Shared Boat Ownership

We believe that the boating lifestyle should be available to everyone. That’s why we made our Shared Boat Ownership Scheme as simple and cost-effective as possible.


Owners purchase a 25% share in their chosen boat, so each of our boats have four equal owners. All 4 owners have access to their boats for 13 weeks of the year, giving each owner a minimum of 1 week in every 4.

Contractually, every owner is guaranteed their boat for one week in four. However, owners can swap weeks if they’re unable to make the most of their allocated week, all of which is managed by us. In addition, if owners want to check the availability outside their boating schedule, we’ll do our best to find an available boat within the fleet. This scheme means you can enjoy all the fun of real boat ownership without the hassle.

Boat Management Services

With our Shared Boat Ownership Scheme, you get more than just a highly spec’d boat. RIB Shack Marine will take care of all boat maintenance, providing you with a full and comprehensive boat management programme.

Your boat will be cleaned, fuelled and checked at the start of each owner’s week, giving you more free time to enjoy your investment with complete peace of mind from the moment you arrive at your boat to the moment you leave. The management agreement is for a minimum of 3 years, after which the boat or your share in the boat is sold and the net proceeds paid back to the owner(s).

Our Comprehensive Boat Management Programme Includes:

Complete boat management

This includes; dry stacking/berthing, engine servicing, full insurance cover, warranty management, and a valeting and refuelling service.

Dry Stacking/Berthing

Unlimited lifts at our main base at Saxon Wharf, Southampton. Berthing at other home bases. Includes use of all marina facilities.


Each boat has comprehensive cover, including public liability insurance.

Engine Servicing and Warranty Management

Servicing is carried out in line with manufacturer’s recommended intervals.

Breakdown Cover

Sea Start marine breakdown assistance.

Valeting and Refueling Service

At the start of each owner’s week, the boat is valeted and will also be refuelled if necessary.


Choose your boat, Choose your location, Choose lifestyle

Slide Southampton Hamble Hythe Lymington We operate predominantly in the Solent area but are flexible with locations and can offer home bases from: SOLENT AREA

We understand that some of our customers may want to operate their boats from alternative locations, ie. Salcombe, Dartmouth and Falmouth Bay purely to satisfy holiday requirements.

No matter how little you plan on using your boat throughout the year during your allocated time, our cost-effective scheme ensures that you will have guaranteed access to the boating lifestyle when it suits your schedule.

This is our third RIB Shack boat . Over the last 9 years Colin, Helen and the team have provided such an efficient and friendly service. The shared boat concept is a convenient and cost effective way of owning a Rib and getting onto the water. We love spending time on the water with friends and family exploring the Solent and having picnics or lunches

Shared boat ownership through RIB Shack is a brilliant concept - marinas are full of unused boats, which is both financially and environmentally inefficient. The team takes care of all the hassles of boat ownership, from insurance and servicing through to cleaning and incidental repairs, and will deliver the boat wherever you want it on the Solent. We are enjoying the amazing Axopar 37 for a similar ownership cost to a boat half the size!


I am really delighted with RIB Shack. The deal with RIB Shack gives me all the access I really need to an awesome boat at a fraction of the cost on a lock and leave basis - ie they take it away and look after it. The team are always available to help out and have been fantastic in finding me a boat even when it was not my week. Such a brilliant formula and so well managed by RIB Shack. Thank you!
