The Affordable Alternative
to Boat Ownership™


Freedom Boat Club of Chicago


Local Club Locations: Montrose Harbor, Streeterville

Welcome to Freedom Boat Club Chicago. We are the perfect alternative to boat ownership or renting a boat on Lake Michigan. In fact, your monthly membership fee can be less than renting a boat for just one day in Chicago. The best part of being a member in Freedom Boat Club Chicago is that you don’t have any of the hassles that come with owning a boat. You don’t pay for insurance, docking fees, depreciation, maintenance, or storage.

Your membership gives you access to our entire fleet in your membership class – fishing boats, cabin cruisers, deck boats and even sailboats. And all your basic training is included with your membership.

Membership in Freedom Boat Club Chicago is easy. You pay a one-time initiation fee and then low monthly dues.

Whether you want to spend more time with your friends and family, want to dive Lake Michigan wrecks, love to fish, or just want to hang out in the Playpen, Freedom Boat Club Chicago has the boat in our fleet that’s right for every occasion. The boat is waiting. Why are you? Join Freedom Boat Club Chicago and experience the smart alternative to boat ownership or renting! Start the process by submitting your information above.




Here's How the Club Works

We Maintain a Fleet of Boats

We’ve taken care to select a variety of quality boats. And we always keep them clean and maintained. We also take care of the storage, insurance and repairs. So you can just focus on the fun!

You Sign Up With the Club

Just pay a 1x entry fee and choose one of our membership plans. Boat every day of the year. Or just weekdays. And you can change your plan as the need arises.

Get FREE, Unlimited Training

Your safety is our No. 1 concern. So we give all our members unlimited training with USCG-certified captains. And if you wish to boat in a new location, they’ll show you the waterways.

Reserve a Boat and Enjoy!

Reserve a boat by phone or online. Then go fishing, tubing or head to a restaurant with friends. When you’re done, just bring the boat back and pay for the fuel. We take care of everything else!

Why Choose Freedom Boat Club?

Freedom Boat Club was started in 1989 with the mission of creating a simple and easy boating experience without the usual costly and time consuming hassles that traditionally accompany boat ownership. With Freedom you can just make a reservation, hit the water and drive home knowing that every detail has been carefully managed.

Boat Ownership vs. Joining the Club

Boat ownership means taking on more responsibility than simply enjoying the open water. There’s the cleaning, storage, insurance and repairs to consider; not to mention depreciation. The costs can quickly add up.
