  • Option to join any of our club events

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

Our unique points system provides really flexible boating. Fleet membership plans are allocated points and you spend the points on boats, events and more. Bigger boats use more points, as do weekend days and bank holidays. The boats you use and the days you choose determine how many points you need.

Our three example fleet plans work well for most PL members but we can also offer bespoke options for boat owners, business owners and anyone who wants something just a bit different.

Frequently asked questions

Can I customize my plan to fit me?

Absolutely. Our three example fleet plans cover the needs of 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.

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

Our subsidised induction service is tailored to your experience level and is a fun and informative way to get to know the club and the boats. We charge induction at £40 / £60 per hour (weekday / weekend). These are tailored but we generally recommend a full day to get started.

Can I use the club rib?

Yes. All fleet and training members enjoy access to the club rib with no booking charge - you just pay for fuel. The number of sessions you can book depends on your membership level - contact us for details.

Can I use my full annual points allocation 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.

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 and commitment for two years saves a further 5%.

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 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.

Are there any extra costs?

We provide fuel on the sailing boats (fair usage policy) but understandably we do charge for fuel on the motorboats, plus an hourly engine maintenance charge. For typical motorboat usage expect to pay circa £90 per day per engine for fuel and engine charges.
Skippers/ instructors can be hired for bespoke tuition at the rate of £240 per day.
Cleaning and Catering are also available at additional charge.

Am I insured?

Yes, all boats are insured for accidental damage. Members are liable for repair costs up to a maximum of £1500 (under 40ft) / £2,500 (over 40ft).
