New Bedford Yacht Club welcomes Yacht Club fleets, but requires a letter from your Cruise Captain prior to 30 days of the planned visit indicating the date, approximate number of boats and any special requests. Upon approval by our Board of Directors, you will receive written confirmation of approval and our General Manager will contact you.
We extend to Skipper and Crew a cordial welcome to Padanaram Harbor and the facilities of the New Bedford Yacht Club. Reservations are to be made by the Cruise Captain for all boats. Individual reservations are not accepted. Please have each yacht register at the Club office their first trip ashore to obtain a guest card. A Club Use Fee of $55.00 per boat per night must be paid by one check or one credit card for all boats in your cruise upon arrival to shore. Slip rental fees are $3.25 per foot per night when available. If you wish to host a dinner under the NBYC tent, please contact the Club Manager for pricing. Price will include bar set up, and set up of tables and chairs. These fees may be billed to your yacht club or payable upon arrival at New Bedford Yacht Club by a check or a credit card (Discover, MasterCard or Visa). A maximum stay of three (3) days is allowed unless pre-arranged by the General Manager. New Bedford Yacht Club must be notified of any cancellation of a vessel’s Club Use Fee 24 hours prior to arrival. If a cancellation is not called in 24 hours before arrival, the visiting club will be charged for that vessel’s Club Use Fee.
