Each partner in a R Marine Flagship Riviera operated under the Boating Partnerships program enters to purchase a ¼ share in a company which then will purchase the boat. On this you will receive a title of ownership in proportion to the share you have purchased, protecting your equity in the motor yacht. In addition, our partner contracts have been specifically designed around the NZ syndicated ownership guidelines to ensure our clients have full control over their vessel.
All owners receive equal use of the boat with popular days and public holidays split evenly and the structure varies depending on the location and amount of owners. For vessels based permanently in one location, one quarter owners receive 84 days per year, plus unlimited standby days. These days are then divided between four 3 month terms.
Number of Owners
All vessels are limited to four partners or less with no exception. This gives owners more flexibility to use the boat and reduces the overall wear and tear on the vessel. We have implemented this rule in order to maintain our vessels to the highest standard and ensure our clients can get a real sense of ‘boat ownership’.
Our Boating Partnerships program offers:
Vessel Build and Options
From start to finish, owners are involved in the build process and can even visit the factory over in QLD. The Vessel specification will be managed by R Marine Flagship to ensure that the vessel is suitable for the use intended and to maximise the resale value at the end of the ownership term.
All new Riviera vessels come with a 12 month non-structural warranty and a five-year structural warranty. The majority of our partnership vessels are powered by the incredible Volvo IPS engines and drives. As standard, these come with a five-year extended warranty or 1,000 hours for smaller engines and 2,000 hours for larger engines.
Owners are required to complete an extensive training program including offshore cruising, night navigation, berthing, anchoring and operating all systems and equipment. Additionally, we provide local knowledge information and training in emergency procedures such as fires, collisions and running aground.
We understand you don’t use the boat every week and may forget some of your training, here at R Marine Flagship we provide a comprehensive vessel handbook including step-by-step instructions for use of all equipment and systems on board.
All partnership vessels are insured by a policy that provides a similar cover to a single ownership boat, however it also indemnifies each owner against the illegal acts of another owner. There are no cruising limits; it’s your boat so you can go wherever you like.
A standby day is one that is booked within 48 hours of an unreserved day. With smaller partnerships it is common for owners not to book their entire allocation of days per trimester, thus allowing for other partners to book under standby. All calendars have days remaining in addition to owners’ allocations and maintenance for use under standby.
All owners can log into our Partnership Platform and access their vessels online calendar to create, cancel and swap reservations, request popular days and contact their fellow owners. This system uses strict rules to ensure owners receive equal use of weekdays, weekends and popular days.
We run an honest and open book system with all running costs made transparent and divided equally among owners with Boating Partnerships receiving a monthly management fee. There are no tricks and no hidden costs. Each vessel has its own bank account and owners receive a quarterly bank statement that shows all money coming in and all money going out. Additional costs are those that are unknown (for example, fuel, cleaning and laundry). These costs are charged directly to the owner that used the boat meaning you only pay for what you use.
Boating Partnerships is dedicated to making your boating experience and lifestyle worry and hassle free. Whether you’re new to boating or an experienced skipper, everything is taken care of with tailored packages to suit your boating lifestyle. All our clients, whether you are a partner in a vessel or own your boat outright, receive a true walk-on/walk-off experience with many exclusive benefits. We provide our Marine Flagship 5-Star concierge and valet service, making a walk on / walk off experience for you.
Whether you’re an inexperienced boatie and want some advice before you head out or you’re a skilled skipper and need a hand to rectify an alarm or problem, our assistance line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long.
At Boating Partnerships we take pride in all vessels under our management and we ensure that all necessary maintenance is performed at the highest of standards. Strict preventative maintenance schedules are designed and followed to ensure all equipment and mechanical plant is ready for owners to use and serviced at the appropriate intervals, providing hassle-free boating. All required repairs and servicing are carried out by the local manufacturers’ dedicated mechanics and contractors to ensure warranties are not voided and the longevity of the equipment/plant.
We have extremely high expectations of our cleaners, so you can be sure your boat will be immaculate for your arrival. This high standard of cleaning is above and beyond the average and its part of what makes our owners’ experience stress-free.
Using high quality Riviera bedding, tea towels, bath towels and beach towels, we replenish linen after every use.
The majority of our partnership vessels are refuelled after every use to ensure that the amount you use, is the amount you pay for.
Leave the passage planning to us and come along for the ride with our experienced crew. Many of our larger management and partnership vessels are relocated to other locations away from their home port, so owners can experience new waterways and chase the endless summer.
