Reviews for Eastern Point Yacht Club
Transient time, 2016-09-19
Captain: , eastham ma (10)

A wonderful stopping point on our coastal cruising -- we picked up a mooring going in both directions easily and the shoreside facilities are top notch. Launch crew are most helpful and accommodating

Easy in and out , 2016-09-15
Captain: , Hull, MA (10)

This marina was great to deal with - easy in, right around the jetty, moorings were obvious and all had pick-ups attached -no hassle. We took our dinghy in to the main harbor for lunch (about a 10min ride). The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the area is exposed - we were clocking 30mph winds at night and got bumped around a lot. On a rough night like that, I would consider going further into the harbor for a better sleep -that said, the mooring held strong and service from the yacht club was not the issue- just location.

Very good service and friendly staff

Wonderful for a stop over, 2016-09-03
Captain: , Marion (10)

The moorings are easy to access and not much out of the way when sailing Maine to Provincetown or further south. The staff was friendly and the dinner was outstanding. There are early moring wakes from work boats leaving, but I have found Ptown to be worse. The club is impecably maintained and a wonderful setting with full views of sunset and schooners sailing by.

Good Stopping Point, 2016-08-15
Captain: , Georgetown, Md (10)

When heading east this is a convenient place to spend the night before going offshore to points towards Maine or Nova Scotia. Staff is very friendly and they have free ice! Moorings are limited so best to make reservations well ahead of schedule.

Worst night on a mooring, 2016-07-31
Captain: , Beverly, MA (10)

A beautiful view, wonderful restaurant and friendly staff is offset by one of the worst nights I have had on a mooring. The boat traffic in and out of Gloucester produces waves that start rolling the boat before the sun comes up. Impossible to sleep aboard. All transient boats are assigned on the outer area of the mooring field exposed to the worst wave action from other boats. I love the yacht club but will not stay on my boat overnight in that mooring field again.

Loved Eastern Point Yacht Club, 2016-07-28
Captain: , Boston (10)

We stopped at EPYC on our way to Rockport. They could not have been nicer! Beautiful grounds, very friendly staff and guests. Sunday night was a buffet on the lawn so we avoided a long taxi ride to town and joined in. No regrets.

Good for an overnight stop during coastal runs., 2016-07-28
Captain: , Bristol, RI (55)

Good location, easy access. Stopped here enroute to ME from P'town. Launch service, helpful staff. Too far from Gloucester to do any shopping.

Nice but isolated, 2012-11-12
Captain: , Boston (104)

Rolly anchorage and far from town but friendly staff and nice facilities. Expensive for VY's. Reciprocal agreement required.

Great stop in Gloucester Harbor, 2010-05-22
Captain: , South Portland (10)

Very nice yacht club with friendly staff and a beautiful setting. The swimming pool was a big hit with our kids and the snack bar was great. Our mooring was pretty far out from the dock and boy was it a rolly night! The club is too far from town to walk and cabs are hard to come by so plan accordingly.

Eastern Point YC, 2009-06-01
Captain: , Fredericton, NB, CAN (477)

Located just inside the harbour behind the breakwater, the Eastern Point Yacht Club is a beautiful classic yacht club. The grounds and facilities are beautiful.

The club house is huge and has lovely facilities. Large hot showers, big locker rooms and a full restaurant and bar. Free coffee and wifi in the club house.

$35 for a mooring (May 30, 09 with reciprocal agreement).

Word of caution - if the wind is hard out of the west - you might be in for a bouncy night. We were glad for a mooring as we had been dodging thunder storms the last two hours coming from the Cape Cod canal. It took us six tries to pick up the mooring. The wind was howling and blowing the pick up stick flat against the water.

Also - the morning working boats leaving the harbour will probably wake you aw well.

But - we were so tired we slept pretty good.
