The mission of Vero Beach Yacht Club is to provide a vibrant social environment, an excellent waterfront dining experience, outstanding entertainment, and fun-filled activities, both on and off the water, to enrich the lives of our members and create lasting friendships.
We fulfill our mission by providing:
Nestled under ancient moss-covered oaks adjacent to Vero Beach City Marina, and directly on the Indian River Lagoon, the Vero Beach Yacht Club is the quintessential social gathering place for boaters and non-boaters alike. Established as a private club in 1926, members enjoy a wide variety of social activities plus multiple dining options ranging from a quick snack at the bar to gourmet dinners served with candlelight and live entertainment.
The club is a friendly place to have fun and enjoy life in beautiful Vero Beach. Whether it is sunset cruises, dancing to live bands, interesting guest speakers or lively conversation over bridge and dinner, the Club offers something for everyone.
Boat Club Island (IR25), a part of the club's past, was formed from the dredging of the ICW during the early 1950s. It is a state-owned, active recreation island, located to the west of the mile market #120, just a little north of the entrance to Grand Harbor. There are docks on the south-west side of the island.
In July 2016, after reading an article about the trash on the spoil islands, and due to our history of participating in community projects, the club adopted this island as an outreach project. Our agreement is to clean the island a minimum of four times a year. We also present written reports of the cleaning events to the Indian River Lagoon Aquatic Preserves Agency and the Friends of Spoil Island.
Club members also volunteered to clear the island of invasive trees/plants in order to create safe, accessible paths and areas on the island so that club members and the public can use the island for club events and member outings. They are doing an amazing job.
