A Message from the Commodore

Welcome to Meydenbauer Bay Yacht Club located on the shores of beautiful Lake Washington in Bellevue. Since 1946, MBYC has offered moorage and social and educational activities to its 630+ members. MBYC prides itself on its member participation and ‘can do’ spirit which makes us one of the premier Puget Sound yacht clubs. 

MBYC owns or leases a total of nine outstations with five outstations located in US Waters (Dock Street in Tacoma, Eagle Harbor on Bainbridge Island, Port Ludlow, Deer Harbor and Friday Harbor) and four outstations located in the Canadian Gulf Islands (The Port of Sidney, Salt Spring Island, Mill Bay and Port Browning.)  All of these outstations have docks for members to tie their boats up to and are free for member use.  In addition, the Club has reciprocal privileges with approximately 60 other yacht clubs in the area. Our active boating membership ensures that you will run into a friend however far north or south you may travel. 

We offer 7 hosted cruises per year with each attended by 20 to 60 boats.

In the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons the fun moves inside our Clubhouse with numerous social events for both adults and children. Some of these events include weekly dance lessons, formal balls, bingo and bunco nights, engine maintenance classes, children’s holiday parties, the Seafair Special People’s Cruise, book club, crafts groups, field trips, women's and men’s lunches, monthly dinner meetings attended by between 160-250 of our members, and many, many more activities. MBYC has a large and successful predicted log navigation program and a very active youth sail program. Founded over 20 years ago, Youth Sail runs for 10 weeks each summer to teach sailing to area youth using our own large fleet of Optis, V-15’s and Lasers. Youth Sail classes are always fully subscribed and serve more than 300 area youth annually. 

We are family oriented and have several 2nd and 3rd generation members. We are particularly proud that the age range of the membership runs from 21-104 years. The club is well integrated and tends neither young nor old. We also pride ourselves on our active work to integrate our new members into the club so that they may too enjoy the full benefit of all MBYC offers. 

If we can answer any questions, please contact us. We look forward to showing you our beautiful docks, grounds and clubhouse 

Best Regards,
Jason Moore
