The joys of boat ownership are obvious.Owning a boat is a perfect way to enjoy quality time with family and friends. But equally the demands that go with it are obvious, storage, maintenance, servicing, cleaning and valeting, launching and recovery or berthing: all are big responsibilities on finances and time.
CFlex Fractional shared ownership schemes make owning a luxury sports boat,fishing boat or family yacht affordable and practical freeing you to really enjoy your vessel and the time out on the water.A financially astute choice, making boat ownership a pleasure not a chore.
Shared ownership reduces your capital commitment, reduces your exposure to depreciation,reduces your annual running costs, These savings allow a management contract to be purchased which takes the hassle associated with ownership of routine maintenance,launch and recovery,valeting,winterisation away, totally freeing you and your family to "Arrive Play Walk Away" comfortable in the knowledge that everything will be ready for next time..
Cflex Fractional schemes balance shared time with shared costs. With only 4 owners per boat each enjoying 13 weeks use per year each owner gets equal opportunities for ample time on their boat. Very few of us are lucky enough to have time to get out on the water more than 20 times a year.Most of the time boats are sitting idle on a mooring or in a marina. Why pay for all that idle time. Share it and receive the benefits.
How it works.. 2 simple steps
1) Buy a share of your chosen boat model not the whole thing,significantly reducing your capital outlay.1/2 shares are available on selected new models and 1/4 shares in existing syndicates
2) Buy the CFlex annual management contract,giving you a hassle free system to really use and enjoy your boat. All the routine maintenance and servicing,mooring,storage and launch and recovery,comprehensive insurance,weekly valet,and winterisation is taken care of and there is even a guaranteed exit route to sell your share should you decide at a later date you want to leave the syndicate.
Half-share owners will be allocated 182 days annual use (seasonal terms and conditions apply)
Quarter-share owners will be allocated 91 days annual use (seasonal terms and conditions apply)
All time allocations are equitable and fair between owners.Each syndicate has a maximum of 4 owners, each owner getting the same allocation of time within the 3 season annual calendar.Owners book their time slots on a first come first served basis up to the maximum allowed for their share.Boat availability is easily checked using the CFlex on line scheduler which keeps track in real time of all the used and remaining slots.There is even a short notice use function on the scheduler which owners can use to book next day use if the boat is free without their allocation being used.Brilliant for those that can use midweek time. The system emails confirmation details of all booked slots automatically,shows when maintenance is being done,and even has all the tide times etc for each day.
Whilst CFlex Fractional are a shareholder in a boat syndicate all owners must buy the CFlex annual management contract,but once a syndicate is full of 4 owners,they are free to self manage by mutual consent and possibly reduce annual costs even further
Shared ownership is a compelling and astute way to enjoy and use a high quality boat.
