Boating Syndication Australia has announced a seven-boat display at the Sydney International Boat Show beginning on Thursday, August 1. The display will include the Australian debut of a 30-foot boat and BSA’s most popular model, the Riviera M400 sports cruiser, a Riviera 5000 Series II, and 5800 Sport Yacht Sunseeker 55 and 63 motor yachts.
“This is our most comprehensive display ever,” said Boating Syndication CEO Andy Young. “We will have shares available for all boating enthusiasts, from $29,000 for a share in a Riviera M400 to $175,000 for one-eighth of the Manhattan 63.” Mr. Young said the new 33-footer is a versatile sports cruiser with space for ten people on a day outing and four overnight, so she is perfect for fun on the harbor or extended coastal cruising. She offers twin cabins, including amidships double and forward V-berth and a separate enclosed bathroom. Along with the debut boat, the Sunseeker Manhattan 63 will be the major drawcard of the display, with incredible entertaining spaces both in the main saloon and on the extended flybridge. She includes three staterooms – including a full-beam master – and three bathrooms. Only one share remains for this opulent motor yacht.
With BSA, ownership of each boat resides with each owner who participates equally in a return when the ship is sold at the end of the syndication period, usually three years. BSA currently manages 31 luxury boats in a fleet across five locations in Sydney, Brisbane, on Queensland’s Gold Coast, and at Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays. “Our syndicates provide economical boating,” said Young. “Each owner is guaranteed at least 33 days on the water each year. Everyone shares in the cost of ownership and maintenance. The only additions are the fuel each owner uses while they are out.”
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) —
Fourth of July weekend is right around the corner, which means many Minnesotans will be headed to the lakes. To help keep everyone safe, the Minnesota DNR and other authorities will be ramping up patrols to crack down on drunken boaters. The initiative, called “Operation Dry Water,” kicks off on Friday across the state. It’s a national campaign aimed at deterring drinking and boating. According to the Minnesota DNR, in 2018, alcohol was a factor in half of the deadly boating accidents in Minnesota.
