PRESS RELEASE – Boat Club Trafalgar Launches at Southampton Boat Show

If you’re looking for a smart way to enjoy boating then you might want to check out Boat Club Trafalgar, the brand new members club from the owners of Trafalgar Wharf & The Drystack in Portsmouth.

Billed as the ultimate in convenience, it’s probably the easiest way to get on the water without the hassle of owning your own boat. 

Jonny Boys, MD of Boat Club Trafalgar, explains the new launch.

“There are lots of people who don’t want the hassle and upfront cost of owning their own boat, they simply wouldn’t get full use out of it. We’re offering something that will appeal to boaters that want zero hassle and maximum flexibility.”

“Members get unlimited use of a fleet of brand new premium boats all powered by Yamaha engines. They can zoom over to Cowes in a Jeanneau Cap Camarat 7.5 or treat clients to a day out in a Ballistic 6.5 RIB. They can take their friends and family out for a birthday treat on a Jeanneau Merry Fisher and have a romantic overnighter the following week on our Finnmaster Pilot 7.”

Boat clubs are big in the US where people describe them as “the country club on water”, and it’s easy to understand the appeal when you take into account the normal ownership routine.

“Our members know that our team do all the work, that includes storing, cleaning, fuelling, maintenance and taking care of insurance. Club membership is about having a great experience and making the most of your leisure time.”

Boat Club Trafalgar builds on the success of The Drystack and offers the ultimate turn-up and go service. Jonny explains how the membership works on a day to day basis.

“Using the 24hr smart phone app members can instantly check availability. You can book up to four boats at any one time so you can easily plan ahead.  It’s zero hassle, maximum joy.”
Boat Club Trafalgar membership is not much more than the annual cost of storing your own boat and there are other significant benefits too.

 “As well as the fleet, you’ll also get all of the tuition you need, including RYA Level II Powerboat training as part of the membership. Even if you have never been on a boat before, we’ll get you handling one with confidence and skill.”

As Jonny says, Boat Club Trafalgar is the ultimate convenient way of getting on the water.
“We’ve got a great location at Trafalgar Wharf, which is ideal for the Solent. We’re just off junction 12 of the M27. We’ve got great boats. We’ve also got a great team that look after members’ every wish. 

“It’s the smart choice for intelligent people who want an effortless way to have fun.”
