Bay Head Yacht Club

Established in 1888

The mission of the Bay Head Yacht Club is to attract and engage dedicated members to enjoy yachting, tennis and other compatible leisure and sporting activities in a family oriented environment that respects tradition, courtesy and sportsmanship. We are committed to serving as an inspirational center of yachting activities regionally and to supporting yachting nationally. We provide gracious dining and social activities in an inviting setting in which members and their families can participate with pride and enthusiasm.


Bay Head Yacht Club was established over a century ago "to promote yachting and rowing and to foster athletic sports upon the water." Historically recognized buildings offer breathtaking views from the northernmost point of the Barnegat Bay. The Club has weathered many storms and has always emerged stronger.
