SailTime named to list of fastest-growing companies

SailTime said it is on the 2016 Inc. Magazine 500-5000 list of the top fastest-growing private companies in the United States.

Boat membership program SailTime said it is on the 2016 Inc. Magazine 500-5000 list of the top fastest-growing private companies in the United States.

SailTime, which said it has bases in the United States and Australia, said the list is considered the most comprehensive look at America’s independent entrepreneurs.

“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. Magazine for the years of steady growth we’ve seen at SailTime,” company CEO Todd Hess said in a statement. “Positioned perfectly within the popular sharing economy, I am confident in SailTime’s continued growth throughout the United States and the world.”

SailTime said it expanded to 28 bases in the United States and six in Australia and that through a partnership with the American Sailing Association it has built the largest network of sailing education schools in America.

SailTime recently announced a partnership with Beneteau, making the builder’s boats available for the membership program and the boat ownership program at SailTime locations.
