Example pricing and usage study – we can customise plans to suit you

Our unique points system provides really flexible boating. Crew membership plans are allocated points and you spend the points on boats, skippers and a fantastic range of events. The right pan for you is dependent on the boats, days and events you choose.

Our three example crew plans work well for most PL members but we can also offer bespoke options for anyone with a keen racing interest or indeed anyone who wants something just a bit different.

Frequently asked questions

Can I customize my plan to fit me?

Absolutely. Our three example crew plans work well for most PL members but we also offer bespoke options for anyone who wants something just a bit different. Get in touch for a bespoke proposal.

Can I use all my points to go boating in a single 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.

Can I use the club rib?

Yes, but you'll need to book a skipper for your preferred dates.

Is there a joining fee?

Yes, £495 one-off club joining fee applies to all new members and anyone rejoining after a break in membership.

Can I save money by paying annually?

Annual payment in advance brings a 5% discount. Contact us for details of how much you can save with a multi year plan.

What extra costs are there ?

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.

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

Generally, when you join events you’ll need to pay for your food (either through kitty or your own purchase) and if you’re heading further afield you’ll need to cover your own travelling costs to and from the boat.
