Marc and Oana Graveline, Owners
Marc and Oana bought their first boat in 2005. They fell in love with the boating lifestyle but soon realized the cost of owning a boat was much more than expected. Researching their options, they learned about boat clubs and liked the idea so much that in 2010 they started the Lake Norman Carefree Boat Club. When not working on their business, the Gravelines keep busy with their dog, Baxter and visiting their children, Chris - Go Hokies and Madi - Go Dawgs!
Allan Church, Dock Manager
Allan grew up in Utah and fell in love with waterskiing at 10 years old. Unfortunately, there were only three months a year to enjoy it. In 1999 while living in Charlotte, Allan, and his wife Allison, bought their first boat and spent every weekend exploring local lakes. Loving the lake lifestyle, Churches settled in Tega Cay in 2001 along with their children Kennedy and Harrison.
