Hudson River Marina in Albany, NY

Albany Yacht Club, one of the oldest yacht clubs in the country (founded in 1873) is a member run club with dock space available for both members and transients. Whether you’re looking for a temporary spot for striper season or a spot for a month for your 160′ yacht, our beautiful pool, clean rest rooms, showers, laundry and more are available to you. Plus we’re close to restaurants and provisioning with friendly dockmasters ready to help you out.

Membership Based Club

AYC has both boating and social memberships available. Dock your boat, relax in our pool, enjoy drinks at our bar and dinners on Wednesday and Friday nights and have an amazing vantage point for the 4th of July fireworks. Memberships are inexpensive as our members volunteer their time to cook, clean, tend bar, install and remove docks and more.

Become a Member

From beautiful views of the Hudson River, to year round social activities including dinners and parties, to full access to our clubhouse and pool, plus the camaraderie of a great group of people, Albany Yacht Club is an amazing place for membership. And you can pick being either a boating member, with discounts on your slip and fuel and free nights at other yacht and boat clubs along the river, or a social member with full access to all of our facilities.

What does it mean to be a member? Our club is run by our member volunteers – from making dinners to tending bar to cleaning to putting the docks in and taking them out. No skills are necessary – we’ll help you every step of the way. And you’ll earn hours that help us keep the cost of membership way down compared to most other clubs. 

Boating on the Upper Hudson

Albany Yacht Club is the gateway to the Erie and Champlain Canals, located just 7nm south of Lock 1 (The “Federal Lock”). With dock space and fuel, and provisioning nearby, we’re a great spot to start or finish your trip through the canal system. 

Enjoy music on the river in both Albany and Troy during the Summer. See bald eagles flying gracefully through the air just south of us around Schodack State Park and “The Hook”. Watch the fireworks on the 4th of July from your slip. View the Fall foliage turning vibrant colors along the shore. The Upper Hudson is a combination of communities, nature and grace that many don’t realize is here to enjoy. 

I had the pleasure to meet and greet Ben and Ron, the Dockmasters. Very friendly and hospitable. Felt at home right away. Very helpful staff.

Great stop. Very accommodating. Great place to fuel dock and prep for the canal system or southbound run. Stores and supplies nearby. I’ve been ther many times and still enjoy my stay.
