Manhattan Yacht Club is the premier sailing organization in New York Harbor. The Club has a broad range of facilities and a dynamic community of Members.
Our broad range of facilities begins with the Clubhouse at Liberty Harbor Marina in Jersey City. The Clubhouse is filled with historical photos, trophies and burgees from around the world. There are Member lockers and bathrooms. The Clubhouse is surrounded by a grass lawn and several decks where Members can relax on white rocking chairs. Flying above the clubhouse is our flagpole which was funded by visionary Members in 2016.
The Clubhouse is an enjoyable place to relax and escape from the bustle of city life. After races, teams gather around the BBQs and prepare dinner. On weekends, Members enjoy the cushioned chairs beneath the sun awning and families frequently spend the whole day. The social connections created at the Clubhouse are a valued piece of the richness that is Manhattan Yacht Club.
Manhattan Yacht Club also has two floating Clubhouses anchored in New York Harbor. The original clubhouse is called the Honorable William Wall and it serves as a spectator platform for the sailboat races. It is open from Tuesday through Saturday. Affectionately known as the “Willy Wall,” this clubhouse features an open air bar on the upper deck. This Clubhouse is also open to the public and frequently used for corporate events and office parties. There is a $20 launch fee to reach this clubhouse and MYC Members receive 50% off all drinks onboard, Members also receive first option for tickets to the Willy Wall’s signature event, the Full Moon Party. This is an impressive clubhouse where you can entertain friends, family and co-workers, especially if they are visiting from out of town.
