“This summer I was out on a friend’s boat and remembered how much I love being out on the water. So I started to ask my friends about buying a boat, and what they said is, “the two best days are when you buy your boat, and when you sell it.” Needless to say, I heeded their warning and started researching alternate ways to get on the water.
I typed into Google “Boat Clubs” and Carefree Boat Club came right up. I read the website and thought it was way too good to be true. But I figured, what the heck, let’s reach out to them.
Paul answered the phone and I’ll never forget, he pulled over on the side of the road to speak with me and answer all my questions. He didn’t rush me and was extremely personable.
He followed up with me as promised sending me all the details for the boat club, the training and references (I was not an easy sale). I hemmed and hawed and even had a friend who is a lawyer review the contract because, again, I kept thinking, this is just too good to be true.
A few weeks later (see above about not being an easy sale), I finally signed the contract and a few weeks into being a member of the Carefree Boat Club, I can honestly say, it really is too good to be true…it’s FANTASTIC.
My husband and I spent a Saturday morning with Roland doing our on the water training. He was patient, helpful, informative and never made me feel like a beginner. He let me practice docking more than a dozen times, always with me promising it was going to be my last try…and then asking if I could try once more.
Since then, I’ve taken 4 different boats out so far and everything has been seamless from start to finish. The reservation system is easy. My in-laws stopped by one day on a surprise visit and after we told them about the club they wanted to go for a boat ride. I called Robert and he was able to get us on the water that afternoon. Robert at the docks is very friendly and so helpful…especially with docking since that is something I am still learning…but practice makes perfect and the staff is ALWAYS beyond willing and able to help/teach.
I can’t say enough amazing things about Carefree Boat Club and I’m sure there are so many other people who I have yet to meet who help make Carefree so easy and carefree. Best decision I ever made was to join this club.
I can’t wait to go boating this winter down in Florida!”
