Irvington Boat Club (IBC) was founded over half century ago in 1958 by river-oriented village citizens with the assistance of Mr. Burnham of Lord and Burnham Greenhouses. The historic greenhouse manufacturer had been Irvington’s major industry and still owned the riverfront property. He believed it was essential for people to have direct access to the Hudson River. Over the last 50+ years, the Irvington Boat Club has hosted many generations of users.
Originally, membership was limited to village residents, but that policy was amended long ago. For a good part of the club’s life, it primarily served motorboat and sailboat users. However, over the last 15 years the club has evolved reflect the changing way people interface with the river — people who enjoy BBQing at the beach, enjoying the swimming or kayaking, IBC still has new, active motor and sailboat members. Beyond boat storage and river access, the club affords members use of a clubhouse with kitchen on the river, a deck offering beautiful views, a beach, a dock, and a float. There is seating on the deck, beach, and dock, and tables on the deck and beach. Gorgeous Hudson River sunsets come at no extra charge!
The Irvington Boat Club is home to Irvington Fire Department’s rescue boat and host to meetings of the NY State Hudson River Coast Guard auxiliary. The club is a member of Riverkeeper and the Hudson River Boat and Yacht Club Association.
Kayak slips and moorings are available. See the membership application on this website if interseted.
