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)
