Boat Ownership – Add a Boat to Our Fleet!

Alternate text

Did you know most of Seattle Sailing Club’s boats are privately owned by club members? Our boat owners help make it possible for hundreds of trained SSC club members to experience the joys of sailing the Puget Sound and San Juan Islands in comfort with their family and friends. Boat Ownership in the Seattle Sailing Club has many advantages. Below are just a few of the reasons sailors have opted to put their boats to work for them.


  • We take care of your monthly moorage cost.
  • We provide a fixed monthly lease payment year-round for leasing your boat from you.
  • We organize your boat’s routine maintenance. All the details of routine maintenance and repair services are managed and provided by Seattle Sailing Club’s fleet technicians or locally outsourced experts.
  • We provide annual cleanings and inspections of your boat’s systems.
  • Our helpful dock staff do daily walk-throughs to check on your boat.
  • We offer our highest level of membership for a fraction of the cost which gives you access to sail any boat in the Club’s fleet for day sails and discounted overnight charters.
  • Charter your boat up to 12 consecutive days between May and October with advanced reservation privileges.
  • Race your boat in local regattas and choose a summer weeknight race series every year.
  • Moor your boat in Shilshole Bay Marina year-round or in Anacortes (May – September) for easier access to the San Juan Islands (Boats 35’ +).
  • Discounted rates on all sailing lessons.
  • Discounts on Gill, Dubarry, and Mustang Survival sailing gear.
  • Participate in our member programs, join our fun community, and share your passion for sailing!

What make a good Club boat?

  • 0 – 15 years old 24′-42′ Keelboats

What kind of boats is the Club looking for now?

We are working to expand our Seattle J Club fleet  by Spring 2021. At the top of our member’s wish list are keelboats 34’ to 42’ with 2-3 berths. Boats outside of these specifications are gladly considered as long as they are less than 15 years old and appropriately equipped for bareboat chartering.
