"The boat club is great for entertaining friends and clients whether join off shore fishing or enjoying the day at Crab Island. the convenience to be able to show up, get on, come back, gas up, and go home is priceless. The Shalimar location is great for my family living in Fort Walton Beach and cannot wait to try some of the other 61 locations nationwide. Thanks to the professional staff and system in place we have never had a problem being able to reserve a boats. Brian your team rocks!" - Blake and Susan Cosabiel


After working on closing up our summer home up North, my wife and I are exhausted and we haven't yet finished our work as we boat on a river that freezes so we have to pull the dock made from an old pontoon boat. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that we sing the praises of the Freedom Boat Club. I almost forgot another fact, we reserved a pontoon boat at a marina in Pawley's Island and it was an equally fantastic experience for what we have had in the Panhandle. I didn't have to trailer my pontoon boat for twenty hours.


We have really enjoyed this club! Great staff and boats!

For over 30 years we have owned our own boat and when my wife and I relocated to the Gulf Coast we both assumed we would continue to do so. However, that was before we heard about the Freedom Boat Club. The idea of never trailering, storing, maintaining, or insuring a boat again became increasingly attractive. With the Club, we now have the ability to boat out of numerous locations with a selection of boats that doesn't come with ownership. To say that we're not thrilled with our choice and the employees that operate Freedom Boat Club would be an understatement!

I have been a member for about a year now and love it. Easy to use and great people to deal with.

Freedom Boat Club is the best for me and my family! Love the experience and the people. We have a hectic life and an even more hectic schedule. I wanted to take advantage of all the great stuff that comes with the Gulf Coast but did not want the hassle of boat ownership. With FBC, I can boat when I want without having the hassle of hauling the boat, launching the boat, or trailering the boat -- not to mention mainting the boat, cleaning the boat, seasonal maintenance, or storing the boat. I got all the benefits with none of the hassle!

We are starting our second season with FBC and so far, we have enjoyed boats in Fort Walton Beach, Orange Beach, Destin, Tampa, and Austin. I reserved boats and simply walked up, signed for the boat, and enjoyed a day on the water. It could not have been simpler! The local staff made it incredibly easy to schedule and really took care of us. Every time we travel I look for time in the schedule then look to see if there is a FBC nearby.

I would (and have!) recommend FBC to all my friends. It is the best option for me and my family.
