GRAPEVINE, Texas – Nautical Boat Club® proudly announces the grand opening of Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine – the company’s eighteenth national franchise, a second location for Dallas-Fort Worth, and the first Boating Country Club® on Lake Grapevine.

“We’re thrilled to be launching Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine,” attests Tom Gardiner, a longtime franchisee who took ownership of Nautical Boat Clubs® in 2012. “Dallasites love our Lake Lewisville location, so we’re excited to extend the opportunity to experience the ultimate in boating ease, affordability, and fun to Lake Grapevine!”

Founded more than two decades ago, Nautical Boat Club® was a pioneer in the boat-club business. The company’s Boating Country Clubs® are a simple alternative to buying a boat: for about one-third of the cost of purchasing a single boat, members get unlimited use of a diverse selection of brand-new boats, all-you-can-use free water toys, and the convenience of valet boating service. Monthly dues cover all expenses except for gas – including insurance, maintenance, and slip fees.

“For our members, a day out on the water is as easy as 1-2-3,” Gardiner affirms. “You make a reservation for the boat you want and arrive at the marina at your reserved time. The boat you’ve chosen will be clean, fueled, and loaded with whatever water toys you request; you just hop in, turn the key and go! Once you’re done, you gas up, return your boat, and head home – with your day well-spent and some lifelong memories, too.”

Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine will be conveniently located at Scott’s Landing Marina along the lake’s south side in Oak Grove Park. Scott’s Landing is Lake Grapevine’s largest marina, a mecca for boaters and other outdoorsy folks; Big Daddy’s Shipstore hosts delicious lakeside dining, while Oak Grove Park – one of the lake’s most beautiful recreation areas – features paved trails for hiking and biking, covered picnic tables, and sand volleyball. With 8,000 sprawling, sparkling acres of water and 60 gorgeous miles of shoreline, Lake Grapevine has so much to offer visitors – both on-land and on-lake.

“Lake Grapevine is wonderful for boating, water sports, fishing, hiking, biking, camping – you name it,” effuses Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine franchisee Jonathan Hargrove. “It has a great easygoing charm about it. However you want to spend your day – whether it’s just kicking back and cruising the lake, or getting extreme with wake surfing, wake boarding, or waterskiing – Lake Grapevine is a super spot for it!”

Hargrove has owned and operated Nautical Boat Club® – Little Elm at Lake Lewisville since 2014, and is eager to offer more of his North Texas neighbors the Boating Country Club® experience. All members receive unlimited boat use, access to a full fleet of fabulous boats, guaranteed reservations with an availability rate over 97%, complimentary use of water toys, premium dockside valet service, and reciprocal guest privileges at all Nautical Boat Club® locations nationwide.

As further incentive, Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine is offering a special bonus for those who act promptly: The first 50 members at the new location will receive Charter Memberships – and will never have to pay an annual renewal or rejoin fee.

“Now is the time to join Nautical Boat Club® – Grapevine,” Hargrove concludes. “We invite all DFW boating enthusiasts and lake lovers to call and come for a tour today – the boats are shiny, the lake is full, and getting out on the water is now easier, more affordable, and more fun than ever!”
