Charter Placement

Charter Placement with Harbor Sailboats

We have inventoried a 2023 Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 exclusively for Charter Placement. Contact Beneteau Sales Rep. Keenan Hirsh for details!

An owner with Harbor Sailboats is someone who is seeking to lower the costs and responsibilities associated with boat ownership while not sacrificing time on the water. By purchasing your new Beneteau and entering into an agency agreement with Harbor Sailboats, you can substantially reduce these costs while the yacht is managed and maintained to the highest standards. While not sailing, your boat will earn revenue that will be put towards covering costs like slip rent, insurance, maintenance, and loan payments.

Save countless hours of your limited time by allowing our highly respected team to manage all aspects of your boat. We manage the marina slip rent, financing, insurance, maintenance, upgrades, bottom cleaning, and more; a full bow to stern team surrounds your boat making it easier to enjoy time on the water.

How It Works

The Charter Placement program at Harbor Sailboats splits the boat revenue 50/50 between the owner and the club. While the cost of slip, insurance, maintenance, and loan are the responsibility of the boat owner, their portion of the revenue has proven to cover a significant amount of those expenses. On an annual basis, revenue generated will reduce the overall cost of ownership by more than 50% compared to conventional ownership.

Harbor Sailboats will take care of all cleaning, fueling, pre and post sail inspections, marketing, payment collection, slip agreements, insurance agreements, and overall management of the boat. We also provide an industry leading maintenance team at half the cost of a private maintenance program.

Revenue is generated through club member rentals and sailing classes. Harbor Sailboats is a members only facility, meaning those chartering your boat have come through our professional instruction program or have demonstrated superior boat handling prior to being approved for charter.  Harbor Sailboats is known as one of the strongest sailing clubs in California, ensuring your boat will be placed into an established and predictable revenue stream.

Furthermore, owners maintain a flexible usage schedule that can be customized to your needs. Sail your boat as often as you’d like, while generating revenue when the boat would otherwise be tied to the dock. If you desire to own a new Beneteau for a fraction of the cost of traditional boat ownership, Charter Placement with Harbor Sailboats is the answer.
