It’ll be funny, I’m sure, because to buy a yacht it’s not a stressing fact, as a lot of the published brokers claim, to sell one is even better. I’ll show all the view points, the boat owner’s, the buyer’s, the broker’s, the builder’s, the surveyor’s eventually. No advice from me, only suggestions some times, just because the instinct of the person you are, will prevail all. Few categories of people will buy or build a yacht. Most of them are sea lovers, others are just investors. Some of them want to make the yacht their future home, which will be maybe not the last one they’ll buy, and certainly their experience will improve considerably with the time passing, buying the next, and the next after that.
There are the movie stars, or the business tycoons who need to express themselves better by buying a yacht, or have to close deals relaxed, by the way, I can’t think a better place then a boat, a luxury boat for such activities, especially money-getting ones, unless there is some sea sickness involved.
The best way to know what boat will keep you happy and satisfied, is to live aboard one for a while and discover what works best for you. “Awhile” means even a few days, sometimes, if in a hurry, for just a day. Many people never debate the merits of sail versus power. Powerboat people simply look at powerboats and sailors look at sailboats. Perhaps they should ponder a little. It rarely occurs to a sailor that he might be happier with a powerboat for a home. My area of expertise is not extended to racing. I’m not going to throw opinions on America’s Cup Class boat positions or the crew members’ assisting areas, or when will the sails be let out a little at a point of “close reach”, after “away bearing” from the wind in a certain spot of Bay of Biscay. You’ll find here some term explanations too, tips, tricks, sea regulations, definitions, suggestions for deck gear, navigation equipment, electronics, basic tools, safety equipment, galley, engine and more, matching the needs of live aboard people, leisure or business. Brokers claim that buying a yacht is resembling buying a car. Is it? You’ll see that on your own.
