 No Image Welcome to the Prince William Yacht Club's website.  Thanks for stopping by.  We're a group of recreational boaters hailing primarily from Prince William Marina located on the Occoquan River, just south of historic Occoquan, Virginia.


Our club is committed to promoting fun and responsible family boating so our members can safely enjoy the natural beauty of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.  We work to enhance our members' boating skills by sharing knowledge, arranging monthly cruises, and hosting social events where members can meet and share experiences. 

  
We are a member club of both the Potomac River Yacht Clubs Association (PRYCA) and the Chesapeake Bay Yacht Clubs Association (CBYCA). Our members stand ready to assist you in any way we can.
