The SailTime Group formed a new partnership with Rinker Boats to include more powerboats - specifically, Rinker's line of Express Cruisers and Captivas - in the fractional sailing program.

SailTime has been adding powerboats to its program during the last two years in several key markets, including Toronto, New York and Houston. With the addition of Rinker Boats, SailTime's fractional program for powerboating could eventually expand to its 30 bases nationwide.

"Rinker is excited to partner with SailTime," said Steve Tadd, marketing director for Nautic Global Group, in a statement. "Fractional boating is a growing business model and SailTime has pioneered a proven path to boating that is even more appealing in challenging economic times. We believe interest in SailTime Power will exceed that of the traditional fractional sailing business."

As SailTime's preferred vendor for 26- to 40-foot powerboats, the line of Rinkers featured in the program will include the 32- to 40-foot Express Cruisers with Axius joystick docking by MerCruiser.

SailTime also recently announced the launch of a new program called SailTime Plus, which allows members who travel access to boats at SailTime bases worldwide.
