The purpose of the Gulf Harbour Yacht Club is two-fold: one, to promote the enjoyment, knowledge and safety of boating through organized cruises and social functions; and two, to help members develop new and lasting friendships among people with common interests.
The Club has a general membership dinner meeting, usually held on the first Tuesday of each month, for socializing. At Boaters’ Night, usually held the first Thursday of each month, news, upcoming cruises, and topics of interest are presented to the membership.
“Regular Membership” in yacht club is open to anyone who owns or has a financial interest in a boat in Lee, Charlotte, or Collier Counties and also owns property in the Gulf Harbour Community. “Property” in the Gulf Harbour Community is defined as real estate, housing, or a boat slip. A long term lease on housing or a boat slip maybe considered “Property” for membership during that lease period. Canoes, kayaks, jet skis, dinghies, jon boats, work boats, and commercial boats do not qualify a boat owner for membership. The Yacht Club Board reserves the right to review any boat that falls into these categories or is questionable as to whether it qualifies.
Members are encouraged to attend all membership dinner meetings, Boaters’ Night, club social events and to participate in planned cruises.
Those interested in joining may do so by completing a Membership Application Form and paying the membership dues. These forms are available at the Gulf Harbour Marina and may be left with Marina Office staff or mail to: Gulf HarbourYacht Club, c/o Membership Chair, 14490 Vista River Drive, Fort Myers, FL 33908.
