Floating Marina Project

The Royal Yacht Club of Victoria is one of the oldest yacht clubs in Australia, but we are always looking to make changes and upgrades to improve the facilities available for our members.

The Club is proposing to replace the Club's existing piled marina with a new floating marina, providing berthing for nearly 240 boats. Final approvals and funding options are currently being sought so that construction may commence.

If you are interested in putting your name down to express your interest in a pen in our new floating marina or if you'd like some further information, please contact the office on (03) 9397 1277 or by emailing rycv@rycv.asn.au.

  What pen sizes will be available? The Club will have four pen sizes available for purchase. They are 10, 12, 14 and 17 meters. We will also have a limited number of 'plus size' berths available for boats larger than 17 meters.   How will my boat be measured to determine the pen size that I will need? To avoid any protrusions over the walkways, or into the fairway, your boat will be measured by its exact physical length, including all protrusions.   Will there be pens available in the new Marina for Motor Boats? Yes.   What is the expected timeframe for the new Marina? We are currently in the process of obtaining all of the necessary approvals and funding for the new marina. Once this is finalised we will have a clearer expected timeframe.
