Why Become a Member ?


Sailing, Paddling, Socializing, being part of a community of like minded people.   Why not come and try sailing?   

The Marsden Yacht and Boat Club welcomes new members at any time of the year. Our membership year starts on October 1st and runs through to September 30th of the following year.

Membership fees are adjusted for new members joining after January 31st.

Ownership of a boat is not a requirement for membership. The club owns a small variety of yachts for club member’s supervised use and learn to sail programmes.

Our club membership base includes many local residents who enjoy the social interaction with each other and learning what is happening on the water in our seaside community. Regular social events are held throughout the year.

MYBC can benefit all ages, from juniors and adults learning to sail at minimal cost (all safety equipment and boats provided) with Senior/full/family members having the use of sailing dinghys.

Members have the YNZ purchasing discounts.
