Business name : Mobile Yacht Club

Mobile Yacht Club members are proud of our club’s long and oftentimes colorful history. Established in 1847, Mobile Yacht Club is the 2nd oldest private boating and sailing club in the United States and the oldest club on the Gulf Coast.

Throughout its long and distinguished history the club has been known as Mobile Regatta Club, Eastern Shore Yacht Club and Mobile Yacht Club. In the early years, unlike today, the “eastern shore” of Mobile Bay was reachable only by boat as there were no causeways or bridges over the Mobile River delta, and the Eastern Shore (or, as we call it, “over the bay”) was summer home to many Mobilians.
