(Buffalo, NY)

Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Buffalo!

Buffalonians are having more fun on our expansive shoreline than at any other time in history.  With hundreds of millions of dollars invested in the Inner and Outer harbor, Buffalo's waterfront is truly the "center of fun" for Western New York!

From our home at Safe Harbor Marina, Freedom Boat Club members can head to Lake Erie for some nationally renowned fishing, tubing and waterskiing, or a leisurely cruise.  If the chop builds in the lake, no worries.  The Buffalo waterfront is protected by a 5 mile break-wall providing easy access to the protected waters of the Upper Niagara River and the Buffalo River. Boat accessible restaurants and activities from Canalside to the Riverworks Development, and the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park along the Buffalo River will provide lasting memories for you and your crew.

When the day comes to a close, Buffalo is among the few cities in the Eastern United States that enjoys spectacular sunsets over the water. One of the best spots for your Lake Erie sunset is at the Safe Harbor Marina on the boat or the patio of Charlie's Boatyard. 

Freedom Boat Club of Buffalo offers one of the easiest ways to enjoy boating!  Imagine arriving at the Marina, greeted by FBC dock staff who help you load your gear on one of our late model center console or recreational boats and quickly get you on your way.  When you return, FBC Dock staff will help you tie up, check you in and you are on your way to the next activity.  With Freedom Boat Club, 100% of your time is spent enjoying the water.  You don't have any of the hassles of owning a boat like paying for depreciation, insurance and docking fees, or dealing with maintenance and winter storage. 

The icing on the Freedom Boat Club cake is reciprocal access to 2000 boats at 170 clubs across the US and Canada!  If you are a snowbird and head to Florida during the winter, there are more than 40 FBC clubs for you to make reservations and enjoy the Florida coastal waters. Click on the locations tab and chances are good you will find a reciprocal club where you travel.

The boat is waiting. Why are you? Join Freedom Boat Club of Buffalo and experience the smart alternative to boat ownership or renting!  You can learn more by emailing or calling Paul Cannon today.
