Ever Heard of Boating Clubs in Ireland?

video-thumb-14There are a lot of people who tend to mistaken boat clubs with other boating enterprises meant only for recreational purposes. Most people don’t even know the difference between clubs, rental operators, boat dealerships, etc.

Boat clubs are, basically, designed for people who are looking to gain regular access to a fleet of different boats at an affordable price. Even though clubs might have different membership structures, they usually offer monthly memberships. What you get from a membership is unlimited access to their fleet. At the same time, the positive aspects of having a membership are that you don’t own any of the boats and don’t have to worry about storage or service fees.

The management of the boat club will take care of all of the storage and maintenance requirements for the boats. This means that you will always get access to boats that are ready to sail whenever you want to. And when you’re done, you can simply return the boat to the club and carry on without having to worry about anything else.

There are a lot of local boating companies that are regional too. They might not have so many options as the rest but will be just as advantageous instead of trying to buy a boat.

It is very important that you look into the amount of time you are going to be spending with your boat before considering whether you should buy it or not. Owning a boat might not be the best way to go, unless you actually plan on spending months at sea. Even so, fractional ownership through a boat club may be a better choice. What happens here is that you will be paying for a part of the boat cost and contribute to its maintenance and service without paying for all the costs.
