Support, opportunity & affirmation like no other
So, why choose Nautical Boat Clubs? Yes, there are other boat-club franchises out there – but frankly, none can compare with ours in either the member or owner experience.
We were a boat-club pioneer when we began our business over 20 years ago, and today, we’re one of only two franchises nationwide offering the boat-club concept. We’re also the only franchising program of its kind in the marketplace, thanks to three key components:
SUPERIOR SUPPORT and training we provide for our owners;
Our operational model is a true turnkey business package proven to succeed. But just because we’ve developed a system that works doesn’t mean we use a cookie-cutter approach to setting up our boat clubs. In fact, personalized support for our owners is one of the cornerstones of our system.
As a Boating Country Club® owner, you receive:
- our exclusive club-management software;
- our comprehensive operations manual;
- hands-on experience at one of our clubs;
- up to 30 days of training at our headquarters [competitors offer only 3-4 days];
- help selecting a suitable marina and negotiating a reasonable lease;
- assistance preparing a commercial loan package for your bank to secure fleet financing;
- advice on the boats to include in your fleet, as well as how and when to replace boats so that your fleet is always fresh and new;
- discounted pricing from boat dealers, insurance providers, manufacturers and other suppliers;
- guidance on purchasing of fleet insurance, water toys, office computers and other equipment, and furniture;
- help hiring and training a dock master;
- all startup advertising and marketing materials for direct mail, TV and website development; and
- onsite opening assistance and follow-up.
EXPANSIVE OPPORTUNITY we offer owners in terms of territory; and
We’ve got a great selection of major U.S. markets available for franchise owners, and offer plenty of opportunity for you to open multiple locations. Our business model is ideal for visionaries – dream big!
