Bellevue Yacht Club
Listed in Yacht Clubs
- Bellevue, WA
Founded in 1990, we are one of the premier cruising yacht clubs in the Pacific Northwest. With thirteen cruises a year, we are certainly the most active. Most of our members live in the Seattle area, however this is by no means a prerequisite to join Bellevue Yacht Club.
If you enjoy boating, are new to boating or just want to find out more, please browse visit our web site.
I joined the BYC in January 2022. It’s a great group composed of diverse people from all walks of life. The main interest is cruising and there are cruises every month to some destination within Puget Sound. There’s no social headquarters because that’s not the club’s goal. Also the Small dock in Kingston is for those who moor within Lake Washington, so they can get out before weekends in the summer and bypass the Locks craziness. Nowadays the majority of members moor at either Shilshole or Elliott Bay, so there’s always space in Kingston.
Cruises are very well organized and typically begin Friday evening with a Happy Hour. Then a dinner on Saturday, and sometimes, breakfast on Sunday. It’s a great and inexpensive way for new boaters to get introduced to Puget Sound, and meet a very interesting, unassuming, unpretentious group who get together for the Love of Cruising.
Small group of boaters mostly out of Newport Yachtbasin, they have no clubhouse and just
one outstation at Kingston which consist of a single end tie.
Really fun club that is family-friendly and cruises every month of the year. The Kingston outstation is a perk of the club we enjoy using.
