Boating Made Simple®


Freedom Boat Club


Local Club Locations: Newburyport, Portsmouth, Newington

With 3 locations locally, our members enjoy a wide range of boating activities. The Merrimac River is the #1 rated spot to fish for striped bass in MA and a great starting point for a cruise to Sandy Point, Crane Beach, Wingaersheek Beach, Rockport. Our Portsmouth location is ideal for cruising out to the Isles of Shoals and southern Maine. Our Great Bay location is a terrific spot for water sports and the fishing is very good up there as well. All locations also offer inland boating options where you can enjoy a relaxing cruise, watersports and fun times on the sand bars.

Our members enjoy unlimited use of our full fleet of 40 boats at our Newburyport, Portsmouth and Newington, NH locations, as well as reciprocal use at over 275 other North American locations from coast-to-coast. This gives you a number of great boating options locally while also allowing you to explore new waters when you are traveling.

Our members simply call or go online to reserve the boat and the day they want to go boating. When they show up, the boat is warmed up and ready to go. When they return, they simply hand us the keys and walk away! There is no maintenance or repairs to worry about, no insurance payments or storage costs to pay for, and definitely no cleaning. FBC is boating at it's best!




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.
