Many people looking to buy a yacht have previously experienced renting a boat in a lake or for a river cruise and then progressed to the open sea with a larger sailboat or yacht and then the sailing bug has really bitten. However, often when chartering the boats available can be older and outdated vessels which are not quite as luxury as you desire.

For those that have really enjoyed sailing, the urge to own even a basic yacht may be the next step. After all, owning your own sailing yacht guarantees the flexibility and availability that chartering does not. As such, many people who have chartered yachts in the past often investigate the ownership prospects of purchasing new vessels or even previously owned yachts so that they can take their dream to the next level.

The significant expenditures associated with owning a yacht are sometimes the main drawback to taking this step into owning your own yacht. Many yacht owners overlook other expenses such as slip fees, bank charges, maintenance, insurance, fuel, haul-outs, and numerous other costs, even if they have the means to make the needed down payment on the yacht itself, so it is important to understand the extra costs involved in owning a yacht that you wouldn’t otherwise have to pay if you are only chartering.

A yacht owner who owns a high-end vessel, may realise that they are spending thousands of dollars per month for a vessel that they only use a handful of times each year. Finding a less costly yacht is a possibility, but the fees you will pay no matter which yacht you choose won't change much in terms of the overall price tag.
