A Top 7 “Best for Boating” Community – An Inside Look at Sailfish Point

Posted on: June 7, 2022 | Read Time: 4 minutes

With the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Indian River to the west, and St. Lucie Inlet to the south, Hutchinson Island holds some of the country’s best-kept secrets, with miles of pristine beaches and endless waterway access. From angling adventures catching world-class sailfish within the Sailfish Capital of the World to day trips to the Bahamas just 55 miles east, this 23-mile barrier island is well-known for its laid-back waterfront lifestyle, and a boating crossroads to the very best of national and international waterways.

Sitting at the southernmost tip of Hutchinson Island, the Sailfish Point Yacht Club and Marina provides an ideal launch point for any waterfront adventure. The deep-water marina is not only one of Florida’s largest privately owned marinas but is consistently recognized by Links Magazine as one of seven “Best for Boating” communities in the country. The protected harbor offers 84 water slips that can accommodate vessels up to 125 feet in length, along with an additional 45 dry slips for personal watercraft and boats up to 25 feet. The Sailfish Point Marina is not only the launch point for a wide range of water-based activities, but also a social centerpiece that brings together boat lovers of all ages. See how the community’s private Yacht Club provides a welcoming and exciting atmosphere for all.

No Boat Needed for this Private Yacht Club

One of this private community’s most treasured groups is the Sailfish Point Yacht Club. The Club was formed in 1986 by Members who shared a passion for being on the beautiful waterways that surrounded Sailfish Point. Now, the Yacht Club has become the destination of choice for boating, fishing, and yachting activities. Since no boat is required to join, more than 50 percent of the community enjoys the endless social activities and great camaraderie the Yacht Club provides. Here’s a glimpse at just a few of the activities members look forward to:

Cruising Along the Coastline

The Yacht Club hosts numerous day and overnight cruises throughout the season. Day cruises take Members to nearby private clubs for special events or monthly meetups at the area’s plentiful waterfront restaurants. The Club also hosts organized raft-ups to watch special events, including the Stuart Air Show, Stuart’s Speedboat Races, and the Sailing Regattas. The overnight cruises include fully planned trips from Palm Beach and Cape Canaveral to longer trips along Florida’s West Coast and the Bahamas. Each trip will include various stops along the way, where residents can tour the area, golf courses, fine dining, “docktail” parties, and shopping excursions.

Sailing and Paddle Sports

While many residents spend their weekends boating or yachting, a growing number have found their love for stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, and sailing. Sailors of all ages and skill levels actively participate in the U.S. Sailing Center of Martin County and the St. Lucie Sailing Club. For kayakers and paddler boarders, the saltwater flats between the Intracoastal Waterway and Hutchinson Island are protected by a series of spoil islands, creating a safe environment for exploring. The kayak group will also take a fleet of kayaks by trailer or motorboat to explore even more saltwater and freshwater locations.

Previous trips include the Navy SEAL Museum, Hutchinson Island House of Refuge, Florida Oceanographic Society, and Jupiter Lighthouse Museum. Eco-tours with noted marine experts have also been held for Sailfish Point Members.
