Charlevoix Yacht Club Breaks Ground on New Property


In September, construction of Charlevoix Yacht Club’s new two-story, 10,000-square-foot facility designed by Andre M. Poineau officially began. The building on Lake Charlevoix has been a vision for 30 years and will include an events center, marina facilities, bathhouse, clubhouse and storage. It is expected to be completed in early 2021.  

“Charlevoix has a long history of yachting and boating,” says Bob Grove, Charleviox Yacht Club commodore. “This cements the future of the yacht club and provides a significant place where boaters can meet.” 

The existing boathouse will be demolished, while the current yacht club building, located across the street at 209 Ferry Avenue, will remain for now. The new building will be co-owned by Irish Boat Shop and CYC Partners LLC. 

“The landscaping and building itself really did a good job of keeping views open for neighboring properties,” Charlevoix Zoning Administrator Jonathan Scheel said when the zoning was approved earlier this year. “They will be good neighbors, a good value for the citizens of the city with another place on the water for the events, better facilities for our boaters.”
