In the past, getting out on the water meant not only the tremendous expense of boat ownership, but also hours of work taking care of your investment. Now, Blue Pacific Yacht Lease offers you an easier and more practical way to go cruising.
Fixed & Variable Lease Explanation
Thank you very much for your interest in our Yacht Lease program. We have both, sail and power boats available in this program. We offer two Yacht Lease programs, i.e. The Fixed Lease and the Variable Lease.
The difference is that the “Fixed Lease” offers 32 days of usage on the boat of your choice. The 32 days will have to be broken up into the four calendar quarters, meaning that you will collect 8 days of boating time per quarter. You can however put two calendar quarters together and during the shoulder period of the two quarters, for example: April/May/June – July/August/September, at the end of June and in the beginning of July, collect 16 days by putting the two 8 day periods together.
The “Variable Lease” allows you to choose the amount of days you want – 20 or more – and take up to half of them in our peak summer quarter (July to September) and the other half at any time during the remaining 9 months of the year.
You can pre-book up to 10 months in advance so you are able to get your summer time on the water or you can book last minute if the yacht is available. There are a few booking restrictions that help to ensure that all members get an opportunity to book long weekends and other peak times. The pricing is as follows:
Upon entering the Yacht Lease program, a one time, non-refundable membership fee is due. On or before the first day of leaving our dock on the respective boat, a security deposit will have to be posted. This is a fully refundable deposit provided that you do not damage the boat. This deposit will stay with BPYC for the duration of the Yacht Lease program. You also pay a monthly fee for the use of the yacht. That fee is determined by the yacht chosen and the total number of days that you commit to the program. You also have a option to add additional days at a 20% discount off the daily rate. The Yacht Lease contract is a one year contract. If you decide that you are interested in a 2nd year then a new contract is signed. This allows you to try a different yacht for the 2nd year or stay on the same yacht.
