2019 has been a fantastic year for us here at Dream Yacht Sales, with lots of exciting new additions to our fleet, record sales, welcoming many new owners to the DYC alumni and introducing even more specialist charter management programmes to make our customer’s dream of owning their own yacht a reality. Take a look at our year in review here…
New management programmes
We’ve introduced even more charter management programmes during 2019, meaning it’s now even easier for you to own the yacht of your dreams on a programme that suits your personal circumstances. Our full list of charter management programmes now include:
Our new Dream Buyback programme was conceived to offer our customers maximum financial advantage for their yearly charter holidays. It’s simple – you make a deposit of only 40% on the yacht of your choice from a wide selection of eligible models and locations. Sail up to eight weeks per year, for five years, on your boat or an equivalent boat in 60+ worldwide destinations, including usage in the UK from our base in Port Hamble Marina and at the end of the term, you can either keep your yacht or we will buy it back off you for 20% of the original value.
As with all of our other charter management programmes, you’ll get:
- Marina berth at zero cost for duration of contract.
- Zero Operating Expenses (insurance, berthing, maintenance)
- Privileged access on all Dream Yacht Bases
- Full Owners services
If you would like to discuss any of the above programmes, contact our specialist team today on 02380 455527.
Expansion of our fleet
2019 saw the arrival of over 220 new yachts to the Dream Yacht Charter fleet, located across our 60+ destinations around the globe, the majority of which are available for customers to own under one of our charter management programmes. The new fleet includes catamarans from Aquila, Bali, Nautitech and Fountaine Pajot, in addition to the latest model sailboats including Bali 5.4 and 4.5, Dufour 390GL and 430GL, Lagoon 46, Nautitech 46, Astrea 42 and Oceanis 51.1.
We are looking forward to welcoming even more during 2020. Contact our sales team today to find out how you can own one of our new yachts.
In addition to investing in our fleet, we’ve also listened to our customers about where in the world they want to sail. As a result, we are delighted to have expanded our destination portfolio in 2019, opening five new bases across the globe. The new bases include:
- BR Marina Paraty in Brazil
- San Blas Islands in Panama
- Plattsbugh City Marina in Lake Champlain, New York
- Christie’s Landing Marina in Newport, Rhode Island
- Marina Minimes in La Rochelle.
Our portfolio of owner destinations now stands at 60+, which can be enjoyed either when you buy a yacht in that location or under our management programmes’ reciprocal use scheme. We cannot wait to see what new destinations will be introduced in 2020.
Meeting customers around the world
2019 saw us attend a number of boat shows, where current and prospective customer came to see us to find out about our range of charter management programmes.
In April, we travelled to La Grande Motte for the 10th International Multihull Show where we were joined by a range of colleagues from around the globe. While there, we were able to show customers exactly what some of the yachts available under our charter management programmes were like, with 17 of the 60 yachts on exhibit being available in the DYC fleet.
In September, we headed back to the south coast of the UK for the Southampton Boat Show, where we proudly showcased our new Dufour 430 GL, Rever, which is available under ownership from some of our 60+ bases worldwide. The show was a huge success, where the team were able to meet customers old and new to discuss their future plans and requirements.
Finally, in October, a couple of team members made the eight hour journey up to Kip Marina in Inverclyde for our first ever Scotland’s Boat Show. While the weather was not on our side, we were able to introduce the brand to the Scottish yacht market and had the absolute pleasure of meeting residents from all over Scotland. We look forward to returning in 2020 where the event will host the first ever ‘Festival of Light’.
Our 6th annual owners event
A big THANK YOU to all of our yacht owners for their participation in the 6th annual Dream Yacht Charter owners event held in Naples in November! Being a DYC yacht owner isn’t just about owning your own yacht, it makes you part of a community of passionate people with access to exclusive events.
We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and look forward to seeing everyone again in 2020.
