Freedom Boat Club said it will add five club locations in Wisconsin this summer. Clubs will be added in Racine, Green Lake, Oshkosh, Madison and Milwaukee, parent Brunswick Corp. said in a statement yesterday.

The additions will bring the number of Freedom Boat Club locations to 13 in the Upper Midwest. FBC’s first Milwaukee location was in McKinley Harbor. The new Racine location is already open, the company said.

“We are thrilled to announce our growth in Wisconsin, one of the premier freshwater boating locations in the United States,” said Scott Ward, FBC vice president and general manager. “These announcements support our strategic vision of growth in the Upper Midwest, providing boaters in Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa the opportunity to experience Freedom Boat Club.”

The Wisconsin expansion follows Freedom’s milestone 350th location, achieved last week.
