WELCOME TO THE HARTFORD YACHT CLUB.
Come Spend Some Time With Us
The Hartford Yacht Club was incorporated on June 26, 1895. The original club location was on the East Hartford side of the Connecticut River in the area of the Founders and Buckley bridges. We are now located on Tryon Street at the Glastonbury/Portland border.
We are a "working club" where all of our members take part in supporting the club by joining work parties to maintain the docks, building and the grounds. We also ask all members to join one of our committees that are in charge of operating various aspects of the club. Finally, we ask that our members attend and enjoy the amazing food, friends and fun at the club's regular social events including our famous clam slam event, spaghetti dinner, Halloween party, Christmas party, and Kentucky Derby party.
CLUB HOUSE & FIRE PIT
The club provides all members with access to a beautiful waterfront clubhouse and grounds on the banks of the Connecticut river. The clubhouse has a full kitchen, bathrooms, large screen TV, WiFi, pool table, foosball and shuffleboard tables, as well as a lounge with TV and fireplace. The club also provides outdoor deck and waterside seating where you will find picnic tables and a wonderful fire pit that serves as a regular gathering place on most warm summer nights. The clubhouse is also available for private member parties for an additional fee.
For those that can trailer their boat, the club maintains an excellent paved launch ramp that can accommodate launching boats as large as 42 feet. There are temporary docks available for tie up while loading and unloading as well as parking for cars and trailers.
The club also has 26 freshwater slips with both power and water available. The slips can accommodate boats as large as 36 feet with a 12 foot beam. Slips are available to members on a first come, first serve basis and are typically in high demand by existing members. On average, new members will typically get the option to rent a slip after 1-3 seasons of membership. Slip costs and membership fees for the season can be found in the HYC Fees PDF Document listed below.
