Sonar Charters

The EYC Sonar Charter program offers members access to the Club-owned Sonar sail boats without the expense of ownership.  Designed by renowned naval architect Bruce Kirby, the Sonar affords those who sail it the ability to line up against the world's best competition on one day, meander around the harbor with friends on the next, and also stand firm in lumpy water.

Whether you're off for a pleasure sail or want to give your children a chance to practice the skills they've learned in the Junior Sailing Program, members can reserve our family-friendly boats Puritan, Volunteer, Mayflower and Yankee in three hour blocks. We also hold "family-day" races in Sonars on various Sundays. Any EYC member or spouse may reserve and sign out a boat at the front desk once they have been properly checked out by the year-round Sailing Director, Greg Wilkinson, and have received a signed waiver for the season. For further information, contact Greg at 978-290-1487 or by e-mail at
