SailTime is an innovative new approach to boat access and ownership that makes it easier, quicker and more economical for aspiring captains to take the helm of a beautiful, well-equipped sail or power boat anywhere in the world.

In 2001, avid boater George Bonelli saw a need for making boating easier and more affordable. He founded SailTime, purchased the first boat with personal savings and tested the business model on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas. Initially, SailTime focused exclusively on sailboats, and the business quickly expanded to 30 bases in North America in its first three years. SailTime maintains over 35 bases with 115 boats on two continents.

SailTime product offerings have expanded to include power boats with SailTime Power as well as several other complimentary products that help SailTime members achieve the personal lifestyle goals they set for themselves and their families. SailTime continues to expand and innovate with additional products, locations, brands and types in the SailTime program.

Each SailTime base is independently owned and operated by a local entrepreneur who the SailTime Group, LLC has licensed to use our trademarks and business methods. Our “Base Owners” take pride in insuring that your experience with SailTime is one that is memorable and world class. Additionally, these proud business owners are in charge of all the boats maintenance and operational needs so you can simply enjoy your time on the water with friends and family.
