With $7 million in capital improvements completed over the past six years, the yacht club offers unique equity club memberships where stakeholders and owners share a piece of prime, waterfront real estate.
The marina boasts 125 wet slips accommodating 45' to 210' megayachts, motor yachts, sailboats and center consoles. The equity membership program includes a reserved slip, gated/covered parking space and use of facilities such as the fitness center and Olympic-size heated pool, clubhouse access, outdoor cabana area with grills and a personal dock box.
Additional amenities include in-slip pump-out with fuel delivered by Peterson Fuel Barge, high-power electrical service, free Wi-Fi with direct Internet hook-up and valet parking for guests.
We have a very aggressive maintenance and capital program to keep the SHYC in top condition, says General Manager Doug Mason. Over the years, we've completed $7 million in capital improvements, all without assessment to our members.
Gorgeous landscape renovations, a new fitness center and a revamped 800-foot dock with concrete piles and composite decking on the canal were all finished in 2019.
In 2016, the $1.5 million electrical project upgraded all docks to provide a true 240-volt system, plus updated the main serve to deliver 480-volt 3 phase with up to 200 amp service.
