SmartYacht will be attending this year’s Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show, held November 3, 4, & 5, 2016 at Dubai Creek Marina. We are looking forward to giving further information about yacht co-ownership to those interested in living the Dubai lifestyle to the fullest.

Established in 2010, the Dubai Pre-Owned Boat Show is a unique event, offering everything a prospective boat owner could ever possibly need, and one that is one of its kind in the region. Marine enthusiasts will enjoy being introduced to a range of retail offerings as well as finance deals and boat insurance, truly making it a “one stop shop” for everything a future yacht owner could want and need.

Ultimately, the goal of this show is to make sailing more accessible to everyone, which is a purpose that SmartYacht’s yacht co-ownership options embody. From basic vessels to exclusive options, boats ranging in price from AED 30,000 up to AED 25 million will be on display.

The Caviar Spoon’s Testimonial on the Upsides of Yacht Co-ownership

BY: admin / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Fractional Yacht Ownership Blog, Yacht Co-Ownership

Here are excerpts from a great testimonial/review, written by The Caviar Spoon, on the upsides of yacht co-ownership offered by SmartYacht:


“Chirag Shah, SmartYacht’s Middle East Managing Director, walked me through the hows and whys of yacht co-ownership and…I get it now. Don’t be too quick to judge based on price (like I did). When I first saw that the starter package is priced at 133,000 AED, I definitely suffered from sticker shock! But then I considered how it’s tax-free here and it wouldn’t be out of the question to split it with another couple. Or perhaps you’re a corporate honcho who is constantly entertaining. The initial investment is a drop in the ocean when you consider how your drop-out rate would decrease significantly if people knew they’d be aboard a luxury yacht instead of stuck inside yet another boring hotel room!

Now, I myself am not a boat owner (I wish!). BUT, most of the people I know who have had boats in the past confess that they never used them as frequently as they would have liked. It’s rather like having a holiday home. You only stay in it for a small portion of the year but you’re still stuck with paying the year-round costs of running and cleaning the place. That’s the beauty of fractional yacht ownership—you get the luxury of having a yacht but without the full costs that come with owning one full-time.

Think about it, the list of things you can do is endless! Day trips roaming around to all of the wonderful nooks and crannies of the UAE, sailing brunches (skip the standard hotel brunch and get out on the water!), to, oh, let’s say a #TanAndTatt outing! (What’s that, you ask? Tanning and Taittinger champers, of course!) Really, you could have so much fun with a boat.”

The full content of the testimonial can be found here. The page also contains a detailed account of the author’s great boating and dining experience aboard one of our vessels.

Reasons to Take Advantage of Fractional Yacht Ownership in Dubai

BY: admin / 0 COMMENTS / CATEGORIES: Fractional Yacht Ownership Blog, Yacht Co-Ownership

There is nothing like spending time relaxing and socializing on board a luxury yacht. However, there is also nothing like sailing on a lavish vessel here in Dubai. Fractional yacht ownership is extremely popular in this area of the world for several reasons, and we want to introduce you to some of the most pertinent.

First, Dubai boasts beautiful sunny weather throughout the majority of the year. With fractional yacht ownership programs in other areas of the world, you may only be able to spend time on the water in the spring and summer. However, here in Dubai, yachting is something you can do year-round.

Second, Dubai is home to some of the finest restaurants and clubs in the entire world. For example, you might have already spent many nights at the Waldorf Astoria on the Palm, the 360 nightclub in Jumeirah, or 101 at the One & Only on The Palm. Through our signature fractional yacht ownership program, you can arrive at just about any location in style on a luxury yacht.

Finally, Dubai boasts some of the most beautiful tropical landscapes and attractions in the world. When you own a portion of your own yacht through our fractional yacht ownership program, you can easily spend your evenings and weekends snorkeling, jet skiing, fishing, or diving into the sparkling waters of the Persian Gulf.

Dubai has an electric atmosphere that you do not want to miss out on. If you are ready to truly immerse yourself in everything this luxurious area of the world has to offer, there are many reasons why you should own a portion of your very own luxury vessel through our yacht co-ownership program.

  • Cost –With yacht co-ownership, the cost of owning your own lavish vessel is no longer out of reach. Compared with buying a similar yacht for around 3M AED, our co-ownership options start at less than 150,000 AED.
  • Convenience—Maintaining and mooring your own yacht can almost make the convenience of owning your own yacht too much of a hassle. However, with yacht co-ownership, none of the problems associated with owning a yacht are placed on your shoulders. Rather, you simply get to enjoy cruising around the Persian Gulf aboard your yacht whenever your schedule allows.
  • Enjoyment—Imagine leaving the office in the evening just in time to enjoy sipping cocktails aboard your own yacht at dusk or spending your weekends sailing out to Half Moon Island to rub shoulders with Dubai’s most elite. With our yacht co-ownership program, this type of luxury is always available to you.

Stop spending so much time on land and explore the many benefits yacht co-ownership has to offer. Book your appointment today to discuss your options and to find out more about the cost, convenience, and enjoyment of owning a portion of your own yacht.
