Apr 25th 2009 6:36AM I think the club membership business model for supercars is very challenging. The cost of buying the car, plus all the running costs means that the cost of membership is relatively high. This may suit people who understand exactly what it costs to buy the cars outright, maybe because they’ve previously owned outright, but the price still seems very high to people who just want a taste of the high life. At the same time it is always difficult to work out a sensible points/cost model that allows people to have the car when they want. Often these become terribly complex.
For those people that could afford the car outright, but can’t justify the cost, I think the best way forward to to find two or three like-minded people with a compatible requirement and buy the car together, thus reducing the costs substantially. Websites like http://www.yours2share.com enable you to find suitable partners. For those who just want a taste, I recommend they simply hire the cars by the day.
Feb 23rd 2009 5:30AM There are a wide range of yacht fractional ownership opportunities on http://www.yours2share.com
Most are for private syndicates looking for like-minded partners, some are for commercial fractional boat ownership schemes like Synchrony.
Aug 4th 2008 10:57AM This looks like a good scheme. Another alternative for people looking to share a plane, particularly if they want a larger share or a different arrangement is to find a group of like-minded people and create a private syndicate.
http://www.yours2share.com can help people find suitable partners and provides extensive guidance and template contracts.
Mar 14th 2007 6:56AM http://www.yours2share.com/
is a similar web site allowing people to find partners with whom to share all kinds of high value assets such as property, boats, mobile homes, cars, airccraft, jewellery, fine art, handbags, staff, absolutely anything valuable that you don't use all of the time. The ads include both private individuals offering or looking for shares and the companies offering asset sharing schemes.
As well as covering all the fractional ownership options, yours2share also allows people to find partners for fractional renting and shared employment.
There is lots of help and guidance together with standard contract templates.
