New ‘boat club’ offers unlimited outings without the hassle of owning a boat

Emerald Coast Marine in Niceville just officially announced the launch of their new boating club – Emerald Coast Boat Club – just in time for the season!

So, if you don’t want to deal with all that is involved with owning your own boat, you can join the club and choose from a mix of popular powerboats. Their entire fleet ranges from 20’ to 25′ and are two years old or newer.

A few perks

  • Private member-only access to a variety of premium boats including center consoles, deck-boats, tritoons, kayaks and paddleboards
  • Unlimited boating
  • Online reservation system
  • No insurance, maintenance or storage fees
  • Free boating education – safety instruction and class included with every membership
  • Concierge services available for provisioning your boat – ice, snacks, drinks, bait and tackle
  • Onsite rentals available for Yeti coolers and watersports equipment

Active members have access to an online reservation system where you can call dibs on one of the boats when you want to get out on the water. Some levels of membership even grant you full access to the yacht club.

According to Emerald Coast Marine, each membership option requires a standard one-time initiation fee and standard monthly dues. The only additional cost is fuel, based upon individual consumption per outing, and any concierge service requested by the member such as rental gear, ice, beverages, etc.
