Fractional Yacht Ownership in the Western Med
The Western Mediterranean is famed for its glamorous ports where the nightlife often surpasses the rock-star styled fun filled days at anchor.
This region is very much about active lifestyle yachting, where coming back into port at night to enjoy some land based gastronomic delights and a cool vibe in the bars and clubs, is very much the norm for yacht owners.
Fractional yacht owners in the western Med tend to use their yachts more as a floating holiday home than a passage-maker. Fractional ownership therefore works particularly well in these waters as berthing costs tend to be among the highest in the world, and an idle yacht can become restrictively expensive. Through shared ownership, the mooring is in constant use, balancing-out the value proposition.
Yachts in these waters tend to fall into two primary categories:
• Sleek flybridge yachts designed to offer high occupancy levels of accommodation coupled with ample living space. Sub 60ft yachts often boasting 3 spacious cabins, and over 60ft yachts offering 4 cabins or more. These make ideal holiday-home type fractional yachts, as they are perfectly configured to blend the mix of style and comfort desired.
• Rapid and purposeful looking open yachts to offer extensive outdoor entertaining areas, very much with day boating in mind. These yachts are ideally suited to fractional ownership when combined with a land based holiday home and often bought by villa owners who would like some time at sea but wish to avoid the costs and hassle of outright yacht ownership.

Cranchi Fifty 8 Fly Syndicate Information
New for 2019, this ‘as new’ yacht has been co-owned since 2013 by two friends who rarely used her because she was located in Cyprus. They have now decided to relocate her to Marbella and invite two more quarter shareholders to join the syndicate and enjoy 12 weeks use per year.
Built in 2011 but not commissioned until 2013 this yacht has really only been used as a day boat, which explains the low hours and excellent condition. Fitted with the fantastic Volvo IPS Pod drives, she offers easy manoeuvrability in the marina and fast, efficient performance at sea. The extensive and bespoke specification includes an upgraded generator, air conditioning, flybridge bimini, wine cooler, low level LED lights, BBQ to name but a few. The well sized bathing platform is hydraulically controlled for easy launch of her tender. She offers sumptuous accommodation for 6 guests in three well appointed cabins. Her full beam master cabin is aft with port side seating and table, full size wardrobe & private en-suite facilities. Her forward VIP guest cabin has a double berth & private access to the en-suite/day head. Port guest with twin berths. She also boasts a comprehensive galley complete with combination microwave and oven and dishwasher. Large split saloon sofa with rise & fall TV with a upper dinette area. The unrivalled space in the cockpit offers enough space for freestanding chairs around the cockpit table, perfect for alfresco dining or evening drinks. The bright interior is beautifully finished in leather upholstery and wooden flooring throughout.This is an ideal proposition for anyone who is looking for relatively frequent visits to the Balearics on what can only be described as an exceptional value boating proposition!
