Like most clubs we charge a one-time initiation fee & monthly membership dues. We do not require long commitments from our members; you can join for as little as 1 year and up to 5 years.
No, members have unlimited access to boats. Boat as much as you like. The only limitation is number of future reservations you can have booked at one time. The reservations are not limited by the week, month, or season.
Yes, all members receive “On the Water” training with a National Safe Boating Council Certified On-Water Instructor. Training covers CBC processes, general navigation, docking, and safety. Members can also request as much additional training as they would like, at no additional cost.
Members may have maximum of (4) advanced reservations on the books at any given time. (2) Of the reservations can be weekend time slots. As soon as a reservation is complete, members can immediately book another one.
Reservations are for 5 hours. Morning reservations are from 8:00 am – 1:30 pm & afternoon reservations are from 2:30 pm – 8:00 pm. You can also use two reservations to double book a boat and it is yours for the entire day (8:00 am – 7:00 pm).
Yes, simply call or text us and we will tell you what’s available and you can reserve it for “Spur-of-the-Moment” use. Spur-of-the-Moment use does not count as reservations. It is similar to a “walk on” round of golf.
CBC tracks members vs. boats to ensure we do not have too few boats for our members. In addition to our boats, we also have jet skis that we do not count towards our member-boat ratio. The jet skis are an extra perk of being a member and help open up the reservations system even more.
All members have access to our entire fleet of boats and jet skis. This means members have access to a variety boats from 16’-26’ including our twin engine & single engine center consoles, dual consoles, pontoons, bowriders, rigid hull inflatables, skiffs, and jet skis.
Absolutely, in fact, all boats are inspected daily by the CBC dock staff using a checklist of safety equipment, hull condition, electronics, and general mechanical items.
CBC maintains insurance that covers all of our vessels as well as third party liability. Members generally are only responsible for paying any deductible that may apply if they damage a boat.
Yes, the boat models that are in the fleet are always for sale, if we were to sell a model in the fleet, we would replace it with a new boat. We would only sell any model if we had something better or comparable to replace it with.
Yes. Members may book up to 3 reciprocal reservations at every other Carefree Boat Club location each year. Also, CBC South Jersey members may go to any other CBC South Jersey location up to 5 times a season at each location.
