The Forward Sale Agreement
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.
As a Dream Yacht Charter Fractional Owner Program yacht owner, you receive the following benefits:
Each quarter-share owner enjoys up to 5 weeks of sailing each year on your yacht or a sister ship at our exotic destinations worldwide. You may also upgrade your owners’ weeks to choose a larger boat or a catamaran. A marina berth is available for your use at no cost during the contract.
Receive guaranteed, fixed revenue regardless of charter activity depending on the location of the yacht. Dream Yacht Sales guarantees a 5% annual return on the cost of the yacht, paid annually to the LLC in which the yacht is held by the shareholding partners. The income will be used to pay for the management of the LLC.

Yacht Brands and Customization
You may choose from a large variety of high-end yacht manufacturers: Bali, Catana, Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon, Nautitech, Dufour, Bavaria, Beneteau, and Jeanneau.
