Smart boat ownership with Cobli

The founders of start-up Cobli say boat equity ownership is the best way forward for boat lovers who want to make a smart investment ahead of the summer months.

John Cowpe and Peter Hrones have long been the importers for some of the world’s most prestigious brands on the water.  From sail to power, they have spent the last few decades supplying the Australian and New Zealand markets. 

Having always supported the sharing economy, the duo felt that now was the ideal time to offer their luxurious brands through Cobli ‘the art of ownership.’ Cobli is a high-end equity ownership company set to enter the Sydney market place.  

“We have seen so much uptake in boating during this pandemic through our other businesses – more than any of us expected,” Cowpe said. “Families wanting to live life as much as is currently possible, looking at alternatives to overseas holidays, seeking a safe haven whilst enjoying adventures together.”

With hundreds of millions of tourist dollars now being spent locally in lieu of overseas holidays, the pair have a firm belief that this service will be in high demand for the upcoming summer season and beyond.

Cobli’s Marketing Manager, Marnie Ebeling said, “Cobli is essentially an equity share opportunity in some of the world’s most trendsetting and sought after brands. It makes sense to time-poor people, looking for efficient usage of the asset – who want a nice step on step off tailored solution. 

“Shorter terms ensure our clients are always in the latest boats and get the best resale (equity back). It is without a doubt a clever use of money.” 

Those looking for family fun on the new Lagoon 42 catamaran based between Sydney and the Whitsunday Islands could look at a $225,000AUD investment for a 1/6th share.
