Freedom Boat Club
10 Crawford Parkway • 757 615-3783
Freedom Boat Club was first founded in 1989 in Sarasota, FL. It is the oldest and largest boat club in the nation. The vision in establishing this model is to provide an affordable option to boat ownership and to deliver a hassle-free recreational boating experience for its members.
While most boat clubs are either regionally-based or smaller “mom and pop” locations, Freedom Boat Club has 2,000+ late model boats from coast to coast, with 165+ franchise and corporate club locations throughout the United States and Canada. Members who join Freedom Boat Club on a year-round basis enjoy reciprocal access and can boat anywhere Freedom Boat Clubs are located. This is one of the most valued features of membership.
In addition, Freedom Boat Club provides a mix of both on-water and classroom boat training for every new member, taught on a 1:1 basis by Coast Guard licensed instructors who know the local waterways.
Freedom Boat Clubs all operate with a 1-time entry fee and monthly dues. Members have unlimited access to the club fleet, but do not own them and never incur any service or storage fees. Reservations are made through a proprietary online system.
