“Will never go back to solo ownership”

I’ve been in a smaller Oewnaship Rayglass 2500 for 3yrs & it works – crunch the numbers & the ease. Will never go back to solo ownership.

an amazing experience that we have loved sharing with our friends and family

My wife and I have had the pleasure of being owners with Ownership for a few years now. We started in the Rayglass 2500, then progressed to the Rayglass 4000. A couple of years later the Rayglass 3500 was introduced and we upgraded to a 1/6th share in that boat. After a year Simon told us he was going to arrange delivery of a Maritimo M51 so we quickly jumped at the chance to be involved.
Since its delivery in October we have had some fantastic trips away to Great Barrier, Kawau Island and around Waiheke. It has been an amazing experience that we have loved sharing with our friends and family. The way the time allocations and simple walk on walk off system works, boating is a real pleasure. Ownaship keep our boat perfectly maintained and immaculately clean at all times leaving us the time to optimise our boating. Owning a boat through Ownaship gives us the opportunity to own shares of a boat that we would not want to own outright ourselves and certainly wouldn’t want to spend all the time and expense necessary to keep it in perfect condition.

“Had an amazing Day. So Happy to be a part of ownership”

“…the best boating experience possible. you will not be disappointed”.

I first meet Simon Barker and the Ownaship concept at the boat show where they were showcasing their new Mustang. I had been day dreaming about owning a large boat for some time. There are a few “shared” boat operations out there, but the fundamental and unique appeal of Ownaship to us was that you have an actual equity position in the boat, without the concerns and direct costs associated maintenance, insurance, berthage, etc. It is truly walk on and walk off.

“…The most convenient and hassle free way to enjoy your boating activites.”

I have been involved in the Ownaship scheme for a couple of years now and based upon my experiences during that time, I would have no hesitation in recommending this scheme to anyone as the most convenient and hassle free way to enjoy your boating activities. Joining the scheme with a share in Ten Percent (Rayglass 2500) back in early 2008, myself, friends and family have enjoyed many days and the occasional overnight adventure on this fantastic boat in and around the Hauraki Gulf.

“…An exceptionally easy and enjoyable boating experience.”

Christine and I are members in the Ownaship scheme and have owned a share in the Rayglass 2500 for almost a year now. We had been looking for some time for a boat that would give us access to safe family boat for cruising around the Hauraki Gulf and were at the point of purchasing outright our own Buccaneer 635 Excess when we literally stumbled across the Ownaship concept. From the moment we stepped on board Ten Percent we knew we had found the boat for us and what a pleasant surprise to find out that we could actually afford a boat of Ten Percent’s size and fantastic configuration at less than a quarter of the price of our original choice.

Lachlan and his team go out of their way to make sure our boating experiences are hassle free and it has been this way for us since day one. The convenience and security offered in walk on walk off boating from the Oram’s Marine dry stack, combined with a clean and fully fuelled boat ready for us to go every time make for an exceptionally easy and enjoyable boating experience. We have no hesitation at all in recommending the Ownaship concept to any one who is looking for an entry level into an exceptionally well appointed boat without the high capital outlay and maintenance that is required in outright ownership of a boat of similar size. Now …all I have to do is convince Chris that we must upgrade to the new Rayglass 4000 and the wider Gulf and even more comfortable over nighting will be well within our reach. You are most welcome free to call us you want any further information on our experiences as Ownaship members.
