The modern way to go boating

Experience boating with The Boat Club Membership

Membership boating is the natural choice for the modern-day boater. Anyone who has ever owned a boat understands the effort and costs involved. As passionate boaters, we started to think about how boating could be made accessible to everyone.

Our aim was to offer all the wonderful and unique experiences of owning a boat; without the inhibitive costs, time-intensive maintenance and the restrictiveness of just one boat type.

After some tinkering and a little magic, The Boat Club Membership was born.

The Boat Club is the best of boating, without the hassle and unexpected costs
Mark, member

Don't take our word for it; our members love The Boat Club. Many are new to boating; some never considered boating as an option, finding the whole concept quite intimidating. Others were looking to purchase their first boat. All agree, The Boat Club is the perfect balance of choice, value for money and a great platform to gain experience on the water.

Other members are seasoned boaters, either looking to upgrade their existing boat, go for something a little bigger or returning to boating after a break. Our extensive range of RIBs, Pilot House, cruisers and cabin boats make boating even more fun. Rain or shine, playing in the chop or anchored in the bay for lunch, we have the perfect boat for every occasion.
