Freedom Boat Club recently announced its newest Club in Canet-en-Roussillon located along the Mediterranean coast. This new Club provides direct access to pristine waterways and more than five miles of picturesque beaches. With an established presence in the region since 2019, this announcement represents Freedom’s fifth franchise location in France and its 41st international location outside of North America.
We are thrilled to be adding this location to our growing footprint in France and Europe,” said Arturo Gutierrez, General Manager, Freedom Boat Club EMEA. “Canet-en-Roussillon is centrally located within one hour of the first foothills of the Pyrenees and the Spanish boarder, complementing our existing Freedom locations. With our newest location, we are providing more incredible opportunities for our members to go out boating along the Mediterranean coast in southern Europe.”
Located at Capitainerie du Port, the new Club will be led by franchise owner, Julien Bougheraba, who has a background in transportation and a lifelong passion for recreational boating. The new location is planned to open in early Summer 2023 to kickoff France’s boating season and will highlight the synergies across Freedom’s parent company, Brunswick Corporation, with Quicksilver models powered by Mercury Marine in its fleet.
“I have always been passionate about boating, and I love spending time on the water to create memories with family and friends,” said Julien Bougheraba, Owner, Freedom Boat Club of Canet-en-Roussillon. “When I discovered the concept of Freedom Boat Club, I was inspired by the opportunities to share my passion for on-water adventure with the local community and introduce the joys of the boating lifestyle through the Club model. I look forward to officially launching this season and welcoming many new boaters to the Freedom Boat Club family.”
