Until recently, the redneck yacht club has been one of southwest Floridas best kept dirty little secrets. The redneck yacht club is an 880 acre mud hole in the middle of Florida. Its a muddy slice of heaven where big boys come with their toys to get dirty Some people come out here on selected weekends and play in the designeated mud holes with no intention of taking a shower for the entire weekend. But lately the club has been getting a lot of national exposure "We are getting world wide attention which is a little scary" said Kellie Durate, the Director of Marketing for the club. Big names like the Discovery Channel and Columbia Sportswear are helping put this place on the map. Shows Like My Big Fat Redneck Wedding and Burt the Conqueror have both shot episodes here.
This weekend is no exception. "In the last two weeks, we have had five different production companies approach us about doing a reality show" said Durante, Which means that the next television celebrity could be found right here in Charlotte County " They have network interest from 3 different networks that want to make the redneck yacht club a reality show" Durante said on Friday. Which means that southwest Floridas dirty little secret may be out .
