Reviews for Plymouth Yacht Club
Aqua Bob Cat, 2017-09-13
Captain: , Charleston SC (611)

Great place to grab a mooring (call to reserve to increase chances of picking one up). The staff and everyone was welcoming and food prices were very resonable. Also the location was great as everything is within walking distance (about 400yards to the rock and bars on the water).

PYC Family Oriented, 2017-08-27
Captain: , Havre de Grace, MD (264)

We stayed one night on in their mooring field, and also enjoyed the Friday night cookout. Food and drink prices are great, with $7 for hamburger with all the sides and $4 for mixed drinks. Lots of young families make the club vibrant. Easy walk to Plymouth Rock, which thankfully is a no charge visit.

PYC is great!, 2017-01-09
Captain: , Swifts Neck Wareham, MA (482)

I the summer of 2016 we rented a mooring on two occasions. At the beginning of our vacation heading heading north, and again heading south at the end on our vacation. The staff at PYC was professional and freindly. A launch will meet you and show you to a mooring. We used our own dinghy and docked it at their beautiful facility which is very close to downtown Plymouth. Showers and laundry are clean. Definately coming back.

First Class, 2015-09-02
Captain: , Pittsburgh (80)

We staying on one of their mooring balls. Very nice stay, excellent facility. Bar on site, Plymouth is a very short walk. The areas is quite scenic and life is great sitting on one of their Adirondack chairs looking out at the bay. Launch service is prompt and very friendly.

Convinient Stop, 2015-08-12
Captain: , Yarmouth, ME (180)

The launch driver was pleasent and helpful. We stopped hear on our way from Maine to the Marthas Vineyard. Fun to sail the same waters as the Mayflower.

Great Service, 2014-09-01
Captain: , Marblehead (22)

We had a reservation made in advance. The launch drivers were quite helpful despite it being a very busy holiday weekend.

5 Star Club But Problem with Mooring, 2013-08-31
Captain: , Bridgeport, CT (559)

Moorings are $50; we had excellent launch service to/from the club and the members very friendly. The club deserves a 5 start. Problem we had with stay was that a very large powerboat occupied the mooring next to us (think much larger than 35 ft). As the current changed, we went stern to stern and hit. Wife and I spent the night on an anchor watch to protect our boat.

Good service, long trip in/out, 2013-06-19
Captain: , Boston (331)

The PYC operates a competent mooring & launch service. The moorings are well protected, but that comes at a cost: the trip in/out of the harbor is long, winding and narrow, so give yourself plenty of time.

Moorings for under 40', 2013-06-18
Captain: , Yorktown, VA (972)

We were encouraged about the reviews and tried to make reservations. They can only accomodate under 40' boats and reservations must be made online.

Very good stop, 2012-07-18
Captain: , Pasadena, MD (1496)

We arrived eearly in the day, and requested a mooring ball. There was availability ($45/night, which includes launch). We used the launch, which was very resoponsive. We did not use the cub's facilities. The town is clearly geared for tourists. Plan to do some walking once ashore.

Mooring experience, 2012-07-15
Captain: , Oriental, NC (55)

Ecellent - Connor, J.C., And Connor were excellent. We arrived very late at night and given their relation wiht the Harbor Master, we did not have an unpleasnt experience finding our mooring. This is a challenging channel even during the day at high tide. The marina services are excellent (VHF 10). Harbor Master is excellent. Diesel and water are easy to get. Launch service is excellent. Make reservations on their web site. Inexpensive and delecious cookout some evenings.

Plymouth yacth Club, 2011-08-12
Captain: , Salem Ma (790)

Made a reservation a week prior for a Monday stay. Seemed a little disorganized when I got there, but they seemed to get over it. Lanuches seemed to run a lot and they were running till 10pm. Walk into town is fairly long from the clubhouse. Didn't go in the clubhouse other than use the showers.

Great stop - friendly people, 2011-08-07
Captain: , Byram, CT (708)

Very nice facility, nice low-key club, reliable launch service. Beautiful harbor. The tour boats are a bit noisy and distracting, however.

Great Experience, 2011-07-17
Captain: , Destin, FL (514)

Moorings are $45 per night, but include free launch service (very responsive and accomodating- 8AM to 9:45PM), free showers and access to laundry and club facilities. Best view of the harbor from 3rd floor bar. Wed nights, sailing club moms serve dinner for $7.00 per person (hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken). Club members are proud of the facilities and very welcoming.

Plymouth rocks, 2011-07-17
Captain: , Boston (621)

Just spent a nice Saturday night here on a PYC mooring. $45, I made my reservation a couple days in advance and had a nice spot across from the Mayflower. The launch drivers were quick and polite. The water is shallow here though, probably 7' or so at low tide. I stuck a little on a previous trip on a boat with a 7+ foot draft,, but I think it's just mud. Oh, they said they only have 8 visitor moorings, so plan ahead.

Historic stop, 2011-07-01
Captain: , Solomons, MD (1290)

Mooring ball @ $45,a bit expensive,ok behid breakwater, long winding entrance, but follow the marks carefully, fun to see the "Rock". Hospitable yacht club, good launch service.

Excellent service, 2010-08-03
Captain: , Deltaville (200)

Took a mooring ball ($40), access to laundry, launch service and club house. Very friendly, very helpful. Morrings a little tight together, was not so easy to pick up in the blow we had on the day, but the tender came out to meet us and help out.

Plymouth is a very nice town and easy to get around on foot, there is a convenience store within walking distance (Tedeschis), but the range of items is limited.

FWIW, this is a better option for sailboats than Brewers which is tightly packed and mainly full of sports fishers.

Helpful marina. friendly folks, 2010-03-06
Captain: , Sarasota (1427)

Very good launch service, friendly people at the club. Very good prices on food and drinks. Close to town.

A nice place to stay, 2009-08-25
Captain: , Whitby, ON (794)

Moorings of various sizes (swing radii) in a very tight mooring field. Good launch service and nice, active club. Lots happening in the town but pretty touristy.

Very friendly club, 2009-08-02
Captain: , Newport, RI (10275)

The club is extremely friendly. On weekends they serve food at *very* reasonable rates and the members take advantage of it. There's a great view of the harbor from the 3rd floor bar. Be sure to do the normal tourist things as many are within walking distance. For a great meal try Cafe Strega at 16 Main St.

Oh, I will agree that the moorings are VERY tight. We were on PYC2 and had to shorten their penant with our own lines (we're 40').

Tight Mooring Field, 2008-06-23
Captain: , Cruising (3535)

We tried to get a PYC mooring - they are open to the public and don't require YC reciprocity. Cost is $45/night. Their mooring field is very dense and they said they had room for a 49' boat, but the two moorings they offered us were way too short for us. The launch was very helpful though, guiding us to the mooring - which they do for everyone. They tried, but their field is just too tight. They do not have a dink dock, but their launch service is free for their moorings.

Geat town, 2007-07-24
Captain: , Greenport, NY (437)

We stayed at a mooring for a few days. The tender service was responsive and helpful.
