About


Since its inception, the Club like a great ship, has been able to survive wars, storms and financial problems because its members have always responded to the call for help.

Members, both past and present, should truly be proud to say that they have been a part of Point Independence Yacht Club and have helped mold its great history.

In closing, I want to say that it is not only a privilege but an honor to be your Commodore and to be part of this great family.

Great little stopover, excellent and clean facilities, friendly people, interesting and scenic town. Altogether an excellent stay!

Three great nights. Nice mooring balls, great bathrooms/showers and the best marina laundry we’ve seen. Fuel was inexpensive snd the employees couldn’t be more helpful. The town has an inexpensive launch that runs until 9:45 PM. $3 round trip, $4 if there are 2 of you. The negative is there is no room at the dinghy dock. Everyone tied up tight and half raise their engines. It would be great if they added space.

Docks are in great shape and the harbor is quite well protected. We pulled in and there was lots of help including club members to get us tied up in windy conditions. Heads and laundry clean and modern. Lots of green space for dog walking. Recommend!

This is a hidden gem! The Marina is pristine, including the beautiful upgraded facilities. We were welcomed with open arms by the local boaters and included in Yacht Club events. The Staff provides excellent information about the area and places to see. We will return every year to this protected, spacious, quiet, welcoming Yacht Center! PT Independence has become our favorite destination in Buzzards Bay. I can’t say enough about the spectacular Staff and Residents!

I picked up a mooring in Onset Bay for hurricane/TS Elsa with predicted 40-50K winds. There were several other boats that also did the same. There were no issues with moored boats. There were a couple of anchored boats that dragged, but no casualties. It was just a bit more comforting for a single handed sailor on a mooring for this storm. Thank you sooooo much PIYC for accommodating me and several other sailors!

Excellent staff and service. Waited out Elsa on a mooring ball, and there were no issues. Three anchored vessels dragged during the storm, but we were safe and sound. Onset is a beautiful town to explore. We'll be back!

Very convenient location when transmitting the Cape Cod Canal. Very quiet and well maintained mooring field. The club house house has new, beautiful showers and rest rooms.

My husband and I had the pleasure of being a guest at Point Independence Yacht Club for 5 night. From the reservation to the day we left, The Steward Steve and his staff were fantastic. The boat owners are very nice and they keep their boat in fantastic shape. We look forward to docking here again. Thank you PIYC.. :-)

Best stop on the Cape. Dockmaster Steve and his crew are fantastic. They will do anything to make your stay a pleasant one. Great facilities. In walking distance to great restaurants. Whenever we are here, we feel more like a club member than a transient boater.

Our first stay years ago was out of necessity. Rough seas, a stuck bridge, and lack of daylight altered our plans. A member of the yacht club overheard myself and a friend on the VHF talking about where we could stay. They guided us into a slip. We have been back every year since. Everyone has always been warm and welcoming. Dog friendly, A short walk to town, Good fuel prices. The way a yacht club should be. Thank u for another great stay.

The staff on the fuel dock were very friendly and helpful. We picked up a mooring for one night, and did laundry. They have three brand new showers that will be approved for use this Monday. (The only thing is it takes 3 full minutes for the water to get warm!) The harbor was very quiet.

It was our first time in the harbor and we draw 7’ so we were very cautious. When we called the club they were very non-chalet and gave us vague directions to our mooring. Due to high winds we never got into our dinghy to head to shore, so I don’t know how the facilities were.

We spent a few nights here last year and had a terrific experience. Not so great this year. I believe the YC was late getting things going this year due to Covid-19 and the phased reopening of the State. However, they knew that and should have put out information to that effect. For example, they were still finishing up a huge shower project and showers had not been inspected and permitted for use. We were told we could use them at our own risk. Upon closer inspection, we found the showers to be filthy and pretty much unusable for that reason. Also, the club advertises that wi-fi is available which is untrue as far as transients are concerned as far as we can tell. Transients are generally put on the far dock and the internet signal does not reach that far. Supposedly Comcast has been unable to find a way to extend the signal that far. Location is handy to the village and restaurants, club members are friendly, but we feel the club should have used the message area in the Dockwa reservation request form to warn of current short-comings. We were able to use the gas grills available on the premises and some of the restaurants will deliver to the YC if going to the village is inconvenient.

