The Forward Sale Agreement
The Forward Sale Agreement 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 Sales and Charter Forward Sale Agreement yacht owner, you receive these benefits:
Owners may use the vessel for up to 6 weeks of sailing split between high and low seasons through the worldwide reciprocal owner use agreement.
At Dream Yacht Charter, we partner with businesses that have the highest levels of expertise. When it comes to financing your boat, and understanding the financial aspects of charter yacht ownership, we work with Finlease, who will handle everything, from application through to approval.
Owners are guaranteed income of 3% based on their 45% to 55% buyer’s payment.
The agreement covers 84 months in a French territory or jurisdiction.
Zero Operating Expenses
As an owner, you have no out-of-pocket expenses for the duration of the agreement. All maintenance, insurance, dockage etc. is paid by Dream Yacht Sales and Charter.
At the end of the agreement, you may keep your yacht or choose to sell it. We have brokerage offices around the world that will assist in marketing your yacht for resale to assure a seamless transition.
