The parent company behind world famous yachting industry brands The Moorings, Sunsail and Leopard Catamarans introduces a new way to look at yacht ownership options with the launch of YachtOwnership.com. The “How to Own a Yacht” website exhibits a variety of ways to purchase a boat, including: charter ownership, private ownership and pre-owned yacht ownership. This site incorporates a handful of ownership programs, explains the benefits of different ownership styles, and also offers helpful tips and advice for choosing and purchasing a yacht.
Traditional private ownership is no longer the only option when it comes to searching for the perfect boat. The growth of the yacht charter industry has brought with it new ways to own, and now there are more opportunities for people to experience the dream of having their very own yacht.
YachtOwnership.com includes helpful tips about each type of ownership opportunity. For example, charter yacht management programs commonly attract buyers who appreciate cost-offsetting income, reduced maintenance responsibility, and sister ship usage opportunities around the world. Private yacht buyers enjoy complete flexibility and choice of equipment. Used boat buyers find value in yachts that are not only already depreciated, but often already outfitted for cruising. Though each style has its own selling points, they all offer access to what is most important to every buyer: time on the water.
Franck Bauguil, Vice President of Yacht Ownership and Yacht Sales, explains how this site came into being and its benefits:
“Yachtownership.com was on our “to do list” for several years, and I am glad this site is finally coming to life, thanks to our marketing team and the participation of the entire Yacht Sales team. Over the years, we realized that our customers were in fact contemplating and comparing various ways to own. With YachtOwnership.com, customers now have one place they can go to and learn about the different ownership solutions that our group offers, including: yacht charter management with Moorings or Sunsail, ex-charter or privately owned yachts from Moorings Brokerage, Sunsail Brokerage and newly launched Leopard Catamarans Brokerage, or new Leopard Catamarans that can be built to customer’s specifications.
This is also an opportunity to link all sites together, facilitate customer’s searches and provide a better online experience. This site gives us the opportunity to better service new and emerging markets that may not be as clearly segmented as more mature markets, and provides a platform for new customers who are eager to learn about the various ownership solutions. I hope this website provides an enjoyable experience and that we receive feedback from everyone who visits the site.”
The site also includes a special blog section that enables Sunsail, The Moorings, and Leopard Catamarans experienced sales agents to share their expertise with readers. The “Buying Tips Blog”, includes frequently updated information and articles on a multitude of sailing topics for beginners to the most experienced of sailors. Need help deciding on an interior layout for your yacht? Wanting to know more about hiring a surveyor? YachtOwnership.com is the perfect tool for all boat buying questions and useful information.
This innovative new site is intended to provide anyone in the market for a boat with the tools and advice they need to successfully purchase a yacht. As leaders in the yachting industry with decades of experience, The Moorings, Sunsail, and Leopard Catamarans can provide the knowledge and expertise needed to help guide clients through a seamless and easy boat selection and buying process.
