Fly Yachts’ Frequently Asked Questions

What are the key factors to consider when selecting a yacht?

Key factors include budget, size and type of yacht, intended use (e.g., cruising, racing), maintenance costs, and potential for resale value. It’s important to align these factors with your personal needs and boating aspirations.

How does yacht length affect maintenance and operational costs?

The length of the yacht typically correlates with higher maintenance and operational costs. Larger yachts often require more fuel, larger crew, and increased maintenance efforts, thereby impacting overall expenses.

What is the difference between a motor yacht and a sailing yacht?

A motor yacht is powered by engines, offering more space and luxury amenities, while a sailing yacht is primarily wind-powered, often favored for the sport and the connection to the sea it provides.

How should I budget for unexpected expenses when owning a yacht?

It’s recommended to set aside 10-20% of the yacht’s value annually for maintenance, repairs, and unforeseen costs. This ensures you’re prepared for any unexpected expenses that may arise.

What is the significance of a yacht’s beam and draft?

The beam, or width, influences the yacht’s stability and interior space, while the draft, or depth below the waterline, affects where the yacht can navigate and anchor safely.

Can I take a sea trial before finalizing my yacht purchase?

Absolutely, a sea trial is crucial in assessing the yacht’s performance, systems, and comfort levels. Fly Yachts always encourages prospective buyers to experience the yacht firsthand.

What should I look for during a yacht inspection?

During an inspection, look for the overall condition of the yacht, signs of damage, quality of construction, engine and electrical system functionality, and any evidence of necessary repairs or maintenance.

How can I determine the resale value of a yacht?

Resale value can be influenced by brand reputation, maintenance history, market demand, and the yacht’s age. Consulting with Fly Yachts’ experts can provide you with a realistic estimate.

Is yacht ownership a good investment?

Yacht ownership can be a lifestyle investment that offers unique experiences. Financially, some luxury models maintain value well, but typically yachts depreciate, thus they’re not traditional investments.

How does Fly Yachts assist buyers in selecting the right yacht?

Fly Yachts provides personalized consultancy, matching buyers with yachts that fit their lifestyle and budget, arranges sea trials, and guides them through the purchasing process with expert advice.
