How Fractional Boat Membership Works
Easy, Hassle-Free Membership
Membership is a great way to get on the water sailing without ownership requirements. It has no long term commitment and cost less than owning your own sailboat. You would sign up for the sailing season with benefits of SailTime Plus for a whole year. SailTime functions a lot like a sailing club with boats in the 33+ foot range.
Having a membership is the perfect way to get on the water without ownership requirements. With SailTime, there is absolutely no ownership obligations; you will never have to worry about storage in the winter, launching in the spring, or any other maintenance associated with the boats, all for less than the cost of maintaining a boat. When you sign up for the season with SailTime Door County you receive the benefits of SailTime Plus. SailTime functions a lot like a sailing club with sailboats from both 33 to 38 feet.
Guaranteed Monthly Usage
SailTime offers guaranteed access to your boat every month. You can make reservations online up to one year in advance and can book additional free “as-available” sail times using your smartphone. “Classic” SailTime memberships allow a minimum of 7 sail times per month and can get additional free sail times when reservations are made within 36 hours of the start time. “Lite” memberships get 3 sail times per month and “Premium” memberships get 14 sail times per month. Premium members can take the boat for up to 7 continuous days and nights. With SailTime PLUS, members can rent boats at other SailTime locations at a mere fraction of the cost of regular bareboat chartering.
Being the newest SailTime members, we were anxious to meet other members and local sailors.
Owners, Bill and Suzie Wons, needed to check our sailing skills before giving us free reign.
Coincidentally, the Windjammer Sailing Club, was having a cruise called, “Where the Wind Blows” August 28-September 2. We were invited to join!
Roger and I loved the friendly people, the sailing ports, and love the boat, Alissa Joy.
We feel confident we made the right decision in buying a SailTime membership and look forward to spending more time on the water in 2022.
