Don’t Buy a Boat® – Join the Club!


Club Membership vs. Boat Ownership

There are a number of reasons why it makes more sense to join Nautical Boat Club than to own your own boat.

In addition to the superior variety, service, and perks you get as a Nautical Boat Club® member, you also spend much less time and energy on upkeep, as well as way less money! The cost to be a Member of Nautical Boat Club® is about one-third the cost of owning your own boat.

The bottom line? Belonging to a Boating Country Club® is a better deal, with a bonus “no-hassle” appeal!

Superior Reviews


"I've thoroughly enjoyed the Westwood Boat Club. Alex, Gavin, and Bryan are all outstanding at providing an easy and fast checkout, and return, all the boats have worked well, and I've always been able to reserve a boat, even on short notice. Highly recommend the club."

"Really enjoying the boat club, they provide great service and take the boat owning hassles out of the equation. Much better deal than owning your own boat and renting a slip on Lake Austin!"

"The Nautical Boat Club is absolutely wonderful We've owned a wake surfing boat on Lake Austin for the last 5 or so years and just had had enough with all the maintenance and hassles of boat ownership. So we sold it and joined the club, so much better and easier in almost every way - choice of very new boats, boats well maintained, great location, easy parking, best/newest marina on the lake, great people, and they even uncover the boat and valet it around for you. Seriously - you can never touch a boat cover again!"
