Spending valuable time with family and friends, travelling the world in luxury, cruising some of the world’s most remote regions whilst enjoying a six-star service, are just some of the perks to superyacht ownership.

The cost of buying and owning a superyacht is definitely not something to overlook by any means, but some will argue that the true value of a yacht should be measured in what it provides to the owner and their guests in terms of health, wellbeing and experience.

There are a range of motivations and objectives behind a person’s desire to become the owner of a luxury asset such as a superyacht. We look at some of the key benefits superyacht ownership has to offer … although these are just the tip of the iceberg!


Superyacht ownership provides you with a level of flexibility and control through which you can travel freely (almost) anywhere and at any time you want. There does not have to be a set itinerary or a limit to your stay – you can move around and drop anchor almost wherever and whenever you like.


The epitome of luxury travel, superyachts often come with the most incredible amenities. Naturally, the bigger the boat the bigger the amenities and with today’s superyacht designers, owners can have pretty much anything at their fingertips whether or not they are at sea.

From full-size swimming pools to cascading waterfalls, gardens, spas, beauty rooms, private cinemas, incredible water toys, submersibles and beach clubs – creativity is the only limit to the features you can find on today’s five-star floating hotels.


A superyacht can provide a sanctuary in which you and your guests can relax away from prying eyes, safe in the knowledge that you, your family and/or friends are in a private and confidential environment.

Dedicated Crew

Whether you are looking for a certain personality trait, someone that can speak a certain language, someone with childcare qualifications, as a superyacht owner you have a say on the crew employed to run and manage your yacht. As a home away from home, it is important that you and your guests feel comfortable and are catered for to the highest standards. When on-board, your dedicated team of crew remain at your disposal and will ensure the smooth, efficient and safe operation of your vessel at all times.


A superyacht is the perfect place for social gatherings, informal business meetings or simply spending time with family and friends.

Furthermore, if you are prepared to charter your vessel to third parties, it can provide the perfect venue for a high-end corporate event, music promotion, an intimate wedding or elaborate birthday party – the options are endless and you can charge for the luxury.

Family time

In today’s fast-paced world, you cannot put a value on spending quality time with your family. Be it with your parents, your children or your siblings, you can be sure to make fond memories that you can cherish for a lifetime.

Explore the Unexplored

As a superyacht owner, you are effectively ‘the captain of your own ship’.

With the freedom to go wherever you want – you can take charge of your next adventure. Superyachts can offer the ability to travel to some of the most remote locations where you can enjoy tranquil and secluded beaches, stunning bays with crystal-clear waters for snorkelling or to discover some of the most remote islands – the world is your oyster!

Health & Wellbeing

It is no secret that modern life is full of pressures and demands, making it all the more important to break away from our hectic daily routines and make time for self-care in order to avoid burnout.

Being on a superyacht, at sea in the fresh air, provides a plethora of health benefits including increased stamina, improved emotional state, alertness and cardiovascular health, and most importantly, it can reduce anxiety and stress.

Investment Opportunity

Some may not view yacht ownership as an ‘investment’ but more of an extravagant lifestyle expense. However, superyacht ownership does present a fantastic investment opportunity in more ways than one.

That said, it is vital that any aspiring owner seeks the appropriate professional advice before entering into any transaction of this kind, to ensure that they structure the transaction of the asset, its ownership and ongoing management and administration in the most effective way.
