The best, most fun, & safest way to boat on these unique upstate waterways is to become part of a boating family by joining one of our 20 clubs.

We are allied with the Hudson River Boat and Yacht Club Association with 3500 members and its 33 clubs along the lower Hudson River.

Hudson River Boat & Yacht Club Association

The Hudson River Boat & Yacht Club Association, Inc. (HRBYCA) was established in April 1975 and incorporated in the State of New York on March 16, 1999, and qualified with the IRS in 2005 as a not-for-profit business league.

It was organized as an advocate for the more than 5,000 boaters of our 33 member clubs and for the purpose of:

  • Encouraging and furthering education relative to boating, navigation and boater safety;
  • Cooperating with all government agencies concerned with the management and regulation of the Hudson River;
