What Our Customers Like You Say they Love About Carefree Boat Club

- Matthew B.

“My wife and I used to own a boat but found that we spent more time repairing it than enjoying it with our family and friends! It was always repainting this or fixing that. As we got older, towing and launching the boat became a hassle to where we didn’t enjoy boating anymore. So we got rid of it. But thanks to Carefree Boat Club, we got the lifestyle we wanted back into our lives. Carefree makes boating fun again!! Period.”

- Mary L.

“My husband told me he had something special planned for our anniversary….and boy did he! I had no idea how special. My husband did the planning...Carefree Boat Club did all the work. It was spectacular, from the service, to the boat, to our own special little cruise. Thank you, Carefree, for giving us lasting and exciting memories of our special night. Take pointers men out there! You will get what you want if you give us what we want! Little did I know that Carefree Boat Club is really a woman’s best friend!”

- Elizabeth S.

“My husband and I wanted to do something different with our kids…not another day at home, standing in line at the amusement park or just lying on the beach. I am a stay at home Mom and needed to get out of the house with my kids. We called Carefree and they did the rest. What a fun and relaxing day on a beautiful boat. We swam, snorkeled and even laughed a time or two. Our kids not only didn’t miss their computers or cell phones, they’re asking us, When can we do it again?”

A Few More Happy Members...

“We love the variety of boats and the fact that they're all in such great condition compared to the other clubs we looked at. It's crazy how much use we have gotten out of the boats all year round. I'm not going to lie, I love not having to worry about boat maintenance and cleaning and moorage.”

- Amy S.

“Our boating experience has been BETTER than advertised. The dock-staff has been great and the availability of boats outstanding. You just can't beat the variety and ease of being able to check boats out and return them without the associated hassles of owning. Would highly recommend.”

- Steve M.
