Where: Harbor Sailboat! Skippers will check in as early as 9:00 am, complete their routine ship’s report, and be ready by 10:30 for our meeting.

Beneteau Ownership – No Cost For 3 Years

2017 Beneteau Oceanis 31 “Open”

Oceanis 31

Harbor Sailboats is offering an extremely attractive ownership program that will pay 100% of the owners operating expenses for the first three years of ownership. The sailing club will pay the slip rent, insurance, maintenance, and pay the boats mortgage for the first three years. Owners simply make a down payment (or pay in full) and Harbor Sailboats will cover the rest!

The owner of this yacht will save thousands of dollars a month while still retaining 42 days of reserved usage per year and unlimited “stand-by” usage. The participating boat owner will have the luxury of stepping onto a fully prepared and maintained yacht and stepping off after enjoying a day on the water. Harbor Sailboats will manage all aspect of yacht ownership leaving more time for you to enjoy the boat and less time dealing with the logistics of ownership.

For some, the biggest advantage of fleet ownership is the tax benefits it may create. We strongly encourage you speak with a tax professional, but many of our boat owners have used Section 179 of the federal tax code to qualify for accelerated depreciation. This is the same tax benefits that farmers use to purchase tractors and construction companies use to purchase trucks. Your yacht will become the capital in your newly formed or existing charter business. Again, we strongly recommend you contact a tax professional for specifics on this program and how it may apply to you.

The Oceanis 31 “Open” is a fantastic family cruiser that blends easy sailing with luxury accommodations. At 31 feet, she is the entry level cruiser but can easily support the family for a weekend in Mission Bay or that week long trip to Catalina. A boat that is easy to control and a blast to sail, the Beneteau Oceanis 31 is a standout in this range.
