Freedom Boat Club Expands in the UK

Freedom Boat Club, a division of Brunswick Corporation announced the opening of its first franchise locations in the United Kingdom. Consistent with Freedom’s growth strategy to scale its European footprint, the two new locations in Windermere and Torquay, provide its global membership base access to some of the top boating destinations in the UK.

Now with 33 locations across the UK, France, and Spain, the opening of the new locations were celebrated during the UK’s largest boat show, the Southampton International Boat Show, which Freedom exhibited at for the first time September 16 to 25.

Newly opened on September 1, the Windermere location is owned and operated by Grahame Armer of Aquatic Quays Marina. The new location boasts district status as a World Heritage Site providing members access to the ultimate Lake District experience.

Opening Spring 2023, Freedom Boat Club Torquay is based on South Pier within Torquay Harbour. A well-protected boating haven, the harbour has access to some of the best facilities in the southwest and provides the ideal base from which to explore the beautiful English Riviera coastline. The location is owned and operated by Jason Bond and Antony Birchell of Birchell Marina.
