Membership Plans Available

A sailboat is “shared” by a limited number of Members and one Owner Member who
each are guaranteed, but not restricted to, at least three-fourteen sail times every month, depending on membership. Additionally, each sailing Member is entitled to unlimited “as-available” use on a 36-hour notice at no extra cost.

Members design their own sailing calendar to sail as little or as much as they want, using our online, real-time scheduling system.

Members can make instant sailing reservations or plan up to 60 days in advance and

can even request to swap sail times with other Members if they so desire.

Members have the ability to arrange extended sailing vacations by planning in advance.

Sail Ventures has four Membership Plans. Each plan has been designed to accommodate the different factors that dictate how our members wish to utilize their yacht. Whether it be budget, experience or lifestyle. Membership dues are determined by two factors: the actual value of the yacht chosen by the member and the amount of guaranteed time the member wishes to have aboard their chosen vessel each month.
Each Plan offers a fixed number of cruises per month scheduled by members themselves, a carry-over and borrow-forward feature for planning extended cruises, and unlimited extra cruises "as available".
