Who we are

We are a most unique boat club, compromised of just 50 memberships.  While the club may become smaller than 50 memberships, it can never exceed 50.  Our monthly membership meetings are held as dinner parties in our members’ homes.  Our limited size allows everyone to know your name, and shortly you will know his or hers.   Membership in the Club will be a fast track to great friendships and many memorable experiences.

What we do

Lunch cruises and local events, we’ve had many trips to the Bahamas, Florida Keys, Dry Tortugas, Florida Panhandle and other distant locations.  We also have social activities that happen frequently. Importantly, this is not all we do, we also help each other and serve our community.  The Club can provide boating safety and navigational guidance, as well as assistance to new boat owners to improve their operational and maintenance skills.  The Club Fleet Engineer Group are available to our members for mechanical advice, hands on help, and even tools to help keep our boats running.  Our Civic endeavors range from financial contributions and support of local charities, to our work in Lee County Adopt-A-Road program.
