Indian Harbor Yacht Club
The Indian Harbor Yacht Club is rich in yachting tradition. The Club, with its breathtaking views of Long Island Sound and proximity to Newport and New York, is widely recognized as one of the premier yachting establishments on the East Coast. Critical to the Club’s success is that first and foremost, it is a boating club. While the Club certainly sponsors plenty of activities that are not water-related and offers among the finest waterfront dining in the area, the Club's priority is yachting in all its forms.
Indian Harbor has almost 500 year-round members. The rest fall into two seasonal memberships - Summer and Clubhouse (winter). The vast majority of the year-round membership own boats or are active boaters. Individuals choose Indian Harbor because of this. The club does not have tennis or swimming facilities to dilute focus from on the water.
The current Indian Harbor clubhouse was built in 1921 of Mediterranean style. Upon completion, the editors of The Rudder proclaimed the building to be "the most up-to-date and artistic yacht club on the Coast". In 2010 the Club was added to the National Registry of Historical Places.
Hours of Operation
The clubhouse and offices are open Tuesday through Sunday year-round except for three weeks in January when the Club closes for annual maintenance. Launch operations are available 24 hours, seven days a week during the commissioned season.
