Want To Know How A Boat Business Can Benefit You?

Lagoon 400 S2

If so, check in with us to get an independent and unbiased look at this boat business program. Not only do we advise clients on the “Boat as a Business” program/concept, but have personally benefitted from it with our own catamaran businesses. In our experience, yacht charter management, together with active participation by the owner, is a great way to reduce the cost of yacht ownership.

It is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking to buy a new yacht at a substantial “discount”! We happily share our personal experience, as well as that of our clients, with potential yacht buyes! 

Stephen Cockcroft is an expert in both operating a boat business and setting up a yacht charter business so that you can take advantage of substantial tax advantages and generate income from operations.

  • Catamaran Guru™ has access to the most stable and flexible yacht ownership programs in the industry
  • All catamaran brands available for this program - Fountaine Pajot, Lagoon, Bali, Catana, Nautitech, Dufour, and many more
  • Yacht customization to your specifications including owner's versions
  • Flexible duration of the charter management terms – not locked into a 5-year term
  • Unlimited options for generating revenue – NOT restricted to ONLY 10 WEEKS of charter by lenders that cannot offer unlimited charter finance.
  • Largest management and infrastructure platform in the world ensures that results match financials – ACCOUNTABILITY from start to finish
  • Seamless management for warranty and maintenance all under one roof from the time of purchase to the sale of your boat – do not end up in a fractured structure where you are sent downstream to a regional charter company by the dealer and accountability becomes unclear

  • Yachts are purchased FACTORY DIRECT with no US dealer involved to ensure the best value to the buyer

Don’t be fooled! Although the acquisition of a new yacht may be an effective business tool to take advantage of these tax rules, the tax benefits must be carefully planned, documented, and implemented to make sure that it can withstand scrutiny. While you want to make sure that you buy a yacht that will suit your individual financial and personal goals, you also want to make sure that your “yacht charter business” is set up in compliance with tax authorities.
