FRENQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

WHAT IS NAUTI-CLUB ?

Nauti-Club is a non-profit association founded by 3 enthusiasts founders. Our goal is to make water sports accessible by making boats available to users. We do not “hire”, we do boat-sharing.

BOAT-SHARING, WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

As its name suggests, boat-sharing is mainly a sharing system.

Therefore, we limit the number of users per boat according to the number of weekend days available or remaining during the season. With an average of 63 weekend days and public holidays available during the season, each boat can therefore accommodate, for example, a maximum of 8 users per boat with 7 weekend days each, i.e. 56 days which allows a certain flexibility.

With boat-sharing, we share the pleasures and joys of using a boat, and we also have to share the sorrows, especially, and for example, when the boat is immobilized due to repair or damage.

CAN I TAKE THE BOAT ALL DAY?

Yes, we do not rent, we do boat-sharing. You are free to use the boat at your leisure from 9am until sunset. Having said that, remember to think about other users, if you know that you are not going to use it during the day, please reserve the time needed so that someone else can come out after you. Use your common sense.

WHAT IS THE COST OF A BOAT?

Between mooring costs, maintenance costs, wintering, insurance, expertise, etc ... owning your own boat is expensive (without counting the cost of bying the boat) on average CHF 5,000 to CHF 6,000 per year for a small boat. At this price, each owner must add amortization of the purchase price. For example, a standard second-hand boat that can accommodate 5 to 7 people costs on average 30,000.-. A new boat of the same size varies between 40,000.- and 100,000.-.

During the 1st year, an owner will have spent an average of 30,000.- for the purchase of a second-hand boat as well as around 5,000.- for running costs, i.e. at least 35,000.- !

In the nautical world, every owner knows the following sentence:
With my boat I was happy twice: when I bought it and when I sold it. 

BY SUBSCRIBE TO NAUTI-CLUB, AM I A MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATION?

No, each person who subscribes becomes a user. This status does not give the right to vote at the assembly. However, we invite every user to submit their ideas to us to improve our concept by sharing their ideas.

I HAVE USED ALL OF MY PAF ... WHAT TO DO?

If your PAF is fully used up, you can subscribe to another one subject to availability.

NOTRE CONSEIL MÉTÉO/RÉSERVATION:

The 2021 season were not the best in terms of meteo. We noticed that few cancellation have been done when small clouds appeared on any meteo application such as Google or the others. It happens very often, even with some clouds on applications, that these days are very nice to go out. Our advice : Don't cancel your plan to go out only because of small clouds on meteo application. You will miss good outing and fun !

OUR ADVICE ON USAGE:

I have broken the window, what should I do ?
1. Make sure everyone is safe and call police for help and assistance if needed.
2. Call Nauti-Club, don't be afraid. This is not a big issue, it happens to everyone ! We have insurance for these kind of problems.

Think about your security and for the other users. Safe boats is our priority. We count on you to report any problems. We remind you that these are your boats that you use ! We count on you ?
