What is Yachtshare?
Yachtshare is a yacht syndication program that offers boating enthusiasts the opportunity to own a share of a luxury yacht. By sharing the costs of purchasing and maintaining a vessel, syndicate owners can enjoy the freedom of the boating lifestyle without all the hassle of normally associated with boat ownership.
How it works?
Sharing is easy. Buy a share in your yacht, learn how to use it and just go sailing. Yachtshare takes care of all the rest!
Step 1 - Purchase a share in a syndicate
You can purchase a 1/10th share in the yacht of your choice. Other Share Options are available including double shares, half-shares or mix and match combinations. With a range of vessels to choose from, there are options to suits all kinds of sailors. To give you the confidence that you are choosing the right vessel for your needs, you can inspect the yachts at our regular open days, request a sea trial or book an appointment for a fleet tour. Contact us to find out more.
At the heart of the Yachtshare program is a comprehensive set of legal agreements detailing the rights and responsibilities of syndicate owners. The agreements protect the interests of all owners as well as ensuring that the yacht is operated and maintained in a safe and effective manner.
Step 2 - Learn to sail
Yachtshare provides you with professional RYA accredited sail training when purchasing a share in a sailing yacht. Motoryacht purchasers undertake a Safe Boating program specifically designed for their vessel. All owners undertake two days of training and induction. This ensures you and your fellow owners can all safely and competently operate the yacht. The training is suitable for first-time sailors as well as the ideal refresher for experienced skippers. Additional training is available on request should an owner required it. Throughout the year, Yachtshare runs refresher courses and advanced sailing and docking workshops to build on owner’s skills and knowledge.
Step 3 - Make a booking
As an owner in our Yachtshare Ten program, you are guaranteed a minimum of 33 days sailing per year. Bookings can be made and changed through Yachtshare’s online booking calendar. The calendar system is designed to provide fair and equitable access to the yacht for all owners. View our FAQ page for more details on the Yachtshare calendar.
Step 4 - Have Fun!
All you need to bring on the day of your booking is food, drink and clothes. Everything else you need for an enjoyable trip on the water is already on the yacht. The yacht is prepared by our service team prior to your booking. Your yacht will be provisioned with fuel and water and ready to go cruising every time you arrive at the marina. Our vessels are equipped with crockery, cooking utensils, safety equipment and all the essentials for great adventures on Moreton Bay and beyond. You are the captain so you decide on the destination. Enjoy all the fun of owning a yacht, without all the hassle.
Step 5 - Step off
On returning to the marina, you simply tie up the boat, take your clothes, food, rubbish and personal items and lock the vessel. Our cleaning team will arrive the following morning to clean and prepare the yacht for its next outing.
Step 6 - Start planning your next adventure!
Once you have departed the marina, the only thing left to do is start planning for your next sailing adventure!
