Info for Visitors

Visiting FYC

The members of the Ford Yacht Club are proud of our club’s beautiful facilities located at the picturesque gateway to Lake Erie. We are especially proud of the reputation we have developed as having a friendly and cordial membership. We welcome visitors from affiliated clubs.

Our clubhouse and marina are maintained by both the members and our professional staff. Please help us keep it beautiful and well-managed by adhering to the clubhouse and marina rules.

If you are visiting for dinner during the non-boating season (Labor Day to Memorial Day), we suggest that you check the Calendar to be sure the Dining Room is open. We always have a limited menu selection in the Bar area when the Dining Room is closed for a special event.

Thank you for your cooperation.
