The Truth About Yacht Charter Investment. At Island Yachts we have always believed that the key to our success has been our frankness with our customers. We know that with candor comes integrity and while this philosophy may not help us sell as many boats as "the other guys", our customers will ultimately make their buying decisions based on reality rather than false promises.
The fact is that buying a yacht and placing it in charter service for four or five years is not an investment. The average 15 year boat mortgage will far outlive the yachts charter service career, and in many instances, the used market is saturated with ex-charter vessels from various fleets, what we call "disposable" boats that can't be sold for the owners mortgage. Consequently, in many cases the owner must put the boat in a secondary charter fleet to continue to make mortgage payments, or be forced to sell the boat at an upside-down closing. That's why Island Yachts has chosen Island Packet Yachts for our management program. Meticulously manufactured, Island Packets hold up incredibly well in bareboat service, and their uniqueness in the charter industry increases their popularity among potential charter guests who are looking for an alternative to the same yachts offered by most charter companies.
