February 17, 2020

  • Reciprocal access to 190+ Freedom Boat Club locations
  • in the U.S., Canada and now even Europe!

  • unlimited spur-of-the-moment boating.
  • A maintenance-free boating lifestyle.

  • Freedom 4 (4 Active Rolling Reservations)
  • Our most popular plan for weekday and weekend users
  • Freedom 6 (6 Active Rolling Reservations)
  • Our Luxury Plan allows for more reservations
Seasonal Membership: (Great for Snow Birds)
