Sailboat Rental Vs. Ownership

Up there with golf, sailing is one of the more expensive hobbies. The expense begins with purchase, and only goes up from there. After buying a boat there are regular maintenance expenses like haul-out, painting, winter storage in cold locations, maps and charts, navigation equipment, marina fees and more. Like with country club members, sailors expenses continue even when they aren’t playing.

For the occasional sailor, sailboat rental can be a good option. Marina fees and upkeep are paid by the company that owns the boat. Depending on the size boat rented, fees can be very reasonable. Some rental agents require renters to buy insurance, protecting both parties in accidents. More info: Sailboat Rental San Diego
