Reviews for Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club
Friendly Steward, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Niantic, CT (564)

Well maintained moorings in the outer section of the club mooring field. Was hoping to visit the restaurant based on prior reviews however there was no availability due to a Past-Commodores dinner event. The hostess told us that they had another new head chef as the previous one(mentioned in prior reviews) had moved to the nearby country club. Facilities were clean as expected with a larger yacht club. Wifi was not working to provide internet access. The staff stated that they were waiting for an I.T. guy to come by to fix it. Quiet overnight, being across the harbor from all the activity.

This is a very friendly, active sailing yacht club. They apparently have ample guest moorings and are anxious to offer them to visiting cruisers. Mooring rental is reasonable and includes launch service and most importantly dining room privileges. The club is fortunate that for the past two years they have had an outstanding (!) chef who offers wonderful locally sourced high end cuisine. I am not a member but have been a dining guest often and have rented a mooring. You will be very happy at BHYC for an evening. One word of caution on a windy evening the SW swell may roll around The point and roll you a bit but in normally summer weather it is very tranquil in the anchorage.

The moorings at the yacht club are secure and inspected every year, offered at what seems to be the going rate in the area. While a long dinghy ride from the tourist happenings in Boothbay, the waters are calmer and the surrounding peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful, the grounds well-kept, and the restaurant bar up-scale. The members seem a bit aloof, but that is not the major reason we selected this spot for a visit to Boothbay.

A venerable, well run, active sailing club. Very friendly to other visiting yacht club members (and transients). They have a restaraunt and nice bar facilities, launch service, and transient moorings for vessels under 55' LOA. Larger boats can anchor off their mooring field. Their locker room showers and heads were clean and comfortable. It's a 20 minute dinghy ride to town which is on the other side of the harbor (there was no road or water Taxi service to or from town). Because it's away from town it affords a quiet place to hang out and enjoy the beauty of the area.
