Welcome to Freedom Boat Club – Boating Made Simple! Established in 1989 in Sarasota, Florida, we are the largest members-only boat club in the world. Members enjoy unlimited boating within their Home Club as well as reciprocal access across hundreds of locations in the United States, Canada, and Europe. And with a diverse fleet of boats available, we’ll have the right boat to match your desired adventure.
So, join the Club and grab your friends, your family, your fishing buddy, or your work colleagues and come explore the open waters with Freedom Boat Club!
Independently owned and operated by Freedom Boat Club on Lake Chatuge
Just pay a one-time entry fee and select one of our membership plans. Your local Club will have a variety of plans to match your recreational boating needs.
Your safety is our No. 1 concern. So we give all our members unlimited training with certified captains. And if you wish to boat in a new location, they’ll show you the waterways.
Awesome way of getting on the water without the hassles! I have owned a boat for 3 years and I wish I have known freedom boat club earlier!
The Club has been great for us. Lots of fun times with friends and family. I'm looking forward to having a great summer with all the different boats!
