The benefits of Yacht Co-Ownership

05 Dec 2017

There is nothing better on a hot summer’s day than the feeling of the wind in your hair, the salt spray on your face and your loved ones laughing happily at your side as you whip along the blue ocean waters on-board a beautiful boat – the worries of business and daily stresses left back at the dock.

But this luxury lifestyle comes at a price, and its one that few think they can afford. But with co-ownership shares in a luxury motor yacht, owning this lifestyle is easier, and more affordable, than you may think. Not only does purchasing shares in a yacht negate the huge financial obligation that comes with owning your own yacht but you also have none of the inconvenience.

Derrick Levy, who started Boating World in 1999 and has nurtured the company into Africa’s leading importer and distributor of luxury motor yachts explains, “We professionally manage every last detail, meaning the only thing you need to do is step on board. This is the perfect option for those who don’t want the commitment and expense of full-time boat ownership and everything that comes with it. Yacht co-ownership gives you the joy and lifestyle of boat ownership at a price tag that will pleasantly surprise.”

When you purchase full ownership or co-ownership shares in a luxury motor yacht, you can also rest easy knowing that the team at Boating World will be on hand to arrange skipper’s training should you need it and will teach you how to best use your craft. We will also arrange all the yacht cleaning and maintenance, moorings and staff, tending to every need through our network of qualified partners. Because the joy of yacht co-ownership is that it is a hassle-free experience.

You can choose from a variety of brand new powerful sailing and motor yachts with sophisticated shapes and styles manufactured by leading brands in the luxury yachting industry, with a popular choice being the Fairline brand. Fairline Yachts offer the quality of build that one would want for a co-ownership agreement. Instantly recognisable, the Fairline range combines superior engineering with elegant styling and finishing’s and top-of-the-range equipment. The proportions of their vessels are also perfectly balanced to make maximum use of space and light. With Fairline, co-ownership does not mean compromise.

The latest addition to Boating World's co-ownership offering is the Fairline Squadron 53 flybridge, and is the new version of Fairline’s much-loved existing 53ft hull but with an improved stylish design from the deck upwards, offering flowing, sociable spaces and luxuriously equipped living areas. While owners can choose between three or four staterooms, Boating World loves the three-bed option with a light and airy master cabin which is perfectly complemented by a forward double guest cabin and a versatile twin cabin to port.

The muscular Targa range is another great option from Fairline, offering clean and contemporary styling in the form of modern express cruisers. Choose between the Targa 53 GT and 53 Open or go for the Targa 63 GTO which will be arriving on shores all over the world soon and is the flagbearer of Fairline’s design future. Relax and stretch out with uninterrupted entertaining areas, while enjoying the clean, sleek profiles these well-proven designs deliver. Spending time aboard couldn’t be a more pleasurable affair with a Fairline Targa.

Successful boat co-ownership agreements are built on successful relationships and meticulous management and this is where Boating World comes in. We take care of all your worries and the logistics of boat ownership, ensuring a pleasant partnership agreement where you can share your dreams with like-minded individuals!
