Questions asked when buying a luxury yacht:
Question 1: What is a luxury yacht’s average purchase price and what does it include?
Yacht prices vary according to the quality, size and personalization you desire. While it is possible to find a yacht for less than a million euros, the majority of luxury yacht sales range in the multi-million euro range, with superyachts ranging in the tens and hundreds of millions of euros.
When you make your offer to buy, it is normal to deposit 10% of the offer price in escrow. The offer is almost always contingent on three conditions; sea trial, survey and ability to obtain financing if you aren’t already pre-approved.
At the time you submit your offer, you’ll also want to ensure you take an accurate inventory of the vessel using photographs so it is clear what is to be included in the offer and purchase price.
Interest and Depreciation
Question 2: How much depreciation should I expect each year for a yacht?
Much like a new car, a new boat depreciates most during the first year. A rule of thumb is to expect 10% depreciation in year one and 6-8% for the following four or five years. The vessel’s depreciation will typically level off after to just a few percentage points after that. Of course, buying a used yacht will produce less of a depreciation hit.
Question 3: What are the operating costs for a luxury yacht?
According to a report by Towergate Insurance, expect maintenance to cost you around 10% of the yacht’s initial price tag on an annual basis. So the owner of a €10 million yacht should expect to pay a minimum €1 million every year to keep it operating. Owners should consider the cost of food, crews, fuel, title registration and insurance, docking fees, plus maintenance & repairs.
Fortunately, to offset the costs of your yacht, buyers can charter their yacht to recover some of those expenses. In fact, your luxury yacht sales broker can create a business plan before you purchase your yacht to structure the associated costs and income you can expect.
Superyacht buying, selling the ability to negotiate at the highest levels.
In small boat circles, there are dozens of jokes surrounding the ownership of a yacht. One suggests that it is akin to standing under a cold shower shredding banknotes and watching them disappear down the drain. Another suggests that there are only two days of happiness when it comes to boat ownership; the first is the day you hand over the money to buy your yacht, the second is the day you sell her.
Owners of superyachts want the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their investment is being both run safely and efficiently. With more legislation than ever before now applying to yachts, it is essential for owners to surround themselves with those people who have the industry expertise needed to ensure that owning a superyacht remains a pleasure.
