CHARTER MANAGEMENT PROGRAMMES
Dream Yacht Charter is the only charter management company that offers six individually designed charter management programmes. These programmes include pre-approved financing, guaranteed monthly payments or performance based income. In addition, you may be eligible for substantial tax benefits. Dream Yacht Charter helps you make an informed decision and helps with a planned exit strategy for maximum resale value of your yacht.
Dream Yacht Charter offers boats from eight major brands and models in any of our 47 locations worldwide with reciprocal owner time, customized layouts, specifications and interiors. Whether you are in the market for a sail, power or crewed yacht, Dream Yacht Charter has the most choices for your dream yacht. And of course, every Dream Yacht purchase includes personal attention from the biggest owner-operated charter company in the world.
GUARANTEED INCOME PROGRAMME
The Guaranteed Income Programme is Dream Yacht Charter’s easiest and most trouble-free ownership programme. You’ll own a luxurious sailboat at one of our select bases worldwide, collect a 9% guaranteed payment with no risk, and sail the world for up to 12 weeks with our reciprocal owner use programme.
PERFORMANCE / ACTIVE YACHT OWNERSHIP
The Performance / Active Yacht Ownership Programme can dramatically lower costs over a short time by simply applying these tax laws. An owner can legitimately benefit from substantial tax benefits to create equity in their new yacht. We urge potential buyers to seek the advice of qualified tax advisors.
DREAM EASY PROGRAMME
Dream Yacht Charter has purchased from Lagoon and Beneteau about 70 luxury sailboats, which will be placed in charter around the world. Own one of these luxury yachts with only 35 percent down and a balloon payment of 25 percent at the end of the 5-year term. There is no expense to the owner and worldwide reciprocal owner use is available.
The Partnership Programme is an opportunity for owners to own a yacht from only 55% with no further costs for the duration of the programme. You own a luxurious sailboat at one of our worldwide bases and may sail for 12 weeks through our reciprocal owner use programme (This programme is available only in certain locations- please inquire).
FORWARD SALE AGREEMENT
The Forward Sale Agreement Programme exists through a French tax incentive. A buyer receives an up-front 45 to 55 percent discount on the purchase price of a brand new Catana, Lagoon, Beneteau or Jeanneau. Consequently, only the 45 to 55 percent balance is due at closing. Under this programme, owners may enjoy 4 to 6 weeks of sailing per year at no expense, yet still earn 3 to 4 percent annual guaranteed income based on the 45 to 55 percent 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.
CREWED YACHT PROGRAMME
The Crewed Yacht Programme is as varied and diverse as Dream Yacht Charter’s locations.
With its specialised and custom features, the programme can be tailored to meet an owner’s individual requirements. Placing a new yacht into the programme provides all the benefits of owning a deluxe sailing yacht minus the expense and challenges of traditional ownership.
