Clipper Motor Yachts has recently come on-board with Boat Equity to provide its customers with more options to get out on the water. Managing Director, Brett Thurley, mentioned that there are many boat share options on the market but none really compare to the model that Boat Equity has produced.

“We chose to align ourselves with Boat Equity because the process is simple for the boat owner and everything has been considered. With a detailed system and no fixed annual maintenance contracts or high management fees you can’t really go wrong. Our owners will pay their ongoing maintenance costs at cost and are also free to buy and sell their shares as they wish without being locked in.”

It is also the market place for boat shares, providing transparency and a dependable system that allows owners to buy and sell shares on the same terms as an entire boat.

“Another great benefit of the Boat Equity system, it allows us to syndicate any boat.”

If you have not been using your current boat as often as you’d like but don’t want to give up the opportunity to do so, why not consider selling shares? It also allows you to reduce annual costs and release some valuable equity, while maintaining your boating lifestyle.

When it comes to using your boat, everything is managed via a flexible and easy to use online booking system that allows owners to log in, update or access information about their boat. Also making the system fuss free, is the Syndicate Owners Agreement that provides owners with protection and peace of mind as well as a contractual responsibility to other owners.

“For those that have an open mind to the benefits of sharing, we trust you’re as excited about this new appointment as we are and look forward to helping you in the near future.”

Positioning itself as the prominent Queensland agent for the popular boat sharing system has also coincided with relocating the sales office into bigger premises next to the Gold Coast City Marina administration building.

As result, Clipper will immediately be offering ownership equity in the new 2014 Hudson Bay 32, 34 and 39 models.

These superbly styled sedan cruisers are crafted for the buyer who wants something with a little more class and individuality over the production sports cruiser. Each boasting a flared hull and tumblehome transom in the Newport, Rhode Island tradition, these European built boats invoke a traditional exterior profile with a European flair and internally contemporary décor with classic, hand crafted, Aniegre wood cabinetry and trim.

Innovative features include a sunroof, extendable cockpit awning, spacious outdoor entertainment area with bbq, fridge, L-shaped cockpit seating with table and an overhead rain shower.

The models feature single diesel shaft-drive power and planing hulls for exceptional fuel economy and reliability and will run between 18-20 knots.

A quarter share is available for each model with ownership starting at $75,000 for the 32, $95,000 for the 34 and $125,000 for ownership in the 39.
