The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club and the Smart Boating Group have recentlyformed a strategic partnership designed to offer members of the Club an opportunity to share in the ownership of a syndicate yacht.
Shared boat ownership is becoming increasingly popular and is appealing to people wanting an alternative to full boat ownership due to time constraints and financial barriers. For many people it makes their boating dreams possible.
From the Club’s perspective it will increase membership numbers with all owners of the syndicate yacht berthed at the Club required to be Full Members of RPAYC. With more members comes greater participation around the Club including racing and cruising as well as increased activity in our food and beverage operation and boatyard.
Martin Lyall, Co-Owner / Director of Smart Boating Group said, “I’m thrilled we’ll be able to extend our shared boat offerings to The Alfred’s. The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club is a premium location and one in which SMART Boating can grow a substantial yacht fleet. The acceptance of a shared economy means the Club can keep pace with today’s changing world”
Craig Evans, General Manager of the Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club stated he was, “also excited at the prospect of welcoming new members to the Club, and of equal importance is the fact that from a participation perspective, these syndicate-owned boats will be actively campaigned in RPAYC’s racing programs, specifically the inshore and twilight programs as well as the Club’s cruising calendar.”
The initial yacht to be based at the RPAYC is TWILIGHT, a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 349 with shares in that syndicate available immediately.
