After five years of success on the mainland of British Columbia, Freedom Boat Club is expanding to Canoe Cove Marina on Vancouver Island.
Sandy Purdon, President of Freedom Boat Club, BC led the expansion of the club outside of the US to BC in 2016. With two successful clubs now operating in the Vancouver area, expanding to Vancouver Island is a natural next step.
“With close proximity to the ferries, the Gulf Islands and the San Juan Islands, the location offers easy access to every kind of boating for our members at this club and those from the mainland or other clubs from around the world that come to visit.” said Purdon.
Members of Boat Club pay a one-time, and then monthly fee to join. Once they’re aptly trained, they have access to the fleet any time, and all maintenance, insurance and training is provided by the club. To make sure the experience stays interesting, the fleet is varied; different boats afford members different adventures. From bow riders to fishing boats, there is something for everyone – and members have reciprocal benefits with any Freedom Boat Club around the world.
For Canoe Cove, the club is a welcomed addition. “We are so pleased to welcome the Freedom team to the Cove,” says Don Prittie, General Manager at Canoe Cove. Freedom Boat Club at Canoe Cove has been extremely well received with new members already signed up. The club quietly opened its doors at the beginning of May and is currently setting up operations and installing its initial fleet of five boats. The Club celebrated its grand opening on Saturday, June 5.
