Freedom Boat Club Achieves Major Franchise and National Fleet Milestones

Freedom Boat Club

Description

January 26, 2016, VENICE, Fla.–(FranchisePOD.com)–Freedom Boat Club, the nation’s largest and oldest boat club with 10,000+ members now in 20 states, has just reached the 100-club summit and expanded its nationwide fleet to include 1000 boats.

The newest franchise operations to recently join the fast-rising club include Freedom Boat Club of Lake George, NY; Freedom Boat Club of Buffalo, NY; Freedom Boat Club of the Ponconos in Lake Wallenpaupack, PA; Freedom Boat Club of Lake St. Clair in Detroit, MI; and Freedom Boat Club of Nashville (2 locations) and Freedom Boat Club of Chattanooga. In addition, consumer demand led to the official grand opening of a second new corporate-owned club in Ft. Myers, FL last week.

“This milestone represents a significant achievement in the history of Freedom Boat Club,” said President and CEO John Giglio. “The doubling in size of our clubs over the past three years is a clear indicator and benchmark of both the success and viability of the boating club concept. In today’s shared economy with a focus on collaborative consumption, the opportunity to enjoy the boating lifestyle through affordable club membership continues to grow and gain traction.”

Freedom Boat Club’s private boat club model – which provides reciprocal access to 1000 late model boats nationwide – offers a simple alternative to boat ownership. The club’s flexible membership plans, expansive fleet of quality boats, free instruction by licensed Coast Guard captains, and robust social events calendar attracts a mix of newcomers and seasoned boaters alike who opt for the convenience, cost savings and camaraderie that club membership offers.

“We have reached our short-term goals and are focused on continued controlled growth, with plans to fill select open domestic markets while exploring exciting new international opportunities,” said Giglio, who purchased the club in 2012.

Freedom Boat Club was named to the Entrepreneur Magazine Franchise 500® list three of the past five years, reaching #283 in 2015.
