About Us

Camaraderie. At the Sarasota Yacht Club, a spirit of friendship and community makes everyone feel welcome. Whether you glide in dockside or step inside the new luxurious clubhouse, you’re greeted with a warm smile and outstretched hand.

A Private Yacht Club on Sarasota Bay

Our varied membership comprised of non-boating singles and families, cruisers and athletes under power or sail, love to call the Club home. While many of our members live in Sarasota year round, many of our mariners are from out of state and still proudly fly the SYC Burgee on their bow. But everyone agrees, no matter how you arrive you always feel at home at the Club.

And at the end of the day, our members can relax and enjoy the gorgeous Sarasota Bay skyline in luxury and style. That’s why our members say “Meet me at the Club!”

Distinguished Elite Club of the World

We are pleased to announce that Sarasota Yacht Club has become the only private club in the Sarasota/Tampa Bay area – and one of only seven yacht, beach and lake clubs in the United States – to be awarded the Distinguished Elite Club of the World award.

The Distinguished Clubs of the World award program is conducted by BoardRoom magazine, one of the most respected trade publications serving private clubs. Clubs are selected for this honor based on a club-specific rating system that reviews the club, its management and its staff, using a proprietary evaluation process that measures each club’s member experience.

To be a Distinguished Elite Club like Sarasota Yacht Club, a club must provide a level of member experience attained by only the finest clubs in the world and earn a 9.0 or greater Distinguished Clubs score.
