Why Co-op Ownership Makes Sense: -Provides affordable access to a boat for cruising and day sailing. -You are not just buying a boat, you are joining a volunteer-driven community of sailors who work together to ensure the boat stays in good condition. -Moorage in Thunderbird Marina in West Vancouver provides an unbeatable location for day sailing, weekends in Howe Sound, and longer trips to the Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound etc.
What we are looking for in new owners: -Has or will get Canadian Yachting Association's (Sail Canada) Intermediate Cruising Standard or equivalent. -As with all co-ops, operates on a philosophy that if everyone tries to put in a little more than their fair share of effort into the ongoing operation of the co-op then the co-op works really well. As we are a small co-op, everyone gets involved in doing maintenance tasks, annual cleaning, administration etc.
