We are pleased that you are interested in joining the Monmouth Boat Club (MBC). MBC was established in 1879 for the greater enjoyment of the Navesink River through a common interest in boating. It is an informal and friendly organization. The members are drawn together by a love of sailing, rowing, and power boating plus the many social activities at our historic clubhouse on the Navesink River.
You may apply to join MBC as either a Regular/Family, Young Adult or Junior member.
A Family membership may also include sons or daughters who have not reached the age of 23. MBC extends privileges to Regular members that include full 24-hour access to club facilities, the opportunity to participate in club events, and full voting rights at our monthly General Membership meetings.
MBC is maintained entirely by its members. There is no full time staff, so membership includes both privileges and responsibilities. Responsibilities include ongoing participation in various work parties and events throughout the season and, if interested, as club supervisors and officers.
To take the next step towards becoming a member, complete the application below. You will also need a sponsor, who must be a current club member. If you do not have a sponsors the Membership Chair will help find these for you.
Applications must be accompanied by payment for the initiation fee and 2021 dues that are based on your Membership type:
Regular Member/Family Membership - 36 years of age or older, One-time Initiation Fee $1,300, plus 2021 Dues ($824/year) = $2,124 first year total
Regular Member/Family Membership - If between 28 and 35 years of age, 50% off One-time Initiation Fee ($650) instead of $1,300 = $1,474 first year total
Young Adult/Family Membership - If between 24 and 28 years of age, 25% of One-time Initiation Fee ($325) instead of $1,300 and reduced annual dues of $494 = $819 first year total

Upon receipt of your completed application and payment of the initiation fee and 1st year dues your application will be read into the minutes at the next General Meeting which are held monthly. Finally, your application will be voted on at a subsequent meeting of the General Membership where your Sponsor speak on your behalf.
