Welcome to Carefree Boat Club! Thank you for choosing to visit our site and learn more about boating the carefree way. Carefree Boat Club is your alternative to buying or renting a boat.
Carefree Boat Club strives to provide our customers an affordable boating experience that is fun, easy, safe and hassle-free through professional boat safety training, quality maintenance, excellent customer service, and unsurpassed industry knowledge.
Buying a boat is a big investment. If you are unsure of the size and type of boat you would be happy with, find out what Carefree Boat Club has to offer. Our membership plans grant you unlimited usage of not just one boat, but a variety of sizes and types of boats. Go fishing one day, schedule a “working” lunch on a 13 passenger bowrider the next, party on the pontoon, take a wake tower boat tubing on your next outing, take the whole family on a luxury cruise the day after or sail into the sunset off the shores of Lake Michigan!
If you are new to boating or an experienced boater our club offers an affordable alternative to get you started or back into boating. Worried about access? We have excellent access ratios that are in-writing to ensure availability to our members. Find out more by scheduling a tour at our location, and see first-hand what it means to boat the Carefree way!
If you are looking to rent a boat, we can show you how you can have access to boats all across the country for one low membership price! Imagine your next vacation to Miami, Los Angeles, Charleston, Virginia Beach, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle and many more! A boat will be waiting for you at no extra charge!
Not going on a vacation soon? Use the boats at your home location as many times as you want! There is no limit! Weekends, weekdays, holidays- it’s all included with your membership.
Carefree Boat Club allows its members to focus on having fun because we have built safety into our operation. All of our boats are inspected annually by the United States Coast Guard. Additionally, we ensure you have the adequate safety equipment on board before you depart for your adventure. Finally, since we are a premium boat club, we keep larger boats in our fleet for safety reasons. Ten people on a small boat is more dangerous than ten people on a larger boat. This simply comes down to maneuverability and weight distribution. Ultimately, the safety of all on board rests with the operator, but Carefree Boat Club minimizes the risk from the beginning with our classroom and on-the-water training. We want you to truly have a carefree boating experience!
