Policy

  • Definition of a Liveaboard: Regular, repetitive living aboard a boat covering more than 5 days per month, or continuous living aboard a boat is deemed to be “living aboard” for the purpose of being charged the Liveaboard Fee.
  1. All persons living aboard must be financial members of one of the classes of Club membership. This is to be made up of one Senior member and all other persons living aboard must be financial members of another category.
  2. A member intending to live aboard their boat must make application on the appropriate form to the General Manager prior to commencing to live aboard.
  3. A fee shall be levied on each vessel occupied by Liveaboards. This fee will be reviewed each year as part of the budget process.
  4. A Liveaboard member is required to pay the Permanent Power Connection charge.  No additional charge will apply for power consumption as this is included in the Liveaboard fee.  The Permanent Power Connection charge relates to the member, not the boat if the vessel is sold to another member.
  5. The General Manager shall determine Liveaboard status in accordance with this policy and shall maintain a register of vessels occupied by Liveaboards.
  6. Repetitive incidents of behaviour that are deemed to be unsafe, or unsatisfactory will result in cancellation of Liveaboard rights.
