Founded in 1877, the New Bedford Yacht Club was incorporated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on January 25, 1878 “for the purpose of encouraging athletic exercises, yachting and especially by maintaining a Club house”.
New Bedford Yacht Club is located in beautiful Padanaram Harbor, We're a very short walk to the vibrant and welcoming village of Padanaram, with renowned restaurants, a well-stocked village market, farmers market bazaars, and quaint shopping. Come see why sailors love to hide out here! :-) Voted best harbor in the United States 2019, runner up 2020 and 2021 usharbors.com
Our club amenities include complimentary launch service from the hours of 8 am to 10 pm, Fuel Dock 8 am to 6 pm, showering facilities, dining room, and bar/deck activities.
NBYC is now offering take out dining delivery to your vessel
The goal at New Bedford Yacht Club is to keep members and visiting mariners safe and healthy through these uncertain times. Our staff has been trained to take extra measures including increased vigilance and frequency in sanitizing and cleaning.
Beautiful spot, top notch service. Launch met me and directed me to my mooring.
Very nice friendly place. Pretty little town.
Sept 21, 2022 we stayed in a slip this time and enjoyed that. It’s nice to easily walk to the club and town. Excellent showers and helpful, friendly staff. Thank you. 2020 Each year for at least 5 years, we visit NBYC. Always pleasant. Lovely facility, excellent launch drivers as we typically are on a mooring. Also great home made ice cream near the bridge. See you next year.
There was a north swell which is rare for buzzards bay. The NBYC assigned us a mooring out by the breakwater so it was rolls. We asked for a mooring closer in and we’re told nothing was available. We asked for a slip and we’re told none available. So we waited for the bridge to open and went up into the pond. The hbr master told us no anchoring but had three moorings available at no charge. We wasted $70 on a NBYC mooring. Not going back
Very friendly, helpful and professional crew. Beautiful club. Welcoming club members. Will definitely be back.
Lovely spot, very nice people and a great specialty market and wine store two blocks away!
Transient for one night. Staff treated us like members. Mark was fantastic.
Friendly staff that understands service and the needs of sailors. Always a pleasure to stay here.
Staff and club all great and thanks to the launch driver who pointed out the local ice cream place but we had a miserable night on an outer mooring. With the strong south & southerwesterly the motion was really uncomfortable. Would not go back in other than settled conditions.
Beautiful harbor and Yacht Club. Staff very friendly and helpful. Town is small with a few restaurants but good.
Great harbor. The fuel dock staff and launch service staff were great. Unfortunately the club was closed so we didn’t get to experience anything NBYC has to offer.
Wonderful mooring location. Felt safe and very welcomed on launch and ashore
Great harbor, NBYC very attentive with excellent launch service.
Outstanding club, world class accommodations, great and courteous staff, Mark goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is top notch! Throughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely be back and most certainly time to explore membership. Great work NBYC!
Good stay and great launch service. Only complaint is the mooring we are on was way in the outer harbor and being open to the East it was a tad rough.
Pleasant, for sure. Over.
Nice historic facility, great village.
Nice little harbor. I don’t think I’ll be back for an overnight. Extremely bouncy night. Really not much to do except pursue some basket shops. No beach. NBYC closed for Labor Day Sunday?
The staff was very helpful and welcoming. It turned out we had chosen to stop in the harbor when not only was the Club's restaurant closed but most restaurants in town were as well. Our bad luck, no one's fault. However, we were placed on a very distant mooring at the harbor's entrance and when the swells started rolling in, we decided to drop the mooring and head to a more comfortable stay elsewhere.
We arrived just after sunset and were thrilled that the launch greeted us and escorted us to our mooring. There was not a pick-up stick, but no problem threading the bow line through the eye on top of the mooring ball. We also filled our diesel tanks at their fuel dock in the morning. Plenty of room, great protection on the pilings and pleasant staff.
Beautiful harbor and club. Friendly and helpful staff!
Great staff and dining room. Visit every year we can
Great launch boat and great gas dock and facilities
Great help in securing mooring both on line and when we arrived. Hugely efficient and friendly gas dock. We will be back
Greeted by a very knowledgeable launch driver with 21 years experience at NBYC. He informed us of all the amenities (numerous) and recommended several places for dinner but the yacht club was our choice and happily so. Padanaram is a lovely stop for an overnight and to stretch the legs around the village.
Good service with a smile
Stopped for the night en route to Mass from RI with our new to us 42 foot boat. Mark was amazing. He changed our mooring the day of to offer us better protection and came out on his motor boat to help us with the actual hookup. Highly recommendable location and very easy approach.
The New Bedford YC provided a great visit to our yacht club cruising group. Safe, outdoor dining, and even meals delivered to your boat via launch, if preferred. A favorite harbor, as always
Dining room and staff isn’t being aware and following the governments laws for covid protocol. Staff isn’t washing hands, bartenders using phones, computers, etc and serving drinks food to patrons. Not taking countability in guests safety for out of state travelers. Kitchen staff not masked while prepping/cooking.
Everyone was great, nice protected harbor. Stores and sailing shops close - 1 or 2 restaurants still open Tender comes out and shows you location
Very friendly and helpful staff. Facilities were clean and well stocked. Quaint New England surroundings. Authentic bells and cannon fire at sunset and flag raising. Would definitely stay there again but careful of the swell with strong SE winds.
Showed us to our mooring. Launch service was quick and reliable.
