Reviews for Ford Yacht Club
Friendly Club, 2015-08-04
Captain: , Hilton Head, SC (950)

Club members made us felt welcome as visitors. There is some shoaling on the western entrance, favor the south side of the channel.
The guest dock had 6'6" depth - I sounded it w/a line to double check. Good food, generous portions, good prices. Would go back.



Ford Yacht Club, 2012-06-29
Captain: , Michigan City (349)

Well protected and quiet marina. Staff was very helpful and friendly and the facillities were clean and well maintained. Good stopping point before going out into Lake Erie or up the channel. Yacht club was closed when we were there but they allowed us to stay on the guest dock at no charge with reciprocity.

The entrance is a little shallow. We were churning mud with a 5'7" draft and had to push through to get to the deeper channel. Seaweed also fouled the prop and rudder but was easily dislodged by reversing a few times.



classy restaurant, 2012-02-19
Captain: , Racine WI (550)

Great food - decent price - table service - table cloths - be careful you are docking beside some expensive boats



Beautiful, Scenic, Quiet, 2009-07-02
Captain: , Catawba Island, Ohio (610)

If you want to get away from it all, Ford Yacht Club is a great place to do that. It is very quiet and peaceful at this private club. They do offer reciprocal priveleges with ILYA clubs. The club house is very nice and the bathrooms were kept very clean. They have a wonderful patio that looks out over the lake. The restaurant at the club is only open on the weekends. There is not much near the club. There is a "town" that is about 3-4 miles away. So you will need bike or other transportation to get there. Lots of green space and a nice quiet setting at this port of call.
