Not All Yacht Tax Programs are Created Equal

Considering Placing your Yacht into a Tax Program? STOP! Read this First!

The Catamaran Guru is a brand-independent yacht brokerage working with various charter management companies and yacht brands to bring our boat-buying clients the programs and boat models that are best for their situation and goals. Catamaran Guru is no longer affiliated with Dream Yacht (DYC).

Operating your yacht as a small business in a charter program can generate substantial tax advantages. We know, because we operated our own Lagoon 450S and now our Bali 5.4 as businesses in the tax-advantaged yacht ownership program.

And we can tell you that OUR yacht ownership programs DO work! But don’t just take our word for it. We hope you watch the video below to hear it straight from real owners in this program with a lot of prior yacht ownership experience. Note that most of the information on this page is about Dream Yacht…and they have amazing programs. But note that Catamaran Guru is an independent broker that works for you and no one else and gives you the knowledge about and choice of the best yacht ownership programs in the industry.

We wanted to take it to the next level for ourselves and our clients.

THE SOLUTION: In order to NEGATE the stress of unpredictable revenues, we teamed up with Dream Yacht to create the CADILLAC of TAX PROGRAMS! Dream Yacht is the largest charter operator in the world. With their yacht charter booking horsepower and infrastructure, they are in a position to underwrite revenues at a level that ensures zero financial risk. Add to that the advantage of tax benefits and worldwide reciprocal sailing and you have a win-win-win deal.

This next generation yacht ownership program with tax advantages and a revenue safety net is one of a kind and exclusively available on the Dream Yacht platform.

Stephen of Catamaran Guru walks you through every step of the process from choosing your yacht, arranging a marine mortgage, creation of the corporation, insurance, documentation and flagging and more. You will not find this type of innovation, flexibility, and low-risk profile in a boat ownership program from a dealer or any other charter company.
