Frequently Asked Questions

A. A boat club is a members-only group that offers access to a fleet of boats for a membership fee, typically an initiation fee and monthly dues. The concept is similar to the traditional golfing country club.

A: In business for over 20 years, Nautical Boat Club® , LLC, was one of the pioneers in the boat-club industry.

We’re the only boat club to offer the Boating Country Club® experience: We own, insure, outfit and maintain a full fleet of sleek, new boats, as well as a treasure chest of water toys, like skis, wakeboards, tubes, jackets, etc. We offer annual memberships for unlimited use of our fleet and complimentary use of our water toys, along with premium dockside valet service. And, to join, you simply pay a one-time membership fee and monthly dues.
