Business Overview

The Rhode Island Yacht Club is a private club, surrounded by Stillhouse Cove, in historic Edgewood, Rhode Island.
Our contemporary clubhouse and facilities include a break-water protected marina and an expansive mooring field, all less than three miles from downtown Providence.

Founded in 1875, it is the oldest yacht club on Narragansett Bay and among the one of oldest in the country. The Rhode Island Yacht Club maintains a long history and strong traditions of competitive racing and giving back to the community.

The marina has a hoist, break water protected slips with electricity and water, moorings, dinghy dock, launch shuttle, pump-out station, and showers and changing facilities among other amenities. There are tables, picnic tables and gas grills for on-shore meals overlooking the bay.

Our clubhouse is only steps away from historic Pawtuxet Village with shopping, dining, nightlife and so much more. The Club operates year-round, with Club racing, Club cruises, fishing tournaments, inter-club events and many other social activities too numerous to mention. The newly renovated Clubhouse features panoramic views of Narragansett Bay and offers both formal and informal dining. The facility is available to be rented for private events upon request.

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website. If you are in the area, a tour of our facilities can be arranged. To learn about the possibility of membership in Rhode Island Yacht Club, please visit the membership page.


The Rhode Island Yacht Club provides our Members and their guests with an exceptional and diverse menu of favorites.
Our Galley Pub in the Members' Lounge serves refreshing drinks and delicious food 7 days a week, year around (special situations excepting). Our menu always has something for everyone, including many gluten free and vegetarian options.

Our Chef Heather and her team have put together a great selection of items for both our Pub Menu and our Friday night dinners. Each Friday, our Commodore Room is transformed into One Ocean Avenue where you can experience the best food and views in the neighborhood.

During the warmer months, our Members enjoy socializing on our deck or at our Tiki Bar, playing games on the lawn, or sipping a relaxing cocktail by music and moonlight at our water-side fire pit.

Members may also place orders for take-out food through their membership account or by calling the Pub. What could be easier than having your day's feast catered and ready to go when you are?

Our Friday Night One Ocean Avenue dinners are open to the public. Reservations are kindly requested and may be made by calling (401) 941-0220 ext. 1. Members may make reservations online. Please note that Business Casual attire is required for dining events in our Commodore Room, and non-members are requested to park on the street or take a car service.
