Yacht Ownership

Are you are thinking of buying a new yacht and putting her with a charter fleet? Speak to us about the best deals for you. With over 18 years experience of yacht charter throughout the Mediterranean and Caribbean, Nautilus Yachting is ideally qualified to advise you on yacht charter management.

Many people would love to own their own yacht but are put off not so much by the initial investment but by the ongoing expense of mooring fees, insurance and seemingly endless maintenance costs. They also find that they have limited time to spend on their yacht and do not want to spend most of this time cleaning, preparing and tinkering with their pride and joy. The end result is that they spend less time sailing than they would have hoped and at greater expense than they had planned.

With the banks currently offering derisory savings rates, the return on yacht investment can look most attractive. And with your yacht based in the Med or Caribbean you don’t need to factor in the unpredictable British weather!

The top reputable and well-established fleets worldwide, with whom we have worked for many years, offer yacht charter management schemes for new yachts and catamarans and we are happy to advise on which is best for you.  We offer a wide range of yacht ownership programmes. Here are a few examples:


Kiriacoulis have one of the largest charter fleets in the world with over 400 yachts in 26 bases throughout the Mediterranean in Greece, Croatia, Turkey, Italy and France plus Martinique in the Caribbean. This gives you the opportunity of either using your own yacht or a similar yacht in another location. There are 2 ways to own your own yacht, both of which appeal in their different ways:

Guaranteed income
Pay the full price of your Kiriacoulis yacht equipped to the level required for their charter fleet. You will then receive a guaranteed annual income over the next 3 ½ or 5 ½ years. The income is 9-10% per annum on the purchase price for 5 ½ years or 11-12% over 3 ½ years, depending on the exact model of yacht. At the end of the programme you can take the yacht out of charter to sell or keep as your personal yacht. Many owners trade their yacht in towards the purchase of a new charter yacht to maintain the income.

Single payment
If you prefer a smaller up-front payment, pay a percentage of the purchase price, usually 55-59% for a 5 ½ year scheme. You receive no income during this period but full ownership pf the yacht is yours at the conclusion to sell or keep as your personal yacht. 
With both schemes there is NO additional costs for mooring, insurance or maintenance and you will receive a number of FREE sailing weeks on your yacht or a similar yacht from another base.


Many of our clients have experienced first-hand the quality of yachts in the Odysseus fleet based in Palairos in the Southern Ionian in Greece. This family-run charter operation has been in business for over 35 years offering bareboat and flotilla sailing holidays.

Single payment
Buy a new yacht to join the fleet in the Ionian for just 58% of the cost without any additional expenses and after 5 ½ years take full ownership of your yacht. No further payments are required from you and all costs such as insurance, mooring fees, repairs and maintenance will be entirely covered by Odysseus. Sit back and enjoy the rewards of yacht partnership, including up to 8 weeks of FREE sailing weeks on your yacht.

Guaranteed income
Pay the full price of your yacht fully equipped for the charter legislation requirements. You will then receive a guaranteed annual income over the next 3 ½ or 5 ½ years at your choice, with an income of 9-10% per annum on the purchase price for 3 ½ years, or 8 -9% over 5 ½ years, depending on the model and size of yacht.


Purchase a yacht or catamaran through Horizon Yacht Sales in four locations throughout the Caribbean – British Virgin Islands, Antigua, Grenada or St Martin.

Charter income
You can keep it for your private use in these idyllic locations or place it for charter with this very successful British-run charter fleet.
