Helpful friendly dock crew. Easy mooring access (note that most actual moorings are across the river, but close with quick launch service) and quick fuel and ice too. Will definitely be our go to when visiting Portsmouth.

Very nice stay in PYC’s mooring field in Pepperill cove. It was a little rolly early morning with the fishing boats headed out but other than that not complaints. Great launch drivers and clean facilities. Did not buy fuel but did note pricing for gas and diesel seemed the going rate. Headed to Chauncey Creek for seafood while visiting. Prices seemed high and the quality was a little lower than expected. Gritty muscles and a tourist lobster. The captain from Maine was not impressed. Newark’s seafood was much better!

Spent a lovely evening in Pepperril Cove. Launch took us to PC dock for a very nice dinner at Frisbees.

I had to modify my reservation a couple of times and Portsmouth Yacht Club responded quickly and were able to accommodate me. In addition launch service worked well.

Very friendly staff and appreciated the prompt launch service. Location is great if you've got bikes to head into downtown Portsmouth. However, the location of the moorings are right next to a busy channel and the current is fierce. It made for some uncomfortable rolls and challenging on/off the boat launch.

Place is great. Helpful fuel dock, easy to approach with 36’ sailboat. Great clubhouse, clean showers. Mooring we stayed at was on the Kittery side, nice restaurants harborside. Hefty mooring ball, surrounded by some beautiful boats. Would chose PYC again in a heartbeat. Sidenote: current rips here and the channel is wide to cross in a dingy without an engine.

Great location for transit from Maine to MA or vice versa. Friendly small club. Recommend larger showers. Launch drivers and guest host were great!!

Stayed in Pepperel cove. Easy in and out off the morning.

Mooring field in Pepperell Cove is subject to the wakes of a lot of river traffic, and the prevailing SW wind and waves. A lot of rocking and rolling...

Excellent! Great facility. Kyle, at the dock, was super friendly and helpful. Thank you for the stay!

It was a bumpy night with a southerly wind. Once you get a confirmation of a reservation YOU need to call for your mooring assignment

The launch drivers were very friendly and professional. We got in late and wanted to go to dinner, one driver stayed on for and extra 30-minutes for us to get back. Great facility, friendly members. Sorry I forgot the HYC burgee for exchange

Nice facilities, showers, free WIFI, The only diesel and Gas in Portsmouth Harbor, transient moorings (although no transient dockage) with launch service.

About Portsmouth Yacht Club

Located on the Piscataqua River, Portsmouth Yacht Club was founded in 1898 in Portsmouth, NH, and moved to its present location in New Castle, NH, in 1938. Our facilities include a full kitchen, outdoor grills and refreshing showers as well as fuel for your vessel. The fuel dock is open 7 days a week in season and is available to all boaters. Our club members and staff will provide a welcoming atmosphere for visiting yachtsmen.

Transient moorings, located in front of the club as well as in Pepperrell Cove in Kittery, ME, are serviced by our launches that will bring you to the club or the Pepperrell Cove docks.

Although the clubhouse is open seasonally, the membership is active year round. Our annual activities include club races and cruises, many social functions, weekly dinners in summer, as well as family events, all of which are always well attended.

As Commodore of Portsmouth Yacht Club it is my pleasure to extend an invitation to passing yachtsmen to visit our club and enjoy our hospitality.
