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.

Sunseeker Manhattan 60 Syndicate Information
This is a friendly and diverse group of people some of whom have enjoyed sharing their yachts for the past decade in a number of previous vessels.
They have owned this yacht since July 2014, and are very satisfied the way the syndicate & vessel works for them, however one of their owners has decided to sell his 8 weeks per annum 1/6th share, as he has purchased a share in a larger yacht.This syndicate chose the Manhattan 60 as it provides both pace and space in a craft that family and friends can operate comfortably on their own. The 3 cabins are all roomy enough to feel really sumptuous. Each cabin has its own en-suite and the 3rd (twin) cabin isn’t the usual small bunk compact version found on so many other 60ft 3 cabin 3 heads boats. If taking a captain or crew to make life easier, it also boasts a neat aft cabin with full facilities for two. Alternatively this space can be used as a private cabin to enhance guest sleeping accommodation if some guests don’t want to share.The annual maintenance contribution per share is circa £20k p.a. to cover mooring fees in on the best quay in Puerto Portals, weekly change-over cleaning and laundry costs and other general maintenance. (For a half share of 4 weeks, that would of course only be about £10k)This syndicate have become familiar and comfortable in handling the extra complexities that co-ownership brings, and are all truly pleased by how well it works for them. They have all learned that this is a very cost effective way of enjoying their yachting, without the heavy financial burden or the time consuming management issues normally associated with outright yacht ownership.They believe that a syndicate-owned yacht must have an extensive and well thought out shore support system, to enable all owners to receive the high standard of seamless service they expect. By appointing a Boat Manager in Mallorca they have created just such a support system, with many features that have now become well proven over their many years of co-ownership. They utilise the Fractional Association’s owners’ tools such as their weekly section process and their owners’ website communication and accounting tools.See www.fractionalassociation.com
