The Ultimate in Boat Life - Owning It.

Alex McLaughlin

Multi-Location Owner

"Our services are complicated to render. We’ve got a million different boats, different marinas, different members, everything we do whether it’s external or internal requires a relationship. This isn’t a one-man show. The resources that we bring together as a team are much greater than any one of us can provide. That’s in part because of the franchise’s guidance and leadership."

Jon Dukes

Multi-Location Owner

"What I’ve told people that are considering becoming part of the franchise, your ramp up time and your time to profitability is much shorter today than it was when I joined. Nautical really has the numbers down pat, for lack of a better term, they have a great playbook."

Tim Kiser


"I’ve opened clubs in a matter of months and that’s because of the franchise. With the franchise you have purchase agreements with the nicest boat manufacturers. You have marina contracts pre-done, all these things that allow you to step-by step open a club, even if you’ve never opened one before."
