Claremont Yacht Club is ideally situated in the shelter of Freshwater Bay of the Swan River almost midway between Fremantle Harbour and Perth City. It is the ideal spot to cast off for a cruise or for fishing any time of the year.
Claremont Yacht Club has a deep commitment to the boating traditions. It was founded in 1905 by visionary yachtsmen who enjoyed the companionship of those who shared their enthusiasm for boating and their love of the sea. Since then, the Club has developed into a full-service operation embracing all forms of boating activities within the community, earning a reputation of being one of the friendliest clubs on the Swan River.
The membership reflects the club’s heritage and that of the local area, including business and professional people from all parts of WA; local families and social groups. The Club is controlled by Members and each Member has a voice in the use and care of the club’s facilities and services.
The facilities are excellent and there are activities to suit everyone. Whether a member owns a boat or not, the Claremont Yacht Club offers the benefits of a private social Club with extraordinary services and facilities. The Club offers a fully-licensed bar along with casual and formal dining with stunning views overlooking Freshwater Bay.
The Club has a crisp boating atmosphere, but neither boating nor dining is our sole focus. Our purpose remains as it was at its inception: to provide amusement, recreation, and entertainment for the Club Members and friends. One universal goal sets our Club apart from any other: CYC is committed to welcoming newcomers and to preserving the warm and comfortable ambiance that makes it truly a “home away from home” for all its Members.
The Officers, Committee Members and Staff strive to make the Club a fun place to be while upholding the traditional values associated with boating activities, coupled with gracious dining and positive social experiences.
