ETHOS & mission statement

The Sussex Motor Yacht Club will draw together people with mutual interest in motor yachts: past, present and future. Members will wish to honour and preserve the proud history of the Club whilst looking actively at future power systems so that the Club remains current, relevant and exciting. The Club’s nautical theme will be complemented by a strong social purpose to enable the sharing of experiences in a convivial atmosphere. In line with its special history and high rank amongst yacht clubs, some social events will be appropriately traditional and formal. The Club will adopt a business-like approach to ensure its continuance in line with its ethos.

Sussex Motor Yacht Club is the world’s oldest, and therefore senior, Motor Yacht Club. We welcome everyone with an interest in and love of the sea and water sports. It does not matter if you are a Super Yacht owner, a Motorboat or Sailing boat owner or if you have no boat at all.  Whether novice or experienced you are welcome. The Club’s objective is to provide opportunities for you to expand your horizons and develop your boating skills in the company of others. Indeed, one of the Club’s strengths is the willingness of its more experienced members to provide support and encouragement to others, both on and off the water

Being a beginner at first, it was very reassuring for me to use your services. I could alway use some help, and you were always there! Now, I can say that I am a professional, but still enjoy your club very very much!

My family loves going to fishing trips, no matter what the time of year it is. You guys never let us down! Thanks for the amazing summer memories, for winter extreme and the autumn pieceful lake fishing.
