Truffles

I am looking at investing in truffles.  The company I am looking at is a science and technology company.  You can invest from £33,000 and you invest in the trees which are husbanded and grown in a sort of hydroponic environment then start producing truffles anywhere from year 3 to year 12.  You sell after 15 years to avoid the French tax system and reap not only an ROI of 545% but also that the land the trees are planted on will have gone up in value. Are there any fellow investors on this forum?

Whisky

I have heard that fine Whisky is a good investment.  I am looking for a small-time investment and the entry level is £5000.  I am looking at a 15% return, and selling after 5 years making a 132% profit.  Does this sound too good to be true to anyone?

Investing in yachts

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?

Help with lodge in Northumberland

My parents have just bought a lodge in Northumberland.  They have paid an extortionate amount of money for it and I am worried.  They have a certain number of weeks they can use, and the rest are rented out and they get the rental income.  10% of what they have paid which works out at £30k annually. Then a 5 year buy back guarantee.

St Kitts and Nevis

I have the opportunity to invest in real estate in the Caribbean:  does anyone know anything about St Kitts and Nevis? It's investing $250,000 but it allows the use of the villa, 4 passports, no income tax or capital gains.  It's only a thought, as it looks appealing. No bashing, please.
