Welcome back to our friendly suggestions on how to enjoy buying a yacht in a distant port! In our last post, we covered a luxurious charter yacht to the new location for the true yacht enthusiast, taking a plane for those in more of a hurry, and taking a little vacation in the region before the sale just for fun. Let’s finish up!
4) Send a Friend
Not everyone who buys a yacht has weeks or months free whenever the deal happens to close. If you’re busy most of the year and have just bought a yacht for your vacation time somewhere in the future, you don’t actually have to go pick up your yacht in person. Instead, you can send a friend or a hired representative to go get it for you. This allows you to continue doing whatever it is you do best and when your vacation finally comes around, there will be a beautiful new yacht waiting in your port for the occasion.
5) Hire a Local Pilot
The computers in yachts are getting incredibly smart but they can’t quite drive themselves from some distant port to your home port without a pilot. That said, if you want to skip the hassle of fetching your yacht entirely, you can always rely on the services of a professional pilot. Many yacht owners hire a staff to pilot and tend their boats, this is essentially the same deal only you won’t be on board for the first trip. By hiring a local pilot to bring the boat to you, the deal becomes incredibly convenient for any busy professional.
Buying a yacht for sale can be a complicated process, but it doesn’t have to be a hassle. Whether the perfect yacht for you is just down the coast or moored on another continent, there is always a way to get it home for the beginning of your next yacht adventure.
