About this document

This agreement covers any situation where two or more people or sets of people share ownership and use of a boat for leisure. The agreement has been drawn to as to regulate occupation where only one owner occupies the boat at one time.  However, there is nothing to prevent a second owner sharing time with another owner.

First, you should consider what is the most suitable structure for your sharing proposal.  If you are looking at a commercial arrangement or one for more than ten people, then it would be better to hold the property in a limited company and buy and sell shares in it.  Then ownership of the property itself never changes. 

However, running a company does cost money, so between 2 and 10 owners it is a matter of preference as to whether you want the formality, expense and greater certainty of a company structure and shareholders agreement or the lower cost and comparative informality of an agreement like one of these.

Even if ownership of your boat is registered with some organisation, the particulars will not record the shares in which the boat is held.  So If you own 60% and I own 40% we have to record that in some other document.  If we do not do so, “the Law” will assume we own in the shares in which we contributed to the purchase price.  This may or may not be the same thing.  This Net Lawman agreement specifically records the shares.  It also records shares which may be owned by someone who is not a registered owner. Such an interest is called a beneficial interest.

Really well put together with good guidance and language for those that don't have a law background. It helped to have the suggestions (which are easily removed) just to know some unforeseen circumstances are covered. Extremely well priced which was a determining factor for purchase.
