New Fibrafort stars at Boating Syndication display in Sydney

26 July 2016

Boating Syndication Australia will unveil its largest-ever display at the Sydney International Boat Show, starting on Thursday.

The highlight of the display will be the first on-water display in Australia of the Fibrafort F400 Gran Coupe - all the way from Brazil.

According to BSA's Andrew Young, the Fibrafort F400 is perhaps the best-built 40-foot cruisers since the Riviera M400 was released.

"She is a rocket," he says. "I brought her to Sydney Harbour from Brooklyn over the weekend and she accelerates incredibly well. She is capable of high speeds and reaches speed effortlessly.

"This is also a beautifully designed and equipped boat. There is every bell and whistle a luxury boat owner could want. The bathroom includes a separate shower stall, fully tiled. Most 40-footers on the market have what we call a 'wet head'. The shower is part of the bathroom and everything gets wet. Not on the Fibrafort."

The company will also display the first ever "mirror cruiser" seen in Australia - a Fairline Targa 58 with a chrome metallic wrapped hull.

"It took us two years to find someone in Australia who could undertake this project," says Young. "The result is stunning. The hull looks like a mirror. It looks like a stealth silver bullet on the water."

Other boats available for view at the BSA display include a Riviera 5000 Series II Sport Yacht, a Riviera M400 sports cruiser ("The most popular model in our fleet," says Young) and a Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht.

Shares in the Fibrafort F400 Gran Coupe are available at $69,000 each for a 10 percent share.

"At this price, we are expecting shares to sell very quickly," says Young. "She is new, she is different and very stylish."

The Fairline Targa 58 is being offered at $139,000 for one eighth share, the Riviera 5000 Sport Yacht at $137,500 for a one-eighth share and the Riviera 5800 Sport Yacht at $420,000 for a 20 percent share.

"We also have shares available in another Riviera 5800 at $210,000 for a 10 percent share," says Young. "This boat will not be on our display but is a sister to the display boat."

Young says all syndication owners share in the cost of ownership and maintenance. The only additions are the fuel each owner uses while out on the water.

"Each owner receives their share of the value of the boat when it is sold at the end of the syndication term, so this is incredible cost-effective luxury boating," he says. "There is no exit fee through BSA.

"BSA is the only boat share company that will guarantee fixed ongoings and a minimum of 60 percent return when the boat is sold at the end of the syndication period."

"Boating is Better with BSA"




BSA "blown away" by success at Sanctuary Cove

May 27, 2015

Boating Syndication Australia is "blown away" by the results from last week's Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show.

"We sold three shares in boats on the first day alone," said BSA Managing Director Andrew Young. "By the end of the show we had sold a total of 11 shares, some for our luxury cruiser fleet in Sydney but most for our Queensland boats. 
"We have never seen such a good response at any show before."
The company displayed three boats during the show - a Belize 52 with a renewal syndicate, a Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht and a Riviera 5000 Sport Yacht that is new to the fleet and destined for Manly in Brisbane. 
"We were booked up with sea trials for three days after the show," said Young.
"Until now, Queensland has been slower to adopt our syndication model than Sydney, but this show has demonstrated that acceptance has picked up dramatically."  
He said sister company Motorhome Syndication Australia gained a similar response at the show.
"We took delivery of our very first Queensland-based motorhome a week before the show and decided to display it in the Sanctuary Cove village throughout the show," Young said. "We have sold half of the shares in that vehicle already and will add another three motorhomes over the next couple of months.
"It is a demonstration that people coming to a boat show are seeking lifestyle opportunities, not simply boats." 


