The Union Boat Club is the longest continuously operated rowing club in Boston. It began in 1851 and in addition to rowing, offers other gentlemanly sports such as squash and fives for its members. Often confused with its neighbor the Community Boating Club, the Union Boat Club is actually a private organization. It has been active at its current location within the Esplande since the early 1930s. The Union Boat Club currently boasts approximately seven hundred members.

Information on membership to the Union Boat Club is available on their website.
