What is Yacht Fractional Ownership - Yacht Shares ?


Fractional ownership is "the division of an asset into portions or shares", offering more affordable segments for individuals and matching ownership time to actual usage time. With a fractional yacht, a group of people share ownership of the yacht, each paying their part of the purchase and subsequent running costs. Each owner has title to a percentage of the asset. If one share doesn’t provide as much time as you would like, members can buy multiple fractions. Shares can be sold or traded like any other asset. Only one owner uses the yacht at a time.


What advantages are there in shared ownership?


Shared Ownership is a solution to cater for those who want to go boating every year but are not going to make use of the boat for more than a few weeks each year. This system enables you to buy into a far higher quality boat than you might otherwise be able to afford and then to reduce the running costs compared with sole ownership by dividing all the costs amongst the owners.


Why shouldn't I buy a Yacht or boat for myself?


There are several reasons for not buying your own yacht or boat, the biggest reason being the initial capital outlay. Then there is the cost of the mooring, licensing, insurance and the maintenance. As the sole owner of a boat you would probably only use it 4 or 5 times a year which is not advisable as boats like to be used, otherwise they deteriorate much faster than if they are run regularly.


What about the yearly operating costs of Shared Yacht Ownership ?


Generally they are around 8% - 12% of the purchase price of the yacht. However, you must always remember that with Yacht Fractional Ownership, you are not on your own. Sharing ALL the costs with your co - owners is a very clever way to share the overall annual expenditure . Costs are fairly similar with Yacht moorings and maintenance so are proportionately divided between the yacht share owners. As a Co-owner you will only pay for what you own and use.


What happens if the boat has a breakdown?


If the syndicate uses a management company, it will explain the procedure. Self managed syndicates will need to contact their home base or a nearby yard, or the syndicate may use the services of  Rescue service. The cost of call-outs is normally charged to syndicate funds. Regular maintenance is the best way of reducing the risk of breakdowns when you're cruising.


Do I need training before using a shared ownership boat?


Many syndicate agreements now recommend that owners have appropriate training. Owners who have done so, generally find that it improves their confidence and the enjoyment of their boat.


Do you provide a management service ?


No we are simply a Yacht Share listing website for people to find other Shareholders
