 General Information

An active membership in good standing is entitled to full use and enjoyment of all the Club facilities including the clubhouse, marina and pool. Members can attend social events and meetings, vote on budgets and other important matters, and become eligible to hold Club office. Club members who own property in Yacht Haven Estates also have additional rights to vote on certain matters that might affect the character or size of the Club.

Member obligations include annual dues, slip fees for boat owners, and an obligation to volunteer to help operate the Club. New members pay a modest initiation fee when invited to join.

MVYC includes up to 230 family memberships. Most of the time there is no waiting list; new members can join immediately upon approval.

                                                      The Application Process

Once you have decided to apply, simply complete, sign and date the application form. You must have two active members of Mount Vernon Yacht Club endorse your application in the designated spaces.

Your application will be posted on the Club bulletin board for thirty (30) days for membership input. During the thirty day posting or shortly thereafter, you will be asked to meet with the Membership Committee. A brief biographical sketch is vital for the Membership Committee to make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees. Please include your reasons for seeking membership in MVYC.

We encourage you attend at least one Club event prior to applying for membership (e.g. a TGIF Pot Luck or other Club sponsored activity), and feel free to contact the Membership Chair for a guided tour or more information about our Club.
