About Carefree Boat Club – Share in the Lifestyle
Carefree Boat Club has revolutionized the way people enjoy boating. With us, there is no more need to own an expensive boat that you only use four times a year. And its not an activity only enjoyed by the wealthy. Anyone can share in the fun; it’s the best way to get in on the boating lifestyle. Plus, with clubs all over the east coast (and Texas), you can enjoy it anywhere you go. As a members only group, Carefree Boat Club makes it easy, fun and totally accessible. It’s like renting or sharing a boat, with lots of fringe benefits!

Whether your dream of the perfect day is seeing your child’s expression when they catch their first big fish, or listening to them laugh when they catch air on a tube, exploring historic fishing towns and secluded harbors, closing a deal in the warm glow of a perfectly sunbathed deck, or just putting out the anchor and floating away from traffic jams and telephones, let the Carefree Boat Club make your vision come true.
