How Does a Fractional Boating Membership Work?

You as a “Member” will select a particular boat to operate, based on size, price, and availability. You will use the same boat every time as if it were your own. In fact, many members refer to their assigned boat as “my boat,” which means they are familiar with it and share in the “pride of ownership”.
Each boat has a maximum of 8 equivalent “Classic” memberships, which distributes the available time equally among Members throughout each month. You simply use the web-based calendar to select the times you want to sail, and your boat will be ready when you arrive. Once at the marina, you will inspect the boat to be sure it is ready, using the automated “Embark” system. Then go sailing, being sure to return in time to ready the boat for the next member.

 

SailTime membership is easy, hassle-free, and much less expensive than boat ownership!

Guaranteed Sailing

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. “Premium” memberships get 14 sail times per month and 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.

Annual Memberships

A fractional sailing membership to SailTime gets you more time on the water for less money!

Member agreements are structured as annual contracts, allowing you to join anytime during the season and still be ale to get a full season of sailing.
