Share a Boat 

Fractional sailing programs or shared use programs began with private pilots that wanted to fly but couldn't justify the expense of owning and operating the aircraft. Like flying, boat ownership has many added expenses beyond just the cost of the boat. By sharing a boat you maximize the use of the boat while lowering the cost.

         A boat is shared with six members.  Each member is guaranteed a minimum of three weekend sailing sessions per month and 60 sessions per season. The online I-Sail reservation system manages usage for each member. Members are allowed unlimited "as available" use of the boat when it is not reserved within six hours of a session.

         Sessions are time periods from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM or 6:00 PM to 11:00 AM. Sessions can be combined for overnight trips, weekend, or weekly use. For example, you may decide to enjoy an evening sail taking the boat from 6:00 PM and returning any time before 11:00 AM, the next day - that is one session. 

         Scheduling sessions is easy, log on to the Port Sailing, I-Sail reservation system and pick the days or sessions you want the boat from the calendar.

         Members use the boat as if it was their own, but do not own the boat. You may bring unlimited guests and family. Membership may be shared by two partners, when listed on the agreement, and after completing a checkout sail.

         We ask that you clean up after yourself when done sailing and remove any  garbage. Port Sailing will clean the boat weekly, refuel it and add water to her as needed. The boat is fully equipped and ready to sail. 

         Join when you want. Although the boat is available for use April 1- October 31. Your agreement is for twelve months. For example you may start in July and end your agreement in July of the next year.

         You may pay monthly or save $100 when you pay in full.  A $500 deposit is required and refundable at the end of agreement. A three month advance payment is due when you sign up to use the boat.                          

         Our 2002 Beneteau 361 is in "like new condition". With a roller furling main and head sails she is easy to sail for a 36 footer. Equipment includes VHF, a CD player, autopilot, 12 volt refrigerator/ freezer, propane stove, GPS, radar, chart  plotter, power anchor winch, charts, piloting books, and a fully equipped galley. Just bring your own personal items and food.

         We offer a free three hour checkout sail to familiarize you with handling the boat. Members needing more assistance should complete the ASA Basic Coastal Cruising course held at the sailing school. 

         We take care of all maintenance to the boat. The deposit is held for damages to the boat or loss of equipment. We repair sails or canvas and other items needing service as normal wear and tear to the boat.
