River Forest Yachting Center

River Forest Yachting Centers provide discriminating boat owners with luxurious, secure, long and short-term storage for boats from 24′ to 90′. Strategically located between the locks on both sides of Lake Okeechobee in protected fresh water basins, RFYC operates facilities in Stuart, Florida (est. 2005) and LaBelle, Florida (est. 2009). The Stuart location offers new customers stabilized land storage with tie-downs and free haul, clock, launch, and pressure wash. The LaBelle location offers Gulf Coast cruisers convenient storage near Fort Myers and is located on the Caloosahatchee River just east of the Ortona Lock.

A safe haven for boats, River Forest Yachting Centers include climate-controlled and non-climate controlled indoor storage coded for 140-mph winds, pristine secure land storage with hurricane grade tie-downs, and concrete wall side-tie dockage. Cruisers are welcome and will be pleased with the clean, peaceful surrounding and friendly staff.

RFYC offers a full complement of repair and maintenance services at both locations. Each facility provides a members-only Hurricane Club® for safe harbor and peace of mind in the event of a storm. RFYC is recommended by insurance carriers to satisfy the requirements of the underwriters for Florida boat storage during hurricane season.

LaBelle’s location offers a new floating dock, and Stuart boasts new secure stabilized land storage for 20 additional boats. New storage buildings are on the horizon for 2016 at both locations. RFYC is committed to continually growing and expanding their services to enhance their customer’s satisfaction and commitment to excellence.
