The Club has a proud and storied past as one of the premier Yacht Clubs on the East Coast and dates back to its formation in 1947 when Sidney Banks invited P F Murray and W H Terry to organize the new activity thus instigating the change of the Club's name to Cavalier Yacht and Country Club with activities beginning in the summer of 1948 when the Club sponsored sailing races and held its first cruise to Urbanna in which seven boats participated. The Club has grown its docks and capacity over the years starting with a ten by forty foot float, followed by a pier with ten slips constructed of untreated hard woods taken from the property – which in turn was replaced a few years later when the Beach Canal was opened and interest had soared. A second dock of 180 feet was constructed in 1951 with a pier at the end…and by 1997 the Club offered 85 slips on three piers but continued to maintain a wait list and in the summer of 2004 installed two sets of floating docks at the end of the North and East Piers taking the capacity to 100 slips.

With the growth of the Marina so grew the membership and in response to what had become and inadequate and dated Clubhouse a complete renovation and expansion of the existing facility was undertaken in 1996, as well as work to the seawall and fueling system .

The Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club Marina is situated on Little Neck Creek near Green Marker 23 of the Linkhorn Bay. The Lynnhaven River is the main title estuary flowing to and from the Cavalier. Surrounding the Club are Opulent Homes and all types of Waterfront Activities.

Starting in April, the Marina pops with activities such as the Opening Day Boat Show and Flag Raising, just to name a few, and moves right into Summer with Cruises up the Bay and the 4th of July Live Aboard. The Cavalier Marina has 3 piers - North, East and South; each pier is unique in structure and device.

The Harbormaster's Office overlooks the Yacht Basin and is the pinnacle of Marina Information. On the first floor of his office is the new Ship's Store, supplying Drinks, Clothes and Navigational Gear. Our staff will amaze you with service and a smile. If we don't have it, we can get it for you.
