The Club should operate on a fiscally responsible basis. The Club shall respect its employees and endeavor to be a "good place to work."
The members of the Naples Yacht Club have the highest level of respect for each other and share exceptional camaraderie and social interaction. The Club has also always been fortunate to have the support of dedicated members, willing to volunteer time and expertise to ensure the Club's continued success. Members are encouraged to become involved by joining a committee or serving in a leadership role. Sustaining our history of being one of the nation's premier yacht clubs is a team effort!
Since its inception, Naples Yacht Club's primary purpose has been to serve as a venue for those seeking adventure, recreation and enjoyment on the water.
The Naples Yacht Club is proud to offer the Women on Water (WOW) Program, which hosts both outings and instructional classes to all Lady Boaters. The Club also offers Boaters' Safety Seminars and Workshops throughout the season for all boaters.
Let Us Entertain You
Even the most avid yachtsman must come ashore once in a while, and the Naples Yacht Club is specifically designed for socializing with fellow members, enjoying a cocktail at sunset, having a casual meal or an elegant dinner.

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.
Membership has grown from three founding yachtsmen to over 500,
and the original spirit of camaraderie and goodwill are stronger than ever.
