Freedom Boat Club appointed Maryland entrepreneurs and father/daughter team Larry and JoAnna Goldberg to its growing ranks of franchise owners and operators.

JoAnna Goldberg is president and partner of Fairwinds Marina LLC and FWBC. She and Larry, president of Real Estate Management Associates and managing partner of Fairwinds Marina LLC and FWBC, are based in Annapolis, Md.

The Goldbergs assume exclusive rights to the Freedom Boat Club franchise throughout Maryland, including acquisition of the corporate-owned club now at Port Annapolis Marina on Back Creek.

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Larry and JoAnna Goldberg to the Freedom Boat Club franchise family,” Freedom Boat Club president and CEO John Giglio said in a statement. “The Goldbergs’ strong business acumen, marine industry experience and focus on customer service, coupled with their long-term vision for Freedom Boat Club in this robust boating state, is in direct alignment with our goals for growth and expansion.”

The new franchise organization is named Freedom Yacht and Boat Club of Maryland. Dan Somerville remains aboard as general manager of the new organization. A second club at Fairwinds Marina on the Magothy River will open April 15, and multiple new locations are planned throughout the state.

The Goldbergs will offer new boats from 18 to 26 feet, including runabouts, center consoles, dual consoles, walkarounds, deckboats and daysailers.
