Grosse Pointe Yacht Club

Sailing / Yacht Club , Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan, United States

The Grosse Pointe Yacht Club’s roots reach back to 1914, when 25 local men formed a club to pursue their interests in ice boating and sailing on Lake St. Clair.

Guy Lowell, a well-known Boston architect and yachtsman of the 20’s, was responsible for the unique 18th century Italian Renaissance design of the clubhouse. It was dedicated on July 4, 1929. The clubhouse’s harmonious blend of sun-splashed creamy stucco and red tile, its rhythmic curving arches and its elaborate gothic windows are dominated by a 187-foot bell tower, which serves as a navigational aid to Lake St. Clair boaters.

The club facilities have been updated and modernized several times. The harbor has been enlarged and improved as our membership quadrupled. However, the architectural integrity of Lowell’s original design and the spectacular view of Lake St. Clair have been meticulously maintained.
