Welcome to Carefree Boat Club! We’re a new alternative to buying or renting a boat in Seattle. With a membership to our exclusive club, you don’t have to worry about maintenance, trailering, moorage, usage fees, insurance, or even cleaning. You have unlimited access to not just one boat but our entire fleet of boats, from five local marinas plus 70+ clubs nationwide, and free on the water safety training is also included with our USCG certified captains. Our mission at Carefree Boat Club is simple – to revolutionize the way Seattlites can access and enjoy our beautiful waters.
The Top 5 Advantages of Carefree Boat Club:
1. Best Boat Availability
Why join a boat club if you can never get a boat? Boat availability is among our top priorities at Carefree. We have the best availability and lowest member to boat ratio in the industry and we're happy to show you our actual reservation system anytime you'd like. Come see for yourself!
2. 20+ Luxury Brand Boats
We've built our fleet with some of the most high end boat brands in the world, from well respected manufacturers such as Chaparral, Sea Ray, Robalo, and Manitou, to name a few. Check out our fleet page to see the most up to date inventory at each of our 5 local locations.
3. Various Boat Sizes Including Overnighters
Smaller boats (under 23') are great to learn on. While Carefree offers ample smaller boats for our newer members to practice on, most members soon prefer the more comfortable, safer, and drier ride provided by boats 24' or bigger. Half of Carefree's fleet is 24' or bigger, many with enclosed heads (private bathrooms).
When you're ready for overnight adventures step up to our Platinum Club (reserved for boats retailing at over $100,000) and head out on one of our three 27' cabin cruisers with refrigerators, microwaves, hot showers, and sleeping for four.
4. New Boats
Carefree Boat Club Seattle works closely with many dealers year round to buy and sell boats, and is a sister company of a local boat dealer. This allows our members to always enjoy the latest and greatest, including hard to find special order boats and dealer demos not normally found in boat clubs. At the moment, about half of our 20+ boat fleet are 2018 models, and the majority are less than three years old. We're constantly upgrading our fleet with new boats throughout the year.
5. Award Winning Customer Service
Carefree boat club Seattle has won multiple awards each year since our inception. The mission and drive of our valet dock staff is to delight our members at each of our 5 local locations - Lake Washington (Bellevue and Kirkland), Lake Union, Puget Sound, and the San Juan Islands. Our whole team is dedicated to member experience and providing value beyond simply facilitating your time on the water. Our member socials for example are a great way to network with fellow club members.
Even with all these advantages, Carefree Boat Club has a surprisingly competitive price. Members pay a low one time joining fee and then monthly dues, with the vast majority of our members paying $399 a month or less. We can customize this number up or down to work within your budget and boating goals.
Give us a call to schedule a no pressure tour of our fleet, see the reservation system, and find the right membership plan for you and your family. Or use the form to request more information. We look forward to meeting you and showing you Seattle's premier membership boating experience.
