Mega yacht owners are the privileged elite of the yachting world, traveling the world in the luxury provided by their opulent vessels. If you are planning to join this exclusive club with a mega yacht purchase of your own, you will find there are some significant issues to consider that you may not have faced with your earlier yacht purchases. The following guide will give you a better idea of the decisions you face when buying a mega yacht boat.
Selecting your Mega Yacht
You have complete freedom to determine your specific path to mega yacht ownership, investing as much or as little time in developing your dream as you choose. New vessels are available with differing degrees of personalization; with a production yacht, you choose from a builder’s selection of stock inventory models, customizing just a few details and options to suit your tastes. Semi-custom yachts offer a greater degree of personalization while still remaining consistent in the main systems, bridge, and deck layouts. For the very highest quality vessel, you can work closely with a talented builder to create the custom superyacht of your dreams, where every detail of the build is designed to your exact specifications. New superyachts can take anywhere from several months to several years to complete; if you want to start enjoying your new lifestyle immediately, an existing mega yacht is your best choice. There are thousands of different makes and models of luxury mega yachts currently on the market and ready for immediate purchase.
Financing your Mega Yacht Purchase
Whether you purchase a new or existing vessel, your superyacht purchase may need to be financed by several banks. Terms are typically available that will let you delay a portion of the loan and interest repayments until the end of the loan term, when you can repay it through the use of sale proceeds or by refinancing.
Mooring for your Mega Yacht
One of the decisions you face is deciding where you will keep your mega yacht. Mooring prices vary from port to port, but are always a major expense, particularly in the more exclusive Mediterranean harbors. Before deciding whether to rent or purchase your superyacht berth, seek expert advice to determine exactly what you are purchasing, if there are any additional charges that can be levied, and the tax implications the purchase will have for you and your vessel.
Signing a Crew for your Mega Yacht
Operating a luxury mega yacht requires a crew; manning levels are determined by the size and style of yacht you choose. When purchasing an existing yacht, it is a good idea to keep on the current crew as they are already familiar with the vessel; you can actually make the signing of new contracts with the old crew a condition of purchase.
