Orange Beach
Orange Beach, AL

Welcome to Freedom Boat Club of Orange Beach:  

Entertaining, Picturesque & Jewel-toned

 

The powder-sand beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast have long been a favorite vacation destination for America's heartland. Like other popular beaches in the central Gulf region, Orange Beach has ranks of oceanfront condos backed by plenty of shoes-optional eateries and diversions ranging from alligator farms and go-cart tracks to championship golf courses and one of the South's largest outlet malls. What sets this particular beach berg apart is not the sand strand, but the surrounding waterways.

 

At some point, visiting boaters are likely to find the nearby Gulf Intracoastal Waterway and convey either eastward to Pensacola — home of the National Museum of Naval Aviation — or westward to Mobile, with a waterfront of historic forts, the USS Alabama, and bird-watching and beachcombing at the wildlife sanctuary on Dauphine Island. Closer to home base in Orange Beach, boaters will find numerous waterfront watering holes, 14 marinas and a waterfront resort complex known as The Wharf, which encompasses shopping venues, restaurants, hotel rooms and a marina.

 

Fishing is big business, with many of the area's 14 marinas lined with rows of gleaming sport-fishing yachts; some can be chartered for forays into the deep blue for tries at trophy catches of marlin or tuna. Nearer shore, small-boat anglers can try for snapper, mackerel, grouper and dolphin, or keep to the inside for trout and redfish. It makes bass fishing on inland lakes seem like small pickins.

 

We Are Now Offering Hands-On Powerboat Training

Freedom Boat club in partnership with the Recreational Power Boat Association (RPBA) are offering hands on boat training.  This is a great way to improve you skills and confidence on the water. We can teach on our boats or yours.

 

Power Boating Made Easy (4 hours)

The goal of Power Boating Made Easy is to increase boating safety and enjoyment by improving boaters’ nautical knowledge, practical skills and confidence. This program is taught by RPBA certified instructors. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will have learned the information and skills required to safely operate a powerboat in local, waters during daylight hours in good  conditions.   This class is great for new boaters. 

 

Advanced Docking and Close Quarter Powerboat Handling (6 hours)

If you have been boating for a while and want to improve your skills, this is an outstanding opportunity.  RPBA certified instructors will teach the precision boat handling skills required to operate in close quarters and strong winds and currents.

 

 

Sell, Trade or Lease your Boat to us & Let us maintain and pay for it!

To determine if your boat fits the club's requirements please call our membership director and ask about our Trade-In Program. We are looking for newer model boats to increase our fleet.

Lipscomb ____________________________________________________________ PROPERTY MANAGEMENT We offer professional and comprehensive property management services for many types of properties. We address issues promptly and implement effective solutions to insure the integrity of your property and peace of mind of your renters and tenants. We have found that the simplest way to manage a property is to set a flat monthly price to manage it. When we establish the flat rate based on services provided the property owner knows exactly what to expect. This simple approach allows the property owner to receive 100% of the rental income that is collected. It is in everybody s best interest to rent a property. However if a management company must to rent a property to earn income often times risky renters and damage are the result. Our approach always places the property owner and their property at the highest level of importance. PROPERTY MANAGEMENT TESTIMONIALS The principal Partner of Coastal Rental Group has managed my Orange Beach Condominium for almost 10 years. I can t imagine a better property management company. ~D. Hall Coastal Rental Group manages two of my properties. Their 24/7 availability, professionalism and follow up are second to none. ~D. Mosing Coastal Rental Group has only managed my property for 120 days. I am astonished at how much rental income Coastal Rental Group has provided to me. I am actually making a profit on my waterfront condo in Orange Beach. ~W. Cherry

About Freedom Boat Club Gulf Coast


Cam

Freedom Boat Club is great!  We have been members for 2 years here in Orange Beach and really enjoy getting out on the water.  The staff is pleasant, flexible, and there when you need them.  For us, a family of 5, we have enjoyed fishing, boating to the islands, visiting restaurants by water and cruising around the back bays.  This year, we hope to venture offshore and catch some really big fish.  This is what life in Orange Beach is all about! 

Cameron, Cam, Malia, Dorian & Kai

There were many doubters and skeptics when Freedom Boat Club was formed 25 years ago.      The boating-club concept was a visionary innovation, curious novelty and bold gamble all rolled into one.

The most enjoyable days out on the water always require a little preparation. An otherwise perfect day of boating can be quickly short-circuited if you didn’t bring enough food, beverages, or ice. Virtually all recreational boaters are familiar with that punched-in-the-gut feeling of being out on the water and realizing they forgot something essential. Of course, some forgotten...
