"I must say it is a joy to deal with you and your folks. Stacy and I do not have a strong nautical background, and you and your team always go out of your way to make our experience very enjoyable. From having all the equipment ready, to giving friendly advice on the proper way to drive the boat and dock (especially dock), we could not ask for a better group of people. We are looking forward to many more happy days on the water."

IRMO, South Carolina – For 15 years, lake lovers in the Midlands of South Carolina have appreciated and supported the Lake Murray Boat Club for its ability to make boating fun, easy, and affordable. As the state’s first boat club, the organization feels its 15-year milestone is the perfect opportunity for an update – including a new name – while continuing to offer members superior value, extraordinary service, and awesome memories.


“I want to thank our members, staff, and supporting industry partners for 15 years of success out on Lake Murray – and a boatload of wonderful memories,” says boat club owner/operator Jon Dukes. “We’re changing our name – officially becoming Nautical Boat Club® - Irmo – but keeping everything our members love: experienced staff, a wide variety of new boats and fun toys, and hassle-free boating!” In celebration of this milestone, the Boat Club is offering special membership pricing to folks attending the upcoming Columbia Boat Show – scheduled for February 7-9th at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds.


Founded more than two decades ago, Nautical Boat Club® was a pioneer in the boat-club business. The company’s Boating Country Clubs® are a simple alternative to buying a boat – for about one-third of the cost of purchasing a single boat, members get unlimited use of a diverse selection of brand-new boats, all-you-can-use free water toys, and the convenience of valet boating service. Monthly dues cover all expenses except for gas – including insurance, maintenance, and slip fees.


Dukes has owned and operated Lake Murray Boat Club – now Nautical Boat Club® - Irmo – since the club’s 2005 inception, and is eager to offer the Boating Country Club® experience to even more of his neighbors. All members receive unlimited boat use, access to a full fleet of fabulous boats, guaranteed reservations with an availability rate over 97%, complimentary use of water toys, and premium dockside valet service.


“Our top priority has always been to provide outstanding customer service for our members,” Dukes notes. “We take care of all the details so that you can enjoy the best part of boating – being on the lake, and making memories with your family and friends!”


Nautical Boat Club® - Irmo will remain conveniently located at Lake Murray Marina at Marina Bay. Dukes also owns and operates two other South Carolina locations - Nautical Boat Club® - Lexington, which celebrates its 5th summer on Lake Murray this year, and Nautical Boat Club® - Mount Pleasant, which is celebrating its 3rd summer on the Charleston waterways.


“It may be chilly out now, but there’s no time like today to join Nautical Boat Club®,” concludes Dukes. “We invite all Columbia-area boating enthusiasts and lake lovers to call us today and make an appointment for a tour – the boats are shiny, the lake is lovely, and beautiful boating weather will be here before we know it!”
