We arrived in terrible weather: pouring rain making nonexistent visibility, high winds over 25 kts, and whitecaps. The easiest dock was ready for us, and two people helped secure us to the dock. Electricity worked as soon as we plugged in. In a lull in the downpours, we put on our foul weather gear and trudged to a shop that sold milk and fresh food we hadn’t been able to put on board for our delivery. There was a restaurant nearby as well. The restrooms were clean and empty. The club was closed on Mondays, the day we were there. Convenient, easy to reach, helpful dockage.

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, easy to navigate to the marina and into the slip. A short walk to the quaint Padanaram Village capped off the day. The dock staff was excellent and the fellow yachtsmen in the marina were welcoming and friendly. The marina is first class - clean and well cared for.
A special thanks to the waterfront director, Mark Dorman.

Very good mooring field, excellent launch service and charming club house with good club food
by james m. - Verified user on Jul 29, 2023
While it is very welcoming that the yaght club opens its mooring up to boats passing though. The launch has to bring you to your mooring at the time we came in the conditions were 14 kts and I was asked to drive to nun 8 and stand by . It was difficult as I have a blue water sailboat. The launch came out after 40 minutes and brought us to our mooring which was an odd thing kind of like a bumper with a pendant on it. But I would rádio and call well before I was in the breakwater

The New Bedford Yacht Club was a pleasurable stay in an efficiently run and historic yacht club. So. Dartmouth is lovely. We arrived late and left very early due to weather changes and appreciated the safe harbor availability for the night.

Beautiful spot, top notch service. Launch met me and directed me to my mooring. This an A+ facility. The fuel dock dockhand, Grace, is truly professional and has such a great attitude!

Sept 21, 2022 we stayed in a slip this time and enjoyed that. It’s nice to easily walk to the club and town. Excellent showers and helpful, friendly staff. Thank you.
2020 Each year for at least 5 years, we visit NBYC. Always pleasant. Lovely facility, excellent launch drivers as we typically are on a mooring. Also great home made ice cream near the bridge. See you next year.
by Matthew S. - Verified user on Sep 07, 2022
There was a north swell which is rare for buzzards bay. The NBYC assigned us a mooring out by the breakwater so it was rolls. We asked for a mooring closer in and we’re told nothing was available. We asked for a slip and we’re told none available. So we waited for the bridge to open and went up into the pond. The hbr master told us no anchoring but had three moorings available at no charge. We wasted $70 on a NBYC mooring. Not going back

Staff and club all great and thanks to the launch driver who pointed out the local ice cream place but we had a miserable night on an outer mooring. With the strong south & southerwesterly the motion was really uncomfortable. Would not go back in other than settled conditions.

Beautiful harbor and Yacht Club. Staff very friendly and helpful. Town is small with a few restaurants but good.
by Harold W. on Jul 05, 2022
Great harbor. The fuel dock staff and launch service staff were great. Unfortunately the club was closed so we didn’t get to experience anything NBYC has to offer.

Good stay and great launch service. Only complaint is the mooring we are on was way in the outer harbor and being open to the East it was a tad rough.

Nice little harbor. I don’t think I’ll be back for an overnight. Extremely bouncy night. Really not much to do except pursue some basket shops. No beach. NBYC closed for Labor Day Sunday?
by Jeanne D. - Verified user on Sep 06, 2021
The staff was very helpful and welcoming. It turned out we had chosen to stop in the harbor when not only was the Club's restaurant closed but most restaurants in town were as well. Our bad luck, no one's fault. However, we were placed on a very distant mooring at the harbor's entrance and when the swells started rolling in, we decided to drop the mooring and head to a more comfortable stay elsewhere.
by Ellen L. - Verified user on Aug 31, 2021
We arrived just after sunset and were thrilled that the launch greeted us and escorted us to our mooring. There was not a pick-up stick, but no problem threading the bow line through the eye on top of the mooring ball. We also filled our diesel tanks at their fuel dock in the morning. Plenty of room, great protection on the pilings and pleasant staff.

Great help in securing mooring both on line and when we arrived. Hugely efficient and friendly gas dock. We will be back

Greeted by a very knowledgeable launch driver with 21 years experience at NBYC.
He informed us of all the amenities (numerous) and recommended several places for dinner but the yacht club was our choice and happily so. Padanaram is a lovely stop for an overnight and to stretch the legs around the village.

by Ed A. on Apr 30, 2021
Stopped for the night en route to Mass from RI with our new to us 42 foot boat. Mark was amazing. He changed our mooring the day of to offer us better protection and came out on his motor boat to help us with the actual hookup. Highly recommendable location and very easy approach.
by John S. - Verified user on Aug 21, 2020
The New Bedford YC provided a great visit to our yacht club cruising group. Safe, outdoor dining, and even meals delivered to your boat via launch, if preferred. A favorite harbor, as always

Dining room and staff isn’t being aware and following the governments laws for covid protocol. Staff isn’t washing hands, bartenders using phones, computers, etc and serving drinks food to patrons. Not taking countability in guests safety for out of state travelers. Kitchen staff not masked while prepping/cooking.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Facilities were clean and well stocked. Quaint New England surroundings. Authentic bells and cannon fire at sunset and flag raising. Would definitely stay there again but careful of the swell with strong SE winds.

Showed us to our mooring. Launch service was quick and reliable.
