6 Reasons Why You Should Buy A Yacht In Charter
Thinking about buying a yacht, but not sure if it’s the right choice for you? Here’s a list of great reasons why you should invest in a charter yacht.
If this doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.
1. The joy of being a proud yacht owner
Imagine inviting your friends over for a sunset cruise, enjoying dinner and drinks. Imagine the feeling of freedom when you’re sailing with your family swimming, sunbathing and exploring. As a yacht owner, you get to enjoy a whole new lifestyle.
2. Sailing holidays at a reduced cost
Compared to chartering, yacht charter ownership is more cost effective, when you sail regularly. The owner’s time varies from 6 weeks to unlimited time, which means you get plenty of vacation time. During your time on the yacht, you only have to cover the running costs, such as fuel and food. You get to spend quality time with family and friends and enjoy time on the water.
3. Seeing places you’d never see otherwise
Discover new countries and continents, explore other cultures, meet new people. There’s no better way to enjoy traveling than by boat. You have access to hidden beaches and secret coves, get to experience small towns and great cities and all they have to offer. You have the chance to sail in your designated base or sail on sister ships in other locations.
4. An investment opportunity
The charter income will help you finance the yacht, and in some cases, you can even make some profit. Charter yacht ownership also has tax advantages. At the end of the charter ownership program, you can keep the boat and sail it home. You also have the option to sell it or trade it in.
5. Peace of mind
The charter management company takes care of the maintenance and the costs. Depending on the program you choose, you can be more involved or enjoy a completely hassle-free ownership. Moreover, if you choose a small charter operator, you invest in a family company and can develop a close relationship with them.
6. Sailing, sailing, sailing
Ultimately, that’s what this is all about, isn’t it? Sailing. With yacht charter ownership, you get to broaden your sailing experience in different places and conditions. You even have the chance to try other similar yachts than your own. Depending on your chosen charter management company and agreement, you get as little or as much time to go sailing as you wish.
So, there you have it. Plenty of reasons to invest in a charter yacht.
