Welcome to the Bellevue Yacht Club (BYC) - the Pacific Northwest's premier cruising yacht club.

Are you a boat-owner in the Pacific Northwest? Are you looking for friends who share your passion about being on the water and exploring new and interesting destinations on your boat? Are you interested in learning more about boats or do you want to share your knowledge with new boaters?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, then you've come to the right place.

The Bellevue Yacht Club was established in 1990 in Bellevue, Washington by a group of boating enthusiasts who were looking for an opportunity to share their passion of boating with like-minded cruising couples and families. Since then, the club has evolved into a fun and active group that cruises around the Puget Sound throughout the year. 

Although we are based out of the Newport Yacht Basin in Bellevue (just East of Seattle!), you don't have to be from Bellevue to join the club, and in on the fun. Our members are a fun group from all over the Puget Sound that are generous with their knowledge about boats, boating issues, and cruise planning. Whether you are starting cruising, or you have been cruising and want an excuse to use your boat more often, then the Bellevue Yacht Club is for you.  Join us for an upcoming cruise or event to learn more and find out how to become a member.


Who should join the Bellevue Yacht Club? 

  • Active boaters of all levels of experience, ages and family size.
  • Owners of any power boat suitable for cruising the Puget Sound.
  • People interested in making friends who share an interest in boating.
  • New boaters seeking the knowledge and safety of cruising with a group.
  • Boaters wanting to get out on their boat more often.
  • Boaters looking for an informal but very active cruising experience.

Here are what new BYC members are saying:


"My enjoyment and usage of my boat has increased ten-fold since joining BYC"

“We've been using our boat year-round since joining BYC...we love being a part of the club and using our boat so much!"

"As a new boater, cruising with other members has given me confidence and made it easy to go places I might have not have gone to for years!"
