Carefree Boat Club strives to provide our customers with an affordable boating experience that is fun, easy, safe and hassle free through professional boat safety training, quality maintenance, excellent customer service, and unsurpassed industry knowledge.
Members also get to enjoy boating from all of the Carefree Boat Clubs in the Network, not just your “home” club. Members have access to all nationwide locations on the east coast and south coast from Maryland to Florida and Texas with more locations being added every season.
Our members have exclusive access to hundreds of boats at some of the country’s premier boating locations. Whenever you go your boat will already be waiting for you.
Carefree Boat Club was founded in Virginia in 2002. Since then Carefree Boat Club has become the premier boat club operator in the US and Canada and we are continuing to grow. Everything we do is based on operating at the highest standards in the industry.
Our membership ratios are strictly maintained (ten members for every one boat), as are the quality and upkeep of our boats. Our goal is to provide our members with the highest quality boating experience, to provide a safe and easy intro into boating for new boaters and to offer the best variety of boats and ports possible.
Our ultimate goal is to make boating fun, easy and affordable.
With membership as little as 1/3 cost of owning a boat, you can cross these expenses off your list: boat purchase, slip fee, insurance, maintenance, repairs, taxes, towing and winterization.
Use the boats as often as you would like with no additional cost.
Our online reservation system allows you to pick the day, time, boat and Carefree location…easily.
Varieties include 20′-30′ Cruiser, Deck, Bowrider, Pontoon, Fishing, Ski Boats & more! Members have options in both type of boat and type of activity!
With low member to boat ratios, an easy to use online reservation system & spur of the moment walk-on access members can enjoy boating how they like when they like.
Members have access to all US and Canada locations. Experience the member benefit of Reciprocity at any of our clubs, from sea to shining sea!
Instructors at each location provide Boat Safety training and handling skills so our members can comfortably and safely enjoy the great variety of boats for all activities.
“My wife and I used to own a boat but found that we spent more time repairing it than enjoying it with our family and friends! It was always repainting this or fixing that. As we got older, towing and launching the boat became a hassle to where we didn’t enjoy boating anymore. So we got rid of it. But thanks to Carefree Boat Club, we got the lifestyle we wanted back into our lives. Carefree makes boating fun again!! Period.”
“My husband told me he had something special planned for our anniversary….and boy did he! I had no idea how special. My husband did the planning…Carefree Boat Club did all the work. It was spectacular, from the service, to the boat, to our own special little cruise. Thank you, Carefree, for giving us lasting and exciting memories of our special night. Take pointers men out there! You will get what you want if you give us what we want! Little did I know that Carefree Boat Club is really a woman’s best friend!”
“My husband and I wanted to do something different with our kids…not another day at home, standing in line at the amusement park or just lying on the beach. I am a stay at home Mom and needed to get out of the house with my kids. We called Carefree and they did the rest. What a fun and relaxing day on a beautiful boat. We swam, snorkeled and even laughed a time or two. Our kids not only didn’t miss their computers or cell phones, they’re asking us, When can we do it again?”
“I sincerely appreciate you guys being so diligent on the up-front assessment and training of new members. It’s an attention-to-detail that you don’t have to have, and that you probably don’t find in other similar organizations. As a new member, I appreciate it.”
“I truly appreciate your time today…it was DEFINITELY TIME WELL SPENT FOR ME!! I picked up many great tips that I know will add to my overall safety and pleasure while utilizing my membership privileges.”
