Freedom Boat Club was first founded in 1989 in Sarasota, FL. It is the oldest and largest boat club in the nation. The vision and purpose in establishing the boat club model was simple and straightforward … to provide an affordable option to boat ownership and to deliver a hassle-free recreational boating experience for its members.
In 2007, Glenn Bergoffen bought the Tampa franchise and has built it into the largest franchise in the FBC family. Lisa Reho joined his team in 2015, and what started as 3, has now grown to 20 locations at some of the best boating and fishing spots around Tampa Bay and up the Nature Coast. Our members love the variety and the hassle-free boating lifestyle Freedom offers.
Today, 20,000+ boaters call Freedom Boat Club “home,” with 175+ locations in 31+ states and Canada with franchise operations situated coast-to-coast, and growing daily. 3,200 of them are here in the Tampa Bay area.
Today, Freedom Boat Club welcomes and embraces a broad mix of members to its ranks, from first-time boaters and newbies, to seasoned salts and former boat owners, from young families to active retired. For more information, please call 855.FREEDOM.
