The transformation is complete: the former Green Pond Tackle and Marina at the corner of Menauhant and Acapesket Road in East Falmouth is now officially the Green Pond Yacht Club.

The members-only club is the brainchild of Falmouth native Harry Turner, who bought the property back in 2000. Last fall, Turner—who spent much of the last decade installing new docks, constructing a mechanic’s garage and expanding the tackle and seafood operations—got the idea to transform the property into a yacht club, according to General Manager Kristin Boon.

Turner got the go-ahead from the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals back in December to begin construction, and the club’s liquor license was in January.

The newly renovated clubhouse features a full-service dining room and deck overlooking the marina, along with an Admirals Loft for upper-level members and a classroom for sailing and boating instruction.
