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.
Sunreef 80 - World Cruiser
The Sunreef 80 is an all-around sailing leisure yacht equally ideal for exclusive getaways or for transoceanic adventures.
She boasts a combination of exterior and interior areas easily flowing into one another. A clever bridge deck and superstructure design allow for a superior level of comfort onboard whereas the generous teak use, high bulwarks and classy lines underscore her modern style with a classic edge.
With a completely fresh superstructure concept, the Sunreef 80 gains a vast, central lounging space in the saloon with a panoramic view and endless usage possibilities opening both onto the bow terrace and the cockpit.
The inboard areas are akin to those of a 120ft plus superyacht, and the external areas are even more impressive. Her foredeck exceeds the space found on some superyachts twice her length, however, it’s the breathtakingly expansive flybridge and the huge entertaining cockpit on the stern that sets this very beamy yacht apart from her larger monohull sisterships.
Her saloon is modelled on an open plan modern home offering a collective space but also different cosy corners dependant on where your mood takes you. Naturally, the cabins and all the differing external shady or sunny spaces offer a choice of options for total privacy as and when desired.
The bow benefits from a cozy lounge, well shielded from sun and wind. To the aft, the saloon merges with the generous cockpit extended with a large aft platform. All the areas combined form a universal, open environment where flexibility and freedom reign.
While housing the main helm, the 54m² flybridge is definitely dedicated to leisure with more than enough space for her movable furniture, a fully-equipped wet bar, a barbecue and large sunpads.
The hulls provide impressive volumes creating 4 airy, luxurious guest cabins and an opulent master suite with a walk-in dressing, desk, sofa, retractable TV and an immense bathroom. A perfect setting to unwind and relax after a long day in the sun.
Her 3 additional and equally superb double en-suite cabins, ensure that party sizes of up to 8 family or friends are all spaciously and stylishly accommodated.
Her 3 further crew cabins ensure that her 4 liveaboard crew are always able to comfortably feel at home while aboard. Her layout creates genuine space and privacy for co-owners and their crew alike.
The galley is neatly tucked down a few steps off the saloon, meaning the crew are not working in your family space, however, helping yourself to a snack is still very much in your domain.
Sunreef 80 - World Cruiser
This exclusive syndicate has a specialist purpose. To sail the world in a private superyacht environment, by covering one region at a time and adding the necessary real life time restraints into the mix.
In essence, the 4 co-owners choose a general cruising region each year, and then allocate their respective time on board her in anything from 2-week to 8-week visits on board. They then return to their real-world life while another co-owner continues on her passage making.
The somewhat unique aspect of this yacht is that she will follow the better weather across varying territories and thus offer year-round cruising capabilities. Every year the co-owners plan her forthcoming itinerary and schedule their suitable time slots on board well in advance, so they can plan around their sabbatical breaks on their ongoing round the world experience.
Over a 5-year period each co-owner will have enjoyed visits to the varying cruising grounds of the Mediterranean, USA & Caribbean, Pacific, as well as the many other global yachting hotspots around the globe.
The yacht itself is being purpose built with her nomadic global cruising plan in mind. A higher comfort design, as a consequence of lengthened time on board, is coupled with an extra equipment redundancy mindset factored in. She will therefore be know as the most capable Sunreef 80 built to date.
