Welcome to the Palm Beach Yacht Club & Marina
1911 to 2013
Having been originally founded in
1890 and then re-chartered in 1911, the Palm Beach Yacht Club is the oldest
established business in West Palm Beach, Florida. Initially organized for
boat racing and “promoting camaraderie among yachtsmen on the Intracoastal
Waterway", the Club has evolved over the years to become the most active
Private Club in the Palm Beach area. Our Members continually
tell us that we have the finest Restaurant
in the Palm Beaches.
The Yacht Club is the recipient of the Epicurean International Award, limited to 100 restaurants world-wide. We were recently honored with the prestigious "Distinguished GOLD Club of the World Award", enjoying a space with just 160 other Private Clubs internationally.
In addition to the parties, events and dining, an overwhelming number of our Palm Beach Yacht Club members are generous philanthropists. It is a pleasure for our Club to partner with them to raise essential funds for these needy local charities. It is the pleasure of the Yacht Club to continue that fine tradition year after year, with over $150,000 raised annually for local charitable efforts.
We were exceptionally honored by the renowned Chef Thomas Keller, who visited us in November, 2011, to celebrate the Yacht Club's 100th Year Anniversary. Son of our General Manager during the 1970's, Elizabeth Keller, Thomas began his culinary career by washing dishes in the Yacht Club kitchen. But even at an early age - in his teens, he eyed the cook's line and soon convinced his Mom to let him move over to the food side. The rest is history! Click on Chef Keller's picture to see some of the events from that day.
The 'MENU BOARD', above, will lead you to the many areas of the website that you can peruse. We have attempted to include everything about which you may have a question. Membership rates may be discussed directly with our Membership Director, Carey Reed.
