Plymouth Yacht Club is one of America's first yacht clubs; founded back in 1890.  Located in historic Plymouth, MA, I guess you could say that the Mayflower was one our club's first guests!  Since that time, many have enjoyed this sheltered harbor, which, in 1620, became America's first permanent, "non-crown endorsed" English settlement.          

Reserving A Mooring In Plymouth Harbor
Via Plymouth Yacht Club

Reserving A Mooring In Plymouth HarborPlymouth Harbor has been welcoming guests for over 390 years, so it's Plymouth Yacht Club's pleasure to have you stay with us.  As you may expect, there are a few rules and regulations about staying in the harbor, but the club is now happy to extend the option of booking your mooring reservation in advance, online.

To rent a mooring, there is a $50.00 per night fee includes use of the club facilities (Top Side Bar, showers, laundry, launch service, etc.).  Pump-out services are available 24/7 at the Harbor Master pier and boat-side on weekends.  We are able to accommodate yachts up to 45 feet (if your vessel is larger than that, you may want to contact our neighbor, Brewer Plymouth Marine).

If You Have Not Made a Reservation

If you have not made a reservation for a mooring by way of this website, know that mooring will be offered to you on an "as available" basis.  Follow the channel to the inner harbor breakwater and hail the Plymouth Yacht Club on VHF Ch. 8 or call 508-747-0473 to request a mooring. 

While it may be tempting, please refrain from calling ahead while you are still out at sea, Gurnet Point or the end of Long Beach as mooring availability can not be guaranteed until you arrive in the inner harbor.

Making A Mooring Reservation In Advance

Plymouth Harbor is, for many reasons, one of Massachusetts' most popular places to visit, both by land and sea.  In the case of moorings, the number available for use by visitors is very limited compared to other major harbors such as Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Scituate and the like.  As a result, if you are planning a cruise, it is a good idea to reserve your mooring ahead of time.
