Ready to Join Our Team?

Most businesses require a huge capital investment. With SailTime, you can build your fleet using the Owner Member Programs, i.e. other people buy the boats and you simply sell memberships into each boat. You’ll still need to provide initial capital but you can easily build a large fleet without the levels of capital required from many other businesses.

The SailTime business model is rare since it does not require long-term leases of space, labor investments, large inventory, and equipment expenses. Talk to one of our SailTime experts and find out how SailTime is a winning proposition for all involved.

Please take the time to thoroughly review this website, it provides a wealth of information on our programs and how the business works.
