The Guaranteed Income Program is designed to be as worry free and simple as possible for the owner of a new yacht. It substantially reduces ownership costs for the first five years of new yacht ownership while providing 12 weeks per year of carefree owner usage. In addition, your yacht can also be considered a passive investment activity allowing some tax benefits to flow to the owner.
The Florida Yacht Group serves as your yacht's management company for this program to help take care of all the many logistics and hands-on details of providing your yacht ready to use to both yourself as owner and to your charter clients. For 5 years, you can count on:
The guaranteed monthly payment may be applied to offset loan interest and principal payments used to purchase the boat. If you choose to consider your yacht a passive investment, then you may be able to offset all tax on the monthly guaranteed payment. You also may be entitled to save on state income taxes, as well as, sales tax.
In this program, you are free to choose exactly the boat you want from our Guaranteed Income Yacht Offerings Portfolio, then keep it in the program at a FYG Charter Base (or an available partner base) for up to five years and, then, depart the program in an orderly manner and go sailing full-time OR place the yacht into another charter management program OR sell OR upgrade to a bigger boat.
