Pure Latitude, based in the Solent, is the UK’s original boat and yacht share club, founded in 2007.

From the outset, Pure Latitude has been about building a sharing model that delivers greater flexibility and variety than single boat ownership. Members have access to a range of boats and locations, and avoid the supply restrictions that come with use of a single asset.

We support our community of boaters with networking opportunities, events and training programmes. It’s boating, but better.

Today, our core principles remain: flexibility, availability, support and community.

Choose from an entire fleet of quality sail and motor boats

Part of the joy of belonging to a boat club is having the flexibility to enjoy different boats, as your mood suggests, your destination advises, or as your skills improve. With Pure Latitude, you really can.

Over 15 years we’ve adapted and refined a fair system that delivers excellent availability of sail and motor boats, in a range of locations, to all our members.

Our point-based system ensures you can get out on the water whenever your meeting is cancelled, your family descends, or adventure calls.

Arrange a private tour to view our boats, meet the team and ask questions.

Join for the boats and stay for the experiences and friends

All our members have one passion in common – a love of boats. If you can’t wait to get out on the water, come join us. We’re a very relaxed and welcoming bunch.

Our comprehensive range of training opportunities will provide a clear pathway to your goals, whether that is skippering your own boat, brushing up your skills, or gaining RYA qualifications.

And if you choose, you can do all this with the support and camaraderie of fellow members.
