New River Thames base for Freedom Boat Club

Boat club operator Freedom Boat Club is expanding its UK operations with a new location in Chertsey, just outside of London.

The new base at Bates Wharf Marina will provide members with direct access to boating along the River Thames.

“As a top boating destination in the region, we are thrilled to announce our newest location in Chertsey,” said Arturo Gutierrez, general manager, Freedom Boat Club EMEA. “This announcement reflects our commitment to executing on our strategic vision as we continue to expand our international footprint and establish a presence in top boating destinations worldwide.”

The Chertsey location will be part of Freedom’s Thames-Solent Hub providing members unlimited access to three locations in the region.

The base will be owned and operated by Richard Bates, a marine veteran with decades of experience in the industry, who is keen to expand the local boating community through Freedom’s shared access model.

“With decades of experience across the full spectrum of boat ownership, marina operations and services, I’m ecstatic to be joining the Freedom team and providing a new pathway for boaters to enjoy the on-water lifestyle,” said Richard.

“Freedom’s commitment to removing and delivering remarkable member experiences aligns with my passion of growing the UK boating community, and I look forward to a successful partnership with Freedom Boat Club now part of our wide range of portfolio offerings.”

The Chertsey location is scheduled to open on June 1 2024 with a selection of new boats ready for the summer boating season.
