Marine Club Membership

RESERVE | ARRIVE | DRIVE

Marine Club Membership allows you to enjoy the benefits of boat access, without the commitment of full boat ownership.  Simply Reserve, Arrive and Drive. If you are already a member BOOK NOW to reserve your RIB.

Membership Types

Becoming a member of the Marine Club will provide access to our fleet of Marine Club boats. We undertake all maintenance and preparation of the boats, launch and recover you and ensure everything is washed down and put away at the end of the day. You simply hop on board and are free to enjoy your leisure time out on the water.

The Marine Club offers two levels of membership.

PAYG Membership                                                                    £395 per annum

Pay a low annual membership fee and then pay a hire charge each time you reserve a boat.

Boat Hire Charges

  • Full day hire (10.00am-4.30pm) £275

FULL Membership                                                                £3950 per annum

Pay a one-off annual fee with no additional hire charges. Simply reserve a boat and off you go.

All memberships are inclusive of reasonable fuel usage (up to £100 per half day rental/£150 per full day rental) and the use of watersports equipment including skis, wakeboard and towable inflatable’s.

Joining the Marine Club

To join the Marine Club you must ensure you meet the following criteria;

  • Min age 25yrs
  • Hold the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate

If you do not currently hold the RYA Powerboat Level 2 certificate, please check out our RYA Training Page for RYA Powerboat Level 2 course dates.

Booking your First Session (Familiarisation)

The first Marine Club session includes some time ashore with one of our skippers, completing the application form and going through the rather dry but necessary terms and conditions of membership and your responsibilities whilst on charter. We try and keep this as comprehensive but also brief as possible before heading out on the boat to ensure you are happy with the controls and navigating the Swellies. When your instructor is happy, he will ask you to drop them off on the pontoon and you will then be free to enjoy the rest of your charter.

This first session for PAYG members is charged at;

  • 1 hour with an instructor                                            £220
  • 3 hours with an instructor*                                        £310

*If you completed the RYA Powerboat Level 2 qualification away from the Menai Strait and/or more than 12 months prior to joining the club you will be required to have the extended 3 hour induction
