Membership to the Watkins Glen Yacht Club

Imagine enjoying the benefits of one of the most beautiful Yacht Clubs in the Finger Lakes. An impressive clubhouse, immaculate bath house and variety of docks for sale or lease. After paying a one time initiation fee, your annual dues allow full privileges.

All docks have electric, water, pump out, cable TV and WiFi. If you lease a dock, the annual lease and dues are comparable to rent alone at marinas in the Finger Lakes. If you purchase a dock, your annual dock assessment will be based on the length of the dock.

Become a Member

Membership in the Watkins Glen Yacht Club (WGYC) is extended to those persons interested in boating and the fellowship of other boaters. Membership in WGYC is a privilege and members are encouraged to continue the long history of one of the finest Yacht Clubs in the Finger Lakes region. As the club is far more than a marina, those approved for membership often participate in both work and social activities of the club.

After a tour of the club’s facilities by the Membership Chairman [or a designated representative], a prospective member will be given a membership application. Upon acceptance, the member will be required to pay the current fees.
One Time Membership fee – $2,000
Annual Fees – (2019)
Dues – $395
Dock fee (based on length of dock) $30.56/ft

Capital Fund Assessment  $150/member
Note – members who have a slip in the boathouse pay an additional assessment of $700.75.
