New Wave Club - What is a Boat Club / Jetski Club ?

Updated: Nov 30, 2023


Owning a Boat or Jetski – The Questions?


Want to get on the water with friends or family this summer? Going out and buying your first boat or jetski may sound like a simple experience but there are plenty of aspects to consider. What type of Boat or Jetski would suit you best? When considering this you should think about what type of boating or jetskiing you are planning on doing? Keeping it local or planning adventures further afield. How many people you would typically look to take out? Is it something you are planning on doing all year round? New or Secondhand?


So you have decided what to go for but then you realise there are plenty of more things to consider? The biggest one of all being where you are going to store/moor it (at this point we will pop in a quick note to say our annual memberships commonly come in cheaper than the Marina storage fees alone). How to keep it maintained, so it works when you want to go out. You need to learn how to safely operate your vessel on the water. With a never ending list of questions, where do you start?

On many peoples minds is also the cost or, more commonly, the ‘perceived’ cost of getting out boating / jetskiing which commonly becomes the biggest barrier to continuing with this journey. So, what is an alternative?


New Wave Club combines a Boat Club and Jetski Club


Boat and jetski clubs are organisations that bring together enthusiasts of watercraft to share their passion, knowledge, and experiences. These clubs may be focused on a specific type of watercraft (ie. Jetski or Powerboats), or they may cater to a wide range of boating interests.


The format of a club works in a simple format: You pay a monthly or annual fee and in return you get access to a fleet of fully kitted, safe and maintained vessels to use as your own for a certain amount of times a month. Simple. Most clubs will bring you up to a standard for driving their fleet as part of the onboarding process. Such as completing an RYA Level 2 for Boating and/or a Personal Watercraft Proficiency Course. Once you are all set up: book your session, have a fun day out, fuel up and enjoy the rest of your day.

Boat clubs and jetski clubs offer numerous benefits to their members. First and foremost, they provide the boats. As well as, a sense of community among boating enthusiasts. Members can connect with like-minded individuals who share their love of watercraft and water sports. This community can provide valuable support, advice, and encouragement to members.

In addition to the social benefits, boat and jetski clubs often offer a range of activities and events. These may include, fishing events, group cruises, and social gatherings. These events provide members with the opportunity to hone their skills, compete against other boaters, and enjoy the company of other enthusiasts.


Another key benefit of joining a boat or jetski club is access to resources and information. Many clubs offer educational resources, such as boating safety courses and instructional materials on maintenance and repairs. Members may also have access to discounts on equipment, insurance, and other boating-related products and services.


Benefits


Membership Boating and Jetskiing is not only a great way to connect with other watercraft enthusiasts, but they also offer numerous benefits that you simply cannot get from owning a boat or jetski on your own. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider joining a boat or jetski club:


1. Cost Savings: Owning a boat or jetski can be expensive. Not only do you have to pay for the initial purchase or lease, but you also have to pay for maintenance, repairs, fuel, and insurance. When you join a club, however, you can share the costs with other members.


2. Access to a Variety of Watercraft: When you own your own boat or jetski, you are limited to just that one vessel. When you join a club, however, you have access to a wide variety of watercraft. This can be especially beneficial if you want to try out different types of water sports or activities, or if you want to upgrade to a more advanced or expensive vessel without having to bear the full cost.


3. Shared Knowledge and Expertise: When you join a club, you gain access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise from other members who are experienced boaters and jetski riders. You can learn about the best places to go boating or jet skiing, how to maintain and repair your vessel, and how to improve your skills and techniques. This can help you become a better boater or rider and enhance your overall experience.


4. Community and Socialisation: Boating and jet-skiing are often seen as solitary activities, but when you join a club, you become part of a larger community of like-minded individuals who share your passion. You can connect with other members, make new friends, and participate in group activities and events. This can make your boating and jet-skiing experiences more enjoyable and fulfilling.


5. Safety and Security: When you join a boat club, you have access to a range of safety and security measures that you may not have on your own. Clubs often provide boating safety courses, first aid training, and emergency response services. They may also have secure storage facilities for your watercraft and equipment, which can reduce the risk of theft or damage.


To Summarise


Joining a boat or jetski club can provide you with a wide range of benefits that you simply cannot get from owning a watercraft on your own. From cost savings to access to a variety of watercraft and shared knowledge and expertise, there are many reasons why joining a club is the smarter choice. Whether you are looking to dip your toes in the water, so to speak, or you are looking for a hassle free on water experience; a Boat / Jetski Club may well be the right thing for you.
