Community Contribution - Why not offer a long term charter option for new boats coming out of the yard?
Lead times are too long (and expensive) to order a new boat (especially since the abolition of the VAT advantage with a leasing/LOA scheme) and finding a second hand boat is a headache (with inevitable risks associated with the age and condition of a boat).... not to mention the uncertainty of any resale.
So why not offer a long-term charter formula for new boats coming out of the yard?
