A private buyer has bought Port Navas Yacht Club, the only privately owned yacht club on the Helford River.

Believed to have opened in 1955, Port Navas Yacht Club lies close to the Duchy Oyster Farm near the head of the creek, and offers pontoon and creek moorings for yachts, motorised boats and tenders for access to the main river. 

The club also includes a bar/restaurant, popular with both social and boating members, as well as two holiday apartments.

Ben Davies, from real estate service provider Savills, said: “This property offered a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone with a love of boating to buy their very own yacht club and it was a chance that the buyer could not resist.  The new owner has chosen to keep it as a yacht club with waterfront bistro, moorings and pontoon berths alongside residential waterside apartments, which will come as a great relief to the club’s members and local residents.”
