A Community Partner
As the oldest private club in Naples, giving back to the community has always been a fundamental philosophy. Recognizing its long-standing place in Naples history, Club members have generously supported many worthwhile causes, including the area's youth.

A copper weather vane sits atop the Dockmaster's Office as a tribute to the 1920's coastal schooner, Ina, that sailed between Key West and Tampa, trading produce and manufactured products. Naples Yacht Club is proud to display the weather vane as the city's first piece of public art under the Public Art Statute.
