Nautical Boat Club opens Lanier Islands location

Nautical Boat Club opened a location in Lanier Islands, Ga. “We’re thrilled to be launching Nautical Boat Club, Lanier Islands,” Tom Gardiner, owner of Nautical Boat Clubs, said in a statement.

Gardiner was a franchise owner who purchased the company in 2012. “This location is a recreational trifecta — located on Lake Lanier, the most popular lake in the Southeast, at Lanier Islands, the most visited lakeside resort in the state and within the Margaritaville Complex, so our members will enjoy opportunities for world-class fun year round.”

Nautical Boat Clubs provide members unlimited use of a range of boats, including Bennington and MasterCraft models, and water toys, as well as valet service. Monthly dues cover all expenses, including insurance, maintenance and slip fees, but not fuel.
