Founded in 2001, SailTime is a boat-sharing service that allows users to share ownership of a boat through an annual membership fee.
While started as a service for sailboats, the company has added powerboats to its offerings. The company has more than 30 franchised bases worldwide, as well as a network of sailing schools, via bases that are certified American Sailing Association (ASA) and Royal Yachting Association (RYA) affiliates.
SailTime has partnered with Marlow-Hunter and, beginning earlier this year, Beneteau, to supply its boats.
Boating Industry talked to CEO Todd Hess about the company’s growth so far and its plans for the future.
