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?

Bonne idée qui pourrait se combiner avec des achats de flotte pour les sociétés de location comme une alternative aux propositions actuelles avec achat 'subventionné'/investissement locatif

Le sujet est intéressant et la proposition d'une solution de location longue durée l'est tout-autant!

A ce jour nous ne proposons pas cette solution en tant que Chantier. Certains de nos concessionnaires le font, la société SAIL TAHITI par exemple (https://www.sailtahiti.com/location-bateau-longue-duree/). Plusieurs sociétés spécialisées dans la location, sociétés de charter, proposent aussi d'autres formules.
Mais il est vrai que cela n'est pas commercialisé directement par notre chantier et la marque Excess.

Le business model du nautisme évolue rapidement et nous constatons une croissance de "l'usage", en parallèle de la propriété. Cela est particulièrement pertinent pour les catamarans. Nous travaillons notamment avec la société SAIL TIME aux USA (https://sailtime.com/annapolis/fleet/) qui a récemment intégré un EXCESS 11 dans sa flotte en propriété partagée.

Nous continuons d'accompagner le développement de ces nouvelles formes d'usage notamment au travers de notre réseau de distribution qui commercialise nos bateaux.

The subject is interesting and so is the proposal of a long-term rental solution!

To date, we do not offer this solution as a Shipyard. Some of our dealers do, for example SAIL TAHITI (https://www.sailtahiti.com/location-bateau-longue-duree/). Several companies specialised in chartering, charter companies, also offer other formulas.
But it is true that this is not directly marketed by our yard and the Excess brand.

The nautical business model is evolving rapidly and we are seeing a growth in 'use', alongside ownership. This is particularly relevant for catamarans. We are working in particular with the company SAIL TIME in the USA (https://sailtime.com/annapolis/fleet/) which recently integrated an EXCESS 11 into its shared ownership fleet.

We continue to support the development of these new forms of use, particularly through our distribution network, which markets our boats

We offer long term charter solutions in the South Pacific with our catamarans based in Tahiti. It's a very exciting new venture and makes a lot of sense if you want to do a sabbatical cruise in Polynesia without the complication of buying and then reselling your boat. I'm happy to discuss in more details by mail, WhatsApp, or even better at the next boat show! David from www.sailtahiti.com
