MyBoatShares, a fractional boat-ownership program, has added five Jacksonville, Fla., retailers to its dealer network.

In Jacksonville, Haskell’s Marine, Jacksonville Yacht Sales and Atlantic Coast Marine will sell MyBoatShares partnerships in 23- to 40-foot center consoles, sportfishers, cruisers, pontoons, and performance and ski boats. In addition, MyBoatShares will offer clients fractional ownership of boats at Riverbend Marine in St. Augustine and Ocean Outboard Marine in Amelia Island.

“With new-boat sales declining over the past three years due in part to a weak economy, boat dealers are looking for new ways to move inventory and improve margins,” said Glenn Enriquez, CEO of MyBoatShares, in a statement. “Our unique program provides an opportunity for them to network with other dealers, cross-sell a wider assortment of boat brands and models, and offer flexible ownership options to a larger pool of potential boat buyers.”

Based in Stuart, Fla., MyBoatShares is a fractional ownership program that provides the benefits of boat ownership, but at a fraction of the cost and without the typical responsibilities.
