The Yacht Clubs of the Americas is expanding its network outside Florida and the Bahamas with the launch of the Tiki Island Yacht Club near Galveston, Texas.

The new YCOA marina will sit on more than five acres of waterfront real estate on West Bay, ensuring permanent water access for slip owners. It offers 250 dry slips, accommodating vessels up to 45 feet in length and 50,000 pounds, and 150 covered wet slip for vessels up to 100 feet in length.

The sales center for Tiki Island Yacht Club will launch with an open house from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 9 featuring a crawfish barbecue. The event will continue from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. May 10

Based in Fort Myers, Fla., YCOA acquires and develops marina properties and converts them into private membership yacht clubs featuring dry rackominiums and wet dockominiums with five-star concierge service. YCOA has locations in Naples, Tampa, Key West and Grand Bahama Island.
