About Us

Since its establishment in 1946, the success of the Bradenton Yacht Club is a direct result of the dedication and caring of our Members and Founding Fathers. We are truly one of the friendliest clubs you will visit, and our volunteer members and staff work hard every day, so we can enjoy our very special place. Our objectives remain strong; we are a club that promotes boating safety and social activities for the enjoyment of boaters, and the preservation of the waters of Manatee County.

As one of the 13 original founding clubs in the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs the Bradenton Yacht Club  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. The club has grown from 18 charter members in 1946 to about 600 families (1200 members). Many of our social activities are family oriented and most are casual in nature, although we are dutiful in maintaining our formal yachting traditions as well.

BYC is located on Snead Island in Palmetto, FL. Our 6-acre campus on the Manatee River includes a marina, pool, tennis, pickleball and boat storage facilities. Our clubhouse and poolside facilities provide fine dining opportunities, plus bar service, 6 days a week --- including lunch and Sunday breakfast.

We invite you to visit us and share in the happy, rewarding memories that we are making at the BYC.
