Thanks for asking! It’s the most common first question we hear, and we’re happy to reply. And, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. By typical franchising standards, the investment cost is extremely reasonable for a Freedom Boat Club franchise.
Here are the standard costs based in U.S. dollars.
The initial franchise fee to purchase a Freedom Boat Club franchise is $38,000. Corporate requires that owner/operators have between $10,000 – $30,000 of working capital on hand when you open your facility.
In our experience, the equipment, new boat inventory and signage, plus the cost of attending training will run another $100,000 – $200,000. So the total investment is around $140,000 – $240,000, including working capital. The franchise fee is paid directly to Freedom Boat Club.
