Yacht Partnership 2013 and beyond
Over the past 11 years some of our yachts have been part of our yacht partnership scheme. Our partners use their yachts for up to six weeks per annum. In addition to usage the yacht generates income of around 6-7% of the capital invested. Typical depreciation over five seasons is around 20%.
The best testament to the quality of the scheme is that 80% of our partners who have been with us for five years are re-investing for a further five years.
With the forecast (Jan 2013) being for sterling to decline against the Euro and Dollar, an early placement of order for sterling buyers will have an advantage.
The Bavaria NEW models with wide bathing platforms, all are proving very popular.
Prices are inclusive of every thing required on the yacht from bedding, cutlery, dinghy, outboard, EPIRB, Life raft, etc. The list is extensive with the extras being a substantial addition to the base yacht cost. Wood decks are excluded as these are a costly extra, we do however feel their addition adds to the looks of the yacht, and will enhance the resale value.
All prices are shown in sterling based on an exchange rate of 1.20 Euro/£ all agreements will be made in Euros. Prices are subject to change without notice.

Hanse yachts are slightly different in style but are attracting a lot of interest.
Sail Ionian are a quality service provider. Our clients respect your yacht as your yacht will be maintained to the highest of standards, and won't be abused.
Our partnership yachts allow you to have the benefit of a fully maintained yacht, without any maintenance worries, you just turn up in Greece and enjoy the sailing.
Our scheme allows you to make a profit from your investment in a yacht, something rarely achieved in yacht ownership.
Sail Ionian We currently have around 30 yachts ranging form Bavaria 30's to a Hanse 495. Being family run we treat all yachts as our own, they are all maintained to the highest of standards. We pride ourselves on providing a quality service on highly specified yachts. Sail Grenadines our sister company in the Caribbean have a selection of yacht from a Bavaria 40 to a Beneteau 50.
We currently have not planned and do not intend any massive increase in our fleet but are content to provide a top quality service with well maintained and equipped yachts; we see this as a market niche. Much of our motivation for being involved with yachts is quality of life.
Over the past ten years we have worked with Bavaria yachts across the size range, we find them ideal for our sailing area we have had few maintenance or quality issues, our current plans are to continue with this brand, but with a gradual addition of Hanse and Fountain Pajot.
We offer the full range of yachts from any of our prefered manufacturers, but we are selective about the size and numbers of yachts that we will take each year.
We look to order our next season boats for Greece before September each year, this means they are produced over the winter, and ready for fitting out in March, before being sailed from Slovenia to Greece in April.
Our Caribbean yachts are ordered in the Spring to allow them to be in the Caribbean for the season start in November.
