Boating Made Simple®


Freedom Boat Club of Hampton Roads


Local Club Locations: Hampton, Norfolk/East Beach, Portsmouth

Andy Sutter believes that boating is a way for people to relax, connect with friends, and create powerful memories with family. They also believe that boating should be an escape, not a nuisance. Two years ago, Andy – a Little Falls NY native, who relocated to Virginia Beach in 1988 when he joined the Navy – brought this philosophy to life when he opened the local Freedom Boat Club, the world's largest members-only boating club designed for folks who want access to a versatile fleet of boats on a regular basis at an affordable cost.

At Freedom Boat Club of Hampton Roads, you can fish, wake-board, relax and simply get away - without any hassle. We maintain the boats while you enjoy unlimited free training and boat access! We will see you on the docks!




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.
