Frankston Yacht Club Redevelopment Update and Clarification
The construction of the new building on the foreshore at Frankston is progressing well. It was previously the Frankston Yacht Club and the Yacht Club will be a tenant in the new building.
It is being built by Frankston City Council and designed to include a restaurant and a cafe as well as cater for the requirements of a yacht club, and all indications are that it will be a distinct and an excellent addition to the Frankston Waterfront.
The restaurant and cafe are being put out to tender, and the management arrangements for the building will be finalized once all the tenants have been determined.
Frankston Yacht Club hopes to offer a range of different memberships in the future once the management structure is confirmed between the tenants and the Council. Until this new structure is in place FYC is unable to provide details.
We are currently operating out of containers and demountable near the new building and are looking forward to moving to the new building in 2016. If you are interested in taking up sailing and would like to know more, then please drop in and say hello.
