Since 1935, the Diversey Yacht Club has been known as one of the friendliest clubs in the Chicago harbor system.
Whether you're interested in cruising and travel, fishing, scuba diving, racing or simply socializing with other boaters, the DYC has something to offer you and your family.
We eagerly welcome new members and also welcome visitors from reciprocal yacht clubs, so stop by for a visit! Our members and our dedicated, friendly staff will make you feel at home. The Diversey Yacht Club is a member of the Lake Michigan Yachting Association, Chicago Yachting Association, Yachting Club of America and BoatU.S., and is represented in the Friends of the Marine Community, the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary, Boaters PAC and the Chicago Power Squadron.
Please note the Club has switched over to offseason hours, open 3 days a week. See the Club Hours page for specific days and times.
The Club’s Board of Directors has a couple of exciting open positions on its committee for those interested. This is an opportunity to join the team who helps shape the future of the Club. There is one open Board Member seat and one open Committee Member seat to manage our monthly newsletter and serve as our Ambassador of Goodwill. For those interested in bringing their enthusiasm and energy that makes our Club the best in Chicago, please contact the Board Commodore, Kathy Abdul, at skibum124(at)hotmail(dot)com.

We don't normally do classified ads on the DYC site, but since the designer of this web site is selling his boat, we're making an exception.
