How one Flagstaff Marine customer did it

Chartered Beneteau Oceanis 41.4 pays for itself

The most expensive thing you can do with a boat is not use it. Knowing this, Jeremy Nelson was considering a boat share Beneteau Oceanis 41.1 but decided against it. He found the rules around usage way too rigid. If he was going to buy a boat, he wanted it freely available to him. One day over coffee, Jeremy and his colleagues hatched a plan to go in on a boat together. 

Its perfect for us. We all use the boat whenever we can. The best thing we ever did was put it in the charter. The boat pays for itself!

We saw a great deal Flagstaff Marine had on a demo Beneteau Oceanis 41.1 and were sold. Having previous experience with SailCorp, we called to see if they were keen on adding an Oceanis 41.1 to their fleet. They were over the moon. Their clients love Beneteau yachts. The 41.1 has a wide stern, making the rear cabins quite large. And it has a swim platform. Its a good-looking boat. And even better to sail.
