Welcome to Waucoma Yacht Club

A family friendly yacht club safely located on the Quinnipiac River.

Waucoma is a family-oriented club that is great for boating and social activities. Located at 279 Front Street in New Haven, Connecticut, the Waucoma Yacht Club was organized on September 12, 1907, by seven members with a total of three boats between them. It was the third such club in New Haven (the Pequot Canoe Club is no longer in existence).

Mooring Slips

Nestled on the Quinnipiac River, our Docks are protected from the waves of Long Island Sound.  Our Brackish water, electrical hook-up, and water supply at the dock makes boating much easier.

Social Members

Our newly rebuilt club house and bar is open for social functions as well as to get a cold one out of the sun.

Social Events

Waucoma’s group of volunteers are always looking to put a smile on your face.  If it is a fishing tournament, social event, or special dinner, we aim to make you smile!  Check out our calendar to see what is next.


Our travel lift is available to the members at an additional fee (BOF).  Storage in the winter is available on location as well. Members are allowed to order all parts and accessories from our discounted catalogues.
