Founded in 1909, the Branford Yacht Club is located near the mouth of the Branford River. The marina consists of five docks and twenty-three river stakes that can accommodate yachts as large as sixty feet. The club offers membership to those residents of New Haven County at least twenty-one years of age.
The beautiful buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained by both the members and the staff of the Branford Yacht Club. In addition to expertly maintaining the facilities, our staff also tends to the gas dock.
Whether you are a member or a guest of the Branford Yacht Club, we hope you enjoy your time with us! Welcome to Branford Yacht Club!
The Branford yacht club manager was very accommodating and helpful. When we came in late after hours, he sent us a nice visual, drawing of exactly where our slip would be for the night. He helped us refuel and get water and ice the next day. it is a very nice quiet, calm location with clean bathrooms, a hot shower, and a good bar. I highly recommend it
Very nice club, good dock crew.

Very nice spot, helpful staff.
Marinas was very nice. Showers and bathrooms are clean, and the surrounding areas are nice with a lot of places to eat. The guys at the dock were great. Very helpful. Would definitely go back again.
Great place-great people! Looking forward to going back one day!
This is a nice facility, used primarily by residents of Branford, CT, but accommodating some transients. Floating docks are in good shape with ample cleats. Electricity & water are available from a pedestal at each slip. All as one would hope. The staff is friendly & helpful beyond all expectations. In our case, special applause for Matt the General Manager and dock-hand Peter. Also there are several waterfront restaurants/bars up the quiet Branfpord River, easily reached by water. We were there during first week of July, and there were lively music and some food trucks over the 4th of July weekend. A great stop in an interesting area along the Connecticut coast.
Very nice facility, beautiful grounds and awesome staff and super friendly residents! Dingy up to the brewery for great beers and vibe!
Great facilities. Pleasant atmosphere. Friendly helpful staff. Clean showers and toilets. Nice deck for cocktails.
Small marina with wonderful GM, Jim, met us at the dock,helped with lines, everything we needed. Only negative is lack of laundry, but great place to spend a night. Very pet friendly as well.
Really enjoyed our stay. Very hospitable and comfortable. Got lots of help getting into our slip/tieing up. Super clean facilities. Great pizza place within walking distance. We will be back!
This was our first visit and we can not be more pleased with this marina. The marina staff understands that marinas are a hospitality business. They went out of their way to make us feel at home there. They had live music and food trucks while we were there but they took measures to make sure social distancing and other covid measures were followed. We will definitely visit again when in the area.
very friendly and responsive staff
Jim was very friendly and accommodating, the bathrooms were spotless, and they were taking appropriate COVID-19 measures. Would gladly pickup a dock again.
Beautiful and friendly YC
Jim the GM of the Club was most attentive and helpful. All Club activities closed due to pandemic, but this was a nice place to stay overnight going out the Sound. Would definitely stay again.
Beautiful location. Manager Jim was very accommodating. Facilities were spotless. Plenty of area to spread out.
Very clean and modern marina with high quality docks that have all kinds of protective rollers and soft bumpers to protect boats while docking. Three people were helping me dock, super nice! Great facilities, easy walk to a grocery store and a restaurant. Highly recommend!
Beautiful marina, nice views and good equipment. Very responsive and welcoming manager. A great stay!
Great spot! Jim and his crew keep the facilities in terrific shape, very helpful from the dock to the clubhouse and beyond. Cleanest showers ever with a/c. Bocce court, Cornhole, lots of outdoor seating, good views of the Sound, no food service, but a bar coming in 2020! Branford was a quick ride away and we enjoyed the Shoreline Trolley museum. Location on north side was convenient and the marina had good breezes and only a little wave action in SW winds.
Great yacht club. We really didn't explore as we were leaving at the crack of dawn. Some confusion initially as what slip but we got everything sorted out.
Everything and everyone was great.
