- Own a voyage — without “owning the boat”. It’s a millionaire’s lifestyle for pennies on the dollar… You get to participate in the trip of a lifetime without any of the risks & high costs.
- Bring a Guest — you can bring a non-member guest at your co-op rate.
- Reduced Rates — get affordable access to sailing adventures!!!
- Work trade option — co-op members can reduce your boat time costs up to 50% with work trade.
- Reserve your spot on the voyage — Co-op members can access our Detailed Schedule.
- Offer input in our yearly survey — “Where do you want the boat to go?” Pick your dream destination and help build the voyage.
Responsibilities of Crew Members
- We’re a community ship — sailing on Aldebaran is a participatory experience! Our atmosphere of sharing makes it special.
- Embrace your role as a Crew Member — everyone is helping make this dream happen — whether by sharing things you love (music, skills, knowledge), being motivated to do activities (do your sailing shift, snorkel, SUP) or helping out (cooking, cleaning, fixing stuff)
- Courier gear to the boat — all crew members are requested to travel bring down items to the boat (or take items back to U.S.) — this helps us keep costs low. It might be anything from peanut butter to nuts & bolts!
- Good Food is happiness — everyone takes turns cooking, please bring a few recipe options to share when your turn comes!
- HARVEST STOKE — above all, we promote an environment with a positive attitude, kind communication, and enthusiasm for life.
PS. Wondering what our trimaran is like? Check out the Boat page. Please note that Aldebaran has 3 double beds, which means it is best if you come as a pair. If you are on your own and want to guarantee a private bunk, please request space for two people (saving the second spot is half price).
