Jacksonville Beach Marine

Freedom Boat Club of Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and St. Augustine was established in 2009. We were awarded 2017 Franchise of the Year by Freedom Boat Club and voted 2020 Best Boat Club by the Jacksonville Award Program.

We are locally owned and operated by Kevin Seelig and Lisa the “Boatanista” Almeida. Kevin Seelig made Boating Industry Magazine’s 40 Under 40. In 2018, Lisa Almeida was honored at Boating Industry Magazine’s Women of Influence event.

We are founded by boaters for boaters. Regardless of experience level, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy our wonderful waterways.

Boating is not just something we do, it’s a part of who we are. It is at the core of our being. As owners and life-long Floridian boaters, it’s not just essential that people be out on the water, we want you to be in it and creating memories.
