“We don’t sell yachts but we do help people buy them”
Buying your dream yacht can be a daunting task. There are so many options, different yachts from a vast array of manufacturers and ship-yards often at vastly differing prices. The question is “which one is best for me?”. The choice gets more complicated in the over 60 foot size bracket, not only are the options huge but the price tag is such that you really don’t want to make the wrong decision.
At diYachting we have a huge amount of knowledge when it comes to sailing yachts over 60 ft so we are the perfect people to offer advice and assistance when you are ready to make your purchase.
Whether you are looking for a new or pre cruised yacht, want to invest in a charter management programme or join a fractional ownership plan we have a solution for you.
When it comes to buying a used yacht the market can be very confusing, as a buyer you are traditionally alone in the process, the brokers all work for the seller so you are at an immediate disadvantage, you versus a seasoned professional.
diYachting are proud to offer a Buyers Agent service, giving you your very own seasoned professional, to guide and assist you through the complex yacht purchase process ensuring you get your dream yacht at the right price.

“Use” [noun /yoos/ the act of using something, or a period of time when something is being used or can be used.]
Purchasers are looking to get more for their money, the days have gone where you would buy a yacht and leave it sitting in a marina for 48 weeks per year just waiting for your one or two holidays. Yachts need to be USED to maximise their value. Owners want returns on investment, reduced running costs, are looking at shared ownership or income from rental.
diYachting’s charter & shared ownership plans are specifically geared to luxury yachts over 60 ft that will be operated and chartered with a full time crew.
There are many schemes around for purchasing yachts into bareboat company’s ownership plans, they offer large returns and flexible use but are limited to smaller yachts that will be chartered without crew. The problem is you lose control of your asset, you don’t know how it’s being maintained or who’s skippering it. At the end of the contract you are given back a tired yacht that has been chartered for 200weeks plus with the depreciation that follows. You may as well have chartered!
Read on to discover how our buy to let & shared ownership solutions are better for you, kinder to your boat and protects your investment.
Not only will diYachting be there throughout your purchase and then stay with you to ease the running of the yacht with our management services but now in association with our brokerage partner Grabau International (London), we are able to offer a superb solution to owners as they come to the end of their time with their yacht and want to sell.
For the first time we have it all covered for you from purchase to sale and everything inbetween. Contact Matt for more information on how to list your boat with GI and at the same time increase her visibility through diYachting.
