Boat-sharing is emerging as the latest trend for busy professionals who want to enjoy a weekend on the water without having to buy a vessel.

The idea was developed by the Pleasure Cruising Club, after research revealed many boat owners barely used their vessels.

Spotting a gap in the market, the Club started offering share boats which allow people to pay a monthly fee to take a boat from  16 days per year.

“We’re getting very much into the sharing economy. People are Uber-ing, Airbnb-ing … and boats are the next logical step,” Gary Freeman from Pleasure Cruising Club said

But for boating enthusiasts such as Trevor White, the cost is well worth it.

“It is really a hotel, because when you check out you don’t have to change the bed, you don’t have to vacuum the floor … you just leave,” he said.

“It’s a great set-up that really works well for us.”
