Harbor Sailboats has inventoried a brand new 2018 Beneteau Oceanis 31 for sale into the ownership program and it’s ready for immediate delivery. Unlike other fleet boats, this Oceanis 31 will be placed under an extremely rare guarantee program that will pay 100% of the ownership cost for the first 3 years while still delivering liberal sailing time for the owner.

After completing the purchase through Harbor Sailboats, the owner will enter into a 3 year agency agreement that will have the club pay the boats slip rent, insurance, maintenance, and loan payment every single month! Essentially, the only cost for three years is a down payment on a loan (typically 20% or in this case roughly 39k) and Harbor Sailboats will take care of the rest. If a boat owner chooses not to finance, Harbor Sailboats will still make a lease payment equal to what a typical loan payment would be. Today’s typical boat loans are for 20 years, with 20% down, and rates around 5.5%. An owner will enjoy regular sailing on their own yacht while saving thousands of dollars per month and countless hours of management.

After 3 years the owners have the option to keep the boat in the fleet for two more years under the normal 50/50 revenue split, the option to sell through the Harbor Sailboats brokerage, the option to keep privately at the marina or trade in for a new Beneteau!

Under this very special agreement the owner has 42 days per year of reserved usage and unlimited usage when book on the same day. Of the 42 days, 14 of them are available May 15-Septermber 15 with the renaming 28 days available September 16-May 14 .

A little about the boat…

The Beneteau Oceanis 31 is the entry level cruiser in the Oceanis line but don’t let her LOA fool you. The 31′ has an incredible amount of room in the cockpit for the entire family while also delivering a spacious salon and master cabin. Her interior will sleep 4 with one head and shower. The modern design makes short handed sailing simple with all control lines leading aft and top electronics from B&G.

Who is this program right for?

This program is a perfect fit for someone looking to get into boat ownership while not braking the bank. Allow Harbor Sailboats to cover almost 70K worth of expenses while you slowly acclimate yourself to ownership. Perhaps you are retiring in 3 years and this is a way to get ahead of the cost and take full advantage of more free time 3-5 years from now.

Another fit would be a family who wants to own a larger Beneteau one day but is a little intimidated by getting into a 45′ right now. This is an inexpensive way to work towards that goal while building those skills as a family.

Someone who needs help reducing his/her tax liability for 2017 may find this to be an extremely attractive option. We strongly recommend consulting a tax professional but this purchase may qualify for benefits under Section 179. Regardless of your reason, one must first want to own a boat before considering this option. Compared to private ownership, this program is an obvious savings in cost and time.
