Beneteau Charter Placement

A charter placement owner at Harbor Sailboats is someone who is seeking to lower the costs associated with boat ownership while not sacrificing time on the water. By purchasing your new Beneteau and entering into an agency agreement with Harbor Sailboats, you can substantially reduce these costs while the yacht is managed and maintained to the highest standards. While not sailing, your boat will earn revenue that will be put towards covering cost like slip rent, insurance, maintenance and loan payments.

Save countless hours of your limited time by allowing our highly respected team to manage all aspects of your boat. We manage the marina slip rent, financing, insurance, maintenance, upgrades, bottom cleaning, etc; a full bow to stern team will surround your boat making it easier to enjoy time on the water.

 

 

How It Works : Revenue Sharing

The ownership program at Harbor Sailboats splits the boats revenue 50/50 between the owner and the club. While the cost of slip, insurance, maintenance, and loan are the responsibility of the boat owner, their portion of the revenue has proven to cover a significant amount of those expenses. On an annual basis, revenue will prove to reduce the overall cost of ownership by as little as 50% compared to conventional ownership.

Revenue is generated by member rentals, non-member charters, captained charters, cooperate events, and sailing classes. Harbor Sailboats is know as one of the strongest sailing clubs in California meaning your boat will be dropped into an established and predictable revenue stream. A pro forma is available on all eligible models listed below and can be requested by contacting the club.
