SailTime and Beneteau Extend Partnership


Beneteau and SailTime have decided to keep a good thing going and extend their partnership by five years. Through a membership with SailTime, boaters can share the use of a professionally managed boat using SailTime’s online scheduling system. The extended partnership will allow SailTime to use Beneteau boats in its local fleets for the membership program, and to sell them via its yacht ownership program.

“The sharing economy is the fastest growing segment in our industry right now and SailTime is helping us grow in that space,” Beneteau America President Laurent Fabre. “The synergy with our yacht dealers incorporating their franchise model into their business is outstanding and it is driving additional boat sales for Beneteau.”

SailTime has expanded rapidly in the past five years, and currently has 28 locations in the United States and six in Australia. Just in 2016, three Beneteau yacht dealers have partnered up with SailTime, including SailTime San Diego, SailTime New Orleans and SailTime New York.
