Flexisail... A truly flexible approach

If outright boat ownership is not for you, for whatever reason, then other options are available to get you on the water such as the boat clubs that are springing up for motorboats or yacht charter programmes available both in the UK and abroad. One model that particularly catches our eye and might be of interest is FlexiSail’s offering for sailing yachts, based here in the UK.

Put simply the FlexiSail model involves either Ownership or Membership. An owner buys a yacht which is put into the FlexiSail fleet where she is shared with no more than a handful of regular members, the same members throughout the year.  The FlexiSail “Ownership with Income” model has a lot of appeal.


For the owner of the boat the benefits are very significant:

  • Guaranteed net income of 4% of the boats all up purchase price, all summer use with no loss of income
  • A small number of known vetted users of your yacht who treat your yacht as their own
  • Professional management with exceptionally high maintenance standards
  • All running costs covered including berthing and insurance as part of the ownership package worth up to £30,000 per year
  • An extensive fun social aspect with other FlexiSail owners and members




For the FlexiSail Member the benefits are also very attractive:

  • You have a true fixed cost sailing for less than the cost of berthing
  • RYA training is available, bespoke and taken on ‘your own’ yacht in your own time. You can build your own experience, knowledge, and qualifications before, perhaps, buying your own boat
  • There is an extensive social programme of events which are family inclusive, adding another dimension to your sailing
  • You only have a 12 month commitment
  • You can spend your leisure time sailing and not managing and maintaining your yacht

Does this sound interesting?

Hi Mark Just a quick note to thank you for the smooth handover of our new boat today.  Thank you for the excellent service you have provided - from our first meeting and the subsequent negotiations to arranging a sea trial and helping us spec the perfect boat - all handled in a friendly, efficient and professionally manner which has been greatly appreciated. The handover was very thorough and we had a cracking day out on the sea. Please pass on my thanks to Rob for all of the knowledge he passed our way - we feel well equipped to enjoy our new purchase. If you ever need a reference for Sea Ventures levels of service and customer care please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you soon. (January 2019) Jarrod and Dawn
