Alternatives to Charter

Pure Latitude boat membership club is a great alternative to chartering a boat. Aside from offering superior value for money, membership can be far more convenient and flexible than chartering. Here are some of the reasons that many of our members tell us they prefer being a part of Pure Latitude.
Excellent availability
One of the potential problems of traditional boat charter is lack of availability. Typically, many boat owners want to actually use their boats themselves during the peak times of year. This means that they aren’t usually available when you want them. With boating club membership it’s different; whenever you want a boat you simply book it and it’s yours for that period. 

Membership ensures you have access to a wide range of boats from both sail and power, from a 21-foot RIB to a luxurious 42-foot Fairline so you’ll always be able to find exactly what you are looking for whenever you need it. You just can’t get that kind of flexibility at such amazing value anywhere else. 

Membership of Pure Latitude is also far more convenient than chartering. There’s a quick and easy online booking system so you can get access to the boat you want with no hassle negotiating on price or dealing with individual owners’ restrictions. 

It’s also true that when you’re having to charter a different boat every time, you don’t really have the chance to get used to sailing it. With Pure Latitude, if you wish, you can regularly take out the same boat to give you the chance to get to know it – this allows for a much more relaxed and fun sailing experience. Another advantage to membership is that you only need to go through one brief per boat, rather than having to listen to a briefing every single time you want to charter a boat.

The additional benefits
You’ll benefit from the advice and support from expert staff and other members of the club. Whenever you need help you can get in contact and the team will be more than happy to offer anything you need to improve your boating experience. 
The club also organises a range of social events for members ranging from races and flotillas to fireworks and air shows. 

At the heart of Pure Latitude you’ll find likeminded people who are just looking to enjoy great sailing at an excellent price. 
If you require any sort training, Pure Latitude can provide it for you. With a fully certified RYA training centre, the club can offer everything from small group training sessions to one-to-one tuition. This can lead to you being fully qualified to skipper a boat and progress to full individual membership. 

A range of locations
One of the reasons Pure Latitude is growing in popularity is the range of locations available to you. There are a wide variety of boats on offer across ports in the Hamble, Plymouth, Windsor, Conwy and Inverkip. Some members prefer to always use the same base, while others enjoy the flexibility of having access to a number of options in the UK.
