Sign up here for free to be a special guest of South Shore Yacht Club for a month. This program allows you to test drive the member experience completely without risk.

How Does It Work?

You put down a $100 refundable application fee. We give you a temporary club ID. For a month you can use the restaurant and bar, the grounds, the docks and all of our facilities. Paying as you go via cash or credit card, you have complete run of the place, just as if you were a dues-paying member.

We keep track of your total food, beverage and entertainment purchases. Up to $400 can be applied toward your initiation fee, if you go on to join the club. Plus you can apply your $100 application fee. We'll hold this option open for you for 30 days after your trial period lapses.

If you decide not to join, simply walk away without any obligation. We refund your application fee and wish you well.

Experience the club as much as you want. Bring down family and friends. But, you can TRY SSYC only once. And, eligibility is restricted to people who have never before belonged to the club. Also, please see "exclusions" in our online signup form below. 

For boaters, or people who want to get into boating, this is a great way to sample the boating life, SSYC style. But you need not be a boater or have any dream to own a boat. We have plenty of social members who just love the location and the people. In all of Milwaukee it's one of the coolest places to be, in the heart of the city's most happening neighborhood.
