In the late 1980's the IYC commissioned a Long Range Planning Committee to assess present and future Club needs. In 1989, the Committee recommended a renovated clubhouse, and significant improvements to Club waterfront assets for the purpose of better meeting the needs of boating members. With the support of a majority of members, the Club renovated the clubhouse and installed a 66-slip, 7 mooring, full service marina during the winter of '93-'94.
The marina occupies lake surface previously taken up by thirty or so boat moorings, which were laid out along a north/south axis in three lines. Every slip has access to water, electricity, and cable television. Rental rates are competitively priced starting at $47 per dock-foot, with a nominal upcharge for electricity. Once a member rents a slip, the slip can be renewed each year by paying the slip rental and membership dues in January for the coming season.
For first-time slip renters, a one-time initiation fee is assessed based on the rate of $44. per dock-foot. The fee, collected from all existing slip renters since 2007, is payable over a two-year period. The funds have been targeted for the engineering, design, and construction of major projects,including the replacement of the marina seawall and building reserves for floating dock replacement.
