Following Governor Mills's checklist for operating marinas, we are opening Memorial Day weekend as scheduled. Passengers will be limited to two passengers on the launch at any time, and face masks / coverings required by all. The Executive Order requiring a 14 day quarantine for out-of-state visitors is still in effect. Please be prepared to stay on your boat / refrain from BHYC's launch service if you are observing a two week quarantine period. Our dining room and bar will be open mid-June; other shore-side services (laundry, showers, tennis courts) are available to visiting mariners.
Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club (BHYC) in mid-coast Maine has been celebrating yachting for over 100 years, welcoming boaters who want to experience the fabled Downeast cruising grounds and picturesque Boothbay Harbor.
We have guest moorings available from 1,500 to 3,000 lbs. Mooring fees are only $40 per night for vessels up to 60 feet. Water and electricity are available at the dock. Dockside depth is 14 feet at low tide. We're a short taxi ride into town, or a 1.3-mile walk.
Our club stewards provide launch service from the Club's docks during the season between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM, or sunset when that is later. Note: Early season (Memorial Day through mid-June) and Late season (September) launch hours will be 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Visitors may use the launch service, wi-fi, showers, coin-operated laundry, and tennis courts, and are welcome to enjoy our bar and dining room. Note: due to ongoing restrictions related to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the dining room and bar may be closed or open for take-out dining only, and launch service is limited to two passengers at a time.
BHYC is home to over 300 members and families and is the perfect destination for visiting sailors. With extensive guest moorings and a full-service clubhouse, BHYC hosts both individual yachts and affiliate clubs with ease.
Effective June 26, marinas must collect a Certificate of Compliance form (on paper or electronically) as a prerequisite to reservations from people who are not Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont residents, indicating they have received a negative COVID-19 test result, that they will quarantine in Maine for 14 days, or that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine. Establishments should keep these records for 30 days. Also, the Dining Room and Bar are closed to non members this season.
It a nice quite area, close to Boothbay waterfront but not too close. The yacht club staff are very nice
Excellent - beautiful harbour and great yacht club and harbourmaster!
We love BHYC, a quiet protected location in the harbor. A beautiful YC with good facilities for cruising sailors. Very welcoming, and a restaurant open to transient sailors. Except of coursr during YC events.
Very friendly and convenient! Can get fuel nearby. Easy launch service and nice walk to town.
Responsive dock staff and excellent dinner at club. Quiet part of otherwise busy harbor.
Fret location enjoyed the launch driver Ron! The BHYC provides a nice stop over for transient vessels. Thank you for the hot shower!
Used a mooring and had no issues. The location is very exposed to wave action in the harbor and we rolled quite a bit during our stay. Easy access to town using our tender and a good public dock available in town. Actually one of the best WiFi connections we have had.
BHYC staff very courteous and accommodating. Their chef is excellent! Highly recommend mooring at BHYC!
The facilities are great, the harbormaster was very good, helpful and very responsive. The mooring we had was on the outer edge of the field and we experienced an uncomfortable few hours on each change of tide when the current and swell did not play nicely. There were a couple of larger yachts anchored off using flopper stoppers for that reason. Great area to provision.
Great stay, wonderful service, great club!
Friendliest Club we have ever visited. Great location a little bit away from town. Very easy dinghy ride to shopping and dining.
