Carefree Boat Club
The Carefree Boat Club, established in 2002 in Woodbridge, Va., was one of the first in the Tri-Cities. Later, Rockingham Marina on Boone Lake came on board in 2011, leading the way for South Holston Lake and Watauga Lake locations. Carefree Boat Club is a members-only boat club where members buy a membership for unlimited, reserved access to a quality fleet of boats. The mission of the Carefree Boat Club is to create lifelong memories by providing members with an affordable, quality boating experience that is fun, easy, and safe.
The cost of membership is about 1/3 the cost of owning a boat. They offer an exceptional alternative to boat ownership including access to all club locations, most at prime destination spots, Boat sizes range from 18 - 27 feet and include deck, bowrider, fishing, pontoon, cruiser, sail, and water sport boats, Select locations may offer other sizes to best fit their body of water, Instructors provide boat safety training and handling skills at each location. Members are provided with four reservations at a time allowing them to pick the day, time, boat, and Carefree location, up to six months in advance. Their model gives members the opportunity to get onto the water, spend time with friends and family, and experience the freedom and thrill that comes with boating without the hassle of owning and maintaining a boat!
The Carefree Boat Club Tennessee has been recognized every single year with Service Award, Performance Award, and/ or Achievement Award from the corporate level. They were honored with the very prestigious 2017 President's Club Award at the national conference in Orlando.
