Welcome to Branford Yacht Club!

Gerry Mann

Founded in 1909, the Branford Yacht Club is located near the mouth of the Branford River. The marina consists of five docks and twenty-three river stakes that can accommodate yachts as large as sixty feet. The club offers membership to those residents of New Haven County at least twenty-one years of age.

The beautiful buildings and grounds are meticulously maintained by both the members and the staff of the Branford Yacht Club. In addition to expertly maintaining the facilities, our staff also tends to the gas dock.

Whether you are a member or a guest of the Branford Yacht Club, we hope you enjoy your time with us! Welcome to Branford Yacht Club!
