A US based boat club franchise has announced it is looking to expand into the South West.

Freedom Boat Club, a division of Brunswick Corporation, the world’s largest boat club operator is looking to expand in the UK and Bristol is one of its key target areas.

The UK operation is embarking on a growth strategy to further open access to top boating destinations throughout the UK for its global membership base.

It  recently launched their first three UK franchise operations, with Lake Windermere welcoming members from September 2022, Torquay recently opened their doors and Loch Lomond will be in action at the start of the upcoming summer season.

The aim is to make boating accessible, affordable and easy for all people from all backgrounds.

With the 2023 boating season fast approaching, Freedom plan to expand and grow their selection of marinas and boating options available, so their wide membership base can benefit from greater choice.
