Top 8 Questions to Ask a Boat Club Before Joining


Well that’s a question we hear regularly, and it’s a smart one for those considering boat club membership.

We suggest meeting 1:1 with the boat club membership executive, touring the facility and checking out the fleet. Get a feel for the people, their level of professionalism, and the facility. Ask for member referrals.

Here are some questions you might ask.

  1. How long has the club been in business and how many active members does it have?
  2. Can you boat at other locations, or only where you join?
  3. How many boats are in the fleet, and how old are they?
  4. What is the boat-to-member ratio?
  5. What is the policy for reserving a boat, and what steps ensure you’ll have a boat when you want and need it?
  6. How do you make reservations?
  7. What type of training is provided?
  8. What type of insurance coverage is provided for members?

Ask to see the insurance summary and certificate of insurance.

These are just a few important topics that will allow you to analyze the options. Good luck in finding the best club for your lifestyle.
