Who We are

Hull Yacht Club is a low-key, family-oriented, member-run club with a strong spirit of volunteerism. It is multi-generational, with young and old playing important roles in membership and activities. While there is a very active racing program, many other members use the club as a base for cruising and power boating, with groups often forming for weekend trips. Membership rates are reasonable, and the facilities are geared for the active boater. The club has about 230 members this year. Nearly half that number comes from Hull. Others come from the nearby towns of Cohasset, Hingham, Marshfield, Norwell and Scituate. The club is governed by an executive board of six officers and four members. A club steward directs the professional staff. The clubhouse and docks are located on Allerton Harbor, which is well protected from all points of the compass and near open water. The varied anchorages of the Boston Harbor islands are just minutes away, while many picturesque North and South Shore harbors are an easy weekend cruise.


Who we do

Hull Yacht Club provides a variety of services to boaters from May to October. The club actively supports sailboat racing, with Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) making up the majority of the club’s racing fleet. The club sponsors a weekly Rhodes 19 series. Three club launches carry members from our docks to boats on moorings and back. Launches operate from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., with extended hours for special events, such as races and fireworks displays. The clubhouse is a spacious, weathered-shingle building that offers a 270-degree view stretching from historic Boston Light through the harbor islands and the Boston skyline to the waters of Hull and Hingham bays. A bar is available for members and guests, and gas grills are available on the porch, where informal cookouts are held on Thursday evenings. There are also newly added shower facilities.


Boating Services

Launches, docks, hoist, hoses to fill water tanks and wash down decks provide members with facilities to prepare and maintain their vessels for day-sailing, cruising and racing. The club also owns “Harbinger”, a 35-foot motor vessel that supports racing activities. Dinghy racks and tie-ups enable members to get to their boats when launch services have ended.


Learn to sail Instruction

The club operates very successful sailing instruction for youth and adults. Children can start out at a very early age and become proficient at small boat handling and general nautical skills. Young people can move along at individual rates into intermediate and advance programs. Instructions start with Optimists and progress through to 420s. The club competes in many interclub competitions and has representation at most major youth regattas. Adults can participate in a six-week program featuring Rhodes 19 day sailors


Social Events

A season-long series of social gatherings – a June Lobster Bake, a July 4 Cookout and Reggae Night bring members and friends together for dining and music, often live. A full-service bar, with a widescreen TV, is open most days and evenings.


Community Service

The clubhouse is available for use by community organizations and private groups for meetings, receptions, dinners, weddings and memorial services. The club gives reduced rates to community organizations to strengthen ties among both.
