The members of the Edison Boat Club are proud of our club’s beautiful facilities located on the picturesque gateway to the river. Our clubhouse and marina are maintained by both the members and our professional staff.

The EBC was founded in 1914 and started out as a men's sailing club with one finger of docks and a small storage building. The Club is one of the oldest boat clubs on the Detroit River. We are located on Lycaste, at the foot of Detroit Edison's Conner Creek Power Plant, minutes away from Lake St. Clair, downtown Detroit and Belle Isle. Today, we boast two riverside buildings, a 110 slip marina, sailing instruction, and year round entertainment.

The EBC offers a large variety of year round family entertainment for boat owners and non-boat owners alike. Enjoy affordable family dining with a world-class view of the Detroit River from our restaurant and bar.
