Yes, anyone can become a member. Our minimum requirement is simply that you have a basic skipper license (in Sweden you need to get a skipper license within the first year of your membership), but you don’t need previous boating experience. Agapi is a premium Boat Club with a fleet of high performance and expensive boats, so the most important thing to us is to build a culture of respect and responsibility among our members. Once you’re part of the Club, we can help you build your nautical skills.
The onboarding process is three hours of practical training on our boats. This is mandatory for all new members, even if you do have previous boating experience. Onboarding ensures that everyone understands and follows Agapi routines and procedures and maintains a safety mindset.
All boats in the fleet are insured by Agapi. In case of an incident, the member pays up to the value of the excess, which is 4,000 EUR. Once the member reports the incident, Agapi takes care of all the rest.
Most members choose to buy our excess reduction fee. This costs between 300-500 EUR, depending on the selected boat in the membership plan, and reduces the excess fee to:
• 500 EUR if the member holds a coastal skipper license
• 900 EUR if the member holds a basic skipper license (required in most countries)
• 1,600 EUR if the member does not hold a license
The membership fee is the yearly cost for access to the boats, according to the options you select. The only extra payment while using the boats is to cover for the fuel you consume. Also, your membership fee includes a 50 hour engine usage allowance (70h in the UK). If you exceed that limit you simply pay a service cost for each extra 10 engine hours.
In the first year of membership you will be charged for the onboarding as a one-off additional fee (see local price list).
If you would like, you can add an excess reduction to your membership (see “How does the insurance work”).
Apart from these fees, there are no extra costs to consider when setting up your membership.
We have Agapi Centres in places as varied as Scandinavia and the Mediterranean. As you would expect, the boating never stops in warmer latitudes. But even in Scandinavia, we offer all-year boating, as long the harbour is ice-free. Our season lasts all year, and members can use the boats whenever they like and whenever the weather conditions allow it. We have boats equipped with heaters and radars to cater for comfort and safety during the winter boating season in Sweden and the UK.
No, you can’t select a certain month or set of months for membership. The membership is a full 365-day rolling period from your starting date. However, we offer lower rates for those who choose weekdays only or low-season access to boats. If you have a busy schedule and limited time for boating, you might want to consider our Pay-Go membership, welcome to contact us.
When you use the boat, your exact fuel consumption is logged to your digital profile. You do not need to refuel the boat to 100% after each boat trip but you need to make sure you leave the boat with a minimum 50% fuel level. At check-out, you need to register if you have filled up the boat so your personal fuel balance account remains correct.
Yes, as a member you access Agapi boats in other regions when you travel. We encourage our members to contact the local office to check and understand differences in local procedures, operations or safety requirements. If not included in your membership, there is an extra fee for using the boat in a location other than your home region.
Yes, you can add family members of age 18 and older and residing at the same address. The extra skipper will also need to take the onboarding training to be activated in your membership, contact us if you want to know more.
With your member login you can book the boats from your smartphone at any time. Book a boat in advance for e.g. a full 24-hour slot (from 10:00-10:00 am the following day) by using a “Planned day” included in all memberships. Or, search for availability within 48 hours of departure and make a “Spontaneous booking” of 1-24 hours slots. Spontaneous bookings also included in all memberships, are unlimited and reusable. If you’d like to book multiple consecutive Planned days, you can add this feature to you membership.
There are no limits to the number of bookings you can do. Your membership includes 50 engine hours (70h in the UK), but if you exceed that, you simply pay a service fee for each extra 10 engine hours.
It’s okay if you are new too boating, so long as you hold a skipper license (or for Sweden, get one during your first membership year). With the onboarding training we provide, you will quickly get comfortable using our boats. If you are new to boating, you will start getting experience with our smaller boats, and over time upgrade to larger models.
You can pay the yearly fee as a single payment or you can choose to pay monthly (12 installments) by credit card. The onboarding cost is paid separately at the start of your membership.
For us, a boating membership has two benefits. First, it gives you total control of your boating costs – none of the surprises owners face with service costs, repairs, insurance, depreciation, and more. And second, you get continuity – the certainty of hassle-free boating for as long as you like. Simply sign up for a membership and, if you don’t opt out, your renewal is as seamless as any other of the other subscriptions in your daily life.
Unlimited access to the boats of your dreams with true adventure boating in a variety of beautiful harbours in multiple locations. Just fill in the contact form and we will be in touch with you soon!
