THE BRADENTON YACHT CLUB is one of the 13 original founding clubs in the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs and has a reputation of being one of the friendliest clubs in the Council. Our membership is diverse, including boaters of various skill levels, backgrounds, ages and interests. It has grown from 18 charter members in 1946 to about 550 today. Many of our social activities are family oriented and most are casual in nature, although we are dutiful in maintaining our formal traditions as well.
We are located on the scenic Manatee River on six acres of paradise. We invite you to visit us and share in the happy, rewarding memories that we are making here.
