Owned By: Town of Braintree/Braintree Yacht Club
This private yacht club on the Fore River takes pride in its “do it yourself” attitude. Its extensive float system, with 130 slips, was built and is maintained by its members. The Braintree Yacht Club is a full-service facility, providing power, water, pump-out, and Wi-Fi service to all members, as well as hauling, launching and winter storage. The launch ramp is open to the public, but no public parking is provided on site.
Located on the Monatiquot River Walk, right next door to Watson Park.
The Town of Braintree leases this property to the yacht club. Priority club membership is given to Braintree residents.
This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.
The 1-mile Monatiquot River Walk passes right by the Braintree Yacht Club.
Habitats and Wildlife
The Braintree Yacht Club is located at the head of the Fore River, just downstream from the Monatiquot River.
The Fore River serves as the boundary line between the towns of Weymouth and Braintree. It flows for about 3 miles, into Quincy, where it meets Town River, and then flows for another 2 miles into Hingham Bay. In its final few miles, the Fore River is nearly a mile wide in some places. Follow the Fore River Watershed Association more information about the Monatiquot and Fore Rivers.
