Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Newburyport, the intelligent and affordable alternative to boat ownership.
We are located at Hilton's Marina (54 Rear Merrimac Street) and our boats are docked directly in front of The Black Cow Restaurant on the Newburyport waterfront. This puts us just 2 miles from the best spot to fish for striped bass in MA and just about a 45 minute boat ride to Sandy Point, Crane Beach, Wingaersheek Beach, Rockport or the Isles of Shoals. The Merrimac River also offers 11 miles of inland boating for the days your are just looking for a relaxing cruise.
Our members enjoy unlimited use of our full fleet at both our Newburyport and Portsmouth locations, as well as reciprocal use at over 100 other North American locations from coast-to-coast. This gives you a number of great boating options locally while also allowing you to explore new waters when you are traveling.
Our members simply call or go online to reserve the boat and the day they want to go boating. When they show up, the boat is warmed up and ready to go. When they return, they simply hand us the keys and walk away! There is no maintenance or repairs to worry about, no insurance payments or storage costs to pay for, and definitely no cleaning. FBC is boating at it's best!
