Peter Hogan remembers taking his two young children out on a boat for the first time and seeing the excitement on their faces. Peter Hogan remembers taking his two young children out on a boat for the first time and seeing the excitement on their faces. Now, nearly 20 years later, the children, who are in their late teens to early 20s, get excited when Hogan mentions going for a boat ride. “They still love boating,” he said. With that ideal in mind, Hogan launched the Prescott Boat Club earlier this year.
“It’s like valet boating,” he said. “We take care of it all, so you can go out and have a good time.”
And he means it. Hogan explained all one has to do is call ahead for a reservation. When they arrive, they will find their selected boat filled with gas, along with water toys (skis, wakeboards, kneeboards and tubes) and vests provided. When one returns, staff members will help them dock and unload the boat.
Currently, The Prescott Boat Club has seven boats, ranging from fishing boats, tri-toons and bow riders. The boats range from 20 to 26 feet in length and have features such as plush seating packages, IPOD connection and carpeting. Hogan added one of the boats is pet-friendly. “We want the boats to be used,” he said, adding they are typically reserved in shifts.
