Why join or keep your boat at the RKYC? The RKYC is the best located, most fun and safest place to keep your boat on the stunningly beautiful Kennebecasis and Saint John river system.
RKYC members are also a community of power boaters and sailors who love to sail, love to cruise, love to race and more importantly we love to introduce people to our river(s) and share our knowledge and experience.
We have four categories of membership: Senior Membership (also known as boat owning membership), Associate Membership, Junior Membership, and Outport Membership. See below to apply or to choose which type of membership is right for you.
Breaking News: We now have a 75 ton travel lift that can accommodate boats up to 20 feet in beam. While we do make travel lift based services available to non members, we've greatly enhanced the range of services (including travel lift based services) that are available to Associate Members (with larger boats) at prices that are the same or similar to Senior Member prices. Join now because you must be an Associate Member for three months or longer to take advantage of Associate Member pricing.
