Boat Sitting

So what exactly is Boat Sitting ?

There are millions of Yachts, Power Cruisers and even Superyachts sitting in marinas all over the world. And for whatever reason, they do not move. The owners have all kinds of reasons for not using their boats.

  • No time
  • Change of financial situation
  • Have more than one boat
  • Too busy with their business
  • Change in life circumstances. The list is endless.

Disadvantages of leaving a boat in a marina
with nobody on-board.  

  •  Your boat starts to deteriorate and fittings start to corrode.
  • The barnacles build up under the water on your hull.
  • There is a great risk of theft or damage caused by people getting in your boat.
  • Your yacht or boat needs a lot of cleaning and work every time you decide to go visit your boat.

Advantages of having someone or a couple,
temporarily live on your boat.

1. It stays clean and ship shape (obviously, cleaning and general maintenance is part of the conditions of the deal)
2. Your vessel is protected from unsavory characters breaking in and trashing or stealing your pride and joy.
3. You can have various maintenance tasks agreed as part of the deal.
4. Peace of mind that someone is looking after your yacht while you deal with your land based obligations.
5. Ready to sail as soon as you return on-board without all the usual surprises, cleaning and fixing.

Boat Buddys

What are Boat Buddys ?

Unfortunately, most boats spend virtually most of their time in marinas. Some owners have lots of time, money & friends to go sailing or boating  with, but they few and far between. Most of us are limited to family commitments, work and time. We also have to do virtually all of our own maintenance, so as to keeps the costs down.

Every Boat Needs a Buddy

All Yacht and boat owners will experience at some time, these problems.

  1. Finding it difficult to get down to the yacht as often as you would like, and when you do find the time, you find there are lots of jobs to be sorted out or fixed, rather than going out on the yacht or boat..
  2. Finding it difficult to justify the expense of owning a yacht or boat when you don’t really have the time to use it as much as you would like.
  3. When you have the time, nobody else does.

What every boat owner needs is a Boat Buddy or two!

This is a FREE UK based site and BOAT OWNERS can advertise for Boat Buddys and People without a boat can advertise to become a boat buddy.
