Welcome to

Commodore’s welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Claremont Yacht Club. The club’s membership encompasses people from all walks of life who are interested in any form of on-water activity.

In addition to the senior membership, the club has a large contingent of social members who are just looking for a safe environment to enjoy the club’s relaxing atmosphere with friends and loved ones, or to enjoy one of the many functions the club runs throughout the year. We have a long and proud history of fostering sailing and power boating activity (something we’ve done since 1905) in a family-oriented environment.

We also offer an exceptional venue for holding weddings, parties, or any type of function you could imagine – in one of the best settings on the Swan River. Being located at Fresh Water Bay, the club is “mid-river”. We are ideally situated between the Port of Fremantle and Perth. Members have the choice of sailing or cruising the idyllic Swan River in either direction, up-river to Perth water, or down-river to the Port of Fremantle.

The club’s location is easily one of the best on the river, within walking distance from the heart of the new Claremont Quarter Shopping precinct. Claremont train station and convenient bus stops provide easy access to our club – situated at 4 Victoria Avenue, Claremont.

We are always seeking new members who would like to be involved in water activities (whether actually on the water or assisting on shore), in addition you may wish to join as a social member just to enjoy our club and its many dinning and function opportunities.

Are you looking:

To crew on a yacht or dinghy?
For a home for your power boat / yacht / dinghy?
For a suitable venue for your wedding, birthday, seminar or virtually any type of function?
For a social outlet that provides fellowship as well as entertainment?
For casual meals, mid-week?
For fine dining – a quiet, safe environment to enjoy a meal / drink with friends and loved ones?

We have many options and flexible packages to accommodate you – no matter what you are looking for. Simply click on the “contact us” link in the top right-hand side of this website to find out more. I urge you to come down and say hello, you won’t find your entry barred by massive gates and no-go zones. Take in the 180-degree views of the mighty Swan River, meet some lovely people, taste our sumptuous food, relax in our bars and eateries. I’m convinced you will walk away impressed by this unique club.
