Axopar and Agapi Boat Club are to open their first joint membership clubs, with locations due to open in Spring 2024.
The first Agapi Boat Club was established in 2017 and the company says the partnership with Axopar will attract a new generation of boaters, providing an alternative way to go boating besides traditional boat ownership.
The new collaboration of Axopar x Agapi Boat Clubs offers a membership concept for boating worldwide, with new bases opening in Spain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Channel Islands, Chile and Mexico in 2024, complementing existing Agapi Boat Clubs in the Nordics, the UK, and the Mediterranean.
“The onboarding of all these new partners has already begun and apart from adding a lot of exciting locations, to the great benefit of our growing member base, we are also adding the knowledge and experience from these new partners with a strong local presence that share our mission on how to bring boating to a new dimension,” said Peder Asplund, founding partner and CEO of Agapi Boat Club.
Jan-Erik Viitala, founding partner of Axopar Boats, added: “Our new club concept aligns perfectly with our dedication to bring more people out on the water, encouraging shared usage of boats and a perfect way for our Axopar dealers to expand their business into urban mobility and subscription-based services.”
The organisations are currently undertaking a financial round to secure further investments into the fleet and new strategic partners which will enable the opening of the new locations planned for 2024 and 2025.
