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. The Carefree Boat Club instructors were patient 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 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. The staff are terrific people, they run the club like family. Always friendly, courteous, and accommodating to most any situation. They encourage you to get out there, help make it happen, and make the club experience very enjoyable."
After meeting with Ed we decided to sell our boat and join Boothbay Harbor’s Care Free Boat Club. It was the best decision we could have made. Not only are we saving money, the staff is fantastic and we could not ask for more from the Dock Hands to the Club Captains who are constantly meeting our needs. Boat reservations are easy to make and we, along with all our boating guests, have had positive experiences at CareFree Boat Club.
