**Please note** The slips and storage areas at Macassa Bay Yacht Club are for members only, we have no public or seasonal facilities. If you are interested in becoming a member at MBYC, please read the information below carefully.
Information on this page is for existing and prospective members and was current at time of publishing. Check the clubhouse notice board and at the bar to confirm the latest information.
MBYC is a very popular and suits boating enthusiasts who enjoy the hands on type of club, where members contribute to many aspects of operations. All members are asked to give back to the club through work parties as well as small projects to maintain our compound, docks, and clubhouse. Because of our self help nature, Macassa members also enjoy some of the most economical membership and slip rates on the lake.
Current membership rates for 2022:
Social membership – $65 +HST = $73.45. Social (also known as associate) members are entitled to enjoy MBYC’s facilities including the clubhouse and bar as well as attend any social events hosted by the club. Slips are not available to social members and this membership level has no reciprocal rights at other clubs. You can complete an application to become a social member at the bar. Note that new social members must be endorsed by a full member.
Full membership – $250 +HST = $282.50. Full members are entitled to enjoy all of MBYC’s facilities, have reciprocal rights at partner clubs, and have a summer wet slip and winter dry land storage. A full membership can only be granted to boat owners and is contingent on a slip being available at the time. Currently, MBYC does not have any slips available which means we are not accepting new full members at this time. To be put on a list to become a full member, you must be a current social member and complete a full member application at the bar. This application must be endorsed by two current full members to be accepted. Currently the wait list to become a full member is approximately 4-5 years.
MBYC clubhouse and compound use an electronic fob system for access and security. All members are required to have a fob. Fob’s can be acquired at the bar for a deposit of $25. The $25 deposit will be refunded when the member leaves the club.
