Boat club opens new location

Freedom Boat Club opened a second location in Fort Myers.

FORT MYERS — Freedom Boat Club opened a second location in Fort Myers, with demand continuing to grow for its boating membership service.

“The demand for our boating club in the Ft. Myers area has grown tremendously this past year, leading to the expansion of this new club location to complement our very successful venue at Salty Sam's Marina at Fort Myers Beach,” says John Giglio, president and CEO of Freedom Boat Club, in a statement.

The company's second corporate-owned club in Fort Myers is at 14070 McGregor Blvd., within the MarineMax marina. “We are especially pleased to work cooperatively with MarineMax General Manager Ryan West and his team as we jointly promote boating and seek to service the needs and desires of boaters in the area,” Giglio says in the statement.

Venice-based Freedom Boat Club has 10,000 members and operates in 19 states. After paying an initiation fee and monthly dues, members have access to a fleet of 975 boats at nearly 100 franchise and corporate owned clubs.
