The Right Yacht For You
Most cruising boat buyers are interested in yacht ownership for many of the same reasons: dreams of freedom, adventure, travel, closeness to nature, peaceful evenings on the dock or at anchor, and more. However, not all buyers have the same needs when it comes to boat ownership.
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.
This site introduces a handful of ownership programs, explains the benefits of different ownership styles, and also offers tips for purchasing and owning a yacht.
