Freedom Boat Club Lake Erie


Local Club Locations: Anchors Away Marina (Catawba Island/Lakeside Marblehead), Huron Boat Basin Marina (Huron), Emerald Necklace Marina (Rocky River Reservation/Lakewood), Channel Park Marina (Cleveland) and Mentor Harbor Yachting Club (Mentor)

Whether taking part in water sports (waterskiing, wakeboarding, tubing), fishing, visiting the islands, or dining by boat, you will most definitely create memories that will last a life time.

We also offer our members a full social calendar of events, including Open Houses/Member Socials, Fishing Club, Safety Clinics, Lady Diva's Safety Clinics, Social/Safety Island Cruises, and our annual Fish Fry. All of these activities allow you to enjoy and familiarize yourself with the surrounding marina and to get to know other Freedom Boat Club Lake Erie members.

Our goal is to ensure that our members feel confortable and confident at the helm. As a Freedom Boat Club Lake Erie member you are entitled to receive FREE unlimited training by our team of United States Coast Guard licensed captains.

We provide personalized one on one training, including a mandatory boater training class for all new members. The class consists of a combination of classroom and on-the-water instruction. Additional and continuing safety information and training clinics will be available and running all season long. A Member of FBCLE must be 21 years of age; boaters born on or after January 1, 1982, must have a valid Ohio Safe Boating Card.

We also like to leave a philanthropy footprint! FBCLE supports local and national non-profit organizations and invite our members to join in on the fun.

Depending on the location/weather, our boating season starts mid April and runs until the end of October. We are open 7 days a week (weather permitting) to serve you and your boating needs. Boating is also available by utilizing the reciprocal membership benefits at over 230 locations throughout North America, Canada, and Europe.




Here's How the Club Works

We Take Care of It All...Including the 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!

Pay a 1x Entry Fee and Monthly Dues

Just pay a 1x entry fee and choose one of our membership plans. Boat every day of the year. Or just weekdays. Some clubs may even have 3 and 6 month plans. And you can change your plan as the need arises.

Get Unlimited Training from Licensed Captains

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.

Take Any Boat Out as Often as You Wish

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!

Boat Ownership vs. Joining the Club

Boat ownership consists of much more than enjoying the water: cleaning, storage, maintenance and repairs, not to mention depreciation. The hidden costs of ownership can quickly add up, as can the time that is spent not enjoying the boat.
