We like spending as much time on the water as possible - rowing, paddle-boarding, and sailing. For years, what was missing was the exhilarating fun of riding something fast and powerful.
As we frequently change and “rotate” our preferred hobbies, I never want to commit to owning anything, and my preference has always been some form of a shared ownership, club, or rent/lease. But, while that worked great with all other kinds of “water toys”, we were never able to find a similar arrangement with power boating. That is, until we met Tona and Bijan at the LA Boat Show and learned about Carefree Boat Club. What the Club had to offer seemed perfect – new or near-new equipment, no need to worry about repairs or maintenance, and reasonable pricing. We have been members for a few months and enjoy it thoroughly. The arrangement turned out to be exactly what we expected – no catch. For the most part, we take one of the boats out for a few hours in the Santa Monica Bay. Everyone loves it - my wife, our kids, and our friends. We had our parents on the boat for a very enjoyable Mother’s Day celebration. And once, we took it out to Catalina – what a fantastic trip that was! Thanks, Bijan and Tona!
