How it Works

Self-drive shared ownership

How It Works

YachtQuarters works through bringing a group of owners together in a combined ownership structure. Each yacht ownership structure stays in force for four years, after which time, the yacht will be sold and the ownership structure dissolved.

At the end of the four-year period, owners have the option either to dissolve the ownership structure and receive the proceeds of the sale in accordance with their shareholding, or continue with a new yacht.


A share in the programme entitles each owner to 33 days on board every year

Flexible options are available – purchase extra shares to enjoy more time on board. 


In addition to paying your share of the yacht, each owner pays a contribution towards the operating costs as well

The traditional expenses of owning a yacht; the servicing, on-going maintenance, technical issues, repairs and storage, will be fully managed to a realistic budget.

Outgoings are shared between yourself and the other owners, and all operating costs are transparent and predictable.

Our professional approach makes complicated and critical decisions easy, and knowing there are no hidden charges, you will be as in control of your investment as you are of your horizons.


Throughout the lifetime of the programme, your yacht – your investment – will be cared for and safeguarded by the best in the business. Our aftercare provision for your yacht is world class. The upkeep and technical operation of the craft is undertaken by a team that has the global resources, industry contacts and the technical expertise to maintain your yacht impeccably.


The yachts specified within this shared ownership programme can be self-skippered, so if you can’t wait to get behind the helm of your own yacht then this is your chance. However, if you’d feel more relaxed with a trained skipper on board, this can be arranged for you at an additional cost.
