Brownsville Yacht Club is located at Port of Brownsville - one of the most peaceful and attractive marinas on western Puget Sound. We have a cozy and comfortable clubhouse located right at the marina which is available for private use by members, their family and friends, for general relaxation or just visiting. The clubhouse is also available for private rental as well by members and the public. The club is open to the public for Morning Coffee at 9:00 a.m.


Our Yacht Club organizes cruises for members to go new places and have fun! The cruising year starts in February with Frosty Fest in Poulsbo, in March with St. Patrick’s Day in Bremerton and picks up as the weather warms.

We have many social activities as well, such as participating in Brownsville Appreciation Day, (BAD! may return in 2024), Friday Deck Parties every other week in the summer, Morning Coffee in the Clubhouse, educational events like Pier Peer with local marine biologists, Haunted Harbor Halloween charity fund raiser, and we’re always looking for new ideas.

What is a yacht? A yacht is a sail or power-driven vessel, usually private (not a "working" vessel), that is used for pleasure and is typically designed for overnight or long-distance use. As such, it usually has sleeping space (berths or staterooms), cooking space (a galley), and "necessary" space (heads).  Size alone does not define a yacht!
