IS IT REALLY WORTH IT???
Living life the way you want is priceless. But really, how much is it going to cost? Earned income depends on the type of chartering you choose:
In bareboat (fully managed without full-time crew) – the boat income will cover its basic operating expenses and typically give the owner a contribution of income that will cover a principal and interest payment, generally assuming a 25% down and 7% financing over a 20year term.
With Crewed – the boat income will typically cover the majority of operating expenses, including crew’s salaries + insurance. But will provide minimal additional income for covering the financing expenses.
There are also added TAX BENEFITS to chartering your yacht.
The real value is your own enjoyment – sailing your own yacht in beautiful, pristine surroundings, cruising the waters of your choice.
Bareboat charters are usually based out of one location and are a hands-off charter management option for the owners. The charter company handles bookings, marketing and maintenance. All the owners need to do is enjoy sailing their yacht and cashing their income checks!
