Locals call it a “tropical showcase,” and with good reason. Cape Coral Yacht Club is one of the original landmarks of the city located on the Caloosahatchee River in a beautiful tropical setting. The Yacht Club Community Park is home to an amazing number of facilities and amenities, including its own public beach, a fishing pier and a community pool.
The Cape Coral Yacht Club is quite a gem. Built in 1958 and an original landmark of the city, it is still going strong attracting residents to the full range of facilities and amenities, including the public beach, fishing pier and community pool. With outdoor activities year round, Cape Coral Yacht Club is located at the Community Park in southeast Cape Coral directly on the Caloosahatchee River in a beautifully landscaped setting.
While sailboat access in Naples means spending $22M on a Port Royal estate……sailors looking to park their boat out back can comfortably score a home in Cape Coral for under $300,000. Currently, there are even a couple of sailboat access homes still left in the Cape for under $200,000.
Sailors relish the idea of docking their boat on a lift behind their home…..no fighting traffic to get to the marina……no waiting for the launch to the mooring……no incredibly expensive per foot charges for dockage. While sailboat access homes are out of reach financially in many parts of Florida, Cape Coral is the outlier with truly affordable sailboat access real estate.
