Visiting Boothbay Harbor

By land or by sea, on the water, the courts, or in the club - come see what we have to offer!

Visiting Yachts & Mooring Rental

Visiting Boothbay Harbor by boat this summer? We have guest moorings available from 1,500 to 3,000 lbs; mooring fees are only $40 per night for vessels up to 60 feet. Coming in a group? We offer a 10% discount for six (or more) visiting vessels. Not a member of a yacht club? No problem. Our guest moorings are open to all! The usage fee entitles visitors to use of the launch service, wi-fi, showers, laundry, tennis, and bar and dining room access. All reservations require a credit card one-night deposit with a 24 hour cancellation policy. We also offer reciprocity to members of other Yacht Clubs to the extent their Clubs offer reciprocity to our members. We're a short taxi ride into town, or a 1.3 mile walk.

Our club stewards provide launch service from the Club's docks as a convenience to members and visitors during the season between the hours of 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM or sunset when that is later.

Water and electricity are available at the dock. Dockside depth is 14 feet at low tide. Checks and credit cards are accepted. Moorings may be reserved in advance for up to a two week stay. Please hail the stewards on VHF Channel 09 or report dockside to the Steward on duty when you arrive.

Call ahead to reserve a mooring for your next visit at 207-633-5750, or hail us on VHF 09 when you arrive in the Harbor.
