The Miami Yacht Club is an informal Club located on Watson Island just North of Government Cut. The location is a great gateway to lower Biscayne Bay, the Keys and the Bahamas to the East. Miami Yacht Club members frequently form cruising trips to the Keys and the Bahamas.

In 1927, at the height of the City of Miamiís boom years, the South Florida Boat Racing Association, the forerunner of the Miami Yacht Club, was born. On February 27, 1934, the still young Association realized the first Miami-Nassau Race. Made possible by the full support and assistance of the Mayor of Miami and co-sponsored by the City through the early 1970's, the Miami-Nassau Race was organized by the Nassau Yacht Club of the Bahamas and the soon-to-be Miami Yacht Club. On November 23, 1934 the Association changed its name to the Miami Yacht Club. Following World War II, Miami became a permanent family town. During this time the Miami Yacht Club moved to its permanent home and Watson Island was a logical and appropriate choice.

The Club offers Youth and Adult Sailing programs, Racing, hosts Regattas and sponsors Sea Explorer Ship 1927 and Community Service

Miami Yacht Club includes: dry storage along with a limited number of wet slips, lounge, bar and restaurant, is open six days a week from 11:30-11 PM, offers lunch and dinner daily, except on Mondays until 9 PM.
