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!

"After experiencing the pleasure and pain of personal boat ownership for many years, I traded in the boat and the pain for the pleasure of Volente Boat Club."

"I have been a member for almost 10 years. Took a break for a few years in there, but am back. Great experience. The boats are all in "like new" shape and well maintained."
