Macatawa Bay Yacht Club has been a special, magical place for its members, family, and friends since 1899. Our mission is to promote camaraderie and enrich shared experiences through nautical activities, social events, and education. We cherish our reputation as a warm, outgoing, multi-generational family club that welcomes diversity among members of high character, believing these are valuable dimensions of the fellowship we share.

Our club takes pride in building upon its sailing and competitive racing heritage while broadening its appeal to a wider spectrum of members by enthusiastically promoting our power squadron, swimming, and other aquatic programs. We want our Club facility, pool, and grounds to be a relaxing nautical sporting environment which accommodates all age groups with ease to facilitate maximum member and family interaction. We provide casual food and beverage service with flexibility to accommodate more formal occasions and special member events. Simplicity and consistency are emphasized to assure high quality food and service at reasonable prices.

The simple essence of MBYC is members enjoying their families and friends through their common love of boating and water-related activities.
