Full flexibility to enjoy our entire range of boats, locations and events.

Fleet membership is ideal if you'd like to regularly skipper our boats with your own crew onboard. Our online booking system makes getting afloat easy and with additional access to a wide range of club events, boating has never been more flexible.

The right plan for you depends on the boats you prefer to use, plus how often and when you want to be on the water. Knowing these preferences, we'll build you a plan - an allocation of points per year to spend on booking boats and events. 


    "The range of boats and locations is great and makes Pure Latitude a long-term solution for me."

An expert mentor provides one-to-one guidance, advice and support throughout

We offer 3 main fleet memberships levels that work well for most PL members but can also offer bespoke options for anyone who wants something just a bit different. 
 
 

Fleet membership provides maximum flexibility. Access all of the boats, visit multiple locations and enjoy really flexible booking. Flexibility is achieved via our unique points system and your Pure Latitude online account.

The right plan for you depends on the boating you want to do, i.e. boat types, how often and when you like to be on the water. Knowing these preferences, we build you a plan - an allocation of points per year (allocated evenly across 3 seasons) to spend on booking boats or events. Fleet plans give you access to all our boats plus all our events. 

We offer 3 “reference” fleet plans: 

 

 

Our most popular plan, the Fleet 600, could provide a year’s boating that looks like any ONE of the following:

  • 25 - 30 days on our powerboats 18-24ft
  • 20 - 25 days on our sailboats 30-40ft
  • 15 - 18 days on our motor cruisers 30-42ft
  • OR 20 days on a mix of all the boats 

Bigger boats use more points, as do weekend days and bank holidays. Therefore the boats you use and the days you choose determine how many points you need. See our boat and event fact sheets for points rates per boat.

 

Choosing and Tailoring Your Plan 

Our standard plans work well but we recognize that everybody’s needs are a little different - so tell us what sort of boats and how often you want to use them and we’ll build a plan for you. We’ve learnt that most members manage around 25 days a year on the water, on their preferred boat types, occasionally enjoying something different. Many members also join a number of events every year from the growing and extensive range. 

To build your own personalised schedule from the example membership plans listed above please contact us for a boat points table or download our full membership brochure
