“We’re thrilled to open a new location at the beautiful Swantown Marina. This new boat club will allow our members to enjoy the gorgeous waterfront sport and scenery that Olympia and Puget Sound have to offer,” said Shawn Ottenbreit, owner of Freedom Boat Club locations in Olympia, Tacoma, and Bremerton.
The grand opening celebration includes a variety of boating activities fun for all ages. There will be a “Wildfire BBQ” lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony to follow. Guests can enjoy a tour of the boat fleet and free boat rides from 1:30 pm-4:00 pm. The party also includes: live DJing from KAYO 96.9 radio, West Marine boating swag and prizes, grand opening special pricing offers, and more.
Freedom Boat Club has locations in each U.S. city with access to water. Their boat share program allows Puget Sound-area members unlimited access to 40+ boats in six locations, plus access to sister clubs in Bremerton and Tacoma. There are several membership options and members receive professional, on-the-water safety and education training.
“Our family has loved being a part of Freedom Boat Club over the past year. Owning a boat can get really expensive and it is definitely a hassle. Being a part of the boat club takes the hassle out of it and we get to spend more time enjoying the water,” said local boat club members, Alan & Louisa Shimamoto.
