Welcome to York Motor Yacht Club

Our friendly Motor Yacht Club is situated on the Yorkshire Ouse at Fulford, just a mile downstream of the beautiful city of York with its historical and social attractions.


Our members all have a common interest in motorboating and our club house provides a superb riverside location for our various boating and social activities. We have an active social programme throughout the boating season from April until November each year.


Alongside the riverbank we have both permanent moorings and visitors moorings for our non-mooring members. The moorings all have water and electricity and can provide a safe mooring for Winter if required.


Our members have a wealth of boating experience between them and are always willing to help new members enjoy their cruising.


New members are always welcome, so please get in touch if the boating lifestyle in a delightful setting with a big Yorkshire welcome appeals to you.

Further information about membership including subscription and joining fees can be found on the Membership Information page.


Members of the  Club, guests and visitors may use the club premises, and any other facilities of the Club, entirely at their own risk. See the important notice opposite.


We would like to bring to the attention of our members the intention of the government to implement a court judgement known as a CJEU. In simple terms this is the intent of the government to apply a European court judgement. This is a ruling to withdraw red diesel for marine propulsion use and replace it with white diesel with duty charged at the same rate as road fuel duty. Also fines for anyone caught using red diesel for propulsion could be similar to those for using red diesel in a road vehicle.

A government paper published on 15th of July outlines the steps the government intend to take to apply this ruling. There is an eight week consultation period and I would strongly urge all members to take part in this online consultation in an effort to have our say. If we come out of the Eu with a deal this will not stop this ruling as this judgement has already been accepted as part of the Brexit deal. This judgement would also have serious consequences to our ability as a club in supplying marine diesel to our members.
