News Alert 06/13/2014: Great News For Yacht As A Business buyers!

Legislative update: House Passes Section 179 Expensing Increase

buy this saba 50 catamaran and save big with section 179 tax deductions extended for 2014The House approved two bills this week that would permanently extend several expired provisions, permanently extending the increased section 179 expense maximum for small business investment from $25,000 to $500,000.

This is great news for those who are looking to offset the cost of yacht ownership. By placing their yachts into management to operate their yacht as a business, they can benefit from substantial tax advantages. The IRS rule is that equipment must be available for service in the year which the deductions are used.

Therefore, if you are eligible and want to take advantage of the tax deductions, we recommend swift action as yacht inventories will quickly sell out.

Hobie Alter, Creater of Hobie Cat, Dies at 80

Hobie Alter

Hobart Alter, sailing and surfing icon, died this weekend and left a legacy that brought thousands to watersports and sailing. This innovator and surfer had his start carving wooden surfboards in California in the 1950's. He later created surfboards out of polyurethane, an invention that revolutionized surfing. In the 60's he focussed on sailing and designed a lightweight sailboat inspired by the twin-hulled Polynesian catamaran. The cheaper, easier to launch and sailed by one person, the iconic Hobie Cat is credited with bringing high performance sailing to the masses. This 16 ft catamaran helped launched a love of sailing worldwide. He was inducted into the National Sailing Hall of Fame in 2011 for his contriburion to the sport. Hobie not only created water toys, he created a whole culture. He will be missed.
