Why you'll love being a Carefree Boat Club Member:
1. Boat Availability
Why join a boat club if you can't boat when you want? 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 reservation system anytime you'd like. Come see for yourself!
2. 30+ Luxury Brand Boats
We have the most upscale fleet in the Pacific Northwest with high end boats from Crownline, Monterey, Beneteau, Ranger Tugs, and Manitou, to name a few. We stock our fleet with top of the line models loaded with options from some of the most respected manufacturers in the industry. You won't find any typical "rental boats" here. Check out our fleet page to see the most up to date inventory at each of our 6 local locations.
3. Various Boat Sizes Including Overnighters
Smaller boats under 23' can be lots of fun and are great to learn on. We offer a variety of boat sizes, and Carefree members can also enjoy the more comfortable, safer, and drier ride provided by our larger boats. Much of Carefree's fleet is 24' or bigger, many with enclosed heads (private bathrooms) which are much appreciated by moms and kids!
When you're ready for overnight adventures exploring Puget Sound in ultra luxurious boats, step up to our Platinum Club (reserved for boats retailing at over $100,000 new) and enjoy one of our 27' cabin cruisers or Ranger Tugs, equipped with refrigerators, microwaves, hot showers, bow thrusters, heaters, windlass, and sleeping for four.
4. New Boats
Carefree Boat Club Seattle works closely with boat manufacturers year round to buy and sell boats, and is a sister company of a Seattle boat dealership. This allows our members to always enjoy the latest and greatest including hard to find special order boats loaded with options not normally found in boat clubs - bow thrusters, cabin heaters, windlass anchors, upgraded performance packages, high hp engines, plush seating, and much more designed to provide more comfort and safety and allow you to have more fun on the water. We're constantly upgrading our fleet with new boats throughout the year so check our fleet page often to see the latest additions.
5. Award Winning Customer Service
Carefree boat club Seattle has won multiple awards each year, including the prestigious President's award every year since our inception. The mission and drive of our valet dock staff is to delight our members at each of our 6 local locations - Lake Washington (Bellevue and Kirkland), Lake Union, Puget Sound, Lake Chelan, 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 the benefits our members enjoy, Carefree Boat Club has a surprisingly competitive price. Members pay a low one time joining fee and then monthly dues for unlimited use of all six Washington locations. We can customize our pricing 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.
