Fractional Catamaran - No Boat Blues

So heres the dilemma. Own 2 homes and can't sell either to move on to our dream of a Cat ownership. So have lemons make lemonade right? Been reading about Fractional Ownership and saw a mention of a "Club" type ownership to test the waters so to speak. Not interested in purchasing a portion of a Cat at this time. Most of the info I've found for "Clubs" is for Cruiser types and not Cats. Anyone know of a Cat Charter co. in the BVI's, or FLA vicinity that offer a "Club" type ownership program?

Not sure I can help but I do know there are many boat clubs in Florida. I do know they aren't cheap to join though and don't know how many of them have cats. Im not sure what the difference would be between a fractional ownership of a cat and a cat "club" would be. Do you? Both, I assume, would limit the amount of time you could actually spend on the cat. The fractional ownership might provide you with a little revenue stream. Why can't you sell your houses? Maybe at a discount just to get them off your plate? Good Luck!

From what I've read, a Club is more of a lease option for a short period of time. A fractional ownership you're actually buying into the boat for an extended run. The clubs I've seen have only been for large yachts and cruisers. We live in a tourist area and housing market is very slow. Can't really drop our home prices any lower than we have already. With two teens not independent yet, only have 2-3 months available for cruising right now. have another month on the market, fingers crossed. Thanks for the response!
