welcome to manhattan Yacht club

Manhattan Yacht Club has a fleet of more than 30 club-owned J/24 sailboats which our members sail in New York Harbor.  Our main fleet is docked at Dennis Conner's North Cove, in front of the World Financial Center in Battery Park City, Lower Manhattan.  We also have two magnificent clubhouses, Arabella and the Honorable William Wall.


Founded in 1987, the Manhattan Yacht Club reintroduced recreational sailing to the harbor after a 60 year absence.  Today, our club has 900 members who participate in our many racing and cruising programs.


What makes Manhattan Yacht Club special is our members.  We are an active and enthusiastic group who share a common passion-- sailing!  Our members are of all ages and come from all walks of life. Our club is inclusive and we encourage more people to learn to sail.  Every year, more and more sailors discover the beauty of New York Harbor and become part of our sailing community.  Join us today!
