11 Most Exclusive Yacht Clubs in America

Page 1 of 12

If you’re looking for a place to dock that new yacht of yours, you can’t go wrong with any of the 11 most exclusive yacht clubs in America.

Owning a yacht is the ultimate show of wealth. But getting one is just a first step on claiming your spot among the world’s elite. Some would argue that a membership in the right, preferably highly exclusive, yacht club is just as important as the actual ownership of a boat. Belonging to one of the most exclusive private clubs in America is well and fine, but a yachting club is a completely different matter.  Just ask Roman Abramovich. Apparently, owning one of the most expensive private jets in the world as well as the most expensive yacht isn’t enough to secure him a place among the British elite, who still snubs him regularly (but not his money, which they welcome.) Unfortunately for poor Russian tycoons, British yacht clubs are the epitome of exclusiveness. For instance, the most prestigious yacht club in the world, Royal Yacht Squadron, didn’t accept women until 2013. Some would say that this is the exactly the type of misogyny we have seen before, but gentlemen of the  RYS took it one step further by not accepting the Queen as a member, despite the fact that Her Majesty is the patron of the club, supplying them with the Royal adjective in their name.

To further distinguish them, we added points for winners of the America Cup, one of the most prestigious yachting races in the world, and Resolute Cup, sometimes called the unofficial club championship of America in yachting. Here are the results.
