6 Reasons to Own a Yacht

Business Yacht Ownership®Client Experience

Life is just a little sweeter on a boat. Buying a yacht is a life-changing investment and soon after your purchase, you’ll start to experience the positive benefits. When you own a luxury yacht, you will always be able to experience somewhere new. Below, we explore 6 great reasons to own a boat:

1. Boating Reduces Stress

Modern life is full of demands coming from our phones, computers, and all the other electronic devices designed to keep us busy. Now there’s more research than ever about how breaking away from our routines for a moment of self-care is crucial to avoid burning out. The “blue mind” phenomenon refers to the relaxed and meditative state our brains experience when we are in, on, or near water¹. Unplugging will be easy to do on your own yacht.

2. Design Your Vacation

And with your kitchen on board, you can eat and stay comfortable no matter where you decide to go. There’s no better place to make lasting memories with friends and family.

3. Use it for Business Meetings

Meet with clients or take your team out on the water for unforgettable bonding experiences. With a growing economy, it’s more important than ever to differentiate yourself to retain employees and clients. Celebrate a new partnership or an exceptional business year during a sunset on the water.

4. Ownership is Surprisingly Affordable

Purchasing a boat or yacht is a substantial investment, but it can be more affordable than you think. The Business Yacht Ownership® program is our most popular way to own. We host regular live webinars by independent tax advisor and certified financial planner, Bill Lahr, to explain how you can own your yacht, your way with the potential to offset 80-100% of new yacht costs. Sign up for one of our live webinars to learn more.

5. Learn New Skills
