MAKE IT YOUR OWN
At Compass Boat Club, we are not hanging over your shoulder, we have no set pick up and return times; you own the boat on the day you book it. We like every boating experience to be akin to ownership. Some members have loads of experience, some are first time boaters. We work with members to identify how much support they require and accommodate accordingly.
ADVANCED SKIPPER TRAINING
All members are required to complete the Boating Industry Association’s advanced skipper training. This is an online course that takes about a hour and is complimentary for our members. The training is highly relevant to the waterways in which our fleet operates. It gives our members enhanced situational awareness in common scenario’s encountered on waterways.
INDUCTION & SAFETY
Regardless of how much boating experience a member has; all members are required to be inducted. The induction has no set pace and is designed to ensure familiarity with each vessel a member will operate and the marina facility from which it operates.
They don’t call our Director Dan the Safety Man for nothing! All our vessels are classified Domestic Commercial Vessels because they are utilised for a commercial purpose. We pride ourselves on operating to the National Standard for Commercial Vessels. In doing so we ensure the fleet is fit for purpose, well maintained and we are on hand for any issues.
You will receive access to our online portal which indicates availability. To book an available boat simply call, email or SMS or complete a booking request in the portal. You can opt in or out of SMS notifications. Members are notified if days become available at short notice through cancelations or a partial day becomes available.
At your induction we will talk about your boating needs, suggest some destinations and things to do. Members have access to our list of suggested activities and Members actively contribute based on their experience.
