Fractional boat ownership company Ownaship will take delivery of its eighth Rayglass Legend in November. The new VW diesel-powered Rayglass Legend 2800 will join the four Rayglass 2500s and three Rayglass 4000s already in the rapidly growing Ownaship fleet.
Ownaship managing director Simon Barker says all the Rayglass boats in his fleet are extremely popular with his clients and he expects the same will be true of the new 2800.
“Our new Rayglass Legend 2800 is abig volume 8.7-metre trailer boat, powered with an extremely economical new VW TDi diesel engine. It will appeal to keen fishers who want to get to distant fishing grounds and back in a relatively short period of time — and those who want to cruise further afield and spend the night away in comfort.”
The 2800 features a two-burner stove in the galley, an electric fridge, an enclosed toilet and a hot water shower in the transom.
“Add in that economical VW diesel, the latest Raymarine electronics and Ownaship’s famed five-star walk on-walk off availability and it’s easy to see why, at just $29,500 per share, this new Rayglass 2800 is likely to prove extremely popular.” Barker says Rayglass boats of all sizes have a hugely positive reputation.
“They are top end, quality powerboats that are absolutely perfect for New Zealand conditions. We have a wide range of clients and the Rayglass boats suit them all: the couples, the young families, the guys that want to go fishing and diving with their mates.
Barker says that, unlike many powerboats that spend most of the year sitting in driveways, those in the Ownaship fleet get used, often on more than 200 days a year.
“That’s where the Rayglass quality comes in. Despite that high usage, even our oldest boats still look like new. And they are always ready to go, making them absolutely perfect for family boating.”
