Welcome to the Emeryville Yacht Club

One of the friendliest clubs on the bay!

Emeryville Yacht Club was founded in 1989 under the name North Star Yacht Club, to promote good fellowship among its members and to yachting in general, promote boating safety and education, and provide its members with boating and social activities. It was renamed Emeryville Yacht club in 1999. 


As members of PICYA, we are are a casual club focused on fun on the water with family and friends.  Because we have no fixed facility to maintain, we are able to keep our annual dues at an affordable level.  While it is true that we are the best value on the bay, partly due to not having the financial overhead of a clubhouse, we've never lacked for fun!  We get creative with our gatherings, thus we've implemented "docktail parties," meeting on members' boats or marina space. 


Emeryville Yacht Club is an active club with 182 individual members who love using our boats!  Visit the Events page for cruise-out and shoreside information, sign up forms, shoreside event calendar, and ways for members to volunteer.

Feel free to contact us at with any questions. We would love to hear from you!
