Freedom Boat Club Hosts Soft Opening for Rocketts Landing Residents

Post Date: 05-14-2021

Are you a Rocketts Landing resident who enjoys boating and wants to explore how to get on the water without owning one? Freedom Boat Club is ready to help you find adventures on the river this summer! As the newest business in our community, Freedom Boat Club docks on the James River at Rocketts Landing to start their season this Memorial Day holiday. And they’re hosting a soft opening exclusive to our residents to help you discover all the club has to offer.

Downtown Richmond, Virginia, is just down the James River from Rocketts Landing.

 Soft Opening Event

 On May 22, 2021, Freedom Boat Club will host their soft opening on the dock. Team members will greet residents at the fuel pad, which is at the bottom of the stairs between the Boathouse and Conch Republic restaurants.

  •  Meet the Team

Rocketts Landing residents will have the opportunity to talk with the boat club team and meet Membership Executive David Prestia. You can explore the club’s benefits and answer any membership questions you have, as well as what boating on the James River has to offer.

  • Go for a Boat Ride

Freedom Boat Club will have four new boats for you to check out, which are all 2021 models: Key West BR210 with a Mercury 175hp outboard, SeaRay SPX21 bow riders, and a Bennington Pontoon boat. You’ll be able to go out for a 15-minute ride with the team and explore a taste of river adventures.

The marina is just below our community's restaurants The Boathouse  and Conch Republic.
