Boating & Reciprocity

Vero Beach Yacht Club has 24 boat slips on-site with full power and water. The Club can accommodate boats up to 42'. Currently, there is a waiting list for boats up to 33' and for boats from 33' to 42'.

The Club has a limited number of transient slips available for our members of The Florida Council of Yacht Clubs and Yachting Club of America.

Our Fleet is comprised of over 60 Captains and their vessels, both power, and sail. Yacht Club Captains graciously avail themselves and their vessels to the entire membership throughout the year for a variety of boating activities. These activities include raft-ups, overnight weekend excursions to other yacht clubs, trips to the Bahamas, Sunset Cruises, Poker Runs and assisting with the stewardship of Boat Club Island.

Our Club Boat:  In July 2016, the Club purchased a 20' Pontoon boat, Friendship, which carries 8 to 10 passengers.  It is Coast Guard equipped and available for members, who receive training by experienced Club captains, to rent seven days a week from 9 am to 5 pm.  To date, many members have enjoyed their days on the water aboard Friendship.

Whether you are traveling by land or sea, Vero Beach Yacht Club members enjoy year-round reciprocity with some of the finest yacht clubs in Florida and throughout the United States. We are a proud member of the exclusive Florida Council of Yacht Clubs, an organization with over 30 of the finest yacht clubs in the state. In addition, through our membership in the Yachting Club of America, our members also enjoy reciprocity with over 700 yacht clubs throughout the country.

Florida Council of Yacht Clubs members are always welcome at the Club.  VBYC also has a limited number of slips available for overnight FCYC and YCA guests.

Yachting Club of America Member Clubs ~ Please Note: The VBYC is enjoying a full membership with a substantial waitlist. Therefore, reciprocity is available from May 1st through October 31st. Transient dockage is available year-round pending availability.

When arriving by boat, please call ahead to reserve your slip.  After docking, check-in with the Club office for a welcome kit that contains valuable information about Club amenities, dress code, and area activities.

A Special "Centennial" Blessing of the Fleet 2019, in conjunction with the City of Vero Beach, took place on October 12, 2019 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary!
