About Us

The Kelowna Yacht Club

For most people, the Kelowna Yacht Club is the downtown marina sheltering over one thousand boats, but there’s a lot more going on that isn’t as visible. Unlike many other non-profit organizations, the Kelowna Yacht Club and our Members are very involved in a broad range of community activities.


Our Guiding Principles
  • Provide a welcoming and positive experience to our valued Members and guests in everything we do.
  • Recruit, develop and retain highly skilled staff who are able to deliver on our brand promise of consistent high-quality and personable service.
  • Ensure that our long standing traditions and boating excellence are preserved and passed onto future generations of Members.
  • Offer educational, social and recreational opportunities using our facilities, staff and volunteers.
  • Encourage participation and membership pride, fostering a spirit of camaraderie, community and sense of belonging.
  • To be financially viable and effectively market the yacht club services to enhance our image, brand and economic strength.

Rich in History • Embracing the Future.
