- 3 Ways to Own a Yacht with the World's Leading Brands -

The growth of the yacht charter industry has introduced new ways to own a boat. Instead of just traditional, private yacht ownership, now there is literally an option for everyone. Charter yacht management programs commonly attract buyers who appreciate cost-offsetting income, reduced maintenance responsibility, and sister ship usage opportunities around the world. Private yacht buyers enjoy complete flexibility and choice of equipment. Used boat buyers find value in yachts that are not only already depreciated, but often already outfitted for cruising. Though each style has its own selling points, they all offer access to what is most important to every buyer: time on the water.

FIND THE RIGHT YACHT FOR YOU

Charter Yacht Ownership

Charter Yacht Management programs vary in structure, typically providing worry-free ownership, income, and the opportunity to enjoy worldwide sailing destinations. View two structures offered by Sunsail and the Moorings below.
Guaranteed Income
Yacht Owners enjoy guaranteed income regardless of charter activity, as well as zero operating expenses, worry-free maintenance and extensive use of their yachts and sister ships worldwide. Owners enjoy up to 12 weeks of sailing at worldwide destinations, sailing school courses if desired, and a dedicated Owner Care team for bookings.
Option to Purchase
In the Option to Purchase program, the yacht owner pays significantly less for the yacht at the outset, and does not receive an income throughout the program. The single payment is 65% of the retail purchase price. This contract is available with deliveries to Greece, Croatia, Thailand or French Polynesia.
Advantage Ownership Program
The Moorings Advantage Program is designed for individuals that want to operate a yacht as a business. Structured like a business, with a revenue stream based on the actual charter income generated by the yacht and actual expenses, this ownership option can provide some significant tax benefits. Unlike other programs of its kind, this program is operated in an organized structure that will assure compliance with current IRS code regulations and IRS Safe Harbor Rules. This program is only available for US Citizens.

Private Yacht Ownership
