Discover Why Others Are Trading In Their Boats For A Carefree Boat Club Membership... And Never Looked Back
"I am extremely pleased with the decision to join Carefree Boat Club and would recommend it to anyone looking to take advantage of living on the North Shore. Joining saved me from having to find a used boat and possibly making a bad purchase. All the boats in the fleet are high quality and reliable."
"Joined in April of 2018 and I am new to boating. After a few sessions with Eric (owner), I learned to safely navigate the rivers and open waterways. The experience thus far has been very positive and Eric has been more than accommodating. My family and I are looking forward to a great summer on the water and we highly recommend Carefree Boat Club Danvers."
"We've been able to have a nice boat every time we asked for one and the boats are always clean and very well maintained. The reservation process is easy and convenient. We would recommend Danvers Carefree Club to anyone who wants to enjoy boating without the hassles of owning one. It's the best option!"
Frequently Asked Questions
What Is A Boat Club?
Carefree Boat Club is a private club. This means that our boats are only available to Members. We do not rent or charter our boats. Our members are the only ones with unlimited access to the fleet and they never pay a fee to use the boats.
Is It Truly "Unlimited?"
Yes! Members have true unlimited access to boats. Boat as much as you like.
Is It Worth The Price?
It really is. With membership as little as 1/3 cost of owning a boat, you can cross numerous expenses off your list such as: boat purchase, slip fee, insurance, maintenance, repairs, taxes, towing and winterization.
How Does The Training Work?
All members get as much training as they need on and off the water. "On The Water" training is done with a certified instructor. Training covers CBC processes, general navigation, docking and safety.
Are The Boats Well-Maintained?
Absolutely, in fact, all boats are inspected weekly by the CBC dock staff using a 50 point checklist of safety equipment, hull condition, electronics, and general mechanical items.
"Fall In Love With The Premier Boating Lifestyle"
"I joined Carefree a little over a year ago. My experience has been nothing short of excellent. I have enjoyed boating for years but was never the captain. When some life circumstances changed, I thought I would have to give up this relaxing pleasure. I was not ready to do that, so boating without owning was the perfect solution for me. Eric is a patient instructor and made sure that I was completely comfortable before going out on my own. The price is reasonable, and the extras that come membership are great!"
"This is our 3rd year at the Carefree Boat Club at Danver's and we continue to thoroughly enjoy the experience. The concept works well for us, just make a reservation on-line and show up at the dock. The boats are new or nearly new, are always clean and ready to go. Eric and Karen are terrific people, they run the club like family. Always friendly, courteous, and accommodating to most any situation. Eric encourages you to get out there, helps make it happen, and makes the club experience very enjoyable."
