Freedom Boat Club Opens Second Ft. Myers Location

VENICE, FL – Freedom Boat Club, the world’s oldest and largest boat club with 10,000+ members in 19 states, has recently opened a second corporate-owned club in Ft. Myers at 14070 McGregor Blvd, situated within the MarineMax marina. A grand opening celebration is slated for Thursday, January 21 from 4-7 pm, and is free and open to those in the community with an active interest in boating.

“The demand for our boating club in the Ft. Myers area has grown tremendously this past year, leading to the expansion of this new club location to complement our very successful venue at Salty Sam’s Marina at Ft. Myers Beach,” said John Giglio, President and CEO of Freedom Boat Club. “We are pleased to provide additional boats and enhanced opportunities for boaters in the greater Ft. Myers marketplace. We just really appreciate the warm welcome reception we have enjoyed here, and look forward to continued growth in the future.”

The grand opening festivities will feature free boat rides aboard a fleet of new Freedom Boat Club vessels including popular bowriders, deckboats, center consoles and pontoons. The event will also feature live music, hourly drawings for nautical-themed gift packs, plus complimentary beverages and snacks. Members of the Freedom Boat Club corporate team will be on hand to welcome guests and introduce the club, along with corporate-employed licensed Coast Guard captains who manage the company’s in-house training program.

“We welcome all those with an active interest in boating to come join us for this grand opening celebration,” said Giglio. “We are especially pleased to work cooperatively with MarineMax General Manager Ryan West and his team as we jointly promote boating and seek to service the needs and desires of boaters in the area.”
