Great service with friendly dockhands Who were accessible by radio and ready to receive us and guide us into our slip. Much appreciated. Thank you, Chase and Melina!

The only thing that was missing was instructions how to get in and out of the club . There is an electronic gate . They were accommodating in letting us in and out but we didn’t know how to handle . Perhaps transients should be given a card or something to operate the gate .Everything else was great !

Absolutely beautiful facility and grounds - possibly the nicest we've used, and friendly service. We needed fuel first and the dock hand came over to help us dock stern-in, not the easiest thing to do with a 44-ft vessel. Shower was also great, spacious and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful stay at Branford YC. Assistance with dock and supplies. Extremely friendly YC members . Bathrooms and showers 4/5. Club members so helpful.bad weather anticipated. I love to stay at YCs as much as possible for this reason. Highly recommend!

It was a nice quiet place , the people were amazingly friendly !! Two members offered us a ride to town ! Boat neighbors were soo sweet and kind . Dock staff super helpful. Bar was nice. Very laid back but needed place. Needs a future restaurant or food trucks on weekends would be our recommendation .

The Branford yacht club manager was very accommodating and helpful. When we came in late after hours, he sent us a nice visual, drawing of exactly where our slip would be for the night. He helped us refuel and get water and ice the next day. it is a very nice quiet, calm location with clean bathrooms, a hot shower, and a good bar. I highly recommend it

Marinas was very nice. Showers and bathrooms are clean, and the surrounding areas are nice with a lot of places to eat. The guys at the dock were great. Very helpful. Would definitely go back again.

Great place-great people! Looking forward to going back one day!

This is a nice facility, used primarily by residents of Branford, CT, but accommodating some transients. Floating docks are in good shape with ample cleats. Electricity & water are available from a pedestal at each slip. All as one would hope. The staff is friendly & helpful beyond all expectations. In our case, special applause for Matt the General Manager and dock-hand Peter. Also there are several waterfront restaurants/bars up the quiet Branfpord River, easily reached by water. We were there during first week of July, and there were lively music and some food trucks over the 4th of July weekend. A great stop in an interesting area along the Connecticut coast.
