Beginning of the Down East Yacht Club

On a warm summer day in June 1966 a group of yachtsmen at the BOATEL MARINA (now Tugboat) was standing on the docks having a good time laughing and telling jokes when Vernal Furbush, owner of the BOATEL, came down on the wharf and wanted to know why we didn't start some sort of a "FUN CLUB" because the group was always getting together on one boat or another having such a good time.

It was talked over amongst the yachtsmen in the Marina and adjoining docks and they thought it sounded like a good idea. We told Mr. Furbush that we would start a club and he offered us a room, in what was the old Boothbay Harbor Yacht Club, where we could hold our activities.

On September 17th, 1966 a meeting was called; an agenda was prepared so that the meeting would cover all pertinent points. At this time Janie Hart seemed to be the prime mover in getting the project into gear.

Commodore's Message

Hello all,

The past few years for the Yacht Club have been exciting highlighted by the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the DEYC in 2017. The enthusiasm carried over into last year and I look forward to a fun-filled year again in 2018!

We are fortunate to have the support of our Club Members and the community here in Boothbay. The generosity of the expanded Blake family includes their annual hosting of the Haul Out Party at Blake’s Boat Yard. Frank and Nora Luke extend their DEYC hospitality at Luke’s Boat Yard for the Kick-off party before the Annual Cruise. Hodgdons’ Yacht hosts our Launch Party in June each year. Each of these events was well attended and enjoyed by all, thanks in part to the presence of our “WOODY WAGON”! Thanks go to the Tugboat Inn, our DEYC Headquarters, where we hold our Annual Meeting, the Commodore’s Luncheon and where our members avail themselves of in-town dock space and overnight moorings.

While the boating season may end with the Haul Out Party, DEYC plans many events during the winter months. In December the Club meets for our annual Christmas Party which will be held at The Daniel Hotel in Brunswick.
