The Aqua Boat Club was such a success in its first year that it will be expanding in 2019.

The premise for the Mission Group venture was simple: Buy a membership and get access to one of the club’s three boats. This year, however, the plan is to add two more boats for use on Okanagan Lake.

The cost last year of an annual silver membership, which allowed you to reserve a boat Monday through Friday, was $6,000. The gold membership, worth $12,000, got you access seven days a week.

“If you don’t want to buy a boat for two or three hundred thousand dollars … if you become a member of the club and you can go boating, have access to brand new clean boats all the time without having any of the burden of ownership,” Mission Group CEO Jonathan Friesen said. “It’s actually a way, way cheaper way to go. I did it myself last year. It was so much fun.”
