Located on the east bank of the River Severn, just South of Worcester, the Severn Motor Yacht Club has delightful surroundings. Our clubhouse and grounds have views out over the river with a backdrop of the Malvern Hills, yet are situated only 5 minutes from the M5 motorway. Bristol and Birmingham are just 45 minutes away.
Club members live all over the Midlands region and enjoy the combination of easy access and a secure site which boasts excellent moorings and a fully equipped clubhouse and bar. Worcester is and ideal base for exploring upstream to Stourport or downstream to Tewkesbury and Gloucester. Smaller vessels can navigate up the River Avon to Stratford. For those with salt in their veins, the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel are a days cruising away. Club cruises-in-company, regularly take members down the Bristol Channel and beyond.
In the clubhouse everyone gets a friendly welcome. Our facilities include a bar, restaurant, shower and extensive lounge areas. Food and drinks are available lunchtime and evenings from Friday through Sunday and our steward is usually on hand to look after members. Those with boats moored on the east bank benefit from an electricity supply, water supply and lighting. Increasingly our pontoon development programme will mean standards come up to and beyond those found in the best marinas.
Alternative moorings are available on the west bank, which has more limited facilities and these are priced very competitively.
Throughout the year there is a busy social and education programme running at SMYC. We are a recognized RYA Training Establishment and run relevant courses to suit demand. Members tend to meet up on Saturday nights, which are Club nights, and there are special events running year round. Close liaison with clubs up and down the River Severn means rarely a week goes by without a social event taking place. At the SMYC these include chandlery auctions, discos and formal dinners along with Christmas and Easter celebrations.
Membership is reasonably priced and available to both boating and social members. Family rates apply too, with mooring opportunities restricted to members. If you are interested in joining the Severn Motor Yacht Club call one of the flag officers listed on this site, or alternatively email us.
