Boat Club & Charter Boats

BOAT CLUB & CHARTER

THE DECISION ON WHETHER TO BUY A BOAT OR KEEP ON RENTING IS USUALLY COMPLEX. IT ULTIMATELY COMES DOWN TO A QUESTION OF COST AGAINST THE AMOUNT OF SEATIME YOU PLAN TO HAVE AND TO YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS AND EXPECTATIONS. THE ANSWERS ARE VERY PERSONAL AND MAY CHANGE OVER TIME. BOAT OWNERS MAY REALIZE THAT THE TIME SPENT ON THE WATER IS LESS THAN EXPECTED AND OCCASIONAL BOATERS MAY DISCOVER A NEW PASSION.

  • ARE YOU AN EXPERIENCED FREQUENT BOATER, A REGULAR OR JUST ENJOYING OCCASIONAL SEATIME?  
  • DO YOU ENJOY TAKING CARE OF YOUR BOAT OR DO YOU PREFER TO FOCUS PURELY ON THE TIME ON THE WATER? 
  • IS IT IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO PLAN YOUR BOATING BUDGET AHEAD? 
  • ARE EXTENDED TRIPS OVER SEVERAL DAYS AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT OF YOUR BOATING LIFESTYLE OR DO YOU PREFER DAY TRIPS OR WEEK-END EXCURSIONS? 
  • DO YOU VALUE THE POSSIBILITY TO HAVE DIFFERENT BOAT MODELS AVAILABLE OR DO YOU PREFER TO USE ONE TYPE OF BOAT THAT YOU GET TO KNOW VERY WELL? 
  • OR MAYBE YOU DO NOT HAVE THE ANSWER TO SOME OF THE ABOVE QUESTIONS?

THE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS WILL TELL YOU WHETHER A BOAT CLUB IS THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU OR IF CHARTERING OR OWNERSHIP IS WHAT BRINGS YOU THE SATISFACTION YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. ALTERNATIVELY, A MEMBERSHIP IN A BOAT CLUB WILL DEFINITELY HELP YOU TO FIND OUT WHAT TYPE OF BOATER YOU ARE.
