Franchise opportunities now available

We have spent five years refining the boat club model popular in the USA and Europe to Australian conditions and boaters. Many have asked how we do it and how they can become a part of it. Partnering with The Franchise Institute to make Boatlife Boat Club franchise ready, we are pleased to announce we are now accepting expressions of interest from persons and organisations interested in becoming partners.

About Boatlife Boat Club

Boatlife Boat Club has been operating on Sydney Harbour and Pittwater for 5 years. Members pay a simple subscription either annually in advance or monthly. The only additional cost is the fuel they use.

Membership fees convert to points. Points required for a particular days usage is weighted by season and day of the week on which a member utilises a boat and the size of the boat they are using.

Members book via Boatlife Boat Club’s propriety portal – “MyBoatLife”. In addition, the portal is utilised for check in and check outs, vessel monitoring and subscription payments taking the hassle out of administration for franchisees.

Operating from premier marina locations, Boatlife Boat Club provides members with an experience akin to ownership without the hassles of owning a boat.

The vessels and operation are regulated by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. Members receive intensive training and are kinder to boats than typical one day hire / drive operations.

Locations operate on an unattended, self-serve basis negating the need for intensive staffing by using a common fleet.
