“Like New” Beneteau 31 Available for Fleet Ownership

Posted by on May 18, 2017 in Blog, Featured, News, Specials | 0 comments

Our Beneteau Yacht Sales partner, South Coast Yachts, have taken a 2016 Beneteau Oceanis 31 on trade and it qualifies as a rare opportunity to place a pre-owned boat into the Harbor Sailboats program.   The boat is by all accounts “new” with roughly 75 hours on her engine and a flawless interior. She currently sits with a full electronics package including a B&G touch screen plotter, wind instruments, depth, speed, GPS, VHF, and Auto Pilot. The interior is Alpi Mahogany with upgraded salon cushions and an open forward bulkhead that creates a more roomy interior.
Asking 129,000… When compared to the new boat delivered price price of 180,000, the savings are obvious.
A participating boat owner can expect roughly 60%-75% of the overall cost of ownership to be covered thought their portion of charter revenue. For more information or a detailed pro forma contact Harbor Sailboats Beneteau Professional, Keenan Hirsh. 619-417-3303

Harbor Sailboats Youth Sailing Course

Harbor Sailboats | (619) 291-9568   iSail@HarborSailboats.com   www.HarborSailboats.com

2040 Harbor Island Drive, Suite 104 , San Diego CA 92117


June 19 – 23, 2017 | 9a – 2p


From June 19-23 youth ages 7-16 are invited to learn the basics of sailing at Harbor Sailboats, located in Harbor Island West Marina. U.S.C.G. Captain and American Sailing Association (ASA) Licensed Instructors take students through the curriculum of ASA 101 Basic Keelboat. Over the course of five days, students learn the fundamentals of sailing and boating safety aboard a Capri 22’. Daily activities include on-the-water instruction and educational games. The week-long course concludes with a friendly race around the bay.

Harbor Sailboats’ (HS) 50 years of teaching experience is being extended to San Diego’s youth for the first time. HS boasts a roster of over 40 captains and instructors, all of which have extensive sailing history and knowledge. Many, like Keith Ericson, longtime friend and instructor for HS, are former Navy officers passionate about educating current and future sailors. Others, like Matt Sandoval, grew up on sailboats and have skippered around the world in such places as the British Virgin Islands and up and down the coast of California.

Sailing is an iconic sport that the entire family can enjoy. Harbor Sailboats is family owned and operated by Tom Hirsh and two of his sons, Kyle and Keenan. Each of them is a U.S.C.G. licensed captain, licensed yacht salesman and advanced sailing instructor. “I remember going to sailing camp as a kid,” says Keenan. “We spent our summers on the water learning to work together as a team and being educated about the environment. Now we sail together as a family every chance we get.” Wind and tide patterns, ocean conservation, and marine life are a few of the topics that will be covered in Harbor Sailboats’ youth sailing course.

The week long course curriculum covers ASA 101 Basic Keelboat. The ASA is an association of sailing schools, charter companies, professional sailing instructors, and sailors, with over 300 affiliated sailing schools located throughout the U.S., as well as in Europe, Japan, Central America, Taiwan, China, and other far eastern countries. To date ASA schools have certified nearly half a million sailors. Harbor Sailboats has been honored seven times with the “ASA School of the Year” award.

Contact Harbor Sailboats today to reserve a space. Call (619) 291-9568 or email iSail@HarborSailboats.com to give the gift of sailing to the child in your life.

Beneteau Ownership – No Cost For 3 Years

Posted by on Nov 19, 2016 in News, Specials, Uncategorized | 0 comments

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.
