Yacht Charter Inverkip

Inverkip Alternative to Chartering

Pure Latitude is a boat membership club that provides a fantastic alternative to chartering in Inverkip. As a wonderfully flexible option that offers great value, membership of the club means you’ll have access to a boat all year round from the Inverkip marina on the River Clyde and you’ll never have to worry about the high costs of ownership or the complications of chartering. 

Availability

One of the most annoying aspects of chartering is not being able to get the boat you want at the right time. The owners of the charter boats often make use of their own boat during the most popular times of the year, so it can often be very challenging to hire a boat during peak periods. And when you can, it may also be at an extortionate rate. 

Pure Latitude offers a system that allows you to get the boat exactly when you want it. Simply book the boat online for a specific period and it’s completely yours during that time. There’s also a fixed monthly fee so you’ll never have to worry about overpaying at peak times. 

No destination restrictions

Another frustration with chartering is that specific charters will place restrictions on where you can sail or how far you can go. Pure Latitude does not have strict rules on your journey – you’re free to take the boat wherever you please as long as you are back in time and tell the club if you’re planning to go more than 20 miles from the base.

With access to the amazing lochs nearby as well as a range of lovely ports in easy reach, it’s easy to have an amazing time no matter where you’re going. 

Convenient alternative to charter

Our members often say that the convenience is one of the most important aspects of membership of Pure Latitude. The straightforward online booking system makes it easy to book the boat without having to worry about negotiating a sensible price or dealing with owners’ different rules and regulations. 

Pure Latitude also cuts out a lot of the formalities associating with chartering a boat. You only ever need to attend one briefing per boat, so that gives you more time doing what you actually want to do: getting out onto the water. Taking out the same boat regularly means you get used to the vessel’s idiosyncrasies too. 

Additional benefits of membership

The club takes the time to organise a range of social events for members. You can come and join in at races and flotillas to get the chance to meet other likeminded people. Remember that Pure Latitude also offers a range of training options. So those who can’t sail can start on a learning membership before progressing to full membership.

If you ever need help you can call on the club’s expert staff or even get guidance from other club members who are usually more than happy to provide advice from their years of experience. Don’t hesitate to get in contact if you need assistance.
