SmartYacht: Unlimited Yachting Pleasures around the World! THE SUCCESS MODEL SMARTYACHT EXPANDS ITS YACHTING OFFERS AND LOCATIONS

Since 2009, SmartYacht has developed innovative yachting models with considerable advantages as compared to traditional yacht ownership, and it has accordingly revolutionized the yacht market in a sustainable manner: Regardless of whether it´s Club Membership with Usage Rights, Co-Ownership or Sole Ownership – SmartYacht offers customized solutions for individual demands and needs. Your flexible usage and the availability of yachts around the world are always at the very heart of all SmartYacht concepts. Positioned in the most beautiful locations along the Mediterranean, the Indian Ocean, the Persian Gulf and the Caribbean, the existing motor yacht fleet is continuously expanded and offers the right object for every taste – ranging from the 15 m sport yacht for bareboat usage to the elegant 30 m yacht with crew aboard.

SMARTYACHT VACATION CLUB
In the framework of the SmartYacht Vacation Club, a right of usage for a specific yacht category (entry starting with 34,900 EUR) will be acquired for a period of three years. The member enjoys the right to flexibly spend up to six weeks annually (two weeks per season) aboard a certain yacht type with friends and family. Operating costs are to be paid only when the yacht is actually used. As a result, yachting will be a relaxing, pleasurable experience without obligation and at attractive conditions. The “Top 100 Yacht World Club” describes the most exclusive variation of the club and allows access to all of our yachts in all of our locations around the world. This most convenient package offers exclusive concierge service, berthing organization as well as route planning, and it enables members to participate in prestigious events around the world.

SMARTYACHT SHARED OWNERSHIP
If one is interested in owning a specific yacht, co-ownership is the ideal solution. The concept is simple: One invests a relatively small sum, but enjoys much more in using a larger yacht, indeed, coupled with all the advantages and the prestige of one´s very own yacht. At SmartYacht, each and every share owner can use his or her yacht individually and flexibly throughout the entire year. A three-season system guarantees thereby that all co-owners can enjoy the availability of their respective yacht in all seasons of the year. Reservations can be conveniently made by virtue of a simple click in our online reservations system. SmartYacht simultaneously manages the maintenance and cleaning of the vessel, organizes the berths in the respective harbors and arrange for all matters involving the insurance and the crew, and we offer a comprehensive service package to the co-owners ranging from the processing of all formalities regarding the purchase and the registration of the yacht to the stay aboard, during which each co-owner will enjoy his or her personally individualized furnishings as well as bed linen and towels with monogrammed initials. By releasing the yacht to other SmartYacht members, the revenues earned can help to sink the maintenance costs to a minimum. Moreover, all yacht shareholders are comprehensively insured amongst themselves, and everyone can individually decide whether to sell his or her respective share.

Nevertheless, SmartYacht goes even further, as Gerhard Chemelli, the CEO of SmartYacht, enthusiastically emphasizes: “We combine yachting pleasures aboard one´s yacht with yachting pleasures around the world, i.e., if a yacht share owner has a one-third share of a yacht on Mallorca, he or she can automatically use other yachts of that category in Croatia, along the Riviera or in the Caribbean. Professional yacht management coupled with a sensible combination of a maximum of four owners with differing usage interests per yacht guarantees the availability of the yacht during the desired times and maximize the pleasure of yachting.”

Dr. Harald Raetzsch (CH), SmartYacht Co-Owner: „My recreational time is of great value to me, and I want to enjoy it in a reasonable manner. SmartYacht offers the optimal package according to one´s individual needs. I now have my second yacht from Smart Yacht and will always come back for more.” For those opting for sole ownership, SmartYacht also has an innovative model for diverse, flexible yachting pleasures without stress: If a yacht is integrated into SmartYacht´s Club Program, the owner automatically enjoys access to all other yachts of the SmartYacht fleet around the world and can expand his or her yacht season accordingly to encompass the entire year and many different regions. Thereby, our sophisticated value-exchange system guarantees that everything runs smoothly and fairly. Additionally, SmartYacht assists owners during the purchase of a yacht, carries out the complete yacht management and actively works to ensure that revenues are regularly received from members of the SmartYacht Club. If desired, we will also be happy to seek appropriate members.

Those interested are invited to register at any time online, defining their own personal conditions and
demands and entering their data to reserve the desired model.
