Freedom Boat Club launched the original boat club concept in 1989. As the pioneer of the boat club, it is the undisputed leader in the recreational boat industry, and the oldest and largest boat club organization in North America.
Our first club was located in Sarasota, FL and has grown to a robust network of more than 130 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. When you join our location on Lake Hartwell in Seneca, SC you will enjoy unlimited access to our fleet of boats. One of the most popular membership benefits is the reciprocal access to all of our club locations throughout the North America!
FREEDOM BOAT CLUB boats range from 16 - 29 feet. These boats include well respected national brands and feature inshore and offshore tritoons, pontoons, center consoles, deckboats, and bowriders. All of our fleet boats are well-maintained and three years old or newer. All FREEDOM BOAT CLUB boats are equipped with extremely quiet and highly efficient four-stroke engines. Each boat is fully outfitted with all of United States Coast Guard (U.S.C.G.) required safety equipment. In addition, some of our boats come equipped with a depth finder, fish finder, VHF marine radio, compass, ladder, anchor and bimini top.
Our goal is to ensure that our members feel both comfortable and confident at the helm. As a FREEDOM BOAT CLUB member, you are entitled to receive free, unlimited training by our team of in-house United States Coast Guard captains. We provide personalized 1:1 instruction, including two hours of classroom and two hours of on-the-water instruction. We also offer additional training for our offshore boats and unlimited local orientations at all company operated locations.
Your maintenance-free boating experience begins the moment you arrive at the dock. The Dock Master helps you get your belongings loaded onto the boat. You and your crew head out on the water for a day of boating fun! Upon your return, turn in your keys and simply pay for the fuel used that day, which is expertly tracked by our fuel flow meters. The dock master helps you unload your gear, and then you drive away! No mess, no fuss, no work! Freedom Boat Club’s team handles all of the cleaning and maintenance of the boat and engine, allowing you to spend 100 percent of your time having fun!
Watercraft liability and physical damage is included in your membership. As a FBC member, you are covered up to $1,000,000 for claims made against you by third parties. You are responsible for the $2,500 Watercraft Liability and Physical Damage deductibles per occurrence. FBC-Plus is available as an option for members.
Hours of Operation
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8 am until 5 pm, and then sunrise until sunset on the weekends.
To ensure maximum opportunities for boating, we have a split reservation system on the weekends. On the weekends, one reservation covers the period from sunrise to 1 pm, and the second period runs from 2 pm to sunset. It takes 2 reservations to reserve a whole day on the weekends.
We also allow overnight usage of the boats. Advance authorization is required from the reservationist. A few rules apply. First, the boat must be kept at a dock overnight. Second, there is no driving of the boat at night.
As a FREEDOM BOAT CLUB member, you have direct access to our on-line reservation system. You may book up to four reservations at any given time; only two may be used on the weekend. Once you have used a reservation, you may immediately book another.
In addition to your four advanced reservations, members may take advantage of our unlimited “spur of the moment” boat usage. Members may call the dock master on the day you want to boat and if a boat is available, you may have it for the entire day. These boats are available on a first-come first serve basis.
In addition to being the nation’s premiere boat club, FREEDOM BOAT CLUB is also a social club. About once a month, we host local dock parties at the marina. These events offer a great opportunity to meet other members and make new friends who share your passion for boating! Our members share tips about local fishing hotspots, swimming holes, and restaurants! We created a Buddy Program to help connect members who would love to hook up with others for boating, fishing and watersports activities.
Our social events rotate to different locations, ranging from dock parties at the marina to restaurants and other popular area attractions. Members have attended sporting events together, toured cool attractions, taken party boat cruises, participated in recreational activities … and more!
Freedom Boat Club offers several affordable and flexible membership programs and options. Choose from year-round and weekday to best suit your budget and lifestyle.
FREEDOM BOAT CLUB offers 2 membership options:
The Freedom Boating Plan has a one-time entry fee of $6,400 and additional fixed monthly payments of $319 per month.
If you are only interested in boating on weekdays, the Weekday Boating Plan allows you to boat year round Monday through Friday. The one-time entry fee is $6,400 and additional fixed monthly payments of $279.
With all of the Freedom Boating Plans your monthly payments are guaranteed to remain fixed for as long as you remain a member in good standing. In addition, you may cancel your membership at any time by providing FBC with a 60 day notice in writing... but you won’t want too!
