Our proprietary club-management software gives you:

  • our “bulletproof” boat reservation system – handles any number of boat reservations, and has helped all of our clubs fulfill 97%+ of member reservation requests since the day they opened [we’re the only boat club with this capability! it’s one of the main reasons our members rate us as superior]; notes whether the member is in good standing and whether the reservation is within the terms of the member’s plan, as well as any outstanding balances;
  • automated member communications – sends reservation confirmations to members detailing reservation information and confirmation numbers; automatically generates monthly statements for members that can be either emailed or traditionally mailed;
  • tracking of current member activity & new member prospects – manages each member’s activity throughout their stay with your club; tracks all membership inquiries and offers a follow-up telephone feature; automatically calculates current-member upgrades and new-member enrollment totals; generates membership cards including photo;
  • boat-use inventory & maintenance tracking;
  • robust reporting capabilities – generates a whole host of management and statistical reports necessary to run a successful club;
  • myriad business forms, letters & other documents – provides all the paperwork you need to effectively manage your boat-club business, including our membership agreement, other legal agreements, various forms, useful letters, dock master reports and a membership newsletter; and
  • monthly royalty reports – automatically calculates and details your monthly royalties [5% of gross sales].

Our software system manages multiple club locations with ease, and is accessible with a high-speed Internet connection from home or any remote location.
