KYC BOAT SHARE 2019

A Program Providing KYC Members with Access to Club Boats !

New Share-A-Sailboat Program Offered by Keyport Yacht Club

The new Boat Share program at the KYC allows you and your family to use well-maintained, well-equipped club sailboats without the need to buy, insure or deal with the worries that come with owning a boat. You could even invite some friends to join you. Our boats are cooperatively maintained by Boat Share participants (who want to learn how to care for a boat), experienced club members and paid professionals. 

Currently the KYC fleet of Boat Share vessels will include Uptown Girl, an Ericson 26 with wheel and inboard diesel (July);  Skol, a fast Hunter 25 with tiller and outboard (June);  Pygmalion, a  classic J24 with tiller and outboard(AVAILABLE NOW!);  and even an  O’Day 17-foot-day sailor with tiller steering(?).

We are getting the boats ready to be available on the dates noted above, if you wish to Help speed up the process, contact Commodore Ed Mustra at Commodore@keyportyachtclub.com

The program runs from June 1, 2019 through October 12, 2019.

* OUR BOAT SHARE PROGRAM requires sailors to pass a proficiency test before they take the boats out.  Our aim is to ensure you can handle the boat safely and without damage to it or to other boats in the anchorage. You are QUALIFIED to use the KYC Boat Share boats once you’ve filled out the request form and received approval from the Committee.
