Compare the Cost of Joining Bay to Bay Boat Club to Owning a Boat
Owning a boat is great. However if you think you may boat 10 to 20 times a year, consider your cost per use the the “sweat equity” in owning a boat. You rarely get back your initial cost when you purchase a boat—new boats lose value very quickly.



With the Boat Club, you have the opportunity to drive a variety of beautiful, new boats and the pleasure of boating without the long-term financial commitment or any of the work associated with boat ownership.

 


Below, you’ll find conservative estimates on cost to own a boat versus joining the Boat Club. These numbers don’t include any kind of repairs you are likely to have at some point, your time involved in cleaning, hauling (gas) and maintaining your boat.

 

HOW DO WE STACK UP ?

Looking at buying a boat simiar to an Bay to Bay boat club 25 Foot Deck Boat or Speed Boat?

The price would be approximately $65,000.00.  If you make a 10% down payment ($6,500.00) and Finance $59,500.00 you can figure your costs on the chart below.  The costs include normal yearly maintenance and a wet slip at a private Lake Minnetonka Marina.    

Do you want to trailer a boat?

If you are considering trailering a boat the size of an EBC boat (5,000 – 6,000 lbs) you will need a large SUV.  By law you will also need to decontaminate your boat every time you take it out of the water and/or before going to various lakes.
