The Paynesville Motor Cruiser Club was formed in August 1980. An approach was made to the Bairnsdale Shire in the early eighties with a view to establishing a club house in the vicinity of the prsent clubhouse overlooking McMillan Strait and Shire reps were brought around by boat to view thearea.    

In July 1989 Council consent was sought for a multi-use facility in the Slip Bight Marina in conjunction with the berth owners. 

A preliminary meeting was held with the Shire in September 1990, at which the club re-affirmed its desire to share a multi-use facility in the Slip Bight Marina complex.

During 1991 the first draft plan was produced. Negotiations were held with the Shire, the Dept of Planning and The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and adjustments were made to the plans.

In Sept 1992 the Coastal Management and co-ordinating committee approved the project and set conditions. In July 1993 the building of the present clubhouse was commenced.

The club house opened for trading on April 1st 1994, and was officially opened on 13th June, 1994.
