Ownaship makes it 19
Ownaship have had a very big year: we’ve taken delivery of five brand new boats, hired two new full time staff and moved into new offices in Westhaven Drive.
Our latest additions to our syndication fleet — a Rayglass 3500 and a Maritimo M51 — both arrived in the last two weeks, an exciting early Christmas present for the 12 lucky shareholders in these new syndicates.
This Rayglass 3500, named Manaia, is the seventh Rayglass 3500 in the Ownaship fleet, a remarkable achievement considering the 3500 was only released in early 2017. Simon Barker, Ownaship’s Owner & Managing Director, puts the 3500’s success down to a range of factors; the fantastic design and layout of the boat itself; the new 1/6th share split; the ever growing popularity of shared ownership; and of course him and his team’s hard work behind the scenes to pull everything together.
Salicia, Ownaship’s third Maritimo M51, also just splashed last week, having been shipped over from Maritimo’s Gold Coast factory just in time for summer. Like the rest of Ownaship’s new generation of syndicate vessels Salicia is to be shared between six shareholders, who have all been waiting patiently for their brand new boat to arrive.
One of the lucky new shareholders is not really new at all, having gone from a Rayglass 2500 to a Rayglass 4000, and then to a Rayglass 3500 before going on to the new Maritimo M51. That’s a classic tale — Ownaship has a fantastic record with shareholder retention, often seeing shareholders through from one of our smaller shares right through to something like the Maritimo M51. “It’s a privilege to have such a loyal base of shareholders, both current and past. They’re our greatest ambassadors, and we have them to thank for where we are today.”
What’s next for our syndication fleet? Number 20 arrives in just a few short weeks and will be Ownaship’s biggest syndication boat to date — a Fountaine Pajot MY40 Power Catamaran!
