We are the ideal solution for anyone who is looking to get into boating in greater Kansas City area. Whether you're a boating veteran or someone just starting out, we provide a complete hassle-free boating experience for you, your family, and friends!

I'm not sure I'll use No Coast Boat Club enough to justify a membership.
As a member, you'll actually find yourself going out on the water more than if you owned your own boat. Without having to worry about cleaning, storage, launching, towing, and maintenance, you can focus on spending more time with friends and family on the water!
