After spending 84 years making just boats and high-profile yachts, the Sarasota Yacht Club is now gearing up to make a new beginning with its new futuristic resort-like clubhouse. The multi-level clubhouse opens to a panoramic view and offers 71 covered parking spaces. Inside there are several dining areas, both indoors and outdoors, lounges; both formal and informal, two dance floors, and an “honors gallery” for yachting trophies and photographic memorabilia. The marina overlooking the clubhouse with almost 100-plus vessels, which include housing yachts of up to 100 feet.
Gaining its inspiration from a luxury yacht, the 22,000-square-foot clubhouse already has 511 memberships with additional space for 200 more. The structure can withstand winds of up to 130mph and is constructed by Tandem Constructions with eco-friendly materials such as recycled materials and thick insulation.
