Portsmouth, NH

Welcome to the Freedom Boat Club of Portsmouth, the intelligent and affordable alternative to boat ownership!

We operate out of our private facilities (clubhouse and docks) located on Sagamore Creek, just upstream from BG's Boathouse and the Wentworth Marina.

Our members enjoy unlimited use of our full fleet at both our Portsmouth and Newburyport locations, as well as reciprocal use to 68 other U.S. locations spanning 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!

Be sure to watch the "See how the Club works" video for more details.  You can also stay up to date with Freedom Boat Club by "liking" our Facebook page and through our blog.

Prescott Park

Stretching along the Piscataqua River from lower State Street to Mechanic Street are over ten acres of flower gardens, walkways, seating, docking and grass areas all designed for public use and recreation. In the summer a "trial garden" is planted with over 500 flower varieties. There is a "formal garden" featuring trees and the sense of a park-within-a-park. In addition there are fountains, tree lined walkways, a flower wall and a separate rose garden for the public to view. Also, during the summer months, Prescott Park plays hosts to a juried art show co-sponsored with the New Hampshire Art Association, and the Prescott park Arts Festival. The Arts Festival combines a series of musical performances and full-length plays performed "alfresco" and under the stars.

While the park is an ideal location for seaside outdoor recreation, the property is also renowned for its diverse natural history. Seven distinct natural habitats can be visited in a leisurely hour's walk. Although the spectacular rocky shore is the most Odiorne Point State Park popular, the woodlands, uplands, salt marsh, freshwater and salt ponds, and sandy beach combine to create one of the region's most diverse nature walks.

Picnickers can enjoy sweeping views of the ocean and rocky shore, and explorers can uncover evidence of past military occupation. The Seacoast Science Center which is located in the park has exhibits relating to the natural and human history of Odiorne and the seacoast area.

The structure was built in 1879 by the US Congress. The 41 foot tower is built of brick and sheathed in an iron shell. The island contains a boat house, an oil/generator house, a work shop, and a two-story keeper's house and supplies were sent across from the mainland on a cable. The last keep left the now-automated lighthouse in 1989. Each year in December and July the buildings are strung with white lights for a special ceremony, best viewed for Sohier Park in York.
