Docks & Moorings

SHYC offers a limited number of docks and moorings for members near the club. To learn more about costs and how we allocate slips, contact the chair of the fleet & docks committee.

The club also has transient docks available at times during the summer when members are cruising their boats.   If you are visiting the area and interested in using a dock please call the club manager at 269-637-2305 to check on availability.  You must be a member of another yacht club to use SHYC dockage.

The South Haven Yacht Club is a private Club, where members and their guests can enjoy dining. During the “season,”  we are open for dinner on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. (May through September) Weather permitting, you may wish to have a casual dinner on the deck, or choose a more formal dining experience inside. During the summer, Thursday nights feature a lighter fare and the club is buzzing with activity after the sailors come off the water.  Friday nights may be crowded and busy — while Saturday nights tend to be quieter.

The Club is open year round on Tuesday and Saturday nights for dinner from 5pm to 9pm.


The SHYC is available to members, guests sponsored by a member, and yachtsmen with reciprocal privileges. We offer a complete package of menus, including catering services in your private home or on your boat.

Club Manager and staff can create a masterful, customized menu to ensure your event is successful and memorable. Our professional, warm and friendly staff have but one goal – to make your event great! Enjoy the wonderful food and excellent service while your guests marvel at the beautiful view of the harbor.
