To be a member of the “Exclusive” “Duchess Yacht Club”, please submit your application, which you will find below.
“The Duchess” limits membership to 12 memberships annually and your application will be given every consideration during review.
The cost to join is $12,000.00 annually and membership runs 12 months from the date of joining. The payment will be a minimum of 50% on acceptance and the balance due in 30 days. These are non-refundable memberships, but “The Duchess” will allow transfers based on approval by ‘The Duchess”.
Your $12,000.00 membership fee is a pre-payment for your charters during that 12 month period. In the event you use up all your credit prior to the 12-month expiration, you may continue to pay on a per-use basis, or renew your annual membership at that time. You will continue to accumulate additional points under either program.
“The Duchess” will allow a member to gift a maximum of 25% of the members’ annual credit to a non-member, and a party who has never been a host aboard “The Duchess”.
Points earned, as stated on the benefits page, are redeemable after your membership fee is fully expended towards your charters. Points may be applied towards additional charters, or given in the form of ‘Duchess Gift Certificates”.
Points will remain valid for a period of 12 months after the expiration of your membership and can be combined with points earned in the following membership period. Points cannot be used as a form of payment towards an annual membership.
All other benefits of membership are listed on the Benefits page.
