Welcome to the Capital Yacht Club

Welcome to the Capital Yacht Club, located in the heart of our nation's capital. We have a rich tradition of boating with monumental views and warm hospitality in an exclusive, relaxed atmosphere. Come join us as a member or visiting boater and get to know this unique community on DC’s southwest waterfront.

RELOCATION NEWS: We are open for business during construction of The Wharf! The CYC Clubhouse has temporarily relocated to 660 Water Street, SW, Washington, DC 20024 (formerly the Channel Inn). All Clubhouse and new dock facilities will be fully operational during construction until our final move to a new clubhouse at One Yacht Club Plaza in 2016/17.
