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.
The Bradenton Yacht Club offers elegant as well as casual dining in its spacious formal dining room and adjacent burgee room as well as a full bar that overlooks the scenic Manatee River. There are also an additional Members Room and Commodores Room that are perfect for meetings or small parties. The club has a 52-slip basin for members'' boats and a 185' Transient Dock with 30 and 50 amp service for Members and FCYC Visitors along Governors Cut which connects Terra Ceia Bay to the Manatee River.
