Beverly Yacht Club

The Beverly Yacht Club is one of oldest and most distinguished yacht clubs in America. It was founded in 1872 in Beverly Massachusetts by a group of sailors from the Eastern Yacht Club who wanted to race small boats under 30 feet on the waterline. Our founding member and first commodore was Edward (Ned) Burgess. Ned is best known as the designer of three successful America's cup defenders Puritan, Mayflower, and Volunteer in the late 1800's. Ned was an active racer, started the "wet pants league" of small boat racing, and with it a long history of excellence and sportsmanship at our club.

In 1895 the Beverly Yacht Club moved to Pocasset, and in 1913 to Marion where it remains today, name unchanged.

A boat arriving in Marion by water should contact the Beverly Yacht Club (BYC) launch on Channel 68 when approaching Ram Island. Please identify your boat name. The BYC launch will assign a mooring at that time. In addition to BYC moorings, we will have an inventory of available town and private moorings. See Marion Harbor Chart #13230.

For your convenience the Beverly Yacht Club launch (channel 68) will operate on a schedule appropriate for the Regatta.
