Yacht Ownership Programs
Dream Yacht Ownership is the most affordable way to explore the world’s favourite sailing destinations without the ongoing chard work and expense of traditional ownership.
Our varied choice of purchase programs also allow you to benefit from up to 12 weeks a year sailing on either your own or a similar yacht in a different Dream destination (upgrade options available). Whilst under management by Dream for usually 5.5 years, you enjoy all the benefits associated with yacht ownership, but without any of the running costs and uncertainty.
At the end of the program, you can choose to either:
- Keep the yacht
- Trade the yacht in for a new model and enjoy another 5 years of hassle free cruising
- Sell the yacht privately or through our extensive brokerage network
- Australian Management
- Dream Performance
- Dream Easy
- Dream Easy Buyback
- Dream Guarantee
- Dream Partnership
- Fractional Ownership
The Australian Management Program is for the Whitsundays Dream Yacht Charter Base. This program is for new vessels to be placed in Charter with us, as an option along with the choice of the other Programs and locations, it is also available for some selected second hand privately owned vessels offered for Charter by the Owners (If they are suitable after inspection – the criteria being – condition, age, size – no of cabins and heads, brand and suitability for Charter – must be surveyed for Charter in the Whitsundays as a bareboat charter vessel).
The Dream Performance Program/Active Yacht Ownership Program can dramatically lower costs over a short time simply by applying tax laws. Owners may legitimately benefit from substantial tax benefits or advantages in order to create equity in their new yacht. We urge potential buyers to seek the advice of qualified tax advisors. With this program, you can own a luxury yacht with a down payment of 20%.
Periodically, Dream Yacht Sales makes a certain number of yachts available in this program. They will be placed in charter locations around the world.Own one of these luxury yachts with only 35% down and a balloon payment of 25% at the end of the 66-month term. There is no expense to the owner, and worldwide reciprocal owner use is available. Dream Yacht Sales and Charter retains title to the yacht until payment is received at the end of 66 months
Our Dream Easy Buyback Programme allows you to enjoy the very best sailing holidays, concerned only with which beautiful destination to visit next. The high costs associated with outright ownership (berthing, maintenance, insurance) are zero with this programme, as is the hassle factor. If you do not wish to own the boat at the end of your contract, we return 10% of your original purchase price and you simply walk away.
The Guaranteed Income Program is Dream Yacht Sales and Dream Yacht Charter’s easiest and most trouble-free ownership program. With just 20% down (for qualified buyers) you’ll own a luxurious sailboat at one of our select bases worldwide, collect a guaranteed payment of up to 9% with no risk, and sail the world for up to 12 weeks each year with our reciprocal owner use program. This program is not available at all bases. Please ask for details.
Partnership Program Owners can purchase a yacht with only a 55% investment and no further costs for the duration of the program. You own a luxurious sailboat at one of our worldwide bases and may sail for up to 12 weeks a year through our reciprocal owner use program. (Note: This program is available only in certain locations and for monohull yachts only – please enquire.)
The Fractional Ownership Program exists through a French tax incentive. A buyer receives an up-front discount of up to 55% on the purchase price of a brand new Beneteau, Jeanneau or Lagoon catamaran. Consequently, only the 45% to 55% balance is due at closing. Under this program, owners may enjoy up to 6 weeks of sailing per year at no expense and yet still earn 3% annual, guaranteed income based on the 45% to 55% owner’s investment. The yacht must be operated for 7 years in a French territory such as Martinique, Guadeloupe or Tahiti. There is no early exit possible.
