Dream Yacht Sales Performance Program Explained

In contrast to the carefree security of our Guaranteed Income Program, Dream Yacht Charter also offers a more flexible “Performance Program”. With this option, owners have complete freedom to choose their yacht model, floorplan layout, onboard equipment and base location. The owner and Dream Yacht Charter work together in the marketing and operation of the yacht with the owner receiving 65% of the charter revenue. Operating costs such as; insurance, dockage and maintenance are paid from the owners share of revenue. Many sailors find this to be an ideal arrangement, particularly those who aren’t able use a privately owned boat enough to justify the cost. Some yachts can cover an entire year of operating expenses with just 14-18  weeks of charter revenue annually. Leaving the rest of the year for either owner use time or additional charter activity which can generate positive equity.

May Qualify for US Tax Incentives

Performance Program owners may also qualify to further reduce the cost of yacht ownership through legal US tax incentives. It starts with a properly structured business plan with the new yacht as the primary capital asset necessary to operate a charter business and can be depreciated to suit the business owner’s goals.  Recent changes to the tax code now allow deductions of up to $1,000,000.

What our owners say

“My research showed a significant number of charter management companies operating in the Carribean. It also revealed that the majority of these companies were either limited in the number of regions that they served, the choice of boat manufacturer and type, and/or the number of ownership programs available to boat owners. Discussions with other individuals that had previously chartered with each of the 3 finalist charter management companies convinced my spouse and I that DYC was the most fitting choice to manage our new boat and personal charters.”
