Dining on Deck.jpeg

Our second-floor dining room and deck offer a spectacular setting overlooking the Connecticut River. The dining area features lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch with weekly changing specials.


Essex Corinthian Yacht Club provides regular social events for our club members. Join us for the fun and create new friendships at events throughout the year.

From the Commodore

Our mission is to provide an environment of fellowship for our active yachting membership and their guests. Our members enjoy a traditional, yet updated yacht club facility, offering spectacular views of Essex Harbor from the dining room and elevated deck. We take great pride in our racing and cruising heritage, as well as our on-shore activities and social events. Our club is open to members and their guests eleven months of the year.


Located on the waterfront in Essex, Connecticut, we welcome the visiting yachting community. The Club maintains moorings in Essex Harbor and Hamburg Cove. The anchorage is well protected and just six miles upriver from the Old Saybrook Light on Long Island Sound, and a 10-minute cruise to beautiful Hamburg Cove.


Our Clubhouse is near the foot of Main Street, within a few minutes walk of a museum, shopping, marine services and provisioning in the Village of Essex.

We extend a warm welcome to you from the Essex Corinthian Yacht Club!
