General Information

Dinghy and Dinghy Storage

Dinghies and inflatables less than 12 feet in length can be stored in the water or on the dinghy racks. A seasonal charge beginning at $50 is required for dinghy tie up and rack storage. Please see the Club Steward. All dinghies stored at the club must display a registration sticker available at no charge from the Club Steward. Club dinghies are for short-term use only and must be returned promptly to the dinghy tie-up area. Please do not leave them on moorings.


The Hull Yacht Club does not provide moorings. Mooring setup and placement must be discussed with the Hull Harbormaster, Kurt Bornheim. He can be reached at or by phone at 781-925-0316.

Pump-out Service

Raise your orange flag or call 781-925-0316 to let the harbormaster know that you need a pump out. Flags can be obtained from the Club Steward. Please abide by the law. Do not discharge.

Kitchen, Grills and Deck Space

There is a self-service kitchen in the club, picnic tables and gas grills on the deck that are available to you. Feel free to use them with your guests but please remember to clean up when you are finished.
