We joined FBC approx 1 year ago, just after we sold our ‘baby’ of 25 years {35′ Wauquiez Pretorian sailboat}.  Keith Lemley, Venice FL location, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable as he explained the program to us…he worked hard to determine a schedule that could work for us {semi-retired}, and the rest is history.
We have thoroughly enjoyed the club to date!!  There are numerous boat types to choose from i.e. offshore, inshore, sail, deck etc;  The boats are extremely clean and in good working order;  The reservation system is incredibly easy to use, even for technically challenged individuals such as ourselves;  The staff at Venice FBC is most cordial and does their best to satisfy our requests; The dock masters are pleasant and help with the loading/off loading of gear, as well as any other issues that might arise; The club socials are a super way to meet other boaters and the special seminars offered are very informative.
We have now determined that FBC’s boating concept is the only way to “own” a boat…we personally translate FBC to “freedom from boat work”!!
We have recommended the program to all of our boating friends as they are also finding that keeping up with the maintenance, marina fees etc has become far too difficult.  Thank you for offering such an easy and enjoyable way of boating!!