Boating Syndication heads for the hills

5 May, 2015
The team at Boating Syndication Australia has turned its talents toward the wide open roads of Australia.
BSA's sister business, Motor Home Syndication Australia (MHSA), will display a brand new motorhome during the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show this month, while BSA will have three boats displayed on the water.
BSA Managing Director Andrew Young said the two concepts open a huge variety of leisure options for Australians. 
"Take the family boating for a week in Spring or Summer, then travel the wide open spaces," he said. "Winter in the outback is an ideal time.
"Families can have both for less than the full cost of a standard motorhome."
MHSA has launched with motor homes that are the maximum size available for owners to drive under a standard car driver’s license. The company is also offering one caravan and four-wheel drive unit as an option.   
On the water, BSA has new shares available in its glamorous Belize 52, Belizzimo, an innovative Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht family cruiser, both based on the Gold Coast and shares in a Riviera 5000 Sport Yacht to be based at Manly in Brisbane.
"We are offering special pricing throughout the show," said Young. "Shares in Belizzimo have become available as the boat's syndicate is renewed. Most of the owners have already chosen to roll over their shares, leaving only three shares available during the show at $135,000 for a 10 percent share or $259,000 for 20 percent. 
Motorhome Syndication's plan provides ownership of a motorhome, up to three months of travel time each year, which can be broken into multiple trips, shared ongoing costs such as insurance and servicing and a guaranteed return on investment when the vehicle is sold. 
Families select the package that best suits their lifestyle and time available. For working couples, a single block of 28 days a year might suit them best. A share at this level is valued at $25,000. The other option is for those with more time to explore. Two blocks of 28 days is available for $45,000. This allows the flexibility to explore a region for four weeks, fly home and return to discover another part of our great country later in the year.   
Each member of a syndicate actually owns a share of a motor home. Members share the running costs and book times to use the motor home under an equitable plan that ensures a fair share of peak travel periods.
The additional benefit is a walk-in walk-out experience. When an owner returns to garage, the family can simply pack their bags and go home. The MHSA team takes over to thoroughly clean the motor home, replenish supplies, wash and change linen and towels.
Andrew Young said: “We love leisure, and so do our clients, hence the launch of another leisure business. Our owners and future leisure lovers can enjoy exploring, relaxing and creating many memories at an affordable price with no hassle."

Multiple choices in luxury from Boating Syndication

25 June, 2014
Australia's leading boat share innovator Boating Syndication Australia will offer a range of luxury boating options during the Sydney International Boat Show  beginning on July 31.
As swell as three luxury boats on display - from a sparkling Fairline Targa 58GT to a Riviera M400 sports cruiser - BSA is unveiling international share options for all owners.
The company has opened in Cape Town, South Africa, and will reveal options in New Zealand during the show.
"This means our owners can now cruise their local waters of we can arrange for them to spend time in some of the best cruising destinations as part of their ownership package," says BSA Managing Director Andrew Young.   
The Fairline Targa 58GT on display during the show offers "almost everything a luxury cruiser can offer" according to Young. "It is an entertainer's dream with a large open galley and saloon that leads to a extended rear deck."
Shares in the multi-million-dollar boat are available at $185,000 for one tenth over a four-year syndicate. 
The company is also offering a bargain resale share on one of its Riviera M400 sports cruisers, making it one of the most economical ways to enjoy family boating in Sydney. 
The share is available during the show for $34,000 in a four-year syndication. 
BSA will also display a Riviera 5000 Sport Yacht with 10 shares available at $89,000 each.


BSA to launch new boats in Queensland following success at Sanctuary Cove

30 May, 2014
Australia's leading boating lifestyle company, Boating Syndication Australia, will launch two new boats into the Queensland market following sales success at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show last week.
Managing Director Andrew Young said the company sold six of 10 available shares for its new Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht during the show.
"This boat will now be berthed at Sanctuary Cove," he said. 
The Riviera 4400 Sport Yacht provides accommodation for two couples or a family in two cabins. The saloon and galley open out seamlessly to a large cockpit to provide a luxurious indoor-outdoor environment and plenty of room for entertaining.
The boat is powered through pod drives with joystick controls making for simple manoeuvring even in tight marinas.
"This system makes it ideal even for relatively novice boaters," said Young.   
He said the Riviera 4400s were popular among syndicate owners and the company will now set up a swap structure between Sydney and Queensland owners.
"Our 4400 owners at Sanctuary Cove and Manly will be able to exchange time on board with our owners at The Spit on Sydney Harbour," he said. 
The company also sold two remaining shares in its Riviera 360 sports cruiser during the boat show. The boat is based at Marina Mirage at the southern end of the Gold Coast Broadwater. 


