Many of MacGregor Yachts’ clients are passionate about life on the sea, which is no surprise. That’s why several choose to own a luxury motor yacht in addition to their sportfishing boat and center console. Owning a motor yacht operation has its own advantages and challenges — if it’s something you’re interested in, keep reading to find out if it’s right for you.
The Luxuries of Owning A Motor Yacht Operation
There is no replacement for traveling the world by luxury motor yacht. It opens up doors of opportunity, and you always have somewhere new to go. The possibilities are endless, and you can easily entertain family, friends, and colleagues across the globe.
Plus, if you choose to include different vessels in your operation, you expand the sites that you’re able to access and the things you can do. Each vessel is used for a unique purpose and offers a different experience for you to explore.
The Challenges of Running A Motor Yacht Operation
The challenges of running your own motor yacht operation come down to expenses. It can be costly to ensure that the important details of managing crew, arranging dockage, organizing itinerary, fueling, and general yacht maintenance are taken care of.
The average estimate is that annual operating costs will be around 10% of the yacht’s purchase price. That figure most certainly will vary vessel by vessel. And it will also vary depending on where you’re traveling, what you’ll be doing, and if you’ll be including additional vessels and tenders in the operation.
That being said, there are a number of yacht management companies out there to make the complexities of ownership as easy and stress-free as possible. And if you’re prepared, then the benefits of traveling the world by luxury motor yacht is completely worth it.
