of their parking lot facing the harbor.
