About Us

Point Independence
Yacht Club

Serving our historic New England seaport community for over 100 years!

It’s been over a hundred years since a group of local businessmen and early film, vaudeville, and stage actors gathered to organize and finance the founding of the Point Independence Yacht Club in the coastal village of Onset, Massachusetts.

Just beyond Onset Bay Marina, you can see our attractive, two-story clubhouse, topped by a pyramidal roof. It sits at the head of a long pier with two sets of docks fanning out on either side.

The club is surrounded by a quiet residential community with quick access to the historic onset village which features local eateries, a market, and a selection of gift, antique and clothing shops.

Our clubhouse features a great bar with a second story deck overlooking breathtaking views of onset harbor and our private sandy beach.

Amenities for our members and their guests include moorings and slips, bathrooms, showers, trash removal, fuel, water hook ups, wifi, laundry, ice, electric and more.

For transient boaters we offer transient dockage through dockwa, fuel, ice, pump outs and more.

Come and experience for yourself what so many mariners have called the hidden gem of buzzards bay.
