Savusavu is a yachting haven and cruising boat Immigration “clearance” location in Fiji. The large reef buffered bay of Savusavu and the island and reef protected safe harbour moorings near the Savusavu Yacht Club provide our local and visiting yachts a secure mooring in any weather. There are numerous docks with power and water for those who desire that comfortable convenience.
The international scene with both the interesting mix of members of the Savusavu Yacht club and its visitors from around the world give the Club an atmosphere of diverse cultures and endless appeal as everyday new people come in to partake of the ambiance, the excellent meals at the Captains Table and the low cost libations at the waterfront bar.
The Savusavu Yacht Club resides in the old Copra Shed Marina that was built in the 19th century which is a major landmark in Savusavu. Renovated in recent years it shows this history in historical photographs depicting the ‘Sheds’ past, adorn the walls of the building.
The yachtie hangout during boating season, the 20-year-old Savusavu Yacht Club in the Copra Shed on the marina has an old-school feel. The open-air bar and deck overlook the moorings. Entertainment includes a "Chicken Draw," in which patrons buy raffle tickets to win roast birds, and a Joker Draw for the accumulated pot of money. Happy hour is announced by the ringing of a bell with a seaman's rope. Sailing trophies and the names of board members immortalized on wooden plaques look down on a mixed crowd of locals and visitors as they knock back Fiji Bitter and Corona and, if they're not sailing the next day, maybe even shots.
