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.

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.

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.

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.
