HOW IT WORKS
The British Boat Club is a cost effective and flexible way to go boating on a fleet of new boats. There's no maintenance, cleaning, mooring fees or servicing to deal with. You simply pay for each day to go boating with no hassle!
We have two membership options.
Pay As You Boat
You pay an monthly membership fee of £30 for your annual membership, which gives you access to the members area. You then simply reserve a boat for a set fee on our online booking system on the day you want. Perfect for occasional use of the boats.
You pay a monthly membership fee of £199 or £450 which gives you unlimited access to any of the boats in your plan, subject to our fair use policy. If you're looking for more regular access to boats, this plan is the one for you!
RESERVING A BOAT
To become a member, you need to have either 3 years of boating experience, or Powerboat Level 2. If you have no experience or training, we can provide this to enable you to become a member.
