12 Reasons to Join This Boat Club Rather Than Own a Boat—It’s a No Brainer 

The Joys of Hassle-Free Boating!

If you have rented a boat to cruise around the harbor with friends or family, it would be understandable why you may be in the market for a watercraft of your own. And who could blame you? The way the boating lifestyle has been glamorized in music and entertainment, investing in a majestic water vessel appears to be a great idea—at the surface. Electric Boat Rental Club

The reality is with additional expenses boat owners accrue, including general upkeep, insurance costs and docking fees, most end up spending much more than they bargained for, with less time doing what they enjoy. Before taking the plunge and investing in this fun but pricey hobby, a frugal alternative is right around the corner. Here are the top reasons why you should join the Lido Electric Boats Boat Club instead of buying one for yourself.


1 | No Boating Experience Necessary (Training Included!)

Whether novice or seasoned, boating experience is not necessary to join the boat club. In addition, a boating license is not required to drive these electric boats, and training is provided by the experienced and skilled Lido Electric Boats. The staff will take great pleasure showing you the ropes. In other words, you’ll look like a pro in no time.

The membership allows for unlimited access to any of the fleet’s vessels. The first is the Fantail 217, an adorable replica of the late 1800’s French Riviera boats which was designed for a smooth and carefree sail. Secondly, the Volt 180 offers a high-performance ride with a sleek and bold exterior. Both crafts can accommodate up to 10 passengers and come in an array of colors.

This is a factor that Lido Electric Boats has been putting in all efforts to provide to their members. From the pristine condition of the boats to the seamless reservation process, LEB has taken the time to map out the best nautical experience for their guests from start to finish.
