A popular boating membership scheme in Plymouth has expanded with a new boat after positive results from their first year.

Yacht Haven Quay, a dry stack marina and boatyard in Plymouth, launched the Plymouth Boat Club last year offering members a low cost way to get exclusive use of a brand new and professionally maintained motorboat.

Following a positive response, the club has expanded with a second boat being launched this spring allowing members to pick which boat they want to use. The new XS 650 RIB, named Quay Explorer, is fitted with a Mercury 150HP outboard and it is offers a safe and stable ride due to a deep V hull shape.

Manager Will Rahder says the Boat Club has a simple, basic premise; “We want to offer easy access to quality boats at a price that makes it affordable for everyone. It’s as simple as that”. Will continues, “Year one was great with new customers getting into boating and ex-boat owners returning to the industry using our first club boat, a 7m Beneteau Barracuda.”

The Plymouth Boat Club’s fleet have met the Maritime Coastal Agency (MCA) safety guidelines and all users are given training on the water. “Members just need to bring their family, friends and suncream” Will explains. “We’ll look after all the other elements that come with ownership such as maintenance, cleaning, mooring and storage so members are guaranteed a stress-free boating experience on a professionally maintained boat.”

In addition to that, Yacht Haven Quay is offering Boat Club members who progress to buying their own craft a generous discount on annual dry stack berthing. “Joining the club is a great introduction into the convenience of dry stacking, with secure indoor storage, and launch and recovery on demand 365 days a year. There’s no easier way to access our fabulous local cruising destinations such as Salcombe, Fowey, Burgh Island and far, far more.”
