RBC mission statement: “To enable a lifetime of boating fun and cherished memories, offering unequalled simplicity and value.”
The Rex Boating Club (RBC) is a membership-only boating club providing the latest Chaparral, Sea Hunt, Sea Pro, Sea Ray, and other top quality boats for its members’ use so they can experience quality, safe, family fun while creating a lifetime of memories on Long Island Sound. At a fraction of the cost and absent the responsibilities of ownership, the RBC adds unprecedented value to the pleasures of boating. The club is managed by Rex Boating Club LLC, a Norwalk Connecticut family business that traces its Long Island Sound boating heritage back to 1936 when Louis J. Gardella founded Rex Marine Center.
Members do the boating, and the RBC crew does the rest – daily cleaning, preventative maintenance and repairs, seasonal decommissioning and commissioning, winter storage, waxing and painting, etc. We are Connecticut’s original Ownership Alternative, with boat rental virtually non-existent on LI Sound. Rex Boating Club membership includes a one-day, state-approved boating safety class to enable our members to conveniently obtain their Connecticut Safe Boating Certificate (SBC).
The RBC makes a boating lifestyle so easy. Members simply schedule their boating days through ScheduleMaster, our real-time scheduling system open 24/7, and arrive at our Docks ready for a great day Boating on the Sound.