BSA tastes a success at 2013 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show

28 May, 2013

Well the weather was surely on our side at the recent SCIBS. Many boating enthusiasts inspected the beautiful Fairline Targa 58 and the Riviera M360 throughout the show and we have received considerable interest and new owners sign up on both vessels. We also enjoyed catching up with some of our Queensland owners at the show enjoying some champagne and nibbles.

Sparkling Fairline shines at Boating Syndication SCIBS display

4 April, 2013 - Yacht & Boat

A luxurious Fairline Targa 58 will be the centrepiece of the on-water display for Boating Syndication Australia at the 2013 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in May.

New to the fast-expanding BSA fleet, the Fairline is a large sports cruiser brimming with innovative features.

The company will also display its Riviera M360 sports cruiser, based on the Gold Coast Broadwater.

Andy Young, Managing Director of BSA, said the Fairline “is hugely unconventional in design. The forward cabin, for example, has the ambience of a hotel room on the water. The usable space in this cabin simply defies convention. It is this type of thinking that continues throughout the boat.”

New courtesy bus for Boating Syndication owners

Innovative luxury boating company Boating Syndication Australian (BSA) has introduced a new service for clients – a courtesy vehicle to save time and cost in car parking.

BSA’s Andy Young said the new service is already being well received by clients.

The people mover can carry up to eight passengers so it offers owners the chance to extend the service to friends as well as immediate family.

“It takes much of the stress out of a day’s boating,” said Andy. “Getting a car park around any of Sydney’s marinas is difficult at the best of times. Now our clients simply make a quick phone call and we are there to pick them up.”

He said the new service also means an owner can now relax and share a few drinks with friends as soon as they return to the marina instead of waiting until they arrive home.

“It makes the time out on the water even more of a pleasure,” said Andy. “Of course, a skipper can’t drink while out on the water, but the day becomes even more pleasant if they can relax as soon as they are back in dock at the end of the day.”

BSA has a fleet of seven boats in Sydney, based at The Spit in Mosman and at Rushcutters Bay close to the city centre.

February 2011 BSA launches a Riviera M400 at The Spit on behalf of its owners.


BSA unveils the latest luxury cruisers in its fleet to Sydney clients

13 November 2011

BSA’s Andy Young and his team introduced the exciting new 52-foot Belize Motoryacht to owners at a party held at the d’Albora Marina in Mosman on Sunday, October 30.

The party was the first chance for David and Sandy Libling to see their new acquisition. They bought two of the available 10 shares on the boat sight unseen and are delighted.

“The finish and thoughtfulness that have gone into the boat are exceptional,” said David. He had looked over a number of the BSA offerings but was looking for something that would exactly suit his family’s needs.

“We were looking closely at another brand but Andy asked us to wait to see the Belize. He showed us layout plans and convinced us,” said David.

Sandy loves the seamless indoor-outdoor atmosphere. Sitting on the lounge on the wide aft deck she said: “It all comes together, from the galley to this deck. It is as if there is no door at all.”

Andrew Hardy brought his young children to view the new boat and they were as excited as their father.

“The boat combines a feeling of both classic and modern in a very effective way,” he said. “We love the interior design with its European textures and colours. She is unique.”

For Peter Lumsdaine, the BSA business model is important.

“Andy is someone I can trust,” said Peter. “The concept is particularly good for people getting into boating. Andy and his team have a strong focus on training and support. He is always available with tips to help make our boating easier or to get us out of trouble if needed.”

David and Sandy agreed that the BSA syndication model is attractive.

“The booking system is incredibly flexible,” said David. “If we book a few days and then can’t take them, we can swap with other owners. Some booking systems lock you in so you often waste booked days.”

Paul Sifis met the BSA team at this year’s Sydney international Boat Show this year.

From elft - Belize launch and Paul Sifis, new owner of Belize 52 at the helm.

“I was looking for new boat but didn’t have a lot to spend,” said Paul. “Then Andy explained how the syndication system works. He showed us drawings of the Belize and I was sold. The model of shared ownership works so well. I get a lot more boat and share the costs. All you need is a bit of a flexible attitude.”

The new Belize – yet to be named by her proud owners – joins a fleet of Riviera, Princess, Clipper and Azimut luxury boats in BSA’s berths at the d’Albora marina in Mosman.
