Start Your Own Club Nautico Boating Business

Club Nautico Franchise Opportunity


Our Boat Clubs Are Experiencing Massive Growth! And You Can Join Us!

As the sharing economy continues to grow and expand, the booming demand for Easy, Affordable and Smart ways to get on the water seems indisputable. And the validation of our innovative, membership-based approach comes from the most important source of all: the 1000+ enthusiastic, paying members who are leading happier, healthier and less stressful lives thanks to Club Nautico. We are looking for the right people…individuals and groups with the resources, vision and dedication to excellence it will take to introduce the exciting Club Nautico concept to their market.

Creating memories & opportunities for 30+ years

Launched more than three decades ago, Club Nautico was one of the pioneers of the boat-club business. We bring our members the fun and adventure of the boating lifestyle without the expense and hassle of boat ownership – while bringing our owners opportunity and success as entrepreneurs living the waterside dream!

Why join a club?

Our Club Nautico boats are a simple alternative to buying a boat. Previous boat owners and new boaters alike join our clubs to enjoy the fun and memories of being out on the water while avoiding the storage, hauling, cleaning and maintenance of owning a boat.

For about one-third the cost of purchasing a single boat, our members get unlimited use of a wide variety of boats – from ski boats to sailboats, pontoons to fishing boats – and the convenience of valet boating service: When they come to the club, their reserved top-notch boat is clean, gassed and loaded up with their requested water toys; they simply hop in, turn the key and go. When they’re done for the day, they just return to the club, dock the boat and head home. Monthly dues cover unlimited boat use, complimentary use of a variety of water toys, and reciprocal boating privileges at our other Club Nautico’s around the country. Members are responsible for replacing the gas they use.

Why start a franchise?

As the owner of a Club Nautico franchise, not only are you the boss of your own successful business, but your business is also an enviable lifestyle – when you go to “the office” every day, you’re going to work [and play] on the water!

Once you decide to invest in a Club Nautico, we never stop investing in your success. We’re at your side throughout the preparatory phase, providing hands-on experience at an operating club, up to 30 days of individualized training, and on-site assistance as you launch your new business. You receive not only our comprehensive operations manual, but also our proprietary club-management software – and training for how you can use it to practically autopilot your daily business activities. Additionally, you get support from a terrific network of other club owners, ideas and insights from our annual conferences, and reciprocity among clubs.
