SailTime Makes Boat Ownership EASY
SailTime will recruit and invite only well trained, responsible sailors on board your boat. With charter, rental and other programs many people of varying skills will use your boat and do not necessarily care for it as if it was their own.
In the SailTime program, only experienced SailTime members will have access to your yacht. In addition, your boat will be professionally maintained under our high quality yacht maintenance regime.
Furthermore, our unique SailTime e-maintenance program helps us to maintain the boats in real time, whilst our SailTime Scheduler ensures that you enjoy easy access to your boat when planning your personal sailing calendar.
Your boat will remain in the SailTime fleet from five to six years. At the end of the term you may decide to keep your boat, sell it, or trade it in for a new one and start a new agreement to continue sailing with SailTime. The choice is absolutely yours. Speak with your local base manager for more details.
We hold your hand throughout the entire process of purchasing and specifying your brand new 34-42ft. luxury Yacht,catamaran or motor cruiser. We work with you in reviewing the equipment aboard your new boat, ensuring it meets the discerning, high quality we incorporate as standard. When your boat is delivered, it is entered into SailTime’s professional vessel management program.
You will then enjoy worry and expense free sailing in your local sailing area. The income you earn from SailTime’s professional management program takes care of all the insurance, berthing, annual haul-outs, maintenance and operating expenses for up to six years. On top of this you enjoy the residual monthly income that you can apply toward your vessel finance.
SailTime provides affordable boat ownership
Live the dream of owning your own yacht, catamaran or motor cruiser?
Through the SailTime Owners program all the operating, maintenance, berthing, insurance and cleaning cost are covered via the revenues generated through our unique membership /skippered charter income.
As the owner, you receive all surplus funds generated. The boat will berthed at your local SailTime base or a base of your choosing and you decide how much time you want to spend sailing subject to pre-existing member commitments.
As over 115 existing owners around the world have found there are unequalled advantages to the SailTime Ownership Program with its practical, enjoyable and financial benefits.
Because SailTime takes care of all of the day-to-day operational expenses and time consuming maintenance you have nothing to worry about except when and whom to take out on the water!
Once you have provided the initial deposit for your boat, typically 20%, you need not worry about much else.
SailTime’s well-established relationships with yacht and boat manufacturers/importers can assist you to purchase (at favourable pricing) and place your vessel into the SailTime fleet.
