Freedom Boat Club acquired the New York franchise operation and territory, parent company Brunswick Corp. said in a statement.
The transaction includes six Long Island locations — Glen Cove, Lindenhurst, Freeport, Northport, Port Jefferson and Port Washington — and corresponding territory rights for all of Long Island, New York City (excluding Staten Island) and areas of Westchester County.
Last month, Freedom bought its fifth corporate-owned territory, in Chicago, as part of a plan to expand that segment of Brunswick’s business. Other territories include southwest and southeast Florida, Raleigh, N.C., and Charleston, S.C.
“Growing our footprint in top boating communities such as this one is consistent with our continued growth plans,” said Cecil Cohn, Freedom Boat Club Network president.
According to Freedom, memberships at the New York locations have grown nearly 30 percent annually during the past three years.
