Welcome to the Riverside Yacht Club

Welcome to Riverside Yacht Club we are a family oriented boating club. Riverside Yacht Club was founded in 1960 on the banks of the Mystic River where shipbuilding once was once part of it’s heritage and a pinnacle in Massachusetts.

Medford’s Riverside Ave was once home to a number of ship yards which built 568 sailing ships in Medford. Timber was brought down to Medford via the Middlesex canal to the Medford ship yards. Ships were launched into the Mystic River on the banks where Riverside Yacht Club currently stands today. At one point one fourth of all ships were built in Medford until Iron steam ships were favored over wooden ships.
