The Eau Gallie Yacht Club is a U.S. boating organization, located in Indian Harbour Beach, Florida with access to the Indian River. The original clubhouse is also a historic building. The club has 1,200 members.
In 1907, a local group formed and launched the Eau Gallie Yacht Club with George F. Patterson as the first Commodore. Others in the group included General John B. Castleman, Alexander Hodgson, the Gleasons and the Rossetters. In 1910, the Eau Gallie Yacht Club built a clubhouse along the Eau Gallie River.
In 1960, the Eau Gallie Yacht Club moved to its current location in Indian Harbour Beach. The Brevard Historical Commission considered the original clubhouse historical due to the influence of the organization on boating in the region and the architectural significance of the building.
