Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman has merged its operations with Queen City Boat Club to further solidify its position as the largest boat club on Lake Norman. Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman has expanded its fleet of boats in the acquisition, now offering members the choice of six boats on a reservation basis, including four Sea Rays, ranging in size from 21 to 26 feet, and two pontoon boats.
“We’re very excited about combining these two successful clubs to continue serving the boating needs of the Lake Norman community and surrounding areas,” said Marc Graveline, President of Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman. “We welcome our new members joining us from Queen City Boat Club and are looking forward to providing our existing members with an even better boating experience.”
Founded in March 2008, Queen City Boat Club brought the hassle-free boating concept to Lake Norman. Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman launched in May 2010 with a three boat fleet, quickly expanding to five boats by the summer of 2011.
A September 27, 2011 Boating Industry feature article, “Boat Clubs Defy Recession”, described the growing trend of this alternative to boat ownership (Boat Clubs Defy the Recession).
“Combining the strengths of both clubs, Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman is now not only the largest boat club on the lake, but also the longest established,” said Graveline.
Located at WaterStreet Seaport in Cornelius, Carefree Boat Club of Lake Norman enables members to enjoy the boating lifestyle with concierge service without the expense and work often associated with owning a boat.
Membership also includes use of boats at other Carefree Boat Club locations in Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina, Florida and Texas. For more information on memberships, please visit www.carefreeboats.com or call John Gillette at 704-497-0778.
