The little "home" on the big ship
Set up a "home" at sea: talk about buying a boat
The price of the yacht ranges from hundreds of thousands to tens of millions, and the dinghy is between 200 and 2 million yuan; the price of mainstream leisure yachts is mostly 1 to 4 million yuan, and the length of the boat is generally 28 feet to 45 feet The price of a commercial yacht with a length of more than 45 feet is more than 5 million yuan; a luxury yacht with a length of more than 80 feet can reach tens of millions of yuan or even hundreds of millions. The larger the yacht, the more luxurious the interior decoration, and the more expensive the price. Generally speaking, yachts produced in Taiwan, China are 2/3 of the price of yachts produced in the United States, half of Italy. British yacht prices are even higher.
There are two types of yacht purchases: "Buy Now" and "Yacht Order". Buying imported yachts is more complicated than domestic yachts.
The steps to purchase a current boat are: 1. Determine the brand and model of the yacht you want to buy; 2. Determine the delivery date and delivery port or delivery address; 3. Sign a purchase contract with the dealer; 4. Pay the payment; 5. Yacht After arriving at the place of delivery, both parties go through the inspection and handover procedures.
The steps for ordering a yacht are slightly different : 1. Determine the brand, model and required accessory brand of the yacht to be purchased; 2. Sign a purchase contract with the dealer; 3. Confirm the delivery date and delivery port after confirmation by the shipyard; 4 Pay the deposit; 5. The dealer places the order to the shipyard and pays the deposit to the shipyard, and the shipyard begins to manufacture; 6. The yacht pays the full amount before it is built and shipped (some of them pay another 50% and retain the remaining 20%); 7. The yacht arrives In Hong Kong, go through customs clearance procedures and domestic transportation; 8. Both parties go through inspection and handover procedures.
It takes at least 2 to 3 months from signing to delivery. During this waiting period, the agent will start to apply for the ship's position, license and insurance; you will need to start the basic course of study or examination.
Buying a boat is actually like buying a car. The price of a yacht is not just as simple as the cost of a single boat. The expenses involved in buying a boat include the standard configuration of the yacht, optional equipment, packaging fees, transportation costs, insurance fees, customs duties, and VAT. , Miscellaneous services, etc. In addition, after the purchase, there will be yacht maintenance fees, repair fees, license fees, channel usage fees, berth rental fees and other fees.
The payment process can be divided into three stages. When signing the contract, 30% of the total price is used as the signing fee. When the agent shows you the proof of shipment (at this time, your ship has been packaged and ready to be shipped to the Chinese port), then you Need to pay 50% of the total price (at this time the agent has paid the full ship price). At the time of delivery, you have confirmed that the ship type, specifications, and equipment meet the order. The procedures for launching the sea trial and transfer registration are complete, and you need to pay the remaining 20%.
You can also choose a loan to buy a boat, and the dealer will help you handle this business at the bank.
In order to avoid the regret after the silver flower goes out, it is most important to find out what your needs are. In addition to making a mental budget, choosing a yacht must suit your own preferences. First of all, you must find out the most frequently used items: family travel? Sea fishing? Marine business club? diving? In most cases, how many people go to sea together ... These are very important, not only how many feet of boat to buy, but also different types of boats (sea fishing has special sea fishing boats, but also special family yachts and sailing boats ), Although most yachts now take care of all the functions, they are still biased. If you choose improperly, you will inevitably regret when you play the boat.
seeing is believing
When buying a boat, you should try to see the spot of the actual ship. If there is no new ship, you should also look at the ship that has been sold and communicate with other shipowners who have purchased the boat. In fact, it is very important to watch a few more boats before starting. After all, this water toy is not as much in contact as a car. It has been seen a lot, and I have a deep understanding of the quality, design and configuration of the yacht. In addition, it is also necessary to confirm whether the seller can provide complete after-sale protection services. The main technical documents of the yacht-hull layout drawing, equipment list and operation guide must also be read clearly. In particular, it should be noted that the main and auxiliary engines of the yacht also have separate system files.
How to "bring" a yacht
Smashing money is a very happy thing and the easiest thing. "Raising" a yacht is the most energy-intensive task. The yacht also needs to be listed, verified, and abide by traffic regulations at sea.
After purchasing a boat, go to the Maritime Safety Administration for ownership registration and nationality registration, including purchase invoices, factory certificates, legal identity certificates, ship technical information and photos, etc., and give the yacht a good name and apply for the registration of “ship ownership certificate”. Then you should apply for inspection to the ship inspection department, obtain a ship inspection certificate, and then obtain a "ship nationality certificate" from the Maritime Safety Administration. In this way, your yacht has the "right to sail".
