FAQ's - Plans and Pricing

Can I use my full annual points allocation to go boating in a single summer month?

No. A key facet of any shared use scheme is the ability to get boat at times that suit you – thus we carefully manage supply and demand to ensure good availability for all. Our seasonal booking calendar is an important tool in achieving this. Annual fleet membership points are allocated equally across three seasons (4 month blocks: High = May-August, Mid = Mar-Apr & Sep-Oct and Low = Nov-Feb) and they need to be used in the season to which they are allocated.

Is there a club joining fee?

Yes, There is a one-off club joining fee of £995 which applies to all new members and anyone rejoining after a break in membership.

Are there any extra costs?

Your membership includes fully equipped and maintained boats, home berthing, insurance, access to our event programme and much more. Additional charges apply as follows:

Fuel is included on sailboats and riverboats but metered and charged at cost on seagoing motorboats.

We make a charge per engine hour run. Sailboats £6/hour, riverboat and smaller motorboats £12/hour and larger motorboats £18/hour/engine.

Skippers are available for a points charge or at £255/ day

Accessories such as dinghies, outboards, spinnakers plus cleaning and catering options are available at extra cost.

Can I save money by paying annually?

Annual payment in advance brings a 5% discount. Multi year plans lock in current price levels. Contact us for details.

Can I share my membership with a friend?

Yes, we offer joint memberships at the extra cost of £50/month for each additional member that has independent booking access to the account. Get in touch to find out more and discuss whether this is applicable to your situation.

Can I customise my plan to fit me?

Absolutely. Our standard prices cover the needs of most members but we also offer bespoke options for anyone who wants something just a bit different.

Does the size of the boat, or the days I go boating, affect which is the right plan for me?

Yes, bigger boats cost more than smaller boats and weekend days cost more than weekdays. If you're planning to use our biggest boats and or mainly go boating at weekends, then we recommend a larger plan. Click on the 'Points charges' button above for further details.

Can I buy through my business?

Yes, we offer corporate memberships. Call to discuss how we can tailor a membership for your business.

Do you have ownership plans?

Yes, we offer bespoke arrangements for owners which can dramatically lower your cost of boating.

FAQ's - Competency and Training

How do I become familiar with the operation of the boats?

We recognise everyone is starting from a different position and it helps to think about induction and competency checking as separate activities. For efficiency and convenience, we expect you to “self induct” using our boat guides and spending some time familiarising yourself onboard. We will check competence on a “boat class” basis and once that has been satisfied you are free to induct and book that class of boats.

When you first join, we'll set up a day to walk you through our club processes, berth location characteristics and help you get into the detail of the boat systems, before checking your competency on your preferred boat classes. Further competency checks on additional boat types are charged at £75.

I'm a qualified day skipper but want to improve certain skills with further training. Is this included?

Yes, and it's a very popular service. Booking an instructor to help you improve specific key skills, complete an RYA training course, upskill on a new boat type, or get you and your crew working efficiently together can really help your boating become more enjoyable. Instructors are charged at 2o points or £255 per day.

Alternatively, you can join any of our training events - ideal for upping your game across a range of specific key skill areas. See our event calendar for more details.

I'm new to boating. Do you offer RYA training courses?

Yes, we are a recognised RYA training centre. To become a competent and confident skipper we offer a mentored training plan which includes experience building, your RYA day skipper qualification and a number of days skippering the boats. Get in touch for full details.
