About the Keyport Yacht Club

KYC Anchorage

Keyport Yacht Club has a large mooring field with room for about 160 boats and a dinghy dock. With 10 feet of depth, we can accommodate most yachts. We have two launches that run at busy times. Our launch operators are all Coast Guard certified.


Members own their own mooring anchor, chains, pennants, float and are responsible for their upkeep. When you join the anchorage, the Fleet Captain will assign you a mooring location.

If you decide to join our anchorage, you will enjoy some of the finest sailing and boating on the Raritan Bay!


Download the Fleet Captain’s Guide to the Anchorage, which provides the necessary steps for obtaining a mooring.


Please do not hesitate to contact the Fleet Captain, Bill Mulholland, with any questions at 732-245-9177 or njadventure@mac.com.



Winterizing Your Mooring

Members need to contract directly with a service provider of their choosing to winterize their mooring. Service providers who work in the Raritan Bay area are listed below. You will need to contact one of them to arrange winterization. The Club does not endorse one provider over another. 


If you do not take action, your mooring will not be winterized.
