Why Buy a Yacht? Charter like You Own It

Guests enjoy views of the Mediterranean aboard a luxury Sunseeker motor yacht

Looking to buy a yacht? If you ask around, no boat owner will deny the fact that the reality of having a vessel of one’s own will, at some point past the honeymoon period, show its true nautical colours – turning out to be less of a lifetime dream and more of an endless chore.

Rent a Yacht, Don’t Buy One

Not to mention the boat market’s rapid depreciation rate, sometimes leading up to 40% value losses within the first five years of purchase. As the saying goes, a boat is a hole in the water you pour money into. So why waste time and money on a purchased boat all year round when you can simply rent a yacht and just enjoy the good bit?

Yacht Hire, When You Want It

Remember that if you were to own a boat, the end of your holiday would not exempt you from any upkeep responsibilities that come with having this asset in your possession. It ultimately works out that in order to enjoy, say, a relaxing week-long yacht holiday across the Mediterranean, you’ll have to pay one hefty price that makes no financial sense whatsoever. That’s of course the hassle, hustle and bustle of making sure your vessel is kept pristine for the rest of the year, every single year. How's that for making you rethink your boat-owning revels twice, three times over?
