Do you have any plans for buying a new sailing ship? If so, we got a fine cooperation to propose.
As a yacht owner, Flevo Yachtcharter offers you the possibility to keep sailing your yacht almost for free throughout the year in terms of costs, without any worries. While you can sail it as often and as long as you wish. Without having to worry about technical maintenance or repairs. The keyword for such a construct is buy & charter.
Briefly put, here is how it works:
You buy a yacht, provide it with insurance coverage and the costs for booking an annual berth at our marina.
Then you sail your yacht whenever and for how long you wish during that year (or longer, obviously depends on the contract).
We take care of the maintenance of your yacht and we market your ship to other sailors who can book it for brief periods of time. Therewith, we will generate income from your yacht, for you. Because with the buy & charter construct, whenever you don’t use your ship you can choose to make it available to other sailors. We handle all the procedures around that activity, from preparations between one charter and the next to a carefully documented technical maintenance, marketing & communications. Including the booking processes and all related administration.
In other words: You’ll have the option to have lots of sailing fun, minimise your costs and even and generate additional income for yourself at the same time. Interesting detail: Should you buy your yacht for a business purpose, no VAT will be applicable to the purchase amount. In other words, you would have to pay substantially less for the yacht in such a case.
How would your ship be used?
The yachts available via Flevo Yacthcharter’s sailing fleet are chartered for our three main business activities:
Within our charter programs, during our corporate sailing events or for the sailing courses of our sailing school. The latter is a sailing school for adults, teaching (prevalently in Dutch and German) only advanced sailing specials as described here.
In either such a case, you as yacht owner will receive 65% of the respective income thus generated. While we ensure that your ship stays in top condition during the entire contract time we agreed upon. Besides keeping your yacht clean at all times, this also would include qualified technical maintenance and inspections to be done on a very regular base. Together with you we will discuss and agree upon scope and type(s) of these maintenance works to perform, prior to starting them.
Does that sound interesting? Then contact us for details! Feel free to make an appointment with us and meet us for a talk, any time.
We´ll take the time to answer all your questions and lay out our proposal in more detail.
Also, we prepared a brochure about our Buy & Charter concept which explains it in a nutshell.
