The Lake Norman, N.C., located at the WaterStreet Seaport Marina in Cornelius is an award winning franchise of Freedom Boat Club.

“Freedom Boat Club Lake Norman has succeeded on many levels,” said John Giglio, CEO of FBC when presenting the Franchise of the Year award to owners Perry Weir and son, Jeff Weir. “We are thrilled to have this location as part of our expanding network. Lake Norman has not only exceeded expectations for memberships sold but also received high grades for customer service, community involvement and faithful adherence to our FBC model of excellence.”

The Freedom Boat Club, which began in 1989 in Sarasota, has experienced a steady growth in membership and franchise locations based on its model of offering affordable, hassle-free boating. Members not only have a choice of multiple boats at each location but avoid the typical frustrations associated with boat ownership: maintenance, repair, storage, cleaning, towing trailers, etc.

“We know this is a winning concept,” Jeff Weir said. “People love boating but not necessarily all the expensive, time-consuming chores that go along with it. Being a member of Freedom Boat Club means leaving the hassles to us.

“We believe the key to our success has been customer satisfaction. We will do everything in our power to create the perfect day on the lake for our members. We know that was a big factor in our being named 2013 Rookie of the Year, 2014 Franchise of the Year, and 2015 Pacesetter Club. We feel honored.”
