New Yacht Purchase ProgramFive Easy Steps to Harmony Yacht Vacations
Charter Ownership Program
Step 1: Simply pick up the phone and give us a call! Our knowledgeable and friendly fleet specialists will be happy to help you get started on your new yachting lifestyle! We can give you a tour of our fleet base; introduce you to our management team and maybe even go out for a sail! We are also happy to meet you at upcoming boat shows, such as the Miami International and Strictly Sail show in mid-February.
Step 2: Together we identify the type of vessel you are interested in purchasing; the suitability for our fleet; and projections of income and expenses. We do not require that you purchase a particular boat from our inventory or “jack up” the purchase price. We never forget whose boat it is – yours!
We’ll even help you negotiate a fair purchase price with our marine industry partners offering new or pre-owned yachts for sale. We can also recommend the yachts most likely to be popular with our charter guests and suitable for our cruising area — for the maximum return on your investment. If you already own a boat, we will consider adding it to the fleet if it makes financial sense and is in excellent condition.
Step 3: If you will be financing the purchase; we can direct you to our marine finance and insurance experts; who are familiar with our program. Financing and insuring charter vessels is our specialty. We will also help prepare all documents for setting up your new charter vessel to be legally compliant with USCG and other government regulations; including travel to Cuba.
Step 4: Once your financing and insurance are approved, place the down payment on the boat of your dreams and schedule the closing. We will execute a Charter Partnership agreement that clearly specifies the terms of our management agreement. Your yacht will immediately appear on our website; print advertising and reservations system. You may choose how your yacht will be outfitted with your choice of equipment options.
Step 5: After the closing, take delivery of your new yacht and schedule your “maiden voyage” with family or friends. Our staff will be ready to assist with any commissioning, equipment or warranty matters as part of the “tweaking” process. Our base manager will complete a thorough owner-orientation of all systems; inventory all equipment and prepare a charter check-out /operations manual; specific to your vessel. After that, you can schedule your unlimited use of the yacht with our easy on-line reservations system.
