What is fractional ownership?

The basic concept of fractional ownership is based on bringing like minded individuals together to purchase large capital outlay assets typically with very high maintenance expenses, time consuming management responsibilities and sometimes high depreciation rates. When proper systems are in place and expectations are set from the beginning, fractional ownership arrangements work out very nicely. One of the biggest perks to fractional ownership is the ability to get much more asset and service for the money.

Captain Craig Simmons, CEO Liberty Ship Ltd.

.“Whatever humans can accomplish, the platform for it is liberty. To say that freedom carries too much potential for abuse is like arguing that oceans are too dangerous and should be outlawed”
- J Rappoport

"The sea gets unimaginably treacherous and unforgiving  when we face her with incapacity, incompetence, or neglect."   

"A ship in a harbor is safe, but that's not what ships are built for."

A note from your Captain:

“Good business management needs to be founded upon moral - scientific principles that are indisputable and universally sound. They need to work like an unwavering star that indicates... not where to go ... but how to get there. The principles must work similar to how an “invisible hand” works in a free market, among free minds and free people who all - independently choose their own course.

When this kind of management is done well, no one sees it. No single person gets credit, things just seem to work and feel right. It’s like the magic of  “tacking close to the wind” or the "invisible spirit" that makes a thing infinitely more than the sum of it’s parts.

When in charge, know the rules, the principles, and the risks 'impeccably'. Stand by your convictions, particularly when facing challenges, even sure death, hell, or high water. Always keep in mind, when the chips are down, or when things go wrong - or worse ... In the event you have been elected to command? …                                            'Command”.

- Captain Craig Simmons CEO, Liberty Ship Ltd.