Obtain a driver's license: If you want to enjoy the pleasure of sailing aboard a boat, you must obtain a yacht driver's license. As with a private jet driver's license, it is quite difficult to obtain a yacht driver's license.
Looking at the charts is a basic skill. You must master the sea lanes, anchorages, traffic-intensive areas and marine breeding areas. You should avoid these areas as much as possible when driving the yacht. It is necessary to cross the channel as straight as possible; if your yacht approves the "voyage The "area" is large enough to allow outgoing voyages, follow the general direction of the ship and travel on the outer edge of the channel, and do not affect the navigation of large ships; the same is true when entering the port.
The boat control is very different from the vehicle control, especially under the action of surge, waves and wind, so the control technology is also critical. Finally, we must learn to identify the navigation aids at sea and the number of lights (night) on the ship (daytime). All kinds of ships, such as maritime navigation, berthing, construction, fishing, and faults, are showing different kinds of lights and types. Only if you have mastered these "signs" can you avoid and take various safety in a reasonable and reasonable manner. Measures.
Sailing: To obtain a yacht driving license, you must go to a qualified yacht club. The examination and certification agency is the maritime department. According to regulations, ships entering, leaving or navigating and operating in the port should apply for visas from the port supervision or the visa station they set up. At the same time, the yacht must also have a “ship safety inspection record book”.
Mooring: The yachts cannot be parked at will. They are generally moored in the yacht harbor. The yacht dock is lined with floating docks supported by rows of pontoons. On both sides of the floating dock, there are cement reinforced piles deep into the seabed to fix the tide. None will affect the safety of the yacht. Water, electricity and oil pipelines are laid next to each berth.
According to the size of the boat, the cost of the berth is also rising. Take the minimum 6-meter berth (19.7 feet) as an example. If you rent a berth, the daily rent is about 300 yuan, the monthly rent is about 7,000 yuan, and the annual rent is nearly 80,000 yuan. For 20 years, the long-term berth sales price will reach nearly one million yuan.Yacht management
After purchasing a yacht, the next step involves the management of the yacht. The contents of the yacht management are complicated and not easy. Throughout the world, the management of yachts can be summarized in the following ways:
First, it is directly handed over to the yacht sales company at the time of purchase. Many ship owners choose this method because the yacht sales company has professional maintenance personnel, so that the maintenance and repair of the yacht can be more convenient and worry-free. But this way will inevitably produce a phenomenon-moral hazard and adverse selection.
Second, the yacht owner manages it himself. Many yacht owners believe that the management of yachts is simple, and hiring a captain and several sailors can cope with it. As everyone knows, yacht management requires professional captains and sailors to maintain cleanliness, otherwise there will inevitably be a lot of problems due to small losses.
Third, leave it to the yacht club for management. In foreign countries, most yachts are managed by clubs. In line with the development of the Chinese yacht industry, yacht clubs have sprung up, and most of them can also provide yacht management services. However, judging from the current status of domestic yacht clubs, management is not their strength, but more inclined to focus on berth leasing, membership development, yacht leasing and sales, and even the development and sales of yacht-related real estate. Lose one another.
Fourth, hand over to a professional yacht management company. At present, there are some yacht management companies in China, specializing in providing transportation, certification, cleaning, maintenance, and maintenance services for customers. Because of their professionalism, they are at ease.
Global boat show purchase guide
Almost all foreign boat shows, in addition to yacht displays, will incorporate many entertainment items and other related activities in addition to product sales to attract more tourists. For example, a costume show was held on the main stage at the London Yacht Show early this year; the Palm Beach Yacht Show in the United States has music festivals and free fishing training services every year; and the Asian Yacht Show in Singapore in 2007 (Boat Asian) There is even an entertainment project such as a beauty contest. These interesting additional activities are also not to be missed by visitors. Generally speaking, spectators participating in foreign yacht shows are allowed to board the boat, and business representatives are also obliged to answer customer questions about the yacht itself and purchases at any time.
A notable problem is that it is best to wear a pair of deck shoes or at least soft-soled shoes to visit, so that it is convenient for the merchant to agree to wear your shoes to visit the interior. Of course, some businesses will require visitors to take off their shoes before they can go on board, especially those super yacht manufacturers. For example, if you go to the Cannes Yacht Show in France, where super yachts are gathered, and you want to board a few more large boats, it is best to pay special attention to wearing. Otherwise, it is not always necessary to let you get on the boat.
Super Yacht Party: Monaco Yacht Show
Monaco is a small European country, but it has cultivated the world-famous super yacht show-Monaco Yacht Show. The exhibition is held in Monaco in late September every year.

