THREE GOOD REASONS YOU SHOULD PARTNER If you've been paying attention to boating industry trends the past few years, you know that boat clubs are all the buzz. There are several good reasons for that. BOAT CLUBS ARE PROFITABLE. Whether you're a dedicated marina operator or also offer new boat sales, Freedom Boat Club offers a powerful new stream of recurring revenue. You can own and operate the club directly, or provide slip and offi ce space for an approved franchisee. Either way, you realize new revenue right to the bottom-line. BOATS CLUBS DRIVE TRAFFIC AND BUILD NEW BUSINESS. Our boat club members are actively engaged in the boating lifestyle. From fuel to provisioning to ship store purchases, boat club members are simply good for business. Boat clubs also bring new people into the fold, many of whom love the lifestyle so much that they end up investing in a boat of their own. Approximately 20% of all Freedom Boat Club members end up buying a new boat, thus creating a natural funnel for future boat sales. STARTING A BOAT CLUB IS A RELATIVELY EASY PROPOSITION. No major overhead or outrageous start-up costs. Freedom Boat Club has a proven, turnkey plan and program with plenty of corporate franchisor training and support.
