Freedom Boat Club buys largest franchise in network

Freedom Boat Club has acquired the Freedom Boat Club of Tampa Bay franchise operation and territory, the largest in the Freedom network.

This acquisition includes all 30 current Tampa Bay-based locations, as well as the rights to expand and build new club locations throughout the territory. Located directly north of the company’s headquarters in Venice, Florida, this acquisition will establish two adjacent corporate-owned club territories with over 50 locations spanning from Crystal River to Marco Island.

Cecil Cohn, Freedom Boat Club Network’s President, acknowledges the growth opportunities with this latest acquisition.

He said:

Freedom Boat Club entered the Tampa Bay market in 2012 under the leadership of former owner, Glenn Bergoffen. Over the past 10 years, the territory has grown to become the largest franchise in the Freedom network.

Freedom, a division of Brunswick Corporation, was founded in 1989 and is the world’s oldest and largest boat club. This acquisition sees the company more than doubling the number of locations in the Freedom Boat Club network since the company was acquired by Brunswick in May 2019.