Barry, dockmaster, was terrific. Cold rainy Sunday, he was quick to come out and help us dock, made sure we understood everything, showed us the clubhouse and big screen tv, advised us on dining/drinking spots, gave us his cell phone number and told us to call him at any time. Also, engaging and friendly. The facility was fine, well appointed, and in good repair. Great protected place to wait out a storm.

Great location, friendly staff I am reluctant to give them a good review for fear of no future availability. This place is a hidden gem, walk to a quaint village with great restaurants, Friday night fish fry that's to die for. Now comes the unique part : PIYC has a dock master by the name of Barry who treats guests as if they where members. Barry will do everything he can to accommodate your needs (the best that I have come across in 40 years of boating) and his entire staff have the same values. I have to attribute this to the Commodore because it is not just the Marina, everybody from the restaurant to specifically the House chairman were just fantastic.

Stayed 4 nights. Yacht Club was very accommodating. We even attended their Friday night fish fry. Town has a bus that will take you to Stop and Shop for a buck. Transiting the canal is a nightmare so time slack if you can.

Awesome stay at Point Independence Yacht Club. We stayed July 5-7, 2019. Our second time there and will definitely go back again. The members were friendly and they were having their 4th of July gathering the Saturday we were there and invited us to join. The beach is right at the end of the dock so it is awesome for small kids.The marina is clean and has restrooms, showers and laundry. There is also a fuel dock and a pump out boat available. Barry the marina manager and his staff were wonderful and very accommodating.There is a nice clean grill area that is overhead protected. A short walk uptown will bring you to several restaurants. My favorite is Mark Anthony's for pizza. They have lots of other menu items as well including seafood but I discovered they have the best chicken salad I've ever had! Made in house and not loaded with mayo. It was yum. This is a protected place to stay if you are boating through the Cape Cod canal in your travels. We will definitely be back again.

This is our third stop at the Point Independence Yacht Club, and there is a reason: Friendly, competent folks that work there along with better fuels prices than their neighbor. Easy dock to get in and out of. Two washers and two dryers with a folding table make doing laundry go faster. A perfect place to catch your breathe before going through the Cape Cod Canal or right after you have come through.

All we did was grab a mooring. The only interaction with staff was via VHF to report the mooring number. We were directed to pay via Dockwa. PIYC no longer offers launch service so we did not go ashore, did not use any PIYC facilities. It turns out that there is an Onset Town launch that would have provided service but PIYC did not tell us. No pick-up stick, single pennant, pennant messy. The best we can say is that the mooring held.

Great help at the fuel dock. The person there led me to our slip even thougb, at 4 pm, there was noone around in the office. We got the gate code from our slip neighbor just before he left for the day, otherise we woukd have been stuck without a way onto our dock when we left to YC to go to dinner. But we love PIYC and Onset and have been coming every year for more than 25 years.

The location just off the Cape Cod canal is a perfect for trips to Provincetown, the Elizabethan Islands or the Vineyard. The area provides top self fishing. The harbor is very well protected. And there are numerous dock and dine options within a 15-20 minute boat ride. There are also launch services that will pick you up at the club and bring you to area restaurants.

Very nice place. Safe Harbor and heavy moorings. The only thing I would recommend is that they check the pennants on their moorings. Lines appeared old and frayed. We used a dock line for extra protection while the winds were up.

We had a great visit. Plenty of moorings. Well protected and 10 to 12 foot depths. Shep at the dock was very helpful and a big SHOUT OUT to Ryan who ran us back and forth from our boat to the dock as it was to o windy to drop our tender. Thanks Ryan!!
