After the successful launches of Yacht Plus superyacht fractional ownership program in 2009, Floating Life Charter&Brokerage today announces the introduction of the most astute and financially sensible way of living the superyacht: a new fractional ownership program for M/Y Inspiration B a Custom Line 97.
Floating Life Charter&Brokerage provides this “third way” to experience the joys of owning a superyacht, by taking the hassle and costs out of yacht ownership and adding the service of Floating Life Owners; a powerful new equation in luxury yachting.
The concept of fractional ownership is becoming acknowledged as the logical and more astute way of owning high-end luxury products – be it yachts, property, planes, cars etc. This 2015 new fractional ownership offer is based on the relevant achievements that Floating Life had from the launches of Ocean Emerald (2009), Ocean Pearl (2010) and Ocean Sapphire (2011), the management and the chartering of the threes 41m superyacht Foster+Partner’s design.
Nothing compares to the sense of sovereignty from owning a private luxury yacht. But very soon the yacht will take control of owners’ life. Maintenance worries plague year-round. Costs easily spin out of control. Crew is hired full-time even when most owners only use their yachts for a few weeks per year. Yacht charter does not satisfy either.
One of the many benefits of fractional ownership is that it allows owners to enjoy a luxurious and prestigious lifestyle at a fraction of the cost of sole ownership while freeing up capital for other forms of asset allocation that would otherwise be invested as a sole owner.
Service – Enjoy Consistent Service. Inspiration B has a keen, reliable and fully trained crew, including Captain, first officer, chief stewardess, chef de cuisine, and hostess (the first three members are hired; the remaining crew is seasonal though we work to guarantee the same team of professionals). In addition, Floating Life Concierge provides for all necessary bookings on your behalf. For the first time, we bring professional hospitality to the yachting space, putting service central to our offering.
Costs – Compelling Financials. The financials are compelling. Crew and maintenance costs are shared between the owners. As an owner, you benefit from 10 weeks cruising each year in the Mediterranean (and the Caribbean as optional). Alternatively, you can charter out your unused weeks through Floating Life. As a result, you can enjoy affordable access to a genuine superyacht.
Charter – Owners in fractional may charter out selected weeks (or a portion of them), and receive a share of revenue if unable to use them. Floating Life provides a world-class yacht charter service that is unparalleled, matching the right clients with stylish and luxurious yacht to provide the best solution for all.
No Hassle – Floating Life takes the hassle out of yacht ownership by managing, maintaining, crewing and repositioning Inspiration B on behalf of her Owners, keeping her in top condition all the time, without you having to lift a finger.
Concierge – Floating Life Lifestyle management. As a part of its commitment to providing the ultimate in hospitality and service, Floating Life team offers a personalized service available to all owners seven days a week. The Floating Life Concierge will have the responsibility of taking care of all requests ranging from bookings, private transport to and from the yachts, cuisine and wine requirements to shore excursions, medical needs and hotel accommodation if required, thereby allowing owners the freedom to simply relax and enjoy the whole experience.
