Pure Latitude is the UK’s original boat and yacht share club.

Membership is like owning your own fleet, belonging to a yacht club and having access to a top class training centre – all rolled into one.

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

A fleet at your fingertips

Choose from 20+ sail and motor boats, with new ones added regularly. Sail from our two main bases, Hamble or Lymington, or from our additional bases at Plymouth and Windsor.

We guarantee flexible access to all boats. Over 15 years we’ve adapted and refined a fair system that delivers excellent availability of boats to all our members.

Fair and flexible access for all members

From the outset, Pure Latitude has been about building a sharing model that delivers greater flexibility, variety and training opportunities than single boat ownership.

Whenever you want to sail, or whatever ambitions you want to achieve, we’ll support you every leg of your voyage.

What our members say on google review

“Pure Latitude really have thought of everything. There’s a great range of boats and locations, excellent availability even in peak season, and lots of cruising and social sailing for those who want to join in..”

@ Jim S

“Pure Latitude has been a wonderful boating experience for my family and myself. A ‘human’ company that really cares about its members; we have loved our first year, and look forward to many more.”

@ Chris L

“Hassle free boating, expert advice, access to a wide range of boats, training and social events. And so much more affordable than owning your own boat. I wouldn’t be sailing if it wasn’t for Pure Latitude.”

@ Mark T

Join for the boats and stay for the experiences and friends

Our comprehensive range of shared events and 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.

The real reason we sail

“Silence – except for the gentle clanging of rope on the mast. Heading up on deck, still befuddled by sleep, it felt like we had entered another world. A paradise with blue water, rugged cliffs and not a soul in sight.”
