Re: Buying a Boat in Singapore

Hi all,
Greetings!
I was looking for more information on boat ownership in Singapore when i came across this thread. Currently am without club membership or boat, but would like to learn more and work towards getting one soon.
I was considering SAFYC, as they have 2 club houses, but their membership jumped from $4000 to $7000.
My next consideration is Changi Sailing Club, currently their entrance is $5000. like the surroundings, but getting to it may be an issue for me.
Would really like to get more ideas and experience before committing.
If anyone looking for a crew for the weekends, i would be glad to help.
fairwinds!

Re: Buying a Boat in Singapore

safyc is 7500, and berthing is 12.25 per ft and there is conservancy as well. Last I heard there is a waiting list at Changi.

I'll be moving into CSC this weekend, yay! lots of helpful folks here, who will give good advice and guidance.

CSC is swing mooring, no finger piers. no electricity/water.

Re: Buying a Boat in Singapore

RSYC is about 15k shelf price, but cheaper on the transfer market.

They also do a 3yr term membership for $4500, renewable once (so effectively spreading the cost of the 15k over 6yrs.

In fact, almost all memberships are cheaper on the transfer market. There used to be brokers around who buy/sell them, also check the small ads. For instance, 1degree15 was going for about 14k earlier this year instead of the advertised 65k.

65k is a "feel good" factor for the boss ...

Go to International Paints and find the dealers in Sing. Ring Alan Koh, he will help you.

Re: Buying a Boat in Singapore

If you want international... you can go direct to their shop (not sure exactly where it is)... You can get a local brand called Oceanmaster which is actually pretty decent from a shop down in Jurong... Oceanic Link or something... you can google them also...

I've used their white epoxy gloss & it goes on lovely... also their clear pu paint on the floor... It's early days (painted in Feb), but have high hopes!

Hmm clever enough to target the local marinas, bit unexpected for Vivo!

Hi Big John, pardon my ignorance. But the price of 14K, does it include the transfer fees?

Thanks

Re: Buying a Boat in Singapore

Hi Gabriel

Singapore is changing the rules regarding crewing of Singapore licensed vessels. From next month Indonesian nationals will not be allowed. Malaysians will, but for some reason they are quite hard to find around here. I imagine they make more money with other jobs.

Regarding the transfer fees in One15, the club will charge it at the rate they think you should be paying. Quite a lot more, I believe, and you will have to negotiate with the member you are taking it from.

Might we meet you here in the club one day? Welcome to the forum too.
