The world’s first global online boat exchange club, launched at the Dubai International Boat Show is a kind of timeshare on water.Started by the Boating Vacation Club, the idea is for yacht owners to choose dates their boat is available then jet off to someone else’s craft during the same holiday.

The Club enables the exchange of like-for-like boats that fall into the same size bracket; categories range from 0-9ft right up to 100-150ft.

Prices for one year’s membership start at around #200, with 3 and 5 year membership packages also available. All applicants to BVC International are extensively checked and verified with only fully licensed, fully insured boats and owners becoming part of the exclusive exchange network.
