Ancasta International Boat Sales in the UK has signed an agreement to promote Sweden-based Navigare Yachting’s charter management and yacht investment programmes in Britian.

Those looking to buy a new boat through Ancasta now have the opportunity to invest in a yacht with Navigare while benefiting from a guaranteed income, up to seven years cost-free, hassle-free yacht management, and the option of holidays sailing their own yacht or taking advantage of Navigare’s worldwide locations.

Customers can choose from a range of yachts, including Beneteau, Jeanneau, Lagoon, Hanse, Nautitech, Bavaria and Fountaine Pajot. They then select one of Navigare Yachting’s primary operating destinations, where their yacht will be based. These are the British Virgin Islands, Croatia, Greece and Thailand.

They can choose to purchase the boat outright and then lease it back to Navigare Yachting for charter, receiving up to 12% of their yacht purchase price per annum for seven years, guaranteed. Alternatively, two finance options are available, one with a lower initial investment and a stage payment towards the end of the term. The total investment with these finance options is around 55% of the original purchase price.

Owners typically benefit from four to six weeks turn-key boat usage per annum, according to season, using a flexible ‘points’ system, where spare ‘points’ can be used to enjoy the occasional weekend break.

Maintenance costs are covered as part of Navigare’s extensive servicing schedules. This helps residual values to stay strong; historically boats retain 55%-70% of the original purchase price. Insurance costs are also covered.

At the end of the term, a detailed phase-out schedule ensures that yachts are returned to their owners to an exacting standard.

Sara Östergaard, yacht sales manager of Navigare Yachting, says: “We are looking forward to support and work closely with Anacasta to promote and sell our yacht investment programs in the UK. We believe they are a strong and a professional partner and we are very excited to find out what we can accomplish together on the UK market."
