The Southern Comfort Syndicate In A Nutshell
The price for a 1/12th share is £1800, and the ongoing cost of holding your share holding is £50 per month to cover your share of the maintainace, storage and insurance costs. It means that the cost of your annual 2 weeks sailing holiday works out at £600 per year. You would be very hard pushed to get better value sailing holidays in the beautiful Ionian Sea.
Southern Comfort is a Sigma 33C built in Portsmouth in 1983. Owned by a long established UK based syndicate with a total of 12 shares, she is based at Nydri on Lefkas in the Ionian. For sale is a single share which gives 2 weeks per year sailing in the Ionian, one of the most beautiful sailing areas in the World. Southern Comfort is a ‘C’ variant of the Sigma 33 and with a bit less sail area that the racing version, she is nevertheless a slippery shape that keeps pace with many designs that are a couple of feet longer at the waterline. She sails beautifully and has no vices under sail.
A new shareholder is required to have reasonable sailing experience and to hold an ICC or RYA skippering qualification in order to satisfy the requirements of Greek law and our marine insurance policy.
This long established friendly syndicate has spent as required over the years to ensure that she is in good shape and that the equipment and fittings are maintained and replaced when necessary. With much of the equipment recently replaced it is not foreseen that there is requirement for much capital expenditure in the near future.
The nearest airport to Nydrie is Preveza although by arrangement with other syndicate members changeover, or indeed your own crew changes can be local to alternative airports such as Corfu, Kefalonia or Zante. The sailing season for Southern Comfort runs from May to October when she will is winterised and maintenance tasks are carried out, including hull checks and anti fouling. In theory she has 6/7 berths and for day sailing with minimal personal equipment sailing her with this number is perfectly possible, but for holidaying it is better to have no more than 5, and 2, 3 or 4 works really well.
After the conclusion of the sailing season the syndicate has an AGM in early November where we review the season and work out what winter work is required and arrange the 2 week slots for the following season. Although there are 12 shares a couple of members have 2 shares so sail for 4 weeks. The running costs for the season are met from the syndicate bank account to which we pay £50 per month per share. With a format of 12 shares and the resulting modest costs associated owning a piece of Southern Comfort, it represents a fantastically cost effective way of sailing the Ionian.
