Have you considered owning a charter yacht?

Link Copied to Clipboard

Have you ever wondered if it’s time to consider becoming a boat owner? Perhaps you’re a yacht charter regular, booking yach holidays for friends and family to enjoy once, or even several times, per year…and maxing out holiday time each year visiting your favourite destinations. Perhaps trying to see all 60 islands in the BVI? Or island-hopping amid sparkling waters of endless Greek islands?  Or maybe you have been longing for the ultimate retirement goal of sailing off to exotic islands aboard your own yacht. 

You may have heard some common misinformation about becoming a yacht owner – that it’s “impractical” or even nearly impossible. But before giving up on your dreams, consider that countless others just like you have made their “impossible” dream of living the yachting lifestyle a reality. Not only are they real examples of becoming yacht owners with a relatively modest investment, but they benefit from the use of other yachts in 40 top sailing destinations around the world for up to 12 weeks per year! With Dream Yacht, owning a yacht can be easier and more attainable than you ever thought possible. 

If you charter yachts for holiday annually, or multiple times per year, becoming a yacht owner can be the most cost-effective way to continue chartering year after year, while discovering the joys of a true sailing lifestyle and maximizing your opportunities to sail in many of the world’s most desirable destinations. At the same time you’ll be making an investment in the future – putting your dollars toward owning your yacht rather than charter rental.  

With our yacht management programs you can become a yacht owner without the expense and stress of a traditional yacht purchase. When you buy a yacht and place it in the Dream Yacht fleet, all of the charter marketing, logistics, and maintenance are done for you. And revenue from the charter income helps to offset a significant portion of the yacht’s loan payments. 

With most of our programs, you pay nothing for maintenance, insurance, and dockage, removing the potential hardship of unknown and escalating costs. 

Dream Yacht offers 7 yacht ownership programs, ensuring options to meet the needs of potential owners, whether you prefer the consistent monthly income and peace of mind that comes with our Dream Guarantee program, or the maximum returns on investment and potential tax benefits of our Dream Performance program. 

As the largest charter yacht operation in the world, our owners have access to 800 reciprocal use yachts in over 40 of the world’s most sought-after sailing grounds, and the assurance of a solidly backed company who’s ownership includes Beneteau Group, one of the world’s largest boat builders.

Why buy a boat and put it in a charter fleet?

Everyone has their own personal reasons for considering placing a yacht into a charter fleet,

whether it’s a life-long dream to cruise the world, or simply an attractive way to own a yacht with the benefit of charter income and tax advantages. 

Here are just a few of the reasons why yacht owners choose our charter management programs:


If you’re like many of the Dream Yacht owners that want to sail the world and discover new and exotic ports of call, then a charter program can be the perfect solution. With many programs, you have access to sister ships around the world in your choice of our 40+ idyllic destinations – more than anyone else! You’ll simply fly to your chosen destination, step aboard and see the world – without the daunting yacht preparations or long passages to get to your chosen cruising grounds.

With our Dream Guarantee program, you’ll receive a consistent monthly income from charter rentals, and enjoy up to 12 weeks of sailing each year. Invite your family and friends to join you on your sailing trips and feel the pride of ownership. Your holidays become shared experiences and memories that last a lifetime. In fact, some owners say that introducing others to the world of yacht charters is one of the more rewarding aspects of owning a yacht. 

At the end of your yacht ownership program, you’ll be a full owner – to either sail off into the sunset, or sell your yacht and potentially end up ‘cost neutral’, meaning you’ve sailed for five years free of charge.

If you envision a future of cruising full time aboard your yacht, but you’re not quite ready to make the commitment just yet, our programs can set you up for your longer term vision – owning a yacht and living the sailing lifestyle. 

Place your yacht in a program for 5 years and use the time to prepare for your ultimate voyage, whether that means saving and preparing financially, or getting more familiar with sailing your yacht and various cruising grounds around the world. By the end of your program when your yacht is phased out — following many weeks of experience in various destinations worldwide — you’ll be well-prepared to tackle challenging cruising grounds, and exciting longer passages if you choose!

For the duration of your program, you’ll also have the opportunity to use your owner charter weeks to try out a variety of yacht brands and models to broaden your sailing experience and start planning your next purchase.

The cruising lifestyle will be waiting for you at the end of your ownership program, when you can choose to sail the world or cruise closer to home. 


If you’re a business owner and want to consider the tax advantages of ownership, take a look at our Dream Performance program. With this program you can operate your boat as a business, have more choice over the boat’s configuration, and enjoy unlimited owner sailing time aboard your own boat. Whether you choose to maximize your earnings or your personal sailing time is entirely up to you!

Which type of Ownership program is right for you?

Our programs are divided into 2 basic types of yacht ownership: programs that pay charter revenue, and programs that reduce your initial cost to purchase the yacht. Which is right for you will depend on your personal circumstances and goals. 

  • Programs that pay charter revenue

Programs with charter revenue help to offset your loan expense, either with a guaranteed fixed monthly payment or as a fixed percentage of the revenues earned from the charter operation of your yacht. 

  • Programs that reduce your purchase cost

Owners that opt for a program offering a reduced initial buy-in for their yacht do not earn charter revenue, but still enjoy all of the benefits of fully covered yacht expenses and up to 12 weeks of reciprocal yacht use, with the option to take full ownership of the yacht at the end of the program.

Owning a yacht has never been so accessible

Intrigued? If you love to sail, join the over 650 Dream Yacht owners around the world and discover why 90% of our owners choose to continue with us and renew their charter management program at the end of their program. We are the world’s leading authority when it comes to yacht ownership.

With Dream Yacht, you can discover the benefit of more choice with over 60 yacht models from 7 of the most well-known and respected yacht brands including Lagoon, Bali, Fountaine Pajot, Excess, Beneteau, Jeanneau, and Dufour. 

Our team of experienced Yacht Sales Consultants can help you find the yacht and charter management program to best fit your needs, and guide you from start to finish through the process of becoming a Dream Yacht Owner.
