Welcome to Grosse Ile Yacht Club

Welcome to Grosse Ile Yacht Club online! We encourage you to navigate the site and discover what amenities await you at GIYC.

GIYC was founded in 1934 by an intrepid group of local yachtsmen, and over the years the club has evolved into one of the finest clubs on the Great Lakes. We are situated in Southeast lower Michigan at the southern end of the Detroit River, overlooking the Northwest corner of Lake Erie. We are renowned for having one of the “Greatest Views on the Great Lakes”.

We are a full service yacht club, with over 100 deep-water wells with open direct access to the Detroit River and Lake Erie, a ten-ton travel lift and two-ton single point lift.

We have a full service dining room and banquet facilities to host weddings and parties for both members and guests. We are a great venue to host your wedding, class reunion, birthday party or other special occasion.

We offer a wide array of member events throughout the year, and we offer learn to sail and racing programs for both junior sailors and adults. Our sailing instructors and members will quickly get you acquainted with some of the finest sailing and boating on the Great Lakes.

Looking to join, or want more information? Look for the link to membership, or contact the club, and someone will return your call promptly. Thank you for visiting, and hope to see you soon!
