What's New at SailTime
Read the latest news and updates from SailTime.
SailTime offers new boats, lots of opportunities to get on the water, great locations, scheduling flexibility, and more… but membership can be even better than what it looks like on paper.
Winter is finally over, and the weather is perfect to smell the fresh breeze and go sailing with friends and family. Or better yet, learn how to sail and take control of the helm!
With the winter season in full force across the U.S., SailTime base owners in the Northern States are fully engaged with their off-season activities.
“There’s nothing else like this in Portland,” Jason says of the boat-sharing program. “It’s a double-edged sword. I don’t want to share the secret, but if I get all my friends to join, we’ll end up boating together anyways.”
When it comes to buying a boat, or making any large purchase, the idea of whether it is a good investment is not a cut and dry issue. Sometimes, an investment may not make sense financially, but it could offer other benefits in your life.
Even if the initial cost of a resort vacation is a few hundred dollars, once you add up all the extras (amenities, tips, and drinks), your vacation can cost thousands of dollars per person. For the cost of a week-long trip, you can provide a fun and luxurious weekend getaway once a month for your entire family. A full sailing season at SailTime starts at only $6,000 a year. This gives you guaranteed weekend time every month on a luxury yacht. A SailTime membership is a great activity that you can share with your friends and your entire family.
What could be more ideal than spending your summer on the water? Many families scrimp and save to rent a beach house for a week, sail away on a five-day cruise, or take a quick (but expensive) flight to a faraway lake resort. But, you can have all the benefits of a summer on the water — and spread out the fun this season — with a SailTime membership instead.
Sharing companies, like Airbnb, UBER, Zipcar, and SailTime, have changed the way goods and services are provided and consumed. These platforms bring in a new market of owners who plan to share their assets to generate revenue. They also provide consumers a first-class, ownership-like experience for less cost than the traditional buy-it-to-use-it norm.
The mystery of the sea has been calling to sailors for thousands of years. These dreams are fueled by watching sailing races, hearing stories of friends’ sailing adventures, catching a glimpse of sailboats in the background of a movie, driving over a bridge on your way to work while seeing sails gliding in the breeze, and, of course, from your first time on a sailboat!
As we dream of setting sail for the 2020 boating season, our thoughts also wander to the many dockside restaurants you can get to on a SailTime boat. Sure, many argue sailing is more about the journey than the destination. But, when your destination is a dockside restaurant that promises good food and fun, that can make the journey even more enjoyable.
