How much money can you save by joining Boat Club Trafalgar?

Let us show you how spending £8,600 on a boating membership can get you a whole lot more than spending £16,503 a year and getting lumbered with 'the same old thing' every weekend!
Ever since we launched Boat Club Trafalgar, people have been asking us to 'Show Them The Money'.  They know they want to get into boating, but they are not sure exactly of the best way to finance it.
So rather than having the same conversation again and again, we have done some research into what it costs to run a boat, versus, being a member of Boat Club Trafalgar.
Comparison – Owning a Boat vs Boat Club Trafalgar
We compared the costs of owning a new 7-8m boat financed over 3 years against being a Platinum Member of Boat Club Trafalgar for the same period of time.
Here are the costs of owning a new 7-8m boat for 3 years on finance (new boat price £64,000):
Item
Cost
Boat purchase (inc. 3 years finance)
£75,504
Maintenance (servicing and cleaning, etc)
£5,290
Insurance
£1,050
Storage (marina berth or drystack)
£10,926
Safety equipment
£519
TOTAL
£93,289

If after 3 years the boat was to be sold, taking into account depreciation there would be an estimated return of £43,780, making the cost of boat ownership over 3 years £49,509.
Now take a look at what you might spend to be a Platinum Member of Boat Club Trafalgar Platinum for 3 years:
Item
Cost
One-off joining fee
£4,400
Platinum Membership (£595 per month)
£21,420
TOTAL
£25,820

Yes, that’s right – it’s just £25,820

So, the costs of owning a boat vs joining Boat Club Trafalgar for a year are:
Boat Ownership
Boat Club Trafalgar
£49,509
£25,820
It’s an incredible saving of more than £23,000. That’s nearly HALF!
Now you know why people are making the decision to go with Boat Club Trafalgar.  It’s because there actually is a way of 'having your cake and eating it' when it comes to boating.
When you’re paying almost £18,000 just to store and maintain a boat over three years it’s got to be a serious consideration to buy our Platinum Membership instead.
And Boat Club Trafalgar works out massively cheaper than boat ownership when you take depreciation into account. So that’s the finance side taken care of.
