Hello,

I am looking for a person interested in a 50% partnership on a new 34-35ft cruising sailboat in Annapolis, MD.

Please contract me privately by PM.

Thanks.

You might have better luck posting notes on boards at nearby marinas or asking around.

Everyone here is just going to tell you partnerships don't work:rolleyes:

Actually I won't tell him partnerships won't work in Annapolis. I had one for five years on my 38 footer. By the same token I had known that partner for 15 years and we had done business together in a number of capacities, and so understood and trusted each other. I do agree that you might do better on Spinsheet or some other local source.

Thanks Jeff,

I am planning to post and add in Spinsheet but that only comes out once a month if I am not mistaken? Any other leads as far as local bulletin boards and forums?

Best,

Terry.

Rather than going through the brain damage of finding/setting up a shared ownership arrangement, it might be wiser to look into (click on) existing Fractional Ownership Programs; No?

Two thoughts on the above;

Spinsheet does have an online marketplace, which I think you will be posted if you take out an ad. Most yacht clubs have a old fashioned bulletin board where you may be able to post an ad.

The other issue has to do with Bank Loans. It really created complications to attempt to get a loan as partners. What actually happened is that I took a loan for my part of the ownership and was listed as the owner. My partner paid his share in cash, with his financing coming from other sources. We had a detailed partnership agreement which including the requirement to file a lein on the documentation showing him as the creditor rather than as a partner. The Insurance policy had a rider which listed him in some form as a frequent user of the boat.

Thanks Jeff, I'd be looking for a partner that would bring half of the boat value cash, don't want bank/loans involved in this type of deal.

Best,

I'd rather have a bank as a partner that another heretofore unknown individual.Over the past half century, I've had many partners that were "banks."I wouldn't try to finance a boat having 2 unrelated owners as principals.

I'm with svHyLyte - and would recommend Pinnacle Yachts. They offer a 'lease share' rather than fractional ownership. We had a 40' Jeanneau with them in Chicago in 2011. Excellent setup - great service and a terrific value (my lease was less than the slip fees I would have had to cough up to the City of Chicago for a 40' slip at Belmont Harbor).

Want more sailing than a single share? Buy more! Then enjoy how someone else maintains the boat - all you need to do is sail. Pinnacle has a 37' Jeanneau with available shares at Annapolis Landing.

No connection to Pinnacle - just a happy customer who wishes he was back in Chicago.

Thanks Sparrowe, Pinnacle's leasing program is indeed an interesting one and may fill my needs just fine. Too bad they only have one boat in Annapolis, MD, looks like a great way to go for Chicagoans.

Terry,

I tried to send you a PM, but I'm not sure it went through. I'd like to talk to you about this.

Thanks,
David