Genoa Yacht Show
Italian Yacht Paradise: Genoa Yacht Show
Compared with the practicality of American yachts, Italian yachts are more famous for their elegance and fashion. And from the point of view of the yachts sold in the mainland, the slightly better sales value of Italian yachts also seems to indicate that the European style (especially the Italian style) is more popular with mainland consumers. Therefore, if you love the style of Apennines, it is definitely a good choice to go directly to the Genoa Yacht Show, the largest comprehensive yacht show in Italy.

Leisure time on the sea
"Borrowing" is a half-day leisure: Let's talk about the "tide" things of chartering
In recent years, with the rapid economic development, Chinese people's awareness and acceptance of yacht culture is also increasing. According to the incomplete statistics of the organizer of the 2012 China (Shanghai) International Boat Show, it is known as the "vane of the yacht industry" This year's exhibition claimed a total of 2.2 billion transactions, a record high. Among them, “cheap boats” with prices ranging from 300,000 to 600,000 yuan are the most popular. The popularity of “from rich to white-collar workers” in the yacht industry is becoming increasingly prominent, and the consumer class of yachts is gradually forming.
Unlike ordinary land vehicles such as automobiles, in addition to fuel power and daily maintenance costs, China still has considerable restrictions on yacht parking and driving qualifications. Therefore, for most people, chartering a yacht through a yacht club is a more economical way to experience it. Surfing, swimming, diving, sea fishing, talks, banquets, parties, even marriage proposal, travel ... you may also choose a sunny or memorable day, following the following rental methods, invite your loved ones Friends or business partners send their love yachts together and "rent" for half a day.
Yacht party fun

"Last year happened to be my son's 18th birthday. We decided to celebrate his birthday in a more special way. And in 2010 I once attended a small-scale sea party with friends in Hong Kong, so I came up with the idea of choosing a yacht. For children studying in an international school, it is necessary to invite 4 foreign friends. The club has specially arranged and planned a bilingual host reception and a live magic show. Regarding the relaxed and active party atmosphere that night and the beautiful night view of Pujiang, family and friends are still raving . Although the 3-hour rental fee is a bit higher than the traditional banquet, this unique memory of the guest and host still makes me feel value for money. "
Yacht party recommended boat type: medium-sized yachts such as Sea Stella53, Artemis48

I have been thinking about how to choose the most beautiful scene to show her heart since last summer. Candlelight restaurant? Lawn fireflies? Bund sky private room? ... After careful consideration several times, I finally chose to create a "two-person world" on the yacht's water. First, because my girlfriend loves the sea scene of "Titanic", and secondly, I want to express myself in this way "Tian Gong Jian, Haiyue Shanmeng's determination."
Recommended type of yacht proposal: small yachts such as BAVARIA38
Reason for recommendation: Proposal is generally best suited to be done in a sweet space that is relatively intimate and intimate. In addition to the protagonist, sometimes the man will invite several close friends to witness.

Yacht fishing and leisure
Fish hunting is still the most popular yacht leisure. Imagine putting aside the troubles of the world and leisurely "waiting for the wisher to hook" between the blue sky and the blue sky.
However, because sea fishing requires reasonable selection of the sea area and climate, it is recommended that friends who are not very experienced in sea fishing can choose to get hooked through the collective sea plan organized by the yacht club regularly. The collective travel plan is generally coordinated by the yacht club to coordinate the time and ship type. According to Mr. Zhou Rui, the operation manager of Shanghai Yihong Hess Club Yacht Club, the most popular sea fishing route is the Shengsi Archipelago route. Hess will organize a 2-day Shengsi sea experience every month from May to October. The single quotation is about 10,000 yuan. If you want to travel with friends and family of about 10 people, you can also choose a more free and flexible charter program. The whole package price of the whole boat is about 100,000 yuan.
Special reminder: Because yachting involves a series of more complicated application filing procedures, it is best to make appointments for non-members to travel about 1 month in advance.
Tips for yacht charter
Some yacht clubs offer VIP prepaid card (membership card) discounts, that is, customers who pre-store a certain amount in the card can enjoy yacht rental discounts. For example, guests of Yihong Yacht can enjoy a 30% discount on boat rental with the pre-deposited amount of 100,000 yuan. Individuals and companies with frequent leases may wish to consider such preferential policies for prepaid cards.
For safety reasons, the upper limit of the number of passengers stipulated on a single yacht is generally 12 people. For large-scale marine activities, it is recommended to rent yachts or large cruise ships in stages or in batches.
Some yacht clubs will deduct some or all of the high deposit when canceling the reservation. It is recommended that you pay attention to the payment method of the rental fee and the economic risks that may result from cancellation when booking.
