Why Join Carefree Boat Club of Los Angeles at Marina Del Rey, CA?
With a membership to our exclusive members-only club, you don’t have to worry about maintenance, storage, trailering, dock fees, insurance, covering or even cleaning. You have unlimited access to not just one boat but our entire fleet of boats ranging in size from 25ft – 38ft in length, and unlimited on the water safety training. We have a very simple walk on/walk off approach. When you arrive at our docks your boat is clean and prepped for departure with a full tank of gas. After your boat outing, simply return the boat re-fueled and off you go! We are a great alternative to buying a boat.
