About The Pelican Yacht Club - Fort Pierce, Florida
We just celebrated our 70th year of outstanding tradition.
You can enjoy all that, and more - Dancing, Entertainment, Bridge, Swimming, Health and Fitness Center and, of course, boating and fishing - at the Pelican Yacht Club.
Founded in 1946 by Frank Rowell and Robert Gladwin, with land and buildings purchased from the U.S. Navy, and with generous donations of labor and materials from members and local businesses, the Club caters to the boating and fishing interests of its members.
A swimming pool, new dining room, and other facilities were added over the next two decades. Then, after a devastating fire in 1988, the club was completely rebuilt. In January, 1993, Pelican became an equity ownership club.
Today it offers an elegant, world-class Clubhouse in an unrivalled location on the Fort Pierce Inlet from the Atlantic Ocean. From a dining perspective, enjoy excellent cuisine in a beautiful and spacious dining room that affords a view of spectacular sunsets over the Indian River Lagoon. Of course, the desirable inlet location allows the club a superb Marina and boating facilities. Swimming, Tennis, Health & Fitness facilities and many social events and entertainment are also available.
Pelican Yacht Club is an Equity (Member Owned) Private Yacht Club and home to the Treasure Coast Sailfish Championship and the 36th Invitational Billfish Tournament.
