Investing in yachts

  • 04 October at 18:44 - by Ronnie.S - 7019 views


I was just at the Southampton Boat Show and someone suggested I buy a share in a yacht.  It was a quarter share and you had it for a certain time annually. The company would take  care of the maintenance etc dry docking if necessary blah blah but you had the usage along with 3 other investors.  Would like to hear any experience?

I own a share of a villa in Florida.  Works on the same lines. Owned it for years.  Works excellently for us.

if you use it then it's a great idea if you don't then seems a waste of time

I would be very interested I don't think you're going to actually earn much money but you certainly would get good use if that's your bag so you'd have to weigh it up against what you would spend anyway chartering a yacht.  We did the same with our villa and after your break even in about year 5 your quids in
