Justin Caskey’s Story:

The Rex Boating Club (RBC) is a membership-only boating club providing the latest Cobalt, Chaparral, 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.

Rex Boating Club, LLC BBB Business Review

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. The boat is always clean, fueled, ready to turn-the-key and go. RBC staffers are ever-present, most helpful, and supportive, with fuel your only extra cost.


RexBoating Club offers several Individual, Family, Shared, and even Corporate memberships, with special plans for weekday boaters. RBC membership is the simplest way and best value to enable you to learn, experience, and enjoy the pleasures of boating on Long Island Sound.
