Membership has grown from three founding yachtsmen to over 530, and the original spirit of camaraderie and goodwill are stronger than ever.

Naples Yacht Club is a founding member of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs (FCYC).
One of the principal objectives of the Council is to promote reciprocity among the member clubs. To encourage reciprocity, Council clubs permit the first 24 hours free use of a boat slip to members of the other Council Clubs. We ask visiting Council Club members to please make reservations ahead of time.
