Welcome to

Northampton Boat Club

Probably the best boat club on the Nene

The Club

Welcome to the official website of Northampton boat club. We are a family orientated boat club situated on the river Nene, just a short distance from Northampton town centre.

We are a club run by the members for the members, and encourage everyone to take part in our activities. We have a very busy social calendar throughout the year, so there is always something to do.  In addition to this we have weekend ‘ Work Parties’ where members are encouraged to come along and assist with maintenance in and around the club.


Northampton boat club originally “Weston boat club” was formed in 1911, and is reputed to be the second oldest boat club of its kind in the country. A book chronicling the clubs history is available on request from the club secretary, and makes very interesting reading to both boating enthusiasts, and local historians alike. secretary@northamptonboatclub.co.uk


Our club membership is capped at 150, although occasionally we do have spaces that become available. To apply for membership, the main criteria is that you own a boat. Craft length for a regular mooring is restricted to 50 feet, although visitors with longer craft can stay temporarily for up to 2 weeks. If you have a larger craft moored elsewhere, you are still more than welcome to apply for membership. Alternatively if you are a member of another boat club you can also apply for associate membership.

If you would like to visit us by boat please contact our Harbour Master.
