Answers to all your questions

Freedom Boat Club has been in business since 1989. We’re the world’s largest and oldest members-only boat club and we’re expanding rapidly.

Our reservation system ensures that all members have equal access to the boats, plus members can make guaranteed reservations up to six months in advance.

No, you will never have usage charges. Your only additional cost is for the fuel that you use and any damage you may cause.

Boat usage is unlimited at your home location.

Reserving a boat has never been easier. Simply log in to your reservation dashboard and choose your desired date, vessel, and time slot.

We maintain a variety of boats ranging from open boats to cabin cruisers. Each market chooses its own fleet based on the needs and demands there. Feel free to browse through the individual club location pages on the website to view their fleet.

You have access to a fleet of boats. This means you can choose one boat or another depending on your plans for the day: cruising, fishing, towing…

We take care of all the maintenance with engine services and repairs undertaken by qualified marine technicians. Each boat is cleaned and inspected by the dock staff before you arrive.

We take care of fuelling, so your boat will always be fuelled up and ready to go.

As long as a member is present, you can bring friends, family, guests, children, colleagues, or even your favorite pet up to the capacity of the boat.

Membership is open to boaters of any skill level, 21 years of age and older. Whether you’ve never boated before, or you’ve boated for years, Freedom Boat Club welcomes you as a member.

Yes. You will be able to book a boat from any of our locations around the world as you would in your own country. You just need to get the appropriate certification and bring it with you.

Freedom Boat Club is a major proponent of boater education and safety. Each and every one of our Clubs provide FREE training to our local members regarding the safe use and operation of your ‘home club’ fleet. This generally includes classroom and on-water training activities. Members must complete this training course before they can start reserving boats.

Never. This is a private fleet. We do not rent any of the boats in our fleet. This allows us to better maintain the condition of our boats and ensures the highest possible level of fleet availability to our members.

All boats have required equipment (per country guidance) including life jackets, a fire extinguisher, sound equipment, and flares. Boats are checked for this equipment by both the dock staff and member prior to departure.

Yes, all our boats are fully insured. For small damages, we aim to repair in-house to keep the cost low.

At Freedom Boat Club across the world, we all have one thing in common. We are all passionate about life around the water, and we love to celebrate it! As a member you will be able to meet other members and spend good times together at social events such as evening social boating, guided trips, you name it! Learn about and share your passion!
