Charter Ownership

CHARTER OWNERSHIP


While many of our customers buy boats to use as private owners, we help other customers place their boats into a variety of charter programs that are specifically tailored to each owner's individual objectives.

This section of our website explains the various chartering options available and the many attractions of this route to ownership:

  • not only can ownership expenses be defrayed, but real income can be generated
  • and if operated as a business, additional tax advantages are available
  • the yacht is kept in a desirable location, particularly for the winter sailing season if placed in the Caribbean
  • the yacht and its systems can be regularly and professionally maintained on your behalf

Try Before You Buy

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY


Many people are interested in gaining greater experience of sailing a catamaran before making a final purchase decision - they want to try before they buy.

If you charter a catamaran that Sound Yachting has helped set up in charter in either New England or the Caribbean and subsequently buy a new catamaran from us within 12 months of the charter we will discount the purchase price of the new catamaran by the cost of the charter rental, thus allowing you to "try before you buy" FOR FREE.
