The Manila Yacht Club (MYC), established in 1927, is a member’s only Club and is the country’s premier yacht club. Considered as a social and sporting Mecca, much of the Philippines boating activities are based at the MYC.
89 years on, the Club remains today, the country’s premiere yacht club due to its strong traditions and rich historic past. The Club is a yachting hub in Southeast Asia committed to the promotion of all forms of water activities.
When it comes to maintenance of member’s yachts, the MYC Yard facilities have been upgraded to include a 15-ton travel lift capable of lifting yachts up to 50 feet and a slipway for larger heavier yachts. A hardstand area, work dock, and concrete launching ramp are also available.

RAdm. Bayani R. Gaerlan AFP, Chief of Naval Staff, was guest of honor. He joined Commodore Francisco P. Garcia, Club Directors and other club members to celebrate this colorful annual event.
