You see a boat share for sale. You walk past, or click past with your mouse… then you go back again. Hang on a second. A yacht share means you can enjoy yachting in some of the world’s most beautiful, exotic and exciting locations but you don’t have to actually buy a yacht of your own? That sounds like an absolutely excellent idea.
If that’s you, you’re right. It is indeed an excellent idea, the perfect way for novices to learn about yachts and figure out whether they might eventually buy one of their own. It costs less than yacht ownership because the expenses are shared. You’re not leaving a costly piece of kit languishing in marina for most of the year because you’re too busy to use her. You and your fellow yacht share owners are getting good use out of her all year round. And a boat in regular use tends to remain in better condition than a boat that’s only used for a couple of weeks a year. There are many reasons behind choosing to boat share. But the best reason of all is the amazing places you’ll sail to, experience and enjoy. Here’s some inspiration for you.
Yacht share in the Seychelles
The Seychelles is a collection of 115 dazzlingly lovely islands in the Indian Ocean, a remote archipelago off the coast of East Africa. It offers a treasure trove of stunning beaches, coral reefs full of fascinating marine life, and exceptional nature reserves. This is home to the rare giant Aldabra tortoise. The mountainous rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park are simply extraordinary. Just 16 of the islands are populated, and the biggest three are Mahe Island, just 16km long by 6 km wide, Praslin Island, 10km long and 3.5km wide, and La Digue Island, 5km long and 3.3km wide. You’ll discover the joys of island-hopping, snorkelling and diving, golf, fishing, nature, cruises, and of course yachting on your splendid craft, which you own with a bunch of fellow seagoing fans.
Boat shares on the Adriatic sea
The Adriatic Sea is the most northerly part of the Med, stretching from the Strait of Otranto, which connects to the Ionian Sea, all the way to the magnificent Po Valley. Studded around the coast are a collection of fascinating places to experience: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece, Croatia, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia. The Adriatic sea itself is famously, wonderfully blue, as well as famously, wonderfully, balmy and warm, excellent for swimming, diving and water sports. The average summer temperature of the Adriatic is always between 22-26 degrees Celsius. Heavenly! The sea is home to more than 1300 islands, mostly along the Croatian coast. You have a total of 2,323 miles of coastline to explore, and the sea is fringed by incredibly beautiful sandy beaches.
Share a yacht based in the Maldives
The Maldives might not be here for much longer, steadily sinking as the sea levels rise thanks to climate change. So you might want to experience their magic while you still can. The Maldives is a nation in the Indian Ocean made up of 26 atolls and more than a thousand coral islands, mostly uninhabited. It’s famed for its glorious beaches, remarkable blue lagoons and huge reefs. Male, the capital, offers a world class fish market as well as great restaurants and shops plus the Hukuru Miskiy, also called the Friday Mosque, a confection made from sparkling white carved coral. Water sports are the name of the game here, including fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, and water-skiing.
Yacht share Dubai
Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates, perched on the south eastern coast of the Persian Gulf. This extraordinary modern city is famed for international luxury shopping, world-class modern architecture and lively nightlife, all dominated by the vast Burj Khalifa tower, just 170m short of 1000m high. The Dubai Fountain’s jets and lights are choreographed to music, and the bizarre artificial island, The Palm, offers a luxury setting complete with water parks and marine parks. As of 2018, Dubai is the fourth most popular city in the world to visit, according to the number of international visitors. This place is home to the stunning Safa park, Mushrif park, and Hamriya park. And there are also some marvellous beaches, including Umm Suqeim Beach, Al Mamzar Beach Park, JBR Open Beach, Kite Beach, Black Palace Beach and of course the infamous Royal Island Beach Club.
Fractional boat share New Zealand
No wonder New Zealand’s South Island is nicknamed ‘Middle Earth’ after Tolkien’s books. Sitting remote and alone in the south west Pacific, NZ is made up of two main islands, both featuring incredibly dramatic landscapes thanks to ancient volcanic activity and glaciation. There’s a lot to see and do, including the capital, Wellington, on the North Island, where you’ll find the brilliant Te Papa Tongarewa, the country’s national museum, Mount Victoria herself, the Haukuri Gulf, Waitomo Caves and Auckland’s spectacular west coast. The South Island boasts Fiordland and Southern Lakes, plus delights like heli skiing on Mount Cook, lovely hikes along the Milford Track, guided nature tours, scenic light aircraft flights and endless natural wonders.
