Exploring Sublet Management
For those Marinas and Yacht Clubs that allow their members or clients to sublet their moorage, MARINA MATE provides the management of the postings and rewards the owners of the slip with all, or a portion of the moorage fees collected. When the slip is vacated for an extended period, either staff or the owners can flag the system that their slip is OK to sublet, and supply the dates. At the end of the boating season, the owner of the moorage slip will either have their accounts credited or receive payment based on one of several formulas. Reports available include a Sublet Available Report, Sublet Post Detail Report and a Pool Group Credit Summary Report.
One of the methods is based on the concept of Sublet Pooling Groups. Moorage slips are allocated to a pooling group based on the maximum boat length it can accommodate. All owners with slips in a pool group that registered their slip for sublet will receive a share of all the moorage fees that were collected from vessels that were sublet to those slips. A percentage is computed based on the number of days the owner's slip was available, to the total number of days all owner's slip, associated to each Pooling Group, were made available.
