Meisler Yachts Ltd. is a company registered in The Bahamas, and recently we developed the "Luxury Yacht Part Ownership at Sea Program” for the international yacht market. Our goal is to provide yacht enthusiasts the opportunity to realize their dreams of being a yacht owner, within an economic framework that has never been offered before.
Meisler Yachts’ plan is to buy 35 x pre-owned yachts and upgrade them to the yacht industry's highest standard and make them available at a very reasonable price. We have found inspiration in the aviation industry’s modern business concepts with reduced fares. Read more about solutions and prices.
The first program is called “Yachting Dream Club” and will include 19 x 121 foot Broward motor yachts. 6 x 115-foot Benetti Classic These will be available in USA, Europe (8 yachts), Latin America (4 yachts), The Pacific Ocean (2 yachts) and Asia, Thailand (2 yachts), Hong Kong/China (1), Singapore (1) and (6) in Europe. Please contact us for sales presentations for each port.
The plan is to get the first yachts set in cruise for Parts Owners on 1. June, 2021. The entire program is to be implemented within 36 months.
All 35 yachts will be purchased by Meisler Yachts Ltd. and registered in the Bahamas Ship Register as 25 independent companies and will fly the Bahamas flag. Then they will be sold out to "Luxury Yacht Part Ownership at Sea Programs”. Meisler Yachts Ltd. will be the main part-owner in all 35 yachts.
The “Yachting Dream Club” will be followed by “Exclusive Yachting Club No 1” 10 Benetti Golden Bay -164 foot yachts) and “Platinum Yachting Club No 1” (5 new 301 foot Super Yachts).
Trends are changing
As times have changed so have trends and markets in both the luxury yachting and cruise industry. Before WW2, yacht ownership was a luxury only noble and royal families or the very richest people in the world could afford. In the 60s to the 80s more people had the economy to buy vacation properties and luxury yachts, owning these 100%. In the 1990s people with capital found out they did not have time anymore to spend their vacation on properties and yachts more than a few weeks per year. They wanted to distribute their private capital in several recreational activities that gave more desired activities for themselves and their family.
Then came ”Time Sharing" of apartments and large luxury properties including "castles". Also in the 1990s Net Jets started its operation. This was one of the first companies that purchased private jets and sold these to Part Ownership programs. Net Jets currently operates approximately 900 private jets in the US, Europe and the Middle East. There are also many similar programs for private jets operating by other firms. Looking at the developing of purchasing private jets that are 100 % private owned; this includes a very large private jet fleet.
After decades of high construction activity in shipyards around the world, thousands of luxury yachts have been left in marinas, especially in USA, Caribbean, Europe and many other places. These yachts are not being used more than 3-6 weeks a year by its owners.
We believe that now is the time to invest in a pre-owned yacht at very low cost, offering them to a Part Ownership Program were many people can achieve their goal of owning a large motor yacht for an investment of less than 10% of a pre-owned yacht today.
