If you have a dream of owning a boat or yacht but your finances just don’t reach that far or you don’t have the time to maintain one, then fractional yacht or boat ownership could be for you. Research indicates that the average boat owner use their boat no more than 33 days in any one year.
Boat owners know that the expense of owning / maintaining them are endless. Fractional ownership allows you to own a yacht or boat at a fraction of the cost of sole ownership and without the direct cost for maintenance. It’s a bit like hiring a hotel room for your holiday. When you want to use your boat or yacht it will be waiting for you fully maintained, cleaned and serviced with fresh linen awaiting you. You can even use the services of a skipper!
So that sounds great right? But what does fractional ownership actually mean? Fractional yacht or boat ownership means that you will own a percentage of the asset, therefore you receive the use of the vessel without all the added extra costs. A company will manage the boat / yacht on behalf of you (and other shareholders) and you as the owner will pay fees (possibly monthly or annually) for the management of the boat or yacht.
When you are looking into fractional vessel ownership, it’s important to look for a professional company that clearly states what they will offer you. Ask about their experience in the field and for a complete list of their services. The whole idea of fractional ownership is that you don’t have the financial stresses of sole ownership. This means that you can invest more time on the water enjoying the vessel of your choice, with friends and family alike.
Is fractional yacht / boat ownership for you? Yes:
– If you appreciate the benefits of vessel ownership but don’t appreciate the financial burden
– If you realise that in owning a vessel you just won’t have the time to use it as often as you would like nor to maintain it
– If you are looking for a better utilisation of your finances, rather than non-productive expense of hiring a charter
– If you have dreams of owning a bigger or more luxurious boat than you could otherwise afford
Search for the boat or yacht of your choice under fractional ownership so that you can start packing your togs, sunscreen, food & wine and organise your friends for a trip out on the open waters in your luxury boat or yacht.
