3. Boating Without Owning

Ready to start creating your own boating adventure story but don’t want to take on all the costs and maintenance that comes with owning your own boat? Here are some reasons joining our powerboating club might be a good fit for you.

Boat clubs have been around for about 25 years and were born out of the realization that most boats spend the vast majority of their time sitting unused at a dock. With a boat club, you buy a membership into the club (paying somewhere between $1,000 to $5,000) and pay monthly fees of $150 to $500 to buy “unlimited” use in blocks of time for several kinds of boats, such as pontoon, fishing boats, or runabouts. The blocks are usually for four or eight hours at a time and can sometimes be combined in multiples of two, but overnights are often restricted. The fees cover nearly everything: the purchase of the boat, slip fees, insurance, repairs, maintenance. Members simply pay for gas and any deductible that applies if the boat is damaged. Most clubs have a ratio of 10 to 12 members per boat, and in theory, you can use the boats all you want, subject to prior reservations.

The Good News:

  • Boats are replaced with new ones regularly.
  • Insurance and towing coverage is usually included.
  • Some clubs have multiple locations where boats can be reserved across the country.
  • Some clubs allow you to book an available boat on the same day, and not count it toward your contracted number of uses in that period.
