Join Will Mason and myself, Jay Heidel, as we discuss The Freedom Boat Club as an option to owning a boat yourself. This seems like it could be a great option for some people, especially condo owners who do not usually have a place to keep a boat except to pay for a marina.
For those of you who don't like to watch the whole video, below is an overview of how Freedom Boat Club works.
A Freedom Boating Plan Includes...
- A full membership for you and your spouse
- (or someone in your household over the age of 21).
- Unlimited boat usage at our 28 Tampa Bay locations from
- South Tampa Bay up to the Northern Nature Coast.
- Access to our fleet of 460+ boats, ranging from 20'-24' which includes Deck boats, Pontoons, Zodiac Runabouts, Inshore Center Consoles for flats fishing, and Offshore Center Consoles to get that big grouper.
- Reciprocal access to 190+ Freedom Boat Club locations
- in the U.S., Canada and now even Europe!
- An ever-growing fleet and locations to cruise from, based on our
- 10:1 ratio of members to boat.
- Guaranteed rolling reservations, as well as
- unlimited spur-of-the-moment boating.
- A maintenance-free boating lifestyle.
- Complementary training with our U.S.C.G. licensed instructors. You may also take additional training should you so desire (just pay for fuel).
- Invitations to our area social events and fishing seminars with other FBC members.
Seasonal memberships are also available.
- Agreement is month to month. It's not like a timeshare. You can quit at any time with a 60 day written notice. But you won't want to!
- Per the agreement, your rates are locked in at the current rate for two years.
- You can boat from 8 am until dusk daily.
- Unlimited 7-DAY usage at any of our 28 locations
- Reciprocal Usage at each of the other 190 clubs nationwide
- $500 Deductible "Peace of Mind" plan included (Annually renewable at $300)
