Port Carling, Ontario (July 28, 2010) — The Muskokan Resort Club (http://www.muskokanclub.com), a fractional ownership development of luxury villas on the shores of prestigious Lake Joseph, in the heart of Muskoka, has introduced an exciting new concept in boat ownership that provides The Muskokan Resort Club owners with carefree and affordable boating. The Muskokan Resort Boat Club gives The Muskokan Club owners the opportunity to enjoyment all aspects of boat ownership, without the hassle and high costs associated with boat ownership. The program allows for turnkey boating at a fraction of the cost of traditional boat ownership, with no maintenance. The Muskokan Resort Club is the first fractional development to offer this brand of carefree boat-ownership. Touchstone and Red Leaves, two competing luxury Muskoka interval ownership resorts, do not offer their members this benefit.
Membership in The Muskokan Resort Boat Club is included with the purchase of a Muskokan Resort Club shared ownership interval. During their Muskokan vacation weeks, Resort Club owners will have access to the Boat Club’s boats on a reservation basis. The resort developer will pay the initiation Boat Club fee and the first year’s annual dues of the two year renewable membership. Thereafter, the member only pays for the annual dues for subsequent years. Boat Club dues are $1,000 to $2,000 per year and include three weeks of boating use, far less than the cost of renting a boat of equivalent quality. Boats will be available for members use at The Muskokan’s docks from May 15th through to October 15th. Currently, The Muskokan Club owners can dock their own boats at the resort. However, owners are responsible for the hauling, launching, maintenance and the inconvenience of removing their boat at the end of each stay.
The Muskokan Boat Club will be professionally administered through Pride Marine Group, Muskoka’s largest boat dealership. With five locations, Pride Marine Group has served Ontario’s cottage country for 25 years and is known for its reputable service. The Muskokan Boat Club owner members can select from the club’s fleet of desirable high-end boats, such as Nautiques, Chapparal Xtreme and EdgeWater. These boats have an average purchase price of $65,000. Boats will be rotated through the program at an interval of three years or less, guaranteeing members the ultimate in safety and comfortable boating.
“In keeping with The Muskokan’s concept of totally carefree resort club ownership, we decided that offering our vacation club owners the opportunity to experience carefree boating was the next logical step,” states The Muskokan Club’s Walter Prychidny. “Members of the Muskokan Resort Boat Club will have the opportunity to take advantage of this boat program that removes the expense and hassle of boat ownership, providing more leisure time to maximize their enjoyment on the water. Boating and Muskoka are synonymous and Lake Joseph is one of Ontario’s premier lakes. Just as shared ownership vacation properties offer a luxurious vacation lifestyle at a fraction of the price of whole-ownership; shared boat ownership also redefines the meaning of affordable leisure lifestyle. Fractional ownership is the smartest way I know to own a second home, and now in Muskoka, to own a boat,” says Prychidny.
