Welcome to the highest ranked and most popular yacht club in Southwestern Michigan!
At New Buffalo Yacht Club (NBYC), the spirit of friendship and community makes all feel welcome.  No matter how you arrive, by land or water, you will always be greeted by a warm smile and outstretched hand.

Our membership is varied, comprised of boaters (power and sail) and non-boaters; singles and families; new and life-time members, that all call NBYC their home.  While some of our members live in New Buffalo year-round, many of our members are from out of state, all proudly fly the NBYC Burgee.

Everyone agrees, no matter where you are from, you will always feel welcome at NBYC!
