Thinking of buying a boat to enjoy blissful holidays? Visitors to the London Yacht Show can meet charter company Sunsail, and luxury sister brand The Moorings, and discover the joy of owning a first-class yacht without the hassle.

As well as up to 12 weeks holidays on board your yacht, from Croatia, Greece and Mallorca to St Lucia, Thailand and the Seychelles, being part of the yacht ownership programme also gives owners access to more than 20 bases and the choice of stunning holidays around the world.

Anastasia Stebner, Yacht Sales Marketing for Sunsail and the Moorings Yacht Ownership explained: “Owning your own yacht can cost as little as a two week annual charter holiday. We know that maintenance, insurance, dockage and logistics of owning a boat can be costly and off-putting. However, joining a yacht ownership programme means that although you own the boat, we take care of it for you. With zero operating, insurance and marina costs, a guaranteed income of 8% – 9% per annum or initially reduced purchase payment, 12 weeks use of the yacht per year and access to other yachts in more than 20 stunning yachting destinations worldwide owning your own yacht is more accessible than ever before.”

Joining the Sunsail or The Moorings yacht ownership programme is a perfect way for first time adventurers or seasoned sailors to spend more time out on the water enjoying the best parts of owning a boat – the freedom to explore and charm of waking up with a different view from your window every day.

The Yacht Ownership team are looking forward to helping visitors decide whether the Jeanneau or Beneteau monohulls and Leopard or Lagoon catamarans are most suited to their holiday needs. Couples tend to prefer the 34-41ft range and families will enjoy the 41-50ft. However, if owners want to take friends sailing there are various upgrade options for holidays where they will have more company.

Owners will pay for their own travel to the base, which may be arranged by Sunsail/Moorings or independently, a turnaround fee for cleaning of the yacht and linens and for preparation of the yacht including petrol for the outboard, butane for the stove and other such essentials. As a guide the turnaround fee for up to 49ft monohulls is £160 per trip. Owners may choose to prepay for diesel and damage waiver or simply leave a refundable deposit and top up the tank on their return to the base.
