Yacht ownership programmes enable you to experience all the pleasures of owning a yacht without any of the hard work or expense.
You can purchase a brand new sailing yacht, catamaran or motor yacht and place it in a charter fleet at any one of a number of stunning worldwide destinations. Sail your boat for up to 12 weeks per year and when you are not there she will be chartered out, earning you a regular income.
Many of the programmes offer a fixed, guaranteed monthly income sufficient to cover any loan payments on the boat and will take care of all operating expenses, such as insurance, berthing fees and maintenance costs. They will also carry out the annual haul out and anti-fouling for you. Other schemes pay you a fixed percentage of the charter income, 80% is typical, then deduct itemised expenses before forwarding you the balance.
Programmes usually last for up to 5 years during which time you can enjoy hassle free sailing on your own boat. Many schemes also offer you the chance to experience other destinations on a similar boat as part of your sailing time. At the end of the period, you can keep the boat, trade it in for a newer model or sell it.
