Royal Bermuda Yacht Club
Located on a waterside property at Albuoys Point
in Hamilton City, the club was established in 1844 by 30 persons who were all from British Army and Royal Navy, and posted in Bermuda. Initially the club was set up in St. George's and later was moved to Hamilton City. The club has been in its current location since 1933, and has a large club house.
Presently there are about 850 resident and non-resident members in the club. As the name indicates, the club was granted the royal warrant from Queen Elizabeth II and is meant exclusively for select set of members. Membership is mostly by invitation only rather than by application.
This yacht club has berths and provides marina services. The club had spent around $2.5 million in 1998 to add 100 mooring facilities on top of the 25 it already had. As a private yacht or boat owner you can avail the marina services (including berths and other marina facilities) of the club by registering with them. An account will be opened on your name. Vessel size here is restricted to 80-ft maximum.
