More Freedom in Australia

The Freedom Boat Club division of Brunswick Corporation is set to open three new club locations in Australia this month (July). Located at Bobbin Head, Pittwater and Lake Macquarie, they will each provide direct access to the picturesque waterways north of Sydney. They complement the club location at d’Alboras the Spit Marina on Sydney Harbour.

The new clubs will be franchise locations led by Darren Vaux, managing director of Empire Marinas Group, president of ICOMIA and previous president of the Boating Industry Association in Australia, and Nicky Vaux, the Boat Princess and director of the Marina Industries Association, who have more than 40 combined years of marine industry experience.

“We are thrilled to continue our growth into truly stunning and popular yet accessible boating locations in Australia,” said David Kurczewski, general manager shared services Asia-Pacific for Freedom Boat Club. “We are confident in Darren and Nicky’s ability to expand marine participation in this market with their clear passion for the on-water lifestyle, and commitment to delivering impeccable service. We look forward to growing our partnership and supporting our members in the region.”
“One of our key drivers is helping people access the boating lifestyle and Freedom Boat Club is a world leader in this regard. With full member training, access to boats in incredible locations and affordable, flexible memberships Freedom really is boating re-imagined,” said Nicky Vaux. “As boaters ourselves, it’s great for us to be able to share the passion.”
“Freedom Boat Club creates a new, accessible and affordable pathway to the boating lifestyle for seasoned and first-time boaters alike,” said Darren Vaux. “What makes the Freedom model so compelling is that members not only have access to the outstanding range of boats available through the Brunswick brands, but also access to fleets of boats in more than 380 locations worldwide.”
