Club Facilities

On the shore, our facilities include changing rooms and showers, a bar, a members room and club house. We have storage racks for tenders, a large parking area for dinghies and kayaks and secure storage for outboard motors. For larger tenders there may be space to store these in the dinghy park. There is ample car parking inside the lockable club site (access by a members swipe card) or just outside the club for higher vehicles.

Winter Storage

On the estuary the majority of boats are stored ashore in the winter. There are several options for winter storage at boatyards on the Exe, including Trout’s Boatyard and the Retreat Boatyard in Topsham, and MS Marine in Topsham. Craning facilities exist in these boatyards for members who wish to take their boats home on a trailer. Boats can also be stored ashore at the Quay in Exeter or afloat in the Exeter Ship Canal at Turf Locks. There is limited winter storage for day-boats available at the Yacht Club. 

The local boatyards provide most if not all needs for yacht maintenance and repairs.
