Frequently asked Questions
HOW MANY DAYS DO I GET OUT ON THE BOAT?
Your allocation of days will depend on the size of your share. For example, a 1/6th share entitles you to 57 days per year and a 10% share entitles you to 33 days. You also have unlimited standby days to enjoy, subject to availability.
HOW DOES THE BOOKING SYSTEM WORK?
Just log in and pick your dates! We’ve got a well-oiled, tried and tested online booking system. Days are split into both peak and off-peak, which gives all shareholders balanced and equitable usage, with the ability to book ahead as well as some freedom to be spontaneous.
CAN I USE MORE DAYS THAN I'M ALLOCATED?
Yes. You are entitled to unlimited standby days, subject to availability.
HOW MANY DAYS CAN I TAKE THE BOAT AWAY FOR IN A ROW?
It depends on the time of year but typically 7 days over the summer period and up to 10 days in winter.
CAN I SELL MY BOAT SHARE AT ANY TIME?
Yes. You can either choose to sell your share privately or you can choose to engage us as a broker. Either way, we take care of all the legal work and technicalities to complete the transaction on your behalf.
DO I NEED TO LIVE IN AUCKLAND TO HAVE A SHARE?
Not at all. In fact, a boat share is often the perfect solution for people who live outside of Auckland but still want to take advantage of the incredible boating that the Hauraki Gulf has to offer. We have shareholders from as far away as Australia, Wellington and Nelson. For out of Aucklanders the benefits of our walk on, walk off service really come into their own.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BUY MORE THAN ONE SHARE IN A BOAT?
Yes. You can either buy more than one share in the same boat, or multiple shares across our fleet.
WHAT IS PROVIDED AND WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
CAN I SWAP USE OF MY BOAT SHARE FOR USE IN ANOTHER BOAT IN THE FLEET?
No. As the shares are privately owned it is not possible to “swap”, unless of course, you are friends with a shareholder from another boat. If you’re looking for variety you might consider purchasing a share in two different boat types, perhaps a yacht and a power boat.
