Vintage Yacht Club

Take a Step Back in Time
A Unique Vintage Yachting Experience

When you are ready to escape the concrete jungle, or simply want to experience what represented the 'good life' for a select few in the past, we have an opportunity for you.

We've curated an inventory of select personal motoryachts and runabouts from the 30's, 40's, and 50's, and deployed them up and down the west coast in unique venues which are known for their natural beauty, weather and amenties.

There are two ways you enjoy an experience with Vintage Yacht Club. First you can book an experience in one of our local venues (Napa, San Francisco Bay, and Lake Tahoe), where we have partnered with a local boutique hotel or winery.

Secondly, if you are a real aficianado of classic boating, you can become a member of Vintage Yacht Club with an initiation fee, and receive tokens which can be redeemed for any yacht and any VYC venue.

So, close your eyes and imagine making your own vintage yacht memory by cruising with us, spending a night aboard, or reserving exclusive time aboard your favorite vessel throughout the year.
