566px-Freedom-Boat-Club-Logo-with-dropsWhen it comes to living in South Florida, there’s nothing better than being out on the water. In Fort Lauderdale, we have over 165 miles of navigable waterways, making a boat a must-have necessity for many South Floridians. Whether a pleasure cruise, going fishing, or throwing out the tow-rope to do some wakeboarding, one thing is certain: a day on the water beats two on land. The downside to nautical hobbies is the expense. Let’s face it: boats can be costly – and then’s there’s the maintenance. Buying and maintaining a boat costs money, and lots of it. That’s why boating can be too expensive for the average person. The facts are simple and well-documented. It starts with the 20% of the boat’s value you lose the moment it leaves the dock for the first time. Then, of course, there’s the upkeep; you can usually expect to spend around 10% of the boat’s value on annual maintenance. On top of that, you’re going to have to store your boat, which can run anywhere from $150 to $450 per month, depending on the location and type of storage/dock you choose. When you add it all up, it’s obvious that a little fun on the water can cost a lot of coin. But what if you didn’t have to pay huge boat payments or monthly dockage fees? What if you didn’t  have to pay for maintenance? What if you could have a team of people dedicated to making sure your boat is always in tip-top condition and waiting for you when you need it? Freedom Boat Club can provide you with just that, they have everything you need to enjoy South Florida’s boating lifestyle without the hassle and expense of owning a boat. Freedom Boat Club members have access to a fleet of boats, all meticulously cared for by their team of professionals. Everything from bow-riders, center consoles, cutty cabins, and even a few bad boys with dual engines. At Freedom Boat Club, boating is a pleasure. Members enjoy a premier boating experience; you simply pick the boat you would like to use online, and show up at the dock at the time that you picked to find your vessel fueled and waiting. When you return from your day of boating, simply dock the boat at the marina and go home. Freedom’s staff will perform all cleaning and maintenance. It’s this high-end service that has many South Floridians saying “no” to the loan and “yes” to the Club. If you are considering buying a boat, you really have to take a good hard look at Freedom Boat Club. You pay a small fee once a month for access to a fleet of boats and a well-trained staff that makes sure you have great day on the water. If you really think about what it takes to maintain your own boat, it begins to look more like a second job than a recreational item, begging the question: why would you buy the boat when you can get the fun for free? Freedom Boat Club is how boating should be: fun and easy. So before you sign on for that monster boat loan, call Freedom Boat Club (1-866-334-7938), and get access to an entire fleet of boats for a fraction of what you would pay to own just one. ***Be sure to ask about the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show special, an amazing value at just $199 a month, with no dues till 2010!*** Freedom Boat Club SW 20th St Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315 1-866-334-7938 [mappress]
