Just what are the benefits of charter boat investment?

If you’re passionate about sailing, charter boat investment holds good potential. The key advantage for many people is the potential income and it’s true that charter ownership may help you recoup brokerage costs and invest towards your future.

Like any financial investment, there are things you need to consider before jumping in. It’s very important to be clear on upfront and ongoing costs, potential returns and your personal financial position and capacity to invest.

At Flagstaff Marine, our team are lifetime boating enthusiasts, and with decades of experience in the industry, we also know that our charter boat investors usually have more than money in mind when they decide to purchase one of our cruising yachts, multihulls, luxury trawlers or sports cruisers.

Here’s what you need to know about charter ownership – and the financial benefits.

Benefits for astute investors

Benefits for astute investors

While owning your own yacht or power boat is something many of us aspire to, the reality is that once you have a beautiful craft to call your own, life can get in the way. With a busy lifestyle, you may find that suddenly you’re only on board every few weeks, or even less often.

When you factor the regular repayments of your dream boat, marina fees, insurance, cleaning and maintenance costs, your collective outgoings can seem even greater when you’re not getting the most from your boat – namely regular life on board.

Charter boat investment can be a great option for astute investors, helping your recoup outlays, put income towards boat repayments… and maybe plan that retirement cruise or ultimate sailing adventure.

Income will vary based on several factors including the size and configuration of your boat, charter location and seasonal demand. We can help you select the right boat for charter.

As fellow ocean lovers, we know that there’s nothing better than hopping on board and sailing off into our gorgeous waterways, and charter boat investment can help you get there faster.

Boats are a serious investment, but charter ownership can help make that dream a reality by giving you the income to help pay off repayments – and it has added lifestyle benefits.

We can help for instance with cleaning, maintenance and other requirements. By taking hold of boat management, we help save you time and help you streamline your boat management needs.

Finance facts overview

Finance facts overview

Some people who purchase a yacht or power boat with us use existing funds, some opt for equity in existing properties and many decide on a dedicated boat loan.

We have years of expertise across the charter industry so we can provide you with a breakdown of potential incomes and expected outlays after purchase to help you make your decision. Bear in mind too that there may be tax implications or potential tax benefits if you use your boat for personal or commercial use, just as there is with property.

While we can recommend charter companies and give you all the details you need to know on charter ownership, we always recommend you seek independent, professional financial advice.
