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!

"This club is exactly what we wanted. No boat payment, insurance cost, maintenance, or clean up. Nice clean boats always ready when needed. We're able to take out our dogs too. It's great only having to pull the boat into the dock and leave the boat behind. "

"We are so happy with our Nautical Boat Club membership. We get to enjoy all the benefits of owning a boat, without any of the hassle and for less than the cost of renting a slip! When we arrive at the dock, our life jackets and water toys are loaded on the boat and ready to go. The staff is super friendly and courteous. This is a great way to relax and enjoy friends and family on the waterfront in Knoxville."

"We absolutely love NBC of Knoxville! It's so much better than having to maintain a boat and trailer it in and out of the water. Plus, we have access to a fleet of different boats to fit our needs, instead of being stuck with one type. "
